Obviously, this is a matter for individual leagues to
consider and they are doing that now, however why not have a look at your own
league’s overall replies here.
We are now going to
take these results to leagues and encourage players to engage with club and
league AGMs to ensure players’ views are heard and taken into consideration
when voting for any changes to current arrangements.
All of these percentages change slightly with league and up
and down levels / divisions.
