IMG - Vote on Wednesday


Recommended Posts

There's a very real possibility that was done so IMG could turn around to the RFL and say, "see everyone hates it". 

I think it was more so they could say: "Look at the free text box comments. I didn't even know you could get your head up there, Ralph."

It was all the evidence they needed to get him to leave of his own accord.

When even is this meeting and vote by the way?

Nobody knows.

I wonder if this vote will be held door to door, with an armed policeman writing down the results?

The Community Game have 7 votes in any vote at Full Council. None of them are privy to IMG proposals. I doubt that re-organisation will be done and dusted tomorrow .

RL politics is always intriguing........

A ladder of 16 clubs in SL anyone? Given SL needs 4 votes from the Championship to get it over the line ( unless there is a total breakaway) top 4 in the Championship promoted together  in 2024 followed by NRL style expansion thereafter would get enough support.......especially with new IMG media deals due by then.............

Fair comment, but I was just interested to see if anyone had any indication that this extraordinary meeting and "vote" was being treated any differently.

I would be appalled if we changed the rules for a one-off purpose.  It would set a terrible precedent.

Very intriguing but I’d be surprised. Probably too many games when you take into account playoffs and the Challenge Cup as well. 

21 team Championship…

Rimmer is gone! Certainly feels like he's been removed.

No. It's Ralph Rimmer's world and we're all living in it!

I was born to run a club like this. Number 1, I do not spook easily, and those who think I do, are wasting their time, with their surprise attacks.

That's because 16 of the 18 counties (I think that's the right number) are member owned. That isn't true when it comes to rugby league.

It is 15 but your point is spot on

I would have no problem with us having a lock on clubs in SL and Championship and those outside having to apply to join by meeting criteria. We should really want the champ to be a nursury and holding pen for clubs lean and mean enough to get to SL. That means equal central funding so clubs have to generate the rev, clubs that do so get more competitive and then arent outspent by dopers or the matthews effect. 

Barrow getting 2500 in Champ would be a great example now of a club who could be a genuine challenge for SL if they weren´t doped by other clubs. I just want the FT clubs out of the Champ tbh so we can have two quality competitive leagues. 

Sadly, clubs like Oldham, Rochdale, West Wales, Skolars, Hunslet dont own their own grounds or have any ability to generate revenue, even Swinton you could chuck in. Depending what happens with Midlands move they´d be another one. 

But how many of those 2500 are paying spectators? 

Apparently, Barrow have said they gave 1500 tickets away for the playoff game with us. I've no problem with that, but they should have disclosed it to the club prior to the game, sadly they didn't though. It will be interesting to see how the RFL deal with that, and whose share of the shared gate that loss in revenue is taken from.

You get shared gate revenue in the Championship?

Play off games are shared gates, aren't they?

No idea? Is that the same for Super League?

I believe so.

It's one of the issues about putting play offs on season tickets.

'Apparently' is doing a lot of heavy lifting lifting here. Where did you get this from?

No doubt that will come up at today's IMG vote.

Of course it is.  The away team has to pay wages, don't they ?

I hope BBC Sport are sending a camera down, it's only round the corner. There'll be some classic stormings out I reckon

I have not heard it officially confirmed but I believe that Morgan Knowles has been called in to the meeting to stand behind the Chairmen likely to vote 'no' and do the necessary.
