But you keep telling us that Mo knew what he was talking about and you also tell us that there's no place in SL for Fax'. Mo obviously thought differently.
Mo said there weren't enough fans, quality players and money men in the game for it to professionalise successfully.
He wanted the clubs to pare down to less in number and bigger in size.
They didn't mainly because the diehard fans who were probably a noisy minority would not even discuss it and as such the clubs fight each other for resources and one clubs success is another clubs downfall.
Currently there's rumours Koukash/Noble will try to take Paterson and Dobson off HKR. That's an example of a lack of quality players. If Salford start winning fans will come back but if someone else starts losing fans will melt away.
Mo was right in what he said and it has clearly IMHO come to pass. Seventeen years on and Superleague remains a mess.
After Mo proposed his club structure it didn't happen, and halifax went on to fail badly seven years on.
I think the idea that because Mo thought Halifax would make a go of it and they didn't doesn't prove anything other than on Halifax he thought wrong.
It doesn't discredit his overall analysis, and it doesn't affect my humble opinion that Halifax aren't big enough a club to stand alone and succeed in Superleague from their own resources. They eventually showed they didn't have money by 2003 they showed it again when the applied for SL last, their crowds have never got above a level that could turn a profit and currently only a handful of Halifax lads play SL regularly.
Yes Mo thought different but didn't have a crystal ball, so what's your point?
