And the word on the wires now is that the SL clubs are about to scupper any new structure and initiate a Vote of No Confidence in the RFL Seems like some of them are suddenly scared by the prospect of relegation.

Great build-up to the World Cup, hm?

You've got to be kidding? What a pathetic state of affairs. Looks like increasing your playing budget by 50% is going to prove a pretty futile waste of cash.

It's ruining the game though no promotion, that's the reason the rl can't get a sponsor for superleague and the rfl are sick of bailing clubs at the top out while it ruins clubs at our level. Who wants to support and financially back a club who gets no reward of promotion on merit? It's ardly making sponsors turn up on mass or helping gain new supporters to the sport which as tbh become boring at the top in superleague! Our new sponsor I believe is holding out his good sponsorship deal to us until after the rugby league give the go ahead to the restructure of the game which will more fairly distribute its sky money across superleague 1 and 2 on league position merit, while creating promotion and relegation between the 2! ..... A lot more exciting than a boring dying comp that superleague currently is where if your at the bottom it matters little, you can be there 3 years and still not get relegated but get 2 mill a year off sky why a club with ambition like fev can spend large sums of their own money with no help from the rfl trying to give their fans the dream of superleague

"Further consultation" can be interpreted to mean whatever you want it to.

 

We have the RLWC on the horizon and a set of SL chairmen are much more interested in promoting their own personal agendas than the game as a whole!

And turkeys don't vote for Christmas. Did you ever really think the RFL would have the collective bottle to make changes that would aversely affect those with vested interests. Won't happen ! :rtfm:

In the days before SL every team be it Swinton or St Helen's had a single vote. Is this no longer the case?

Just when it looked like things were looking up and the championship teams were getting a look in again, it has been kayboshed.

What a joke

Yes this is no longer the case. Non-SL clubs "volunteered" to change this when the SL was formed, we switched to summer RL and took the Murdoch money.

 

 

Actually, from a Championship perspective, i don't think things were actually looking up again.

What do you think the best outcome would be for teams below the SL then?

Creating bigger fan bases and higher attendances; getting greater media coverage; playing in winter (d'ohh!).

 

In terms of league structures I don't actually think this is the fundamental problem facing the lesser clubs, and certainly any change or even remaining the same won't solve anything.

Strange that despite all the extra money in SL, many clubs are still in financial crisis.

It shows that it is financial management that counts not the amount of money.

If it's Joe Bond, that would be a pretty exciting signing - very quick.

 

 

But not in the PNG squad!

Plan B it is then.

That's fine - if he had been he would have been either going to Sheffield or a better heeled club - this way there is still hope. ;)
