That screen is from the last round of franchising, with London on there and Wakefield still known t the Wildcats ?

The "new" structure is no longer about sport and is now about money, money and money.
Can you imagine if the Premier League adopted the same system ?

I’m quite optimistic about this.

I think it will be a very positive move for Trinity in providing an opportunity to secure some stability and certainty.

The issue under the old system was facilities.

We have or are addressing that now.

We have elite Academy Status.

We are not as a club losing money hand over fist.

We have survived in SL as a viable entity for 20 odd uninterrupted years.

Attendances could be an issue however but I think on the face of it and not knowing the criteria we now look a decent prospect.

I’m not saying that we will be a Cat A club, but I expect there is a good case for us being a solid Cat B club.

I’d say Cas for example have much more to worry about.

We also need to now on top of the criteria what the league looks like. I cannot see it reducing under the new system but I could see it growing by 2 depending on the situation with the next broadcasting deal.

Looking on social media today everyone is as usual having s meltdown about it.

Just under 19000 responses to the survey.

I do wonder how many of the people kicking off about the proposals were part of the 19000 that participated by completing and returning it.

At least it's a vision!

The franchising era was probably the peak of super league in terms of viewing figures and grand final attendances.

If what is said is right, the big clubs remain big. Those not-so-big clubs have a chance to join them if they can satisfy the criteria. If not, it's yo-yo with the other not-so-big clubs.

The issue is really how do you get to be a Category A and can you ever lose it? You have to work on the assumption that this is a permanent thing, so clubs need to have something to aim for in terms of investment and facilities. Also, clubs shouldn't assume protection forever. It would be nonsense if, for example, a Category A club crumbled financially in 2033 (Bulls anyone?) and didn't run academies or whatever but retained Category A because of how they were doing in 2023.

And, of course, the thorny issue of what happens if a big club finishes bottom. Does a Category B team go down or is one prevented from coming up?
EVENTUALLY, WE'LL WIN SOMETHING, ,MAYBE, IF I'M STILL ALIVE THEN

I might be wrong, not a fan of the round ball game but wasn't some clubs protected from relaxation and some were not ?

I’m beginning to think IMG are not the all singing all dancing saviour we’ve been led to believe.
Below is a link to everything we need to know about the new proposal, I see there’s quite a lot of decisions not been finalised and so many ambiguities it appears decisions are being made on the hoof.

That's an old picture. Harlequins, Celtic and Bulls are on there too.

Which beggers the question, why is it up there?
