The problems are no one at the RFL are good enough to Market SL none of them have the relevant experience, knowledge or expertise to market this great game. They are not prepared to take the necessary risks that are needed to take this game to the next level. The English premier league walked away from the football league and have never looked back they are now the richest league in world sport with everyone wanting to buy a piece of the action. Someone needs to take a risk, long term growth will come from the UK not Canada and the US. Scrap the Salary cap or at least increase it by doubling the cap. Clubs with small crowds they need to market themselves not rely on the SKY money why should teams with an average crown of between 4k and 5k hold back teams with crowds of 12k plus. Its time to take some risk take the blinkers off market SL properly and let the teams who can afford it buy better quality players from the NRL and not having to settle for the cream of the crap brigade.
for those who simply say that any increase in the salary cap would be paid into the players pockets, well I do not mind paying top quality players good money, but to pay good money to mediocre players then the clubs only have themselves to blame.
I have spoken to a number of SL CEO's they are desperate to keep the Salary cap and it just so happens to be , these guys run the teams with the small crowds, these are the same people who are keeping SL in the doldrums and are responsible for the teams buying players from the NRL at the lower end of the scale.
All this does by keeping the Salary cap is dragging everyone down to the bottom of the barrel and we can see that this year on the pitch.
I like how your blaming the cap on your present situation

Except he hasn't. Re-read it in context of the wider game rather than Leeds.

A win against Wakefield should take us out of the relegation dog fight.

Yep. There’s been maybe 2 games where we’ve looked to be anything like the standard we should be - the Saints and Salford games.

But in the vast majority of games, even ones we’ve won, we’ve looked far too soft to give us any kind of confidence for any opposition.

Should be a belter of a game, looking forward to it for once, I think maybe mentally the win against Wakey will have done us the world of good, lets hope for another gutsy performance.

I really think we should be turning Wigan over at home. Certainly shouldn’t die wondering.
