There’s a lot of positive stuff happening in rugby league but us fans can always find a negative behind everything. Basically I’ll start with something positive, the next person has to turn that into something negative and post something positive for someone else to spin into a negative and so on.

Leeds Rhinos are on course to win League Leaders, Challenge Cup and Super League trophies this season which would be a fantastic achievement.

Negative #1: It's only positive for Leeds fans
Negative #2: They haven't won any of them yet (which is only negative for Leeds fans haha)

The new Super 8s system has made RL even less competitive than before.

Extra points for anyone blaming the RFL, doubled if they insert the terms "farce" or "laughing stock".
"The problem when you play Leeds is that they are a huge 'confidence' side. If you get on top of them, they will cower and go away, but when they get in front their chests puff out and they start whooping as they make tackles. " (Jon Wilkin)

"The new Super 8s system has made RL even less competitive than before" Trying to work out how that is a positive or negative so will ignore it. As the double negative.
So to the original challenge:

Negative : it's only what Huddersfield did before the war: the RFL isn't progressing.

Postive: we're the only game who has stayed faithful to our geographical roots.
Sad preacher nailed upon the coloured door of time;
Insane teacher be there reminded of the rhyme.
There'll be no mutant enemy we shall certify;
Political ends, as sad remains, will die.

Negative: The RL World cup will never be as big as the Rugby Union or Football World Cups nor will our profile ever match either!

Positive: The Super 8s is capturing the imagination of RL Fans!

NEG: The 8's are a farce which not only stacks the deck in favour of SL teams but offers a very slim chance of promotion.

POS: The CH has been extremely entertaining this year and possibly the most exciting its ever been

I like this game
