What a mess. As in the law changes unilaterally made by Australia, this dispute and the Italian situation highlight the need for the RLIF to be given real authority and preside over law changes and governing national body disputes such as this one and that their decisions be adhered to world wide. 

 

The boss of the RFL and the NRL and the NZ RL need to get together and thrash out this matter. They control the money in the sport and money talks.

 

The USRL even as the situation is with the RLIF at present should contact them and petition to have the USRL recognised as the governing body of RL in the USA.  The dying AMNRL has server it's purpose but has lost it's way and needs to be replaced with the bigger and more progressive USARL.

 

In the same way that the welsh RL have split from the RFL and now govern the game in Wales, the governing body in the USA, whoever is eventually in charge need to run the game for the benefit of RL in the USA and be free from foreign interference as opposed to foreign assistance which is another animal entirely.

I took a little bit of flak during the World Cup because I said that while it was entertaining and competitive, it wasn't a World Cup at all.  The bulk of the teams were reliant on Australia or England or New Zealand and those that weren't got knocked out of the box quickly.  Nice to see one of the US clubs agreed with me that this does more harm than good.

I guess so.

 

Brooklyn Kings, apparently.

Oneida were possibly hubristic in hindsight, as having two teams in Boston weakened both clubs.  Regretfully, having one club in Boston is probably wiser.  Having seen it for myself, Copenhagen could split into a few clubs, but we are sticking with one in the whole city.

 

New Haven are just gone and that is a shame.

We are looking to relaunch Oneida FC in the future (Possibly in the state of New Hampshire). We have a bit of interest in our u23 program from players in NH and a coach in South East Maine so the viability of a NH/Oneida relaunch is certainly something for us to monitor going forward.

What kind of budgets do these clubs have? How about AMNRL or USARL... how much money do they have?

So the AMNRL aren't members of the RLIF, so how can they be the 'officially recognized governing body'? Also why are they allowed to enter qualifiers without being a member?

The USA are ranked number 10, so they are recognised.

Our budget for this season will be between $20000 & $25000. All will need to be raised by sponsorship, player dues, memberships and merchandise sales.

Thank you for your answer. 

Do you reckon that's the typical budget for a USARL/AMNRL?

Some clubs could probably run a season on $7500 with a free facility and not buying a new uniform each year. As we are right in the city costs are a bit higher and we'll also have the biggest travel costs now the Axemen don't have to fly to each game.

 

Some clubs will probably spend $10000 while others maybe $50000. It all depends on the $$ you can generate really.

So, the whole fuss about the US having semi-pro RL is BS, right?

Yeah there isn't semi-pro teams as we would define them in the UK (I'm from the UK).

 

When I first arrived I asked about people throwing the 'semi-pro' tag around and was told that in the US it is classed as semi-pro if the players don't pay any dues (subs). If that is correct then some of the teams probably fit that definition. We charged no dues the season I arrived (2012) but had to charge them in 2013 due to the owner moving on.
