Not referring to Oldham here and never referenced them. We are out of the equation and may well not exist in a year or two. However, if you really want to talk about the past? How many titles? Challenge Cup wins? The actual point was that we've tried to spread the game previously.....great, I'm on board with that. However, in certain locations it just hasn't worked. Therefore, perhaps if 'forcing' a more geographical diverse competition (not earned on the the pitch) we should look to new places. Please feel free to discuss.

It was your comment in the first place. Perhaps you could list the clubs/locations currently operating that you think have "been an abject failure in the past"?

Oldham are in many ways a perfect example with the problem our game has. A club who really should be chugging along nicely at champ level pulling in 1500 and a nice holding pen and pathway for players is, because of a lack of infrastructure in terms of even a modest 3k stadium (like Rochdale), basically on life support.

Whilst certainly symptomatic, the Oldham situation has it's own unique problem lets just say!!!

It would be quicker to name the successful one from France!!!!

It´s franchising so basically the end of anything outside top flight. All those people who spent money, Keighley , have been led up the garden path. 

It has to be 14 now to get it through because the clubs outside SL are basically done in terms of anyone putting money in. 

Wigan, St

Leeds, Wire

Toulouse, Catalan,

Hull, KR

Wakey, London

Rest take your pick.

It is, but the objective isn't to make money at any costs. It has constraints. 

Otherwise, we could see RL and RU reunify for example.

Why would we take on a loss making operation like rugby union?

Think Super League as a brand will go. They're talking of re-branding and avoiding using the "Super League" name instead saying "top division".

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.

So I can see why Newcastle and London just cut the funding for the budget because they know next season is irrelevent. What the hell are clubs playing for next year then? If I am not Toulouse I think I am just gutting the budget because quite frankly who cares?

Shame, Championship under a 14 team SL could´ve been a really great comp. Now it´s meaningless again. 

Also, are they going to want clubs to vote for this before they tell them it´s A,B or C? I bet some clubs already know they will never be given a license now (Fev,Fax,Widnes after last time, Leigh, Keighley) so why the hell would they vote for this?

But on-field activity also counts...

This is literally the EuroLeague basketball set-up.

I think this is pragmatically wise for a number of reasons, not least that it's been around a while and now being usurped by women's football.

The biggest Super League crowd at the LSV next year will be when Manchester United play Chelsea.
