Exactly. People are talking as if having such a low salary cap has actually helped clubs to stay afloat when actually the size of the salary cap does not appear to have any impact at all upon the ability of a club to stay afloat. Whether or not clubs stay in business appears to depend on the management of those clubs. As we have heard more back story to Wakefield, Bradford and Salford, all appear to have had terrible management structures and practices and it was these things which caused the clubs to go under, regardless of the salary cap. And now comments have been made about Castleford and the attitude towards management matters there suggesting that their difficulties again have foundations in the way the club is run rather than the salary cap limit.
Yeah, cos clubs don't go bust with a salary cap do they?
Personally I don't think there should be a free for all but I think the time is overdue for a rise in the cap. Taking the socialist approach is not working, in fact it could be said that it is holding the better managed clubs back.
A very good example of a club run on a shoestring budget that is doing incredibly well is Sheffield. There is a business model that perhaps some Superleague clubs could follow.
