https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Super_League

The Super League name has been lost to soccer, if anyone thinks that we still exist as a sport please add your thoughts here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:The_Super_League because we seem to shrinking as a game year-by-year, month-by-month, week-by-week.

The European Super League is eating up alot of headlines, but if we lose The Super League, and that moves into the national conversation, we might as well settle in for increasingly small TV deals, smaller crowds, smaller wages for the players, until we flicker out of existence.

The RFL and the Super League may may not been the best managers of our game, but we have seen other sports take the name Womens Super League, European Super League and others, and each time we go further into the background, having to explain our sport to people, having to justify our existence.

Please do not let the Super League go, as our flagship competition is not a soccer one, it is a rugby league competition

Sell it to them, if the Premiership can spend 272 million pounds on agents fees last year, they can be more than generous.

If our game has registered the name? Then the league should stop them using the name & I expect we would get support from the FA, UEFA, etc & the politicians have got involved as well. I suppose the game can’t even contemplate the court costs involved.

Didnt we also own the trademark for "Rugby world cup" and we just gave it to rugby union free of charge?
