I think you are being unfair to RU fans here. You may not see it but RU fans enjoy RU. Whereas you may think that it lacks quality, RU fans don't. RU fans aren't ignorant, naive or easily fooled as it appears you make out. They perhaps are just a bit more optimistic about their sport than RL fans.
Unintentionally possibly; I think as a 'breed' you are more glass half full than glass half empty, more likely to enjoy the occasion without debating the minutiae of the game quality, less likely to immediately decry the crowd announcement as spin, less likely to call for coach/chairman/board/everyone to be sacked if a game plan goes wrong.
In terms of the qualities of the respective sports, that is a separate issue but I do make a policy of trying to avoid negativity in my approach to union as I believe slagging off the favourite sport/team of a potential convert is likely to turn people off.
Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.
All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.
Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.
