    You clearly have zero understanding of the Valleys (or Welsh rugby for that matter) and your arguments are all based on the franchise system and how great it should be (it clearly isn't).

    Going back is not an option, I haven't once said that we can or should. The mistakes have been made, but this reset could look to fix some of the damage done. How they do that is down to those who SHOULD know the realities facing the franchises.

    You clearly have zero understanding of how to multiply.

    500 people times a fiver a head does not multiply up into the revenue needed to run a professional team.

    The Valleys are home to around 30% of the population and it is far less diverse (including in terms of sports) than Cardiff.

    Not that that is relevant to my point, it just shows yours is asinine.
