Perhaps not on Friday though.

Of course, we can all visualise the situation where some decision is arrived at on Friday but then, for "fairness and not wishing to ruin the season endings in the different leagues" they then decide not to announce anything until all the play-offs are completed.

..And then, it all dribbles out on twitter or 'leaks ' from clubs, over the following week or so. Oh, and of course, at least half a dozen on here will know the full decision but be uabable to pass on the details as their mate could be compromised....

Personally would prefer changing the middle 8s to something else but the funding proposals are just daft. Basically a less or nothing option for clubs outside SL. For a stronger game obviously...

Wow.

This is how I read it:


Listen here you annoying little runts,

Despite the excitement that the middle 8's bring, we think it's rocking the boat so we want rid. We will give a token one-up-one-down as a conciliatory measure before skinning the lower leagues and the RFL of the money paid to the sport by Sky when the next deal is done. Because we're at the top table so we should have all the money.

We know you play Rugby, and we DO really care about you, but really; who cares about rugby outside SL anyway?

When we have complete control of the money SL will be the most thrilling game in the world, there will be so many scraps falling from our table that ALL lower league clubs will be popular and successful, and fans will be ecstatic with a series of loop fixtures in Super League. Who wouldn't want Hull FC vs Hull KR games 6 times a season?

If you don't agree with us, f*@k you we'll take our ball home and let you all starve.

Never trust a man who, when left alone in a room with a tea cosy, doesn't try it on.

Listened to the 5Live podcast last night with Hetherington, Sadler and the guy from League Weekly. They seemed to suggest that the position regarding SL was more or less settled on 12 teams and loop around fixtures. Hetherington was very critical of that part. They also thought that the problem with the SL clubs was that they found the RFL easy targets for the fact that some of the SL clubs were not pushing their own clubs and increasing their own business. They also said that they had no idea what was happening below SL divisions.

If you think Hudgell and Pearson come across badly, read what Lenagan has to say...

THink he needs to look closer to home for falling crowds. Five drives and a kick and playing the same teams countless times in a season won't bring the crowds back.

What a pipe-end....

I think it's time the CH/L1 chairmen took a another look and tried to come up with new ways to broadcast the game and run it. It would take years but if you have a league with

Bradford
York
Newcastle
Coventry
London B
London S
Toulouse
Toronto
West Wales (Yes I know.. but I am thinking in terms of ANYTHING could be possible)
North Wales
Hemel
Happyflaps
Swinton
Batley
Dewsbury
Doncaster
Sheffield
Widnes et all

You have a much wider scope to attract interest AND you can claim 'Big City RL' which super league can't anymore. Just Leeds in a pile of small towns and small cities.

Leave the SL mob laiking wi themselves as per...

Press conference happening today by a few of the champ/L1 reps. Should be interesting to hear what they have to say. I wonder if Chalmers will be there?
