The NRL put up three billboards in Atlanta, the site of the NFL Super Bowl this weekend, describing the Sydney Roosters as World Champions of Football.

What possible benefit to rugby league could this action have been intended to achieve? There is no professional rugby league team in Atlanta -- only an amateur team that 99.9% of Atlanta residents, let alone Americans, would not have heard of.

The only result of these billboards being put up (at some expense to the NRL) is the derision contained in this video:

Toulouse for Championship in 2017, Super League in 2021!

Avignon for Championship in 2021, Super League in 2022!

So you're not an advocate of the Atlanta Rednecks inclusion into Super League XXVIII.

It has not embarrassed RL in the USA, it’s just shown up Americans for the insular weirdos they are when they call the winners of their national leagues “World Champions”.
