  1. How is that any different to the UK pretending it's three different countries?
  2. The beer festivals with free tickets were popular not rugby league.
  3. Would the game be more exciting if forward passes were allowed? To prevent completely changing the game they would have to have the same offside rules as kicks. Perhaps they'd also require the forward pass to be touched by another player before touching the pitch to prevent players from throwing the ball forward aimlessly.
  4. Treize is the answer. Most people wouldn't know it's a real word meaning thirteen on French.
  5. The fake scrums are the most embarrassing feature of any sport I have ever seen.
  6. I'd change the name to something related to RL's birth place... so Hudders / Hudds / Huddy... something like that.
  7. The ARLC is the governing body for RL in Australia. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_Rugby_League_Commission The NRL's TV deal only includes NRL properties. Other properties, such as tests, are owned by the ARLC and they have their own TV deals.
  8. The NRL salary cap is $9.6 million, which means 130% is about $13 million. $13 million x 16 clubs = $208 million / year. But the NRL's TV deal is $360 million / year. What other sports league in the world has 42% of their TV deal going somewhere other than the clubs that are playing in the league? None.
  9. You are just making things up now. There has been no disproval of that statement.
  10. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/business-42702631 "Chief executive and club founder Eric Perez secured the use of 10,000-seater Lamport Stadium in Toronto, and last year average home gates were a healthy 7,000 (though half of those attending had complimentary tickets)." If they're admitting 50% of the tickets are free it probably means 75% of them are free
  11. 7s is losing money big time, why would 9s be the cash cow you're imagining it would be?
  12. I don't see any difference between rugby league and rugby football. You either make a big change or keep it the same because making a small change won't make any difference.
  13. Calling the sport just "league" or "league rules football" is pretty daft. The name should be changed to something related to its birth place so... Huddersfield Football Hudders Hudds Huddy. The last one sounds like a sport name to me. If I had never heard of rugby, hockey, huddy, cricket and bandy and you asked me which ones of these I think are real names of a sport and which aren't I couldn't tell the difference.
