But they'd go overseas for the coin, rather than because they're not enough spots here.
Cant see how getting rid of the cap is justifiable, there's simply no alternative unless we want a 6 team competition in ten years.
Ideal would be cap increase so we could pay our players what they get paid in England, and for each club being afford that increase without going bust.
Only solution, as Cameron says, is more revenue.
The problem with the ammount of players in the NRL now that arent up to it has come from the fact there's no organised second tier competition, if there was a full 16 team reserve grade and not that Qld Cup and NSW Cup jibberish then we'd have fringe players sticking in the game and pushing harder for spots.
We'll need to see pretty remarkable ammounts of money come into the game for a big salary cap raise to make a difference.

Thurston confirmed as being in for the Cowboys tonight. Only ended up missing one week of footy. The bloke's a freak. Whenever he gets injured he ends up coming back so much earlier than he should.
Boring seeing the same 3 or 4 teams win every year.
The salary cap is one of the best things about Australian sport. And the fact the Storm have been caught makes it even better.

Greg Inglis, Billy Slater, etc come on and join a sport that is growing, rich, has no nasty salary caps, professionally run and, best of all, each week you actually get to play something
