If the 20 team proposal means that teams can be promoted and relegated from the top division without fear of a total implosion, then this should be good for the stability of the game. Of course, this would mean fairer distribution of money across the two divisions, a point the top teams might not like.

The second tier would certainly become more marketable and could generate a TV deal in its own right.

I fear for what may happen to the rest of us. Six teams in the present Championship would be cut adrift plus the 10 sides in League One. A 16 team league would probably be too big whilst an eight team league would be too small, or it'd mean 'splitting' halfway through the season which is a pain in the backside.

If we do get promoted this season, the challenge of making the top six in the Championship at the first attempt would be very demanding indeed.

I can understand the idea of having more quality in Super League however two divisions of ten teams will obviously lead to less revenue unless more round robin fixtures are introduced which for me spoils the league.

I was reading the Hull forum yesterday and they very much share this view: round robin or loop fixtures spoil the league. We know from experience how messy it gets when the league splits halfway through a season. Planning holidays around unknown fixture lists etc, is a nightmare.

Teams probably need a minimum of 14 home league games to bring in the revenue they need. That can't happen with a 10 team league unless you split it into two fives, to generate 4 more home games... but then that would basically be replicating the play-offs before they happened. Playing the same teams too often also makes it boring.

It's all certainly a difficult puzzle to solve and whichever way the RFL jump isn't going to suit everybody!

May main hope is a sefish one in that I hope the Dons have still got a league to play in.

Edit due to being off topic.

I would presume (dangerous I know) that Carl Hall should, given his connections, be in a position to know what the heck is likely to be happening over the next two seasons. A statement in the near future would help.,

I fear if the new proposals go ahead the future of the 16 teams not in the two top divisions would be very bleak especially if they are not allocated any TV money, survival for these 16 teams would be very difficult as Private Fraser said We Are Doomed

On this occasion Geoff I agree . There was mention of a Seperate TV deal.

An update on the proposals:

https://www.totalrl.com/super-league-reorganisation-not-yet-agreed/

I mentioned on a different thread that there could well be no promotion from League One in 2022 should six teams be relegated from the Championship. If four teams are relgated from Super League in 2022, it would also be highly unlikely anyone would be promoted from the Championship.

To get to two leagues of 10 and 10 plus League One potentially provides a dead season for all but those in Super League.
