    No Virtual NRL in 2005

    http://virtualnrl.creatop.com.au/

    We regret to announce that Virtual NRL will not be proceeding for the 2005 season.

    Despite the wonderful generosity of dozens of VNRL enthusiasts volunteering their time and effort to help maintain and run the game, there was insufficient corporate backing to enable us to sustain the costs of statistics, hosting, software development and technical support.

    We know how much this game means to league fans. It has become part of the rugby league landscape. The game's stalwart Chris Cox, who put so much of his time, blood, sweat and tears into it is particularly disappointed.

    However take heart, with the appropriate sponsorship, it will be back.

    We will be chasing corporate support, once secured we will come back bigger, better and ready to satisfy your desire for Virtual Rugby League supremacy!

    To everyone who has supported our game - whether it be through financial backing, publicity, or, most importantly, participation - we can not thank you enough, and we thank you in advance for your understanding of this very tough decision.

    To those who had amassed significant VNRL dollars last season and were looking forward to purchasing a full level account this season with them, good news. Whatever future game eventuates your VNRL dollars from 2004 will be redeemable.

    Thank you all once again, and we hope season 2005 brings success to whatever team(s) you support.

    If you are a corporate entity interested in being involved in the renaissance of this and possibly other games in 2006, we urge you to contact us at info@myvirtualsport.com

    Let the NRL know how you feel

    Some dedicated Virtual NRL fans are putting together a petition for the NRL to support our return in 2006. Visit the link below if you wish to view or sign the petition:
    http://www.petitiononline.com/vnrlpet/petition.html

    Please note, Virtual NRL had nothing to do with creating the petition, but we're humbled once again by the passion, enthusiasm and proactivity of our supporters.

    yeh i agree, VNRL certainly makes the NRL itself a lot more interesting, i was watching 5 or 6 games a weekend last season to see how my players went, now ill only watch broncos, raiders and friday night matches....

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
