Dear me....


Simon I've got nothing against any club. I hope every club survives I don't want any club to go bust etc. But the RFL are making a mockery of our sport and if it takes their plans to fail for the top men at red hall to vacate their positions then so be it as drastic as it may seem. I'm sick to death of the RFL running a very good sport into the ground. They only care about the so called big teams in SL and SL its self.

The short sightedness of the CHAMPIONSHIP chairmen are to blame for allowing it to happen; It is they that are running their clubs into oblivion;

The point I was trying to get across is I would rather 2 feeder clubs get relegated than say the likes of barrow who are trying to build from their own back yard. I understand that clubs have had to go down this route but why batley have I will never know unless they have no intention of SL. But the start point of all this is the RFL or the RFL being dictated to by the SL clubs. Someone said the other day would you rather have blatter as the chairman of RL. Before SL I would of said definitely not but I'm getting to the point where yes blatter would be better.

Don't blame the RFL don't blame the S/L clubs Every club had a choice and some chairmen think its better for there club It will cause unrest in the championship with signed players it will cause the clubs to be unsettled and I don't think it will be as good for the clubs as people think Lets see what happens

The top 5 will still be the same teams no doubt about that. It's the relegation battle that this will effect and the last 3 play off places.

With that comment you must believe our sport is in safe hands then? I've watch our sport for years and I've seen some terrible times in our sport but I've never seen it as bad as it is now.

I think the York fans on here have short memories. Go back a few years when York folded, I beleive York wanted £30k to stay afloat and the RFL and SL allowed York to go bust. I remember this because I got in a heated argument with Bradford Bulls supporters who quoted "not interested if its not Super League". From that day it has become increasingly obvious to me of the inequalities between SL and the other divisions, to the extent I now will not attend any Challenge Cup Finals/Internationals etc. Super league clubs are only doing DR for their benefit they do not give a monkeys about the lower leagues. It used to be SL clubs against Championship clubs,it is now championship clubs against each other.
I do realise 1 or 2 fev fans on this forum have a "holier than thou"attitude but I know these things come and go and we can be in the lowest division in the future { like we was in 2007) but the Championship is now being devalued for the main benefit of SL clubs. No one will convince me otherwise.
Rant over - I am now going for a lie down!!!

So to sum up: You have boycotted all Challenge Cup Finals and Internationals since 2002, and gauged the thoughts of the SuperLeague clubs themselves, from having a barney with a few tight Bradford fans?

Thats some mightily impressive stubborness.
