How many football clubs folded through the excesses though?
Not really. When they were throwing money around like confetti in football, who would have thought that it (football ) a genuinely popular game with genuinely big money could ever hit any financial problems ? Not many.
If RU wants to encourage that spendthrift mentality then that is up to them. But RL should concentrate on what is good for RL because it will end in tears for RU.
I can only assume all the old G&T set like Dennis Thatcher are not involved in RU anymore as their false choppers would be flying out to hear such talk.
The RU clubs that want to spend spend spend have rich backers willing to fund them, what will happen if it goes ahead is as Mr Wind Up posted, a small number of clubs will win everything and the others will pick up crumbs, much like football.
