Here is Twitters take on todays developments.
There will be NO new Rugby League fans ever again because of the new structure (League freak said that, does that guy ever say anything positive about our game?)
Rugby League will be bankrupt within a few years.
The RFL are only in it for themselves. And sit around eating biscuits all day.
It's going to be a disaster.
The new structure is purely a distraction to stop people talking about clubs in financial difficulty.
It is total madness and the RFL "better have a bloody good reason"
Nobody gets the new structure (I doubt the majority have even read about it)
Rugby League is now dead
Richie Mathers thinks there should surely be change on a day when major change has been announced.
It's quite disheartening looking through twitter to be honest. The full details of the restructure have yet to be announced and already alot of fans have completely written the idea off. One person even tweeted he has lost interest in Super League purely because of this decision and will only watch the NRL in future (although I suspect he is being a bit of a drama queen). But what is it about Rugby League that makes fans turn against it so often? There is barely a bit of RL news these days that isn't met with a huge amount of negetivity by fans. Personally I think it's going to be very interesting, especially seeing the top championship clubs playing against Super League clubs to fight for a place in the next seasons SL. Within those games I think there will be just as much intensity as those fighting for a place at Old Trafford.
I do wonder how sponsorship will work across the leagues with them eventually coming together in a way. But I dont think there will be any trouble getting TV coverage. If anything, I think the new format will encourage multi-channel coverage.
