It would have been great to be a fly on the wall in the proposals meeting, to get a true feeling for the mood of clubs in Cat C and the lower Cat B echelons.

There seems to be a lot of disparity in the media regarding it, spanning from almost the second coming kind of euphoria, to the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse riding in to view, kind of doom.

I still firmly believe most the issues in the game could be resolved by simply closing the gap in funding between the divisions and transparency within the game. 

If we get that, the structure becomes almost irrelevant, because every club would truly have a fair opportunity to progress. Whether we will ever get that, has yet to be touched upon.

I disagree fundamentally. Addressing the internal, essentially structural issues of the sport will not increase its popularity nor make it a more valuable product for sponsors and broadcasters. Without this the game will whither and die, leaving a few hundred hardy souls arguing about who gets what share of a tiny pie.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.
