Anybody who lives outside of Exeter can see plain as day that Tony Rowe ploughs big money into the club via his company, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, it is the most tax efficient way of doing it. For some bizarre reason, people who live in or near Exeter just won't accept that to be the case. Must be something in the water.

I do take your point, that if for example Rotherham were to find a rugby enthusiast with a hugely profitable telecoms business, and that telecoms business decided that spending huge amounts of money in 'sponsorship' of Rotherham rugby club was just what the company needed to get their message out there (just coincidence of course, nothing to do with the company big cheese also being involved with the rugby club), then Rotherham could find themselves competing at the top level too.

That is the reality of the current league structures. Unless one of the Championship clubs finds such a backer they will be forever excluded form realistically competing in the Premiership.
