As long as the RFL never accepts a cut in sky cash does it really matter ??

There has to have been some kind of sweetener to Champ and Champ 1 clubs which we don't yet know about.

There is no way that so many clubs would have voted to blow their brains out.

As GFB says, the clubs are likely to have been suckered in by promises which may not be able to be delivered. When it comes to the Sky negotiations I know who I am backing ........

Turkeys/Christmas/Super League/Greedy are a few words that come to mind.

The game in 3 years will have lost quite a number of 'heritage' teams due to this.

I can't spake!

A landslide …………..

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/45520586

I must admit I think the 8s are seriously flawed as it creates dead rubber leagues re the Super 8s and the Championship Shield and now Fax have made it to the Qualifiers I'm not really enjoying seeing us get tubbed every week. We'll have a far better chance of promotion going forward as I now think the top Championship clubs won't feel the need to go full time with SL players in preparation for the end of season clashes with the SL clubs, and it'll be far more exciting taking part in the old style top 5 play offs.

We won't stand a chance of promotion without going full time and with less money that unfortunately is even further away than it is at the moment. Obviously the top 5 play off will only be for SL clubs with our league top goes up meaning it will be harder for clubs like ourselves to market games past the half way point once it becomes clear that we have no chance of promotion or no carrot to aim for like there is now.

Well the SL clubs have now got what they asked for so go and make it the flag ship comp you say you can.

No more scapegoats, no body else to blame like you have been doing for all the failures.

The 8s don't create dead rubber leagues. There are always going to be dead rubber games in a league.

Fax are getting tubbed partly because they just scraped into the middle eight and partly because there's a huge disparity between full time Div 1 clubs and part time Div 2 clubs. Creating a competitive under competition is the great challenge the game faces.

Let the club tell us then. The club belongs to the supporters and I'm sure our sponsors would like to know too. It's our club.

The club does not belong to the supporters. it belongs to the owner or the largest share holder. As much as you would like to think you own it because you come to watch the games, it does not.

We seem to be very negative on here lately. we have a good club a good team who have done well this season and some very dedicated supporters group.
