RL Supporters Assoc AGM - 18/4/98

John,

Does the RLSA speak with one voice on:

    summer rugby

    who should negotiate the Sky contract ? ( and Neil Tunnicliffe was
saying on the radio last Sunday that the contract is currently being
renegotiated)

    how and where ( even whether) expansion clubs should be created?

    how amateur, first and second, and SL clubs should be fitted into one
structure?

( I'm not making any points - it's an honest enquiry, as I've never really
paid much notice to the organisation.)

John

The RLSA, which was born in The George Hotel in August 1990, does have a
couple of formal policy statements, The Fans Charter, and Blueprint 2000,
which you can read online at their official website:

http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Stadium/7921

That's a good starting point for anyone who wants to know more about the
RLSA generally, along with its sister site (my baby! See link below, do
visit, often!!) which is the online version of the RLSA fanzine "The
Greatest Game!", plus loads of other RL stuff too.

The online edition will be updated soon (oh god, more work!), as a new issue
of the mag has just been published, and jolly good it is too. Buy it now,
everybody :-)

Where from...? Details are on the website(s)

By the way, don't tell a soul, but Neil Tunnicliffe is a former member of
the RLSA, and the RFL's official historian, Tony Collins, was a founder
member. The infiltration has begun in earnest!!

World domination by teatime Friday...
