It's alleged that 40-20 Mag is suggesting a Superleague re-structure.

It has suggested this before that it's coming for the new SKY contract, which many people poo-pooed.

Is Phil Caplan the 40-20 man? Anyway it has to be very likely given there has already been a vote on a new structure that was not kind to the Championships, so it was defeated at the time.

And ditch the now tainted and massively over-used "Super League" name (Soccer, Athletics, Netball, Basketball, RL, Cricket and others use it!).

Sell the Super League name to the European Super League (the association football one). They don't want to have us linked to them, and they way the RFL and the Super League have protected the game, we are going to have to re-brand at such a low-ebb. We are a piss-poor sport because of the short sightedness of administrators, poor vision from our leaders and a willingness from fans to accept that our flagship elite competition is so devalued that we can't even get a second party to the table on the TV bidding rights. We wasted £500k on a finders fee for corporate money, but they the board members overvalued the Super League and got a £500k cost for taking a meeting. The Super League is radio-active right now, and the sport is not even a joke, because only a few hundred thousand people would get the joke. We are a niche that will disappear if serious action isn't taken, and by the startling silence from the Super League and the RFL, they seem happy to let everyone poop all over their good name.

Collective action from Sky customers threatening to walk away from their TV contracts that would conservatively leave a £50m hole in the Sky annual balance sheet. If we protected our own copyright, trademark, image rights, etc we wouldn't have other sports horning in on our 25 years of good work. I do not see how this ends well for us, unless the planned European Super League gives us money to stop calling our league the Super League, European Super League, Super League, Super League Europe, Super League (Europe), Super League (Europe) Ltd, etc and all the names that we have used to describe elite rugby league in Europe over the last quarter of a century.

I think the problem is that looking at the current structure and we just don't have the structure for 1 up 1 down.

Looking at the Championship we seem to have a lack of quality (what the aussies would call park teams) to come up and you would suspect the bottom three would not improve if relegated.

That being said I am not sure a licence or Super 8s league structure would do any better. Changing how teams come in out out of the league just feels like rearranging the deck chairs, we need something more than this to make Superleague and professional RL in general work.

I'd guess the words "Super" and "League" are not copyright, even linked as one word.............

Besides the registered name is "Superleague (Europe) Ltd."

Now nobody can pinch that not even the planned Elite Soccer league****
