The Salary cap should be scrapped : Tue Jun 11, 2024 11:28 am  
It’s funny, we change the competition format at the drop of a hat, probably averaging a different competition structure every 4 years yet the one consistent has been the salary cap, for some reason it seems untouchable.

It was brought in to

A) Level the competition because Wigan (the current holders of every domestic trophy) were winning everything.

B) Protect teams financially.

It’s done neither.

It’s levelled the competition in the worst possible way. The same teams win the title, but their quality is levelled down to be closer to the mediocre teams.

If it’s a choice between watching a high quality team win all the time or a lower quality one, give me the quality one.

I don’t think many can argue that super league isn’t stale. We all know who will win the grand final. It’ll be saints or Wigan.

Bring in some other mechanism to protect team financially, and allow the teams that can afford it to build higher quality teams.

More stars in the league will make it more marketable, more lucrative, and increase the standard of the major finals, the games that matter. Sure, the same teams might win, as they do now. But the quality will be higher.

I’ve said the exact same thing on these forums for the last 10 years.

Usually Wakefield or Leigh fans that disagreed with me but Wakefield will probably have changed their tune now they have a bit of cash.

If Wigans billionaire owner wants to splash his cash he should be allowed to. He shouldn’t be held back because wasters like Leigh. Hull fc and Salford might get upset

Scrapping the cap will please a lot of fans, until their club spends more than it can afford.
