Seems like more and more people are coming alive to the RFL and it's Dick Dastardly tricks these days, I remember being shouted down years ago for saying so.


Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

And so it begin's..............
 
Mr Gent advised that the process has started to investigate other National Governing Bodies of Sports’ membership schemes, such as British Cycling and UK athletics. The main purpose of the membership scheme is to allow members and the RFL to communicate effectively with one another. At this point, no cost implications have been explored. 
 
Mr Gent did clarify that Sport England have challenged the RFL to seek further revenue to reduce the reliance on Sport England funding, particularly for the “core costs” of the Community Game and this is being taken into consideration when researching others sports’ membership schemes. 
 
What that really means is...........
 
"We don't want to charge you all anything we were only doing this to improve communication, its Sport England that have told us we have to look at how much we can get out of you for no apparent reason!!!"
 
Oh really, can you tell us all then just how much funding is currently allocated to the running of the Community game by the RFL, what it is actually spent on and what percentage will not be there in the future and you now need to look at generating from the Community game as a consequence Mr Gent?

Communication is expensive these days Taxi Egg............have you seen the price of e-mails lately?

 

Twitter and other social media coats a fortune to subscribe to, did'nt you know that?

 

Not sure I am to clear on the price of "Core costs" though, its a bit of a broadbrush term that.......are you aware of the financial implications relating to core costs?

When the R FL where throwing money towards the amateur game in the summer, what did they actually give to the BARLA regional leagues?

Any idea why that was the case?

 

The RFL currently chuck 50K a year at the NCL just to subsidise travel costs in that League!

Throwing money?  4 free balls a season for a while...


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Is that to keep them on side? from the recent NCL survey results everything seems fine or the majority of those that responded said things are ok

I think that is a very cynical view Defender1.

So if the RFL supports the NCL, it's a bribe?  I presume if they withdrew the funding you would castigate them for abandoning the grassroots?

No.....more that you would think all leagues at grassroots would carry as much importance and warrant as much support, financial or otherwise as the next.

Strategically the RFL have financially supported certain grassroots leagues and have offered to financially support/acquire others, which at that time was rebuffed due to the alleged "uncomfortable" nature of the direct approach to individual reps on behalf of said leagues.

The point being, they know damn well they can't support everyone so have only put eggs in certain baskets to the benefit of themselves via the political strength/weight it brings as a result.

Recent discussions have been had at Community Board level regarding what the "consequences" will be for those grassroots leagues who chose to remain officially outside of the RFL umbrella come the start of 2015.

A case of sign up or else, hardly the correct approach from the NGB if a regional leagues membership doesn't feel it is appropriate to fall under the RFL's governance and policy.
