    Is the NRL right to offer its current 16 clubs permanent places in the competition?

    Clubs have reportedly accepted, in principle, an advance of $1.125 million each which will take the form of a loan until the new licensing agreements can be agreed upon. These licences grant the teams franchises "in perpetuity". There is still much work to do before the 16 clubs and headquarters can agree on these agreements, however.

    So what happens if a club goes bust? All bets off or do they have to bail them out?

    Then they could sell off their licence.:nod:
    The Bears could buy one :giggle:

    As there are only 16, it would be lucrative to do so. NFL, NBA constantly do it @:cool:
