It appears to be an opinion column by Neil Barker, the MEN RL corespondent, and it's hard to fault his argument on this occasion.
Sorry Pottsy, but got to fundamentally disagree here.
Neil Barker says
Koukash is a very wealthy man yet even he is struggling to set up a vibrant fan base.
Where is the support for a Manchester team going to come from?
And what about Swinton Lions, Oldham and Rochdale Hornets and Leigh Centurions?
They need support and financial help long before money is thrown at some new Manchester venture.
i.e. this excuse for a journalist is basing his argument on
a) Koukash 'struggling' with Salford - judged after just a handful of games
Money from the RFL is being 'thrown' at the new venture - I can't see this being the case, looks like a private inititive being facilitated by the RFL (and why not?)
c) The RFL should instead be giving financial help to some other local clubs - because they're 'traditional'.
Can't believe the MEN are knocking the venture before its even got off the ground.
