In Topic: Higham re-joins Leigh (merged threads)

Disappointed to see him go, he has given Wire great service and will be missed. Always performed consistently well, a superb pro that any team would be glad to have. Hoping that Leigh do get promoted, so that he can end his career as a Superleague player, which would be fitting.

No-one anywhere should need government permission to play your chosen game, sport is about opportunity for everyone to be as good as they can be at something they enjoy doing. No-one should be arrested for the "crime" of organising their favourite sport. No sport should have to be governed by a rival sport, especially one that has a proven track record of trying to suppress and eliminate the sport in question.

If looking for a model for a genuine pan European competition which allows expansion into new areas for any team that wishes to join, then it is worth noting what the KHL is doing. http://en.wikipedia....l_Hockey_League Russia's main ice hockey competition has teams from Helsinki, Bratislava, Zagreb, Sochi, all the way over to Kazakhstan and Vladivostok. Expansion teams must meet the criteria with regard to finances, arenas and the like before being granted a licence. The KHL has expanded at a fast rate and there is talk that Milan and even a team from Japan will be admitted in the near future. Obviously the team owners need to have deep pockets, the cost of travel alone is astronomical. If the goal of your competition is to grow your game rapidly then this model works. if you are content to let your clubs decide how they want to organise their competition to maximise self-interest, then do not be surprised that expansion is nowhere near top of the agenda when the structures are determined.
