500k to get Gav out more?

 

Seems a tad excessive.

 

500k would barely touch the sides mate... ;)

If Putin has a Super League or two we really must change.

 

I saw these gals via the internet a couple of times this season.

This might be a bit controversial and i'm prepared to be shot down but maybe the problem is that we (rugby league) share part of our name with Union. Now where I come from the vast majority of people have no interest in"Rugby" and the dislike or indifference in my experience is based on either playing a bit of Rugby Union on a dreary PE class in December or accidentally watching 10 minutes of the six nations whilst searching for the football scores on Ceefax.

Maybe to garner wider appeal the spirt could be called Northern Rules Football or name it after the town where League was born (Huddersfield?)

Thereby making it seem an even more minority sport than it already is.

The thread is going great, no evidence "Superleague" is a poor brand, and certainly no better suggestions.

Is NRF an M62 version of Aussie Rules Football?

I really don't think you're in  a position to judge, particularly considering the other thread where you posted "statistics" about where players were born. What do you know about evidence?

Agreed. The cringeworthy efforts on Soccer AM when Ryan Hall was on highlighted this,

"Are you looking forward to the Super League World Cup at the end of the year Ryan?"

"Well done for being in the World Super League team of the year!"

Rugby League is now Super League in the eyes of many people, not sure if thats a good thing or not. At least they are aware of Super League and know what it is, but it doesnt sit right when its confused as above.

As it happens he's on Question Of Sport tonight

What ackton an days is very persuasive and well thought out as ever

But I'm not convinced: the real issue for me is that the comp doesn't have a commercial partner to hang its name onto the title

On previous threads I have mentioned and see mentioned whether top flight RL in the northern hemisphere shouldn't just rebrand itself as the NRL Europe.

 

I can understand the issues and objections involved with doing this, but I do think it could be a good idea to rebadge RL in Europe using the twin chevron chest logo that they are using down under.

 

I recall reading that all RL competitions in Australia will use the chevron badge with the initials of the comp above it, maybe we could incorporate it here ( I won't attempt to do any designs). It may seem an insignificant thing to do, but it would I feel show that we are all part of the same rugby family.

White with red and blue? Might look pretty damn good that.
