If James Johnson is Ballsy, He'll take both these bids, if they can prove the finances, and build a 14 team league. There have been offers for CCM to stay in CCM also.

I think a 14 team league would be a better sell to broadcasters and advertisers/sponsors then another defunct team, especially at this point it time.  

We really can't afford to lose CCM, they are a family team of battlers like us and the Jets.   Plus we need a team that we can be assured of getting 6+ points a season from!    ;-)

this can only be good for the league right? assuming the FFA don't fudge it up.

Yep, and add an Auckland team while we're at it. Definitely need to find a way to expand from the present small number of clubs, even if it would be happening in tough times.

I'm not sure that given the current economic times, the league expansion is such a great idea. If anything, making sure that none of the current 12 clubs topple over in the next 12 months should be the main priority.

nah, if there are some rich people out there wanting to invest in new clubs then we have to encourage them. We can't keep the league small just to protect a club with an owner who doesnt really want to be here. If an owner cant sell his club now, when there are celarly interested parties wanting to get involved then that is their problem. Letting new clubs in is the way forward, protecting existing clubs with handouts etc is not gonna keep the league running.

Replacing CCM is one thing. New clubs coming on board means that the now much smaller cake has to be cut into even smaller pieces. The smaller pieces make the already struggling clubs fall over. Enough of them fall over, the league falls over, and the rich guys goes to buy a new plaything somewhere else, and we're left twiddling our thumbs. No thanks.

new clubs bring new money, and new negotiating power for TV deals...with the FFA out of the way then negotiation should be easier cos we dont have them taking their cut

but I do agree we dont need 4/5 clubs falling over at once (but I dont see that happening)

I like your optimism.

being hopeful is the only way to be, so much better than being negative and expecting doom and gloom
