Does it bother anyone else that so many people (including "professional" news sites) get RFL wrong?!

The amount of times I see RLF used (and more than one within writing, so not a typo) is really irritating! What do these people think it stands for? Rugby League Federation?!

It's the RFL: the Rugby Football League!

Hope that clears it up for the unsure! Now stop it!

Yeah annoying but i suppose it comes from the sport being referred to as Rugby League Football.

To be fair many in the Aussie game dont appear to know what the R stands for in NRL, often referring to a rival sport as Rugby and Rugby as League.

When you watch many Aussie tv programmes about RL it's surprising how often they call the game rugby league rather than league or footy. I've just watched the reruns of NRL Rookie and they called it rugby league almost all of the time.

I was really disappointed with a commentary in the RLWC where a player was taking a shot at goal I think, and the commentator said something like " come on, this isn't Rugby, this is League"!

Because either you think Anne Robinson was called Robert or there was a guy called Robert Robinson who used to present shows, including PoV, in black and white.
