The sport is dying  because more than half of Superleague are more concerned with surviving in the league than striving to better themselves.

Maybe some of the other teams should catch up?

Not often you complain.

Bayern Munich stroll to win each BL, Juve have won the past nine Serie A titles, traditionally La Liga has been a two horse race between Barca and RM. I like to see different winners but it isn't very often in soccer yet the fans turn up in droves. There are other problems that affect popularity but with this one Gubrats, you're barking up the wrong tree.

It takes wisdom to know when a discussion has run its course.

It takes reasonableness to end that discussion.

There's been a lot of talk about the smaller clubs that don't really bring anything to the table except nostalgia.

I want to hear from Leeds, Saints and Wigan fans. What do you think of competing against the same 2 teams year in, year out?

Comparative statistics:

Both the SL and NRL Grand Finals were first played in 1998. Since 1998, only one of the 16 NRL teams has never appeared in an NRL GF; Gold Coast Titans (94%).

Since 1998, of the 11 current Super League teams only 7 of them have played in a SL GF (64%). If you account for the clubs that have previously played in SL but have subsequently been relegated (Bradford, London, Halifax, Sheffield, Crusaders, Leigh and Gateshead) that becomes 8 teams out of a possible 18 (44%). (Toronto, PSG, Workington and Oldham) did not get chance to contest a SL GF for obvious reasons)

Isn't it fascinating how easily we fall into two armed camps over issues?

On the one hand the OP is an old argument but so is the idea other teams need to catch up is probably even older.

At the end of the day, I just want to see my team in the final and, ideally, for the final to be a good game. 

I'm not going to shed a tear for clubs that can't sort themselves out and compete.

Don't care, the others aren't good enough, they should strive to join the club at the top not bring us down to their level. 

That said Warrington should have won one by now as really should Hull FC and maybe Catalans (who have all won cups).
