Without doubt Brian you are right about the sport. We need someone to come in from outside with game and things must change or it will die.
I do think out of self interest, the Super League Clubs will do their utmost to prevent change.
But the day will come, when decisions have to be made, this will be probably when the money runs out. Or the broadcaster withdraws.
When you look at the officers of both the Super League and RFL. It does not inspire you.

Agree with Bostwick. May need Sky to walk away to make change happen.......

Hard to see what the circumstances would be for that to happen. SL is an easy fit for the football close season, be interesting to see how far they try to drive down what they pay for the new TV deal in the end. Doesn't seem broadcasters are rushing to compete.

Think it depends on what the view is of the game dying! Without any TV money or decent tv money, the game might go backwards, with less full time pro players. Through history though its survived lots of things i cant see the game fully dying!.
Recovery from last year and whatever hapoens this year is the main challenge at the moment.
Interesting new team popping up in barcelona and maybe back up in scarborough, lets see if they get going

Never suggested game would die completely, but it is going nowhere at the moment.

Scarborough has been floated on/offf for a number of years, not sure what it would add to RL, Barcelona would be interesting..........

Well Cats had a great success with their game there having put a lot of effort into marketing the game (dirty word Marketing lol). Agree with you Brian Scarborough is just another Yorkshire town so bit pointless.

I believe bostys words were. " change or it will die" which you agreed with.
I just challenged the word die!
Dismissing a set up like scarborough, which yes has been tried several times is a bit silly o feel, not all growth has to be 100 miles away

I ask you this NB, a new properly funded club in Scarborough or a new properly funded club in say Bristol what is going to attract more coverage or at least appeal to Sky?

Problem is there is no fan base in bristol, as there wasnt at all golds, or oxford.
Coventry is a blazing success!
Any new club should be encouraged, wherever it is.
Expand from the edges might be the better option. Build on where there is interest rather than thinking along the lines of "build it and they will come option".

DC.
Dont get me wrong, i would love to see RL teams established and succesful in Bristol, Birmingham, nottingham, London, Glasgow.
Reality is that aint happening any time in any future me or you will see. There is not the money and there are not the fans or the players
