Option 1 - Super League reverts to a 12-team competition (from 14) and a 10 or 12-team Championship, with one club promoted and relegated each year.

Option 2 - A two-division Super League with each division comprising 10 teams.

Option 3 - Two divisions of 12 in Super League, with teams playing each other once to provide 11 fixtures before splitting into three groups of eight in mid-season and then playing each other home and away to provide 14 more matches.

 

which option for you and why?

 

me option 1 keep it simple and super league can not properly fund more than 12 teams to the requirements needed to make the game high quality.

 

my order of preference is

 

 

option 1

then

option 2

then option 3

 

these 3 options are the only options available for super league format from 2015 onwards.

I honestly don't know what the difference is between options 1 and 2

 2 teams in the top league I think (and potentially 2 in the lower league).  Also P&R numbers not defined in option 2.

 

Personally for me 10/12 team superleague (with full time palyers) and a championship structure beneath with part-time semi-pros.  No P&R and review every few years (say 3) to see if we can take another couple of teams commercially.

 

For me the gulf between pro and semi-pro (and Full time v Part time) is too great to be conducive to P&R.

Option 1 make it a straight forward question with no  10/12 12/14  its either one or the other.

You will finish up with another debate on option 1. A well it is Rugby League.

Whilst I like Option 3 - or a similar version that I wrote on here about 6 months ago - I fear it may be too radical at the current time, and I'd be happy with Option 1.

 

I don;t think any option will fix all the games ills, nor will any kill the game off. There are pro's an cons to them all.

A streamlined Super League should at least raise intensity and prompt a move back to top five playoffs.

It should also free up £2.4m pa in central funding which could go a long way towards helping the 10 Championship clubs move towards full time professionalism.

which option for you and why?

This - shake the lot of them up and damn the consequences, it will be fascinating.

The reconstruction debate is a bit like the one happening in Scottish (Premier) League.

 

Perhaps it is time for the two of SPL and Rugby League's Super League to sit down and learn from each other i.e. the advantages and disadvantages of implementing something is to see if the idea used by one but not the other could be implemented in the other competition to improve it or not.

 

Like would super League benefit from having all seated stadia like the Scottish Premier League has.

 

Would the Scottish Premier League benefit from implementing a wage cap like happens in rugby League's Super League. 

 

a bbc sport article from the 2001 compared the two competitions plus the county cricket championship, the football League's championship (then call Nationwide Division 1) and Rugby Union's then called Guinness Premiership in the article.

Last paragraph absolutely spot on. Think a lot of people need to realise this.

serious point

 

8 teams super league playing each other team in the league 4 times

 

or a 16 Team super league playing each other team in the league 2 times for 30 games per super league edition. 

 

The reason I ask is quality v quantity

the smaller the number of teams in Super league group/division the higher the quality of the teams played each week but the more times the same teams in super league will have to play each other in order that the fixtures played by each club in each edition of super League is a close to 28 games as possible.

 

the larger the number of teams in Super league group/division the higher the lower the quality of teams played each week but the less times the same teams in super league will have to play each other in order that the fixtures played by each club in each edition of super League is a close to 28 games as possible.

Wonder if you'd say the same if Huddersfield were stuck in div 2 ?

It would also condem the championship clubs who finish outside the top 10 to financal ruin. If this idea is going to happen it should wait unti after a season where daul reg does not slew the balance
