RL Structure

They will be in SL 1 at the start of the year. If they are good enough they will be in SL1 at the start of the next year.

 

It's just a bit like saying if a top club has a run of injuries at the moment and doesn't make the playoffs then the system is broken.

 

Exactly.

Injuries are a part of sport. If they aren't covered, then that's not exactly a very well run club.

How is any other club meant to become "well run" if they never get the chance? I don't like this monopoly that some people insist should be at the top table because they got in there at the right time to be honest. Licensing has forced standards up, but I think that's more of a catalyst rather than a perfect system as it had also weeded out the poorly run administrators (not poorly run clubs as they've just stayed in there) and not given clubs that are well run in the lower leagues a chance to replace them like I think it should.

I find it boring that it's the same teams over and over again to be honest.

 

The SL is not a closed shop, the 3 year licensing enables clubs like Widnes to join if they deserve it. It's the best way forward for the UK game.

 

The only argument people seem to have for P+R are personal reasons.

 

P+R had decades to grow the game but it didn't and yet people expect things to change if it's brought back...

Which team do you support?

Unless you had a very narrow self serving view of the sport

Why would that matter?

He is accusing that people who back the proposals as having a personal interest. Which I assume he means it suites their club. I want to know which club he supports as this may not suite his club. And I do have a very self serving view of sport. I want the club I support to be playing and winning any game the play in and win at the highest level they can. I am a supporter of my club first and the game 2nd.

Trouble is - if there's no game, there's no-one for your club to play.

So you wouldn't have a club.

im pretty sure it was mentioned that staying as is is an option. I think people are naturally focusing on the one radical option.

The option to stay with the current structure has already been rejected (thank god).

Oh i agree. But I want what is best for my club first, and proposed plans imo will give my club a better chance of playing in the SL. Obviously I may change my views after my club had won the SL grabs final 10 years in a row. But until then, that's how I see things. I can quite understand why fans of Widnes, Wakefield, London and Salford to name but a few are against it. But to say that they are against it for the good of the game doesn't wash with me. The majority want what is best for their club.

Again +1.

I think I'll butt out of this now. You appear to be beating me to the post..... almost verbatim!

Including the folk making the decisions at Red Hall.

That's what's wrong with the game.

That's exactly what I'm getting at sod the game as long as things suit your own narrow demands. Sadly you aren't alone

Still I can respect the fact that you aren't hypocritical enough to invoke some disingenuous and selective construct of fairness and justice.

I know what you are getting at but what it would end up with is "useless salford favoured by RFL and bent system blocks progressive featherstone Rovers" the kid of thing we want to get away from?

I never said don't have promotion, I'm all for more teams to come in, especially if they're cashed up!

I want P&R but the only way it will do is if the 2nd tier is Full. Like I said in the origional post. There are pros and cons to both. Even the option 3 the RFL have mentioned has its plus points. Whatever the outcome its time fans stopped moaning and got on with watching this great game

I want I want I want

I want a 1957 stratocaster but it would bankrupt me and be the end of my marriage if I went out and bought one: well maybe not that, but it would cause a serious rift in our otherwise blissful relationship

Mate you can always have what you want
