Not one mention of Netball or Woman's Football anywhere. Super League is Rugby League.

 

Looking at your tabs you need to get out more.

 

Seriously, £500K is worth it.

 

Edit: I don't think RL ever had an identity crisis, it sat fine alongside RU and football etc. It's now that I believe the brand is looking dated, possibly even unsellable because it isn't clear what it stands for.

Oh right, BBC had "no fixtures found in the next 7 days" for Women's football inc. WSL.

 

Anyroad, I think we're getting into unnecessary nitty-gritty hair-splitting here.

 

Booooooooo, down with Super League!

 

Yeah.  I call it Stooopid League, cos that's what it is.

500k to get Gav out more?

 

Seems a tad excessive.

If Putin has a Super League or two we really must change.

This might be a bit controversial and i'm prepared to be shot down but maybe the problem is that we (rugby league) share part of our name with Union. Now where I come from the vast majority of people have no interest in"Rugby" and the dislike or indifference in my experience is based on either playing a bit of Rugby Union on a dreary PE class in December or accidentally watching 10 minutes of the six nations whilst searching for the football scores on Ceefax.

Maybe to garner wider appeal the spirt could be called Northern Rules Football or name it after the town where League was born (Huddersfield?)

Thereby making it seem an even more minority sport than it already is.

The thread is going great, no evidence "Superleague" is a poor brand, and certainly no better suggestions.

Is NRF an M62 version of Aussie Rules Football?

I really don't think you're in  a position to judge, particularly considering the other thread where you posted "statistics" about where players were born. What do you know about evidence?

 

Planet Parksider is back on ignore. It's a shame we don't have a delete button.
