Well ive been discussing with charlie and decided to create a thread to outline what i would do to make the GP the kind of league that rivals the EPL in terms of having the top talent playing the top talent and so on. What i would do if i were ahead of the GP is simple. * Make an attempt to break down the Magners League, and divide the top squads from that into a league with the top squads from the GP. The same 12 team setup. * Make an attempt to reorganize the lower leagues. National 1 could be filled with squads who didnt quite make the cut from the Magners and current GP such as Mid Table squads like London Irish, Newcastle, Wasps along with teams from the Magners who are in a similar position. Make this league 10-12 teams as well. * Make the "National 2" and stick the current bottom feeders of the Magners and GP in with a few teams from the current National 1 (leeds etc.) and make that a 12 team setup. * Keep going with that current plan until its a well organised plan for a tiered promotion and relegation league. * Secure sponsorship for the top 3 leagues here and try to get some form of sponsorship for the lower league teams as well. * Make particular regulations for top league teams such as stadiums over a certain set amount of capacity and also make the lower leagues have a certain capacity (unless of course the team that moves into say national 2 are so small that they cannot afford it, a special dispensation would be made for that case.) * Secure TV rights, thats a big one. Not just one channel on Sky, but try to get a good public broadcaster and carrier of games so that as many people as possible can watch the games. * Ditch the one foreigner rule. Sure there is need to develop the homegrown talent BUT people want to see good top talent rugby not a bunch of guys who are being groomed for the RFU and are only in there because they are 1.) English and 2.) Have potential. I'm sure that if the guy is good enough he will make the grade to get into the squad, if he's not good enough he'll have to play for the reserves. Plus with more leagues more guys will gain the opportunity to play, 1st, 2nd or even reserve team rugby. *Set up an ALL EUROPEAN challenge cup similar to the one in the engage Super League. Fashion it similar to the FA Cup so that there can be that chance for the little giant killer to step up with the big boys and make some good money. Not only will it be good for competitive status, but it will be good for the little guys bank account and a good wake up call for the big teams. I will edit this post further on as i think of more ideas. Discuss below!
