Hi guys.....

I'm just wondering..... what is the general feeling about this new league structure, with no one in our league able to get promoted?

I'm writing in my uni newspaper about the annoyance of fighting for a league position that kinda has no meaning now.

Just wondering if anyone feels as strongly as I do that the sport has been taken over somewhat by this decision.

Its pants

An ill thought out excuse for the RFL to fill super league with the teams they want in there, and they can stick it!

i'd have to agree with that. does anyone else feel as though it's an American Football style of franchising??

it's frustrating because what are the players in the lower leagues playing for anymore??

I dont agree with the franchise system whatsoever, but its there, we have to live with it.

As for fighting for league positions that have no meaning, what is the difference between our league and Superleague (in terms of league positions). The winner of Superleague can go nowhere, they are fighting for prestige and silverware. Surely its no different for us for the next three years.

Luck is a combination of preparation and opportunity

Just to avoid confusion Starbug is the username of Steven Pike




SOMEBODY SAID that it couldn’t be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it!

I suppose you have a point. But surely the aim of every sports team is to become the very best. now i know that in most sports the reality to become the best in the game is basically non-existent, but surely you, like i, would rather watch Super League rugby over the lower leagues.

Who decided to do this anyway?

Surely its a restraint of trade too? Stopping a club from reaching as high a level as possible. The whole thing stinks and reduces competition.

I just cant believe that the clubs voted for it?

what? did the lower league clubs vote for it as well????

i know what you mean about competition. It's hardly fair that a team who is doing crap in the Super League will not face any consequences, whilst better teams in lower leagues wont have the chance to move up the table!
