It's no good saying this isn't working and that isn't working but you need to say why and what should be done instead. Anyone can moan about everything g the RFL do. This place is full of 'em.

Put a proper argument and credible alternatives forward and you'll get the interest of people who matter rather than a load of bleating sheep.

The RFL is in Yorkshire so a load of bleating sheep probably would get their attention :wink:

While I agree with that to an extent, the fact remains that the RFL should expect to be criticised and questioned over what it does and given its appalling track record it can't expect to hide from public scrutiny - an example would be the secret loan to Bradford Bulls by the RFL and the obvious questions of conflict of interest and the integrity of the competition which come out of that.

As well as getting them to perform better we need them to explain their behaviour. As far as I am aware they have issued no explanation of the loan - if they have I'd love to see it. They are now proposing to play Bradford's players' wages - I don't think they've done this for other clubs? Is this because they are biased towards Bradford (which is why they supported them financially in the past via the loan), or is it simply because they want to keep their tenant in business so they can keep paying the rent on Odsal? These are questions the RFL needs to address, with no obvious answers that will not invite further criticism of the RFL.

We also need them to admit to their mistakes (such as the licensing of a number of clubs which have gone bust soon after being given a clean bill of health by the RFL).

Yes the process needs to be constructive but the only way the RFL will learn from their errors is if they are open about them and tell us what they are going to do to stop it from happening again - the silence on the licensing process is deafening.

I was going to say something similar. Who, or what would replace the RFL, and even so, how do you gain effective control of a sport that is owned by them?

The RFL aren't proposing to pay the Bulls wages. They are advancing the next instalment of the Sky money a week or two earlier to the Administrator.
