  1. This is where you will fail, you do not generate money by saving money, you cheapen your product which is what we have done You will also fail to expand without engaging all current RL fans behind an inclusive structure and strategy, you can then expand from strong roots I would bow to 10 wigans or Leeds drawing 15000+ a game and spending £8m on their business, but we are nowhere near that so instead we must deal with and sell what we currently are
  2. Yet Manu Chelsea etc accept it is the only way to prosper They don't start a season thinking they may be relegated, and that applies to your £6m spenders in SL Until we can get the 10/12 elite clubs the ones facing the challenge are Widnes Cas Fev fax leigh Wakefield Salford London Hudds after davey and the Bradford of today
  3. Most people in business do not believe in a communist state Rewarding failure is not the solution to the games cash shortage, generating extra income is. Forcing a business to fight for survival and success is why any progressive company exists This forum has too many folk who have lived off the state for too long, leave the sports future to we expantionists who believe in capitalism as the solution to our income failures
  4. I see leigh have now announced the mystery Kuwaiti backer, 17th richest man in the world
  5. You would be far better advised to use the SL licence model of walking away from it and starting again
  6. You would be far better advised to use the SL licence model of walking away from it and starting again
  7. To be fair it is patently obvious Widnes fall into the Cas wakey Fev fax HKR Salford Leigh sheff category in that they will never be elite so should move down and let the elite get on with it, they have contributed nothing since rejoining SL under the licence protection and have gone back to uk and overseas past it's to make up the numbers
  8. Did you borrow the tenner and if so can you afford to pay it back, do your assets outweigh those debts?
  9. Parky why did the corporate world not wish to be Associated with this elite and why does RU retain promotion and relegation,as do all real uk sports We have never had an elite so let's focus on what we are before fantasising about what isn't reality RL needs the support of all its parts if we are to reach our potential

  11. A bit of advice for some if you, if you are competing in a commercial world you find and sell to your strengths/usp's you don't sell to your competitors RL has many usp's but we seem unable/ashamed to sell to them and until we do we will never be the best we can be A united RFL has a bigger market than RU in Ireland Wales or Scotland
  12. Leigh will run at full cap on 5500 parky not survive but each clubs costs and income will be different. No point having £2m of non playing income but £2.2m of associated costs
  13. Expansion in the playing numbers and a true elite will not be achieved by protectionism of the heartlands We need Toulouse in ASAP, we need a strong London and we need two FT tens to create a platform to meet our goals I would love the day the elite contained 4 French clubs 2 welsh and 6 English with a full time second tier pushing to move up, we must not let the protectionist flat clappers hold us back
  14. Looking at the Salfords, HKR , London's, Widnes, Cas wakeys and Bradford's I would fancy my chances with a FT squad with them in a mid eight Even more so with 4 of them in SL2! Do you think a promoted championship club in soccer benchmarks itself agains Manu man c or chelsea etc?? Some folk on here really worry me
  15. You lose 5 clubs plus cats source there own tv deal with Toulouse, that creates £7.8m, extra 200k to 8 uk SL1 clubs and 700k per club in sl2 - no extra funding required
  16. Two full time tens is how we should go, but if its not on the table we desperately need change so 12x2/8x3 it is Toulouse should be in SL1 in a 2x10 structure, on the proviso they bring a TV deal with Cats, the central funding is then removed from these enabling the finance for a second full time tier with P&R. Toulouse exempt for 3 years
  17. Is a club that goes belly up and walks away from its debts classed as stronger or weaker?
  18. That would be great, and it must be played under championship rules ie the SL club must only select a team whose combined salaries are within championship limits and only 1 import
  19. That's a good idea, they could play each other once with home advantage to the championship or SL2 clubs.
  20. What we have to remember is that the level of cash needed to be competitive and create the opportunity to move upwards is relatively low in comparison to other sports. 3/4 locals funding £600k pa for 2/3 years is peanuts compared to Soccer/RU, add that to a £600k central funding and they are on a par with the SL funding. Game on
