A 5 Point may not be a big deal over a 30 league season , but if the season does not start until after 3rd October the season becomes effectively a 15 game season , with the league splitting after 15 games at stage two and the clubs are either the top 8 or the bottom 8 to play off for promotion or relegation and in window 3 it is a straight 15 games so effectively it will  be a double penalty.

Why is it that an administrative error, that has no direct benefit to the club on the pitch receives a points deduction and yet a drugs offence by a player, that presumably does garner an onfield benefit to the club, doesn’t?

A very good point! One that no doubt the Blazers at the RFU have considered................... over a long lunch. 
Enjoying life!

I would think DMP are in a horrible position as I believe the money to run the Arena comes from bookings and like most there haven’t been any and I would not imagine that the overheads are small even with a closed shop

The loss of rugby and rugby related income is effecting us all to varying degrees but, those Clubs who are clearly 'asset' rich are often wrongly assumed to be also 'cash' rich. This is hardly ever the case and I believe that it is 'asset' rich Clubs who are feeling the effect of the restrictions the most.
Clubs with sizeable Clubhouses/facilities almost certainly need a regular income to simply meet the regular bills & expenses that having such facilities will bring. A large part of that income is usually not rugby related and, rugby apart, it is probably the loss of this income which is currently crippling 'asset' rich Clubs.
I assume that Clubs who do not own their Clubhouse/Playing facilities and simply finance a 1stXV squad will probably be feeling little financial effect from the Covid-19 restrictions.

I agree with Sid James, my Club is asset-rich and we have lost £160k of revenue this summer. We have used the Government grant and furlough schemes and done an appeal which has offset a lot of that. We have reopened our Bar and BBQ at weekends and next month start external bookings again but it has been hard this summer. As Secretary I am doing three times the work I would normally do to ensure that we can take advantage of every opportunity. We will survive but we know that funding the next two seasons will not be easy, one of the reasons we are pleased to be welcoming London Scottish in Sept 2021.

If true, it could do if a relationship between DMP and Chinese clubs can be developed. Hiwever, are there any football teams looking fir a new home?

Or Falcons move south as they seek bigger crowds?

Great news, I’m jumping in first and ordering the set meal for 2 and a pot of curry sauce.
Beats the standard steak pie or burger...

Are they that much in the soup?
I guess they could always re-name it the Bird's Nest.
If your nephew has been Peking he could probably confirm that.
