Bristol & Exeter with their moneybags backers now look like being the last teams that will ever make the move......

I don't see why this should be the case. Exeter wouldn't be where they are now without Tony Rowe I daresay, but not because he's poured money into the club - he hasn't. Also, I don't know his net worth but I don't think he's rich enough to do a Bruce Craig. Rowe's input has been to make the club run as a business and become sustainable. That in turn allowed Exe to upgrade to a new ground and create a strong squad to transition from Championship to AP. He hasn't given the club money - SW Comms is a sponsor, same as every other club has. There's no real reason why another club couldn't do the same if there's a market for it.
