I'm genuinely confused as to how you've drawn that conclusion from my posts. That isn't what I wrote at all. I can only assume that you haven't read them properly, or have projected viewpoints on to it that I have never stated. I can appreciate it is difficult to discuss this topic when you're so emotionally invested in it, but I am genuinely interested to hear your views on the questions posed, as you haven't addressed them in your other posts. The funding from TV broadcasts isn't a charity giveaway, so it's perfectly reasonable to question the return on that investment across all levels of the game. Questioning the value of any investment isn't the same as believing that "shrinking the footprint of RL in this country is the way to go." It's merely asking whether the investment is being channeled appropriately to maximise development. For me, I would rather have seen multiple Cramlington Rockets type clubs formed and supported in areas such as Oxford, Hemel and Gloucester, than have spent that money on 3 pro clubs that now cease to exist with little to show for it. Given that it appears the funding for League 1 is likely to be substantially reduced moving forward, it would seem a good time to look at the return on investments at all levels of the game.
