Question if we all butt out how do we take the game forward ?
Clubs left the Nwc on the understanding that the standards would improve , less cancelled games etc, etc etc .
It seems on reflection the opposite as occurred so if we don't debate these issues / facts how else can we put corrective action at various forums ?
We don't move forward by burying our heads in the sand , we face some tough challenges to keep our game from collapsing I see worrying trends developing and come across many disillusioned volunteers who are all thinking of leaving the game , but lets ignore it shall we ?
But you're not 'debating'; you're not offering solutions either. You're just sniping, and you're not on your own.
Total respect to the clubs that CHOSE to switch to summer. Total understanding of why some clubs preferred to stay in winter. Each to their own (is that too hard?).
If summer doesn't work for some clubs, they can CHOOSE to switch back. If others who didn't take the plunge initially now want to make the move, the door is still open. Each to their own. Make your own CHOICES and let others live by theirs.
Sadly, one or two people (including some who are old enough to know better) don't seem grown up enough to manage to abide by this simple principle. I'm sick of seeing people carping every time a fixture in one competition or other is defaulted or some scurrilous rumour goes around that club x is struggling for players.
Summer? Winter? Who gives a monkeys? It's all the same game.
Unfortunately, rugby league has been held back for 118 years by petty, small minded people with petty small minded agendas. It seems nothing much has changed.
