    RLA (Rugby League - Australia) for my choice of names. The name ARL should not be used as it is nothing but left over baggage from the old system.

    I love News Ltd's tactics - pay us $30,000,000.00 and we will walk away. Thanks but no thanks.

    Give them the $30mil to be rid of them, and then just tack an extra $60mil on the asking price for the next broadcasting rights deal to get it back.
