  1. It says the average wage for super league players is £20k rising to £40k. The average wage for premiership players is £40k to £60k. But a professional is someone who gets paid to work full time. So this number could include apprenticeship and some youth and reserve team players. Even so £80k for 10 years then low than average wage for 35 years or get a degree and develop your career and earn above average for 40 years. The pressure from schools and friends is going to be go to university. Both north America and the uk would do well to target universities more, even if it just means another pathway for players.
  2. It's the figure thr uk gov put out on their apprenticeship data, not sure how true it is but if you include all the apprenticeship and new professionals the bottom end will be much larger than the super stars on 100k
  3. Or could it be that they can earn more not going professional? The average wage for a super league players is only £20k - £40k per year.
  4. Because it's not true. Hemel withdrew from league 1 in October 2018, Perez involvement didn't begin until march 2019
  5. Could Ottawa get away with having 50% canadians in the squad maybe having 5 or 6 starting? Could they realistically use rugby 7s players in league 1? If NY join could they run a small reserve league in NA?
  6. Ah so 'home' represents the players location and not the teams 'Home' location. So a player may be at home whilst the team is away and vice versa even whilst playing for the team. I've never honestly looked at it like that but I can see how that might affect the player.
  7. One of the problems clubs have found when going professional is that players refused contracts due to needing to take a pay cut from their current employment salary. Unfortunately the current salaries paid to players doesn't help resolve the player issue no matter how many full time positions are available. We now live in a world where Instagram lifestyles seem to be the aim of kids, where showing wealth is more important than anything.
  8. Interesting interpretation of 'home' most people take home to be in their official stadium in front of their local fans. Since Aston villa have players living in the north west, are you saying that when Aston villa play liverpool they are really at home? Also when warrington play at home their players stay the night before in the village hotel are they playing away when they play at the halliwell jones? Just curious at where you draw the line.
  9. They are the government figures used on their career service and apprenticeship info. Could be completely wrong but I'm not going to spend half a day working out the true figures, if you have them I happy to be corrected.
  10. The salary cap covers all divisions not just the SL. It also talks about exclusions to the regulations, stating that these players also count if you don't have 25 players. Since you clearly agree with the salary cap and I don't see the positives in it can you explain why it is a good thing?
  11. There can be a multiple of reason why you could have a squad less than 25, we had teams last year with less than 25 registered players. The regulations include if you don't have a squad of 25 so it must have been considered a risk when the regulations were written. I personally wouldn't included any players under 21.
  12. It's simple really. You have a maximum of £2m to spend on players, if you remove the marquee players you can spend around £70k per player. This figure is already low for most professional sports people but then you'll also have senior players on much more and since the average player earns between £20k and £40k which is exceptional low, it seems most clubs are already doing what I said.
