What clubs should be encouraged to do is give the players time and training to support their new businesses but not cash/loans because that's too much a grey area and too much a question of who can afford to give/write-off loans. . Maybe there's an alternative that gives the arms-length detachment. Why not get all club owners to put some money into a pot administered by RPA (not PRL) with the objective of acting as a players' investment bank. All players have access. All loans must be repaid (eventually) with interest so after the initial funding it should be nett zero cost. There's no direct link between the club and the investment.
