They have defaulted on a £1.5m bill to the council so are being shafted off to Moor Lane's tiny stadium not in the best area for growing a club. Effectively, the council saved them from administration and now are calling the shots - hence being punted to Moor Lane. SL should be stepping in and saying you will be relegated regardless in 2022 if this is your only available solution.

The SL either has minimum standards or is a Sunday pub league.

Which is exactly what should have happened in 2018 when London beat Toronto in the MPG , they should have denied them promotion and either put Toronto into SL or not relegated Widnes 

But they let them in 

If you refuse Moor Lane you refuse Belle Vue and Wheldon Rd as well

I believe they also told a couple of Championship clubs in this year's play offs that they couldn't be promoted (Whitehaven was one).

What is the difference between the Rec Ground and Moor Lane?

What’s the difference between post office road and Moor Lane?  What I’ve seen Moor lane is tidy think there’s corporate in the main stand, 5k ish capacity will do for Salford.

In the unlikely event that Whitehaven were promoted they were looking to play at Brunton Park in Carlisle.

The floodlighting and lack of seating were the problem but they’d have been granted dispensation if they could prove they had funding in place to rectify those 2 shortcomings,surprisingly an artist’s impression wouldn’t count.

Having visited POR on Saturday I’d say it’s far better than MoorLane and is a country mile better than Wheldon Road & Belle View.

It is an embarrassment that a club playing in Soccer’s 4th division considers a stadium too small and inadequate, whereas a Super League club thinks it’s suitable for them. Too many small clubs survive on the £1.6m Sky money which is all generated by the big clubs. The sooner Super League outgrows the small time ambition-less clubs the better. Toulouse have done it, hopefully Newcastle, York and Bradford can follow them. Those clubs all have ambition and potential.

Bradford? Seriously? Have you ever been to Odsal?

Genuine question: have you been to the Peninsula Stadium since the last refurbishments were completed?

 

I'm absolutely fine having a discussion about crowds, what we bring to SL etc but at least make sure you have something beyond preconceptions and a vested interest.

Well for a starter less clubs.

Full time.

The Championship used to have less clubs and Championship clubs can choose to be full time now, most can’t afford it, like London who recently switched from Full Time to Part Time. Where will the additional funding come from for Championship clubs to become Full Time?

It is in the Operational Rules.Section A2.On a pdf.

The Salford commercial guy ain't despondent. Looking well ahead

I guess these from 2019?

Can't see anything there on capacity. Which section of A2?

https://secure.rugby-league.com/ign_docs/FACILITYSTANDARDS2016 final PDF.pdf

Found this from 2016?

I would suggest that BV meets those minimum standards. 5000 capacity with 2000 seats and a safety certificate. 

But even these include rfl discretion

Those were adjusted to 5000 because of London playing at Barnet after nearly going bust IIRC. Licensing was 10k capacity.

I dont have a vested interest I don't even support a club. I can just see how the game is dumbing down to the point that a toy town stadium is now suitable for SL. It is not Salford's fault.

I dont have to go I can see all the photos and videos I need of Moor Lane. It us a shoe box stadium with a identikit stands. I've also been to Dewsbury which is also nice and tiny. Unfortunately that is the point. No one will be promoting Dewsbury any time soon.

I thought it was more that Nigel Wood, as is usual for an accountant, saw a way to reduce RFL spending by removing/reducing the requirements. Fewer standards = fewer audits = fewer salaried employees needed. Similar to his refrain "we don't run the clubs, it's up to them" whenever a club got into trouble.

Well you probably have to live in the country first of all Ray. I've watched match highlights, seen photos of the stands being built. You can dress it up all you want but it is smaller than Batley and the same size as Dewsbury. Salford were grand finalists a couple of years ago. If they move there they no longer want to be an elite club IMO as nice as the tiny stands may be.

Do you genuinely believe 4,000 at the AJ Bell provides a better matchday experience and TV product than 4,000 at Moor Lane?

 

It rather misses the point of the issues tbh. The issue is the 4,000 part.
