If you get 2 rugby league fans in a room you will get 3 opinions on where the game is going wrong! Disagreement and squabbling is fine in football or even union as they are big enough to accommodate the dissenters, we look like 2 bald men fighting over a comb. The various factions within RL are like the People's Revolutionary Front of Judaea and the Revolutionary People's Front of Judaea. We distrust EVERYONE involved and fear their motives. Just for once it might be nice if we had to wait for the first people to rubbish a good news story in our sport to come from outside the game.
Ok I know what you mean but,
The point of the thread was to point out that despite the switch to summer there appear more games being called off than ever before, we are now at the height of summer and the majority of leagues are now having a summer break, the majority of the people on the ground seem to think it has been a bad move and no better than before, with less revenue, lower standards and increased selection problems due to unavailability
The RFL advertise that we have 250,000 people playing the game where are they?
The RFL advertise we have a 16% increase in 16-18 year olds, 52% increase in open age what is wrong with asking where are they?
Do you think the Professional Academy's are good for the amateur game with the amount of players lost with the majority not coming back into the amateur game with teams folding at 15/16
What if any is the legacy of the World Cup?
Nigel Wood says the game has never been in a better place with the record turnover, the majority of people agree league and teams are folding, there appears an alarming decrease in the amount of players playing competitive RL and most of this is blamed on the demise of the local development officers, if we have increased revenue in the game why are these not re-employed.
I would say the majority of my list is fact I only ask questions, NEC please feel free to say I am just complaining, please answer a few of my statements and also give me some factual positives without the spin
