Dont know about anyone else, but I'm finally starting to get the feelgood factor again about RL after 5-6 years in the wilderness and being downright peed of with RL - after reading the new proposal and after watching Big Nige yesterday on the red button. I was really encouraged by what he said and thought he came across very well.

I really cant wait for the changes and for the stupid 3year licensing guff to end.

Bring it on! If I were a millionaire I would consider investing again in my local club

Does this mean the Championship supporters like Trojan (sorry - first name that sprang to mind!) are going to buy tickets for the World Cup and the Challenge Cup Final now? ;)

Feelgood factor has just left town.

If I was a millionaire, I would be withdrawing my money from the game because it would all get wasted on short term fix, second rate Aussie.

And I shan't bother with the World Cup, because we can look for to another 30 years of youth development taking a back seat - all so Fev and Leigh can get relegated every other year.

But youth development is only happening properly at the SL clubs. The rest are slowly rotting. The new proposals will allow the other clubs to develop youth. Regarding Aussies - I would reduce imports to one per club in SL.

Agreed, except that I can't see Leigh challenging any time soon. Fev and Halifax maybe.

Shall we do a deal? You SL fans buy some tickets for the NR Cup Final and Championship Grand Final and we'll have a think about returning the favour.

Perhaps not - but there is a chance we might. And that'll do for me a thousands of other fans in the championship - inc. the lapsed ones.

People said the same about Wigan Athletic....

Why should youth development take a back seat because of this? Despite the obstacles which licensing puts in the way of championship clubs I think you'll find Fev have continued and self funded their robust youth development programme while many other more illustrious members of the Professional game have to some extent abandoned theirs. I don't see any good reason why Fev or the other clubs shouldn't have good youth structures just because of the proposed changes.

God forbid we try to make the game meaningful for all. The game, as a whole, has realised that its time for change and I share the optimism.

Yes indeed.

Hudgell will feel good he doesn't have to spend so much if his club will be competing against CC clubs. Fulton and O'Connor will feel the same. Maybe Hughes will also feel good that he can keep London going in cheaper second tier SL. Abbot and Nahaboo will also feel good about not having to spend so much just to survive.

I suspect this has all come about in reality because nobody wants to invest millions in their clubs every year when there's a glass ceiling.

What have the NRC Final and Championship GF got to do with SL?

The international game and the Challenge Cup have something to do with the Championships.

Kind of a strange argument based on unreasonable and unrelated demands!

It's weird stuff

Attending rugby games featuring the best players in the world is apparently a 'favour' and the reasons people have given for virtually boycotting the World Cup are unbelievable well maybe not when I think about it.
Nobody has to of course: but it does illustrate the self serving parochial attitutudes of some people.

The big dream of franchised game has been shown up for what it is. A waste of time.

 

Its just a shame that so much damage has been done to the game outside SL.
