Raelene Castle did a better job then David Tapp and John Lee

We must all do better to address rugby league's harmful treatment of women

When was Raelene Castle on the board of an NRL club?

what percentage of board members of the 16 NRL clubs are female?

The sad thing is that it has to be the NRL, not the clubs. A club can rip up a players contract, and the next week another club signs him. The NRL needs to step in to prevent the other club signing him

The NRL need to bring in punishments based on guilty verdicts. If a player is found guilty by a court, no matter the courts penalty, the player is suspended, no pay, for a set period. The penalty varies on what he was found guilty of. But the NRLPA are not interested in the game, just the wages of the top players

You’d think the leader of the team (ie coach) would do something about a player like May at his club. Instead, he allows him to date his daughter

broadcasters are also charities, they willingly give money to leagues that get minimal viewers.

It's too soon for an 18th team... but the NRL should still expand

yet no premiership to show for it

You need to think what you are trying to calculate. Is it a zero sum state? Or is it a total at the end of the season, for example at the end of the season WAR across the MLB totals 1000. WAR has a set adjustment based on position.

A replacement level player has a WAR of zero, and is basically a 4A player. In the NRL this would be somebody too good for state cup, but not good enough for NRL. Think Will Smith at Parra.

The place to start would be to get the stats that correlate with the points scored and points conceded. Create a formula off this and calculate it for each player

The hard bit is correlating the stats to points. Most widely used stats are useless in this regards, so ignore anything on the NRL site or published by fox

ELO is best used for individual sports. It was created for chess and is widely used in tennis, darts, snooker, etc. Most famous for the formula written on the window for the rating girls program in “The Social Network”. Pythag NRL is best ignored, he doesn’t really understand his own concepts. for example the exponent in the NRL for Pythag theorem isn’t close to 1.9

The NRL is an extension of the old NSWRL, not QRL

These “research” reports are built to give the answer the organisation paying for it wants. Questions will be skewed to make them look good, like “Do you support the return of the North Sydney Bears?”, and that can be interpreted as a support for the Bears, and “Would you go to a game if the North Sydney Bears were playing?”, and that is interpreted as potential supporters at a game, and not fans going to the see the opposition, i.e. the team they support, play.

Other questions will be so that there is no possible negative response, like “How much important is it to you that the North Sydney Bears are reinstated in the NRL?” And the only options are a) a little, b) a lot, c) it means everything. No option is available for “not at all”
