With thinking like this. Is it any wonder that Super League can't get a sponsor. The lunatics have taken over the asylum.

Why not have 24 divisions of 1?Each team is crowned champions then it's 12 divisions of 2 (bottom sides eliminated) right down to the last team standing. Then all 24 start the play offs etc etc
The season never actually ends thus generating more income. Its a winner

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

How about leaving it as it is with conditional p&r.

I can't find anything in there about any club being relegated from the top tier 12 or promoted from the second tier 12?

 

Has the Sun missed this or are we essentially looking at a 12 club closed Superleague with a 8 team play off?

Not a very good proposal IMO. Too many games.

That's obvious. You seem to hate a lot of things.

Imho this kind of proposal works best with 10 team divisions split into 6/8/6.

It is worth pointing out though that Leeds played 31 games last year to win the GF.

How about leaving it EXACTLY as it is. Featherstone Rovers, Leigh etc seem to have embraced the concept and spirit of licencing and are working hard to gain promotion to SuperLeague on a sustainable basis, safe in the knowledge that one of them is going to be in SL at  the next round.

I think the difference is each team will play around 30 games.

 

Although the teams are proposed to come in a round later in the Cup, which itself throws up another problem in that it'll probably be the last 16 taken by 12 teams, no mention of the teams further down either.

Messing around with the Challenge Cup in this way is I think the most potentially damaging bit of the revised proposal of nuttiness. Rugby league doesn't have any terrestrial exposure outside this and it's not like we're over-run with competitions with naming rights.

I hate to sound like one of the Four Yorkshiremen but: proper divisions played properly, please.

Not so much resigned as lost the renewal form.
