Super Rugby - The limit of growth in practice

02 April 2013, 12:06
In the modern world and especially among economist there is a belief the there is no limitation to growth. Something SANZAR seeming also believe in. They keep on chasing the money irrespective what effect or impact it might have on the environment or for that matter the people that love the game of rugby and the game itself.

SANZAR is acting irresponsible in the way they are constantly expanding the competition and not only is the quality of the teams diluted but the quality of overall performance of the refs is also very poor. This is probably the single biggest limitation of growth of super rugby. This limitation of growth should be consider a reality and a real threat to the game. Every week there is complaints about poor refereeing, refs is blowing the one team out of the game or making poor decisions which is not even disputed and that cost teams games.

Based on my own meandering observation it also seems that there are teams that is more expose to these types of "match fixing" than other.

I suggest for the game and the competition to growth it should be a case of less equals more. A saying that is commonly used to describe for innovation and evolution in the business world. I think we should look abroad for some guidance in the matter. The current limitations, the strain and the player resources and the competency of the refs will be address in the minor adjustment. 
It is not my purpose to give you all the technicalities of the solution or proposals but should you be interested I will forward you all the technical details. But here with a outline.

Divide the competition in two divisions, Premier league and second division and each division should have two groups. This way the less skill and resources gifted teams and technically incompetent refs can all participate in the second division. Overall this will ensure more games, better games, better officials in the top flight, more franchises, more development opportunities, and will make a lot more scene and money.

I hope someone out there is listing or is SANZAR just operation one of those multi-million dollar companies that is acting irresponsible as if they are waiting for the next "oil spill" before they do something.
