Friday sees arguably the most important meeting of clubs since the formation of Super League in 1996.
Attached is an interesting article setting out the proposals.

Gary Schofield on Twitter calling for clubs to vote in the interest of the game. I wonder if the SL chairmen will agree with that?

I really dont see how this vote will go through - although i couldn't see the other one either -  Why would anyone in the Champ want big spending Bradford in it?  And why would the lower teams want to lose their away support?  I hope we vote to keep the same structure as is.

The game is dying at both professional and ameuter levels due to miss management.

Top team promoted automatically. Positions 2 to 5 will playoff with the winner promoted. Losing finalist will play the team that finishes bottom of Championship with the winner competing in the Championship for 2019. Loser  wil play in Championship 1.
2 games to go. You couldn’t make it up!

Why can't the idiots that run the game realise that crowds are dropping because they are constantly changing things!!! There needs to be some stability in the league structure and thus allow the paying public to get to grips with the format. 

The lower leagues have suffered with this sort of interference for years, hence the reason why people lost interest years ago.

The game is dying on its a***e and the idiots that run the game are merely speeding ups the process with their constant meddling!

Team finishing top promoted, fair enough.

2 - 5 play offs higher placed team at home, winners to final, merit in this.

Then loser of final gets second chance verse bottom club in championship? rediculous on many levels.

If Rochdale finish bottom their playes might well look to move on or as season has suddenly extended they may have family commitments in place and they will need to twiddle their thumbs for 3 weeks waiting to see who they are playing. No mention of venue for this game, will Rochdale have home venue or will team that has battled through play offs get the nod. Cannot see it being a neutral ground because of no clarity of geography of teams.

Rank bad idea.

Wont affect us this season even if we beat york on last game of the season will take a miracle to finish in top 5 with Oldham and hunslet having easier last games the day before you would think last day of the season every game would kick off at the same time

Think that is psalmist marra.  If Bradford beat Oldham it is in our hands.  York losing all their players back to Hull kr and aren't looking the same team recently.  Plus we have beat them four tight games in a row.  And at last we are training properly which didn't half show against Hunslet.
