This has been explained to you over and over and over again Fred. Yet you repeat the same rubbish over and over and over again.

Please retire from the argument and save yourself further embarrassment my friend.

FIVE years and a billion dollars later rugby league is broke.

Take a look at that figure again: $1,000,000,000. That is a thousand cheques for $1 ­million each, gone in the wind

Crowds have gone down, television ratings on Channel Nine are down, memberships have risen (but come from a low base and are well down on the 400,000 the NRL strived for as part of its 2012 strategic plan) and, most of all, most significantly of all, less people play rugby league than played five years ago.

Somehow, the game is in decline. Despite an agenda to build the game’s wealth the NRL has no assets to speak of except the long-term lease of League Central, a building on SCG Trust land.

The banks recently knocked back the NRL’s application for a $30 million bridging loan. The league dismissed the need for a loan as nothing more than the normal running of business, scoffing at us knuckleheads in rugby league who got worried they needed cash.

In their scoffing, though, they failed to acknowledge or disclose that the first step towards bankruptcy for any business is a cash flow problem.

Worse, why didn’t the banks consider the NRL a safe investment? The AFL got a similar loan, but then the AFL has assets.

So the cash shortage — $1 billion all spent — continues. ... 5d09cae3af

The original article noted above was the NRL’s reality in 2017. Imagine the new COVID-19 reality of 2020. Scary thought right? Eek.

Could some NRL clubs fold? Please correct me if I’m wrong, but from memory only 2 of the 16 NRL clubs are profitable right? And that was before COVID-19. :hmm:

"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.
