Ha I do actually agree with you on that one. Sounds like a loophole to me.

The quote about Stockport though is bull. He has apparently said since that it was taken out of context. We have taken close to 4000 on previous visits there.

One thing which must be noted though is his transfer dealings have been limited. We are not allowed to deal with Salford in any capacity with players going either way while scholes is here
Probably a good thing given their habit of poaching good players.

I'm thinking the loophole is maybe that they only look for actual hands-on involvement in the day to day running of the club, and don't take account of what is clearly an emotional rather than practical attachment to the club.

I still think it will be looked at again in the summer should Salford go up (which they wont anyway).

I note that Beckham's purchase of 10% of Salford now means the Class of 92 own the majority of the club. Although they're technically just 6 individual people, will they behave almost as if they were a holding company?
