The league is already a laughing stock? What do you mean by that?

This whole fiasco has elements of farce. If the consequences weren't so serious it would be hilarious. The outsie world is llokig at this and laughing at the mess the RFL have created.

Your answer is a plea to the fans? That's just but how you run an organisation. It smacks of a pub league solution.

Yeah, clubs do fold. It's a situation we try to avoid, not create.

The idea needs to be too find a solution, not an awful compromise.

This wholesorry mess smacks of something conncocted by drunks. Depserate times ometimes call for desperate measures. I see the Keighly chairman, in his quest for an EGM is stll calling for a 13 team hampionship and is pillioring the league for all the delay which will make solutions scacer and more problematic.


In Topic: Eagles reveal new stadium plans on Don Valley site

Yesterday, 01:39 PM

What was halifax's contribution to the materialisation of the finally almost complete upgrading of the already in existence Shay?

 

What was Doncaster's and Leigh's contribution to their new stadiums?

Don't know, don't care. All I know is that they were completed. Doncaster were in the mix as a joint tennent at the Keepmote as were Halifax at the Shay. I would also imagine that when the LSV was built it was with the Centurions in mind as the main tennant. The oint I ws making is that several stadia have been built/modernised for RL and that all is not doom and gloom ion that direction as the pposter was inferring. Whilst we areon the subject Fev have also seriously upgraded their stadium as well.

Leigh were not the impetus behind their new stadium, far from it. Halifax didn't build a new Stadium, they moved to an existing one.

 

Great news from Sheffield.

I never said Leigh were the impetus. I ws just saying that it got built despite scepticism. The Shay has been redevelopped to the point it in inrecogniseable from the derelict mes that it ws hhen Halifax Town were the sole occupantss

Yesterday, 01:19 PM

which ones, give us the facts and figures, where are these significant attendance decreases since 2012?

London, Warrington, Hull, Wakefield, Huddersfield, Catalans. Maybe small declines at Leeds and Widnes.
