You are right David, we do need more of this and we have the likes of Garry Scholfield in todays RLE, Kyle Amor on twitter etc all saying the same thing. Imagine if we could watch that calibre of player every two weeks.
Then again the same old naysayers will shout loudest and nip any momentum in the bud.
I was was proud to be West Cumbrian this last week cheering on a team from a different country along with workmates from ten miles south. The rugby was fantastic and the ground was rocking. It just shows what can be achieved in this corner of the country.
Even the Haven coach, Dave Woods was saying that there should be a SL club up here and said that the two clubs should be working together towards that.
However, we have heard this so many times from various sources, usually from people who have been involved in the game, not mere fans, and, as you say, the naysayers seem to always be the one's that are listened to by the clubs.

I remember when .............................
"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.
