It's VERY early days yet but a quick peek at the Championship table shows it being dominated by London, Canada and the South of France. Who says it's an M62 game now? LOL

JD postings are like buses, nothing for months then two in 5 minutes.

It is good that non-heartland clubs are flying the flag - but,of course,all the clubs named

above are full time - and the spectating public,as well as a few club officials,I suspect,

are unaware of what the structure may be moving forward,and whether or not promotion or

relegation is certain at the end of this season.

More worrying,for me,was this little bit,placed fairly secreted,at the top of page 2,

Future For League 1 Clubs

Sorry.I tried the link myself.Went to my log-in for Pocketmags and when I tried it again it
did go to the RLE.

Cutting a few paragraphs away it states there is a meeting on Friday between Championship
and League 1 clubs where a discussion is to take place about the deregulation of League 1.

This would mean League 1 becoming an amateur competition.

Interesting when there was a rumour about New York funding a Toronto-like club,starting
in League 1 in 2019.

Further to that I have just read on another forum that a contributor to the forum had a

discussion with a Match Commissioner and they will no longer be required next month!

The plot thickens and the buses are still coming.

RLE should have a better website!!

It is not the website I linked.


It is the digital download of/from the newspaper.

The structure and future of the game should be decided some time this year.

Some information may be made public after that.

Absolutely nothing would surprise me.

There was also this - from the chairman of Batley Bulldogs

Which May Hint At Breakaway From Breakaway Super League Clubs

Which may hint at lack of/or no central funds being spent outside of the Super League

clubs.

Interesting times...

Didn't football do the exact thing when the premier league was formed?

Playing top flight soccer is the "be all and end all" now. All the cash is there and seems to stay there!!

Although Scottish football declined the structure(s) recently adopted by Rugby League

the promotion/relegation and play-off system which it seems is about to change,again,

Scottish football is also undergoing game-wide alteration with a view to gaining


a better tv deal.


Source - Don't Know How Meeting Went

They take it so seriously that they have planned meetings in their parliament

Maybe Politicians Are Better Than The RFL & Super League Owners

Here's a link which has just appeared.


The meeting is being held at Doncaster - who are bidding to host a World Cup game,a few

years hence.I hope there is a Welsh bid in for a World Cup game.


MEETING - FRIDAY
