  1. But that is what happpens, right? Things change over time. Situations dont stay the same. It is 2 years later.
  2. If only my kids cared then they would have options. my American wife's mum was born in the Philippines, I am English and the kids were born in South Africa.
  3. I have always liked the idea of a soft cap with a luxury tax - similar to used in some US sports - rather than a hard cap. It allows far greater transparency and allows teams with money to spend it. For Super League you could tax at 50p or a full pound for every pound over the cap. That then all goes into a pot to be divided between the clubs that do not go over. So if the salary cap is 2 mil and Leeds, for example, spend 3 mil then (at 50p tax) they would actually have to outlay 3.5 mil with 500,000 shared by the teams below the cap.
  4. If the concern is up the jumper rugby then how about 3+ passes before a tackle doesnt count agains the tackle count. Get the ball thrown around
  5. Yep. Loses nothing and gains identity and clarity by just being Britain
  6. Yeah, it is unbelievable. Both the article and the RFL's response are awful. If we apply basic BLUF then the take away from the RFL response is that they are sad! Is that really the main point? Poorly written and equally poorly structured. Trying to be positive though, at least the RFL are consistently bad.
  7. Yes and no. He is absolutely not to blame for what happened but he did some strange things. For the first sin bin he refused to look at or acknowledge one touch judge when in conversation and completely ignored them when they pointed a finger at Mamo. It was bizarre behavior and not one a quality ref should follow. I remember thinking how petty and it looked and then the rest subsequently happened.
  8. Yeah, it would be a pretty good idea.
  9. We have only 2 -- Wigan and Leeds. The entire Super League brand should be based on promoting these two pillars across the Pennines. Making them fully national brands (let alone global brands) would drag every other team upwards and forwards. Having many priorities means you have none. Pick your prettiest and promote them - petty personal team preferences shouldnt come into this. As much as I hated them, Wigan's decade of dominance made League's profile far higher than it is now and it is easier to develop household names for 2 or so teams than for half the league. Clubs like Saints, Wire, FC etc are incredibly important to the game but not the vehicles to hitch our wagons to in order to build national profile for the sport.
