Maybe it is because that person ( if I'm picking up on your hints ) is taking his role as an elected position within that organisation professionally and recommending to the clubs what is best for the area and the clubs within that area.

The issues he may have with the progression of his club's players away from the club, he is able to keep seperate and view the game's progression as a whole within a national sporting landscape.

Then again I may be wrong and find myself being sucked into another broken record of a discussion

Maybe that is the way it's being looked at, but surely there is a problem and this should be highlighted and not bypassed, it doesn't take much for a volunteer to walk away if all their hard work keeps getting undermined or do they just join the nominated elite club shrinking the area of development.

 

I'd like to add I do respect the guy and hold is opinions very highly.

Interesting. Now we see the real issue isn't summer v winter, it's a "who governs the game" debate and the playing season is one of the battle lines. Perhaps the governance issue needs a separate thread. One that I'd be happy to contribute to after the Midlands RL clubs have had their say on the future.

It's not all about who governs the game but how they are proposing to govern the game, already we are seeing a massive reduction in participation at every level since the drive to destroy everything to do with a traditional season, on top of this we've also seen the (lets call it relaxing of bye-laws) allowed changes that has seen service areas directing elite players to the chosen few, this act alone has seen the none fashionable clubs being put to a further disadvantage and often seen teams folding and volunteers walking away from the game, this also has the knock on effect further up the food chain at open age level.

 

Why does the governing body (RFL) stand in the way of Traditionalist when they want to add a higher level to their pyramid system? Is this just an indication of what we can expect from the RFL (Please don't tell me it's all dealt with at Community Board level)

Surely the "who" and "how" are one and the same? Which is why I think there's a separate discussion to be had on the subject.

As I said, I'll comment later. Possibly. If I can be bothered.

Back on topic, I say keep it in one forum.

For Heaven's sake Marauder!  You just go on and on and on.  Read what the heading of this particular thread is - and then divert your ramblings onto another thread that's more appropriate to your comments!  At least people will know how they can avoid you.

Given that the poll has proved so inconclusive, to avoid any confusion we've decided we won't be changing the structure of the forum at all when the site relaunches on 11th Oct.

 

Thanks for all your feedback.
