Re: Premiership Shares

Ideas were circulated in media/social but was there anything seriously proposed to PRL? I was talking more theoretically about a close 10 only but what I've seen of the two tier proposal was little more than kite flying.
I'd certainly expect that as current income is influenced by income shares/time in the prem then adding a second tier would have a massive impact on distribution that very few of the current voters would accept. They would have to accept the principle first before any of the other clubs have a say. So I struggle to see how equal funding for both tiers, or a reduction in their current income for the current top 10 would ever be accepted. As we know what seems the right thing to do rarely happens in English Pro rugby.
