    Time for a rethink ?

    The RFL are supposed to be running the whole game.

    If you go right back you'll find I predicted the problems with players on match days and my new prediction is once the `A` teams start the NCL will be the first to be raided by the championship teams and this could inflict the final body blow for some clubs.

    He knew exactly what I meant and once the `A` teams start to play the true state of the game will be exposed.

    We are moving on and adjusting to the changing times, have you ever wondered why the RFL never kept the Pennine website up to date, have you ever wondered why you can only find anything to do with winter rugby tucked away in some remote corner of the RFL website, have you ever wondered why any potential new teams are never told they have an option of playing winter, summer or both. Guess not!!! I've wondered where have all the ex-amateur administrators that the RFL used to convince clubs and leagues to go to summer gone to these days ?

    Just think how much better we'd be doing if we only had to compete with the Xbox and not all the other summer distractions as well.

    Union, hockey and football teams do OK, we did OK before and again it's about availability on match days.

    I and many others don't think so and lets not forget, the kids game has also shrunk since moving to summer and I'm not exactly a dinosaur, we've tried the summer and was very successful but we also identified the downfall in what looks like a very good concept, like many say "you haven't got a game without a referee" well it's proving (like last weekend, 10 games out of 22 played) you haven't got a game without players and the stream is drying up very fast

    DR is giving the state of the game in the championship a false reading which will be found out as soon as the `A` team league kicks off and DR stops, this will leave a lot of clubs in turmoil, they will then have to raid the NCL for players, the NCL clubs will then raid the regional clubs which in turn will see more clubs going to the wall.

    If the National league 3 was part of the NCL St Albans will have had two cracks at the NCL

    But the best so called months are the same best so called months were teams can not fill a team sheet, we are supposed to be rugby players not Judith Chalmers, on average I bet we only loose around 2 weekends maybe 3 in the period between Dec - Feb because of the weather, now balance that against the games not played over the last 8 weeks because the common known reasons not including the world cup, its a no brainer.

    I honestly believe they had it right when the ran the RLC in a short season.

    They only switched it for PERSONAL financial gain and I'm sure this is the only reason it hasn't totally moved back, I'm also sure certain people (Some on here who seem to have gone quiet or just simply opened another account in a different name) moved the NCL to summer for pats on the back, write their names in amateur folk law and probably looking for a knighthood. How many balls a season do clubs get these days, how much do NCL clubs get towards transport now, not going to go on about full clubhouses and players falling other themselves to get a game.

    Because DR is giving the championship and championship 1 a false reading and Wait till next season once the Super League introduce an `A` team league

    It went from 3 to 4 divisions once it went to summer (2012 or 13) the idea was to simply add the Conference league South, I think only St Albans and Gateshead made the switch so they had to dangle the carrot to half decent well run winter regional teams.
  15. Didn't he leave because the turnstiles got rusty and if were all honest and had a few quid spare we'd all probably buy Bradford Bulls.
