With the recent pressures to raise the salary cap....what if this was allowed but for a Fee, 50per cent surcharge? This money could then go to expansion clubs??

Also why not split the sky money 14/16 ways? 12/14 for the clubs, 1 for parachute payments (if p&r)/ community game (if no p and r ) and one part for marketing and commercial department?

Silly ideas but hey worth a thought. .......

Loving the idea of parachute payments, this is a must in any high cost Promotion/Relegation sport.

Anyone know if this is how it works in the US?  I know that in the NBA and MLB you can go past the salary cap but there are financial penalties for doing so.


Cheer up, RL is actually rather good

Yup - Luxery Tax certainly in Baseball. There is no set limit to spending but those beyond a collectively bargained limit must pay a percentage which is redistributed to smaller teams.
