Well Turdy has started
No F###TURD .You are, you cretin.
YEP. Merge Easts and Souths. Merge Doesn'tmatta and Canterbury. Good idea Greenturd!
There is so much spin and propaganda in this article I don't know where to start. Oh, and it was originally published in the Courier Mail in Brisbane, if the content wasn't a giveaway... https://outline.com/7bCJvk
Absolutely the way it should go.
Who wrote that? Joh Bjelke Petersen??
Don't you worry about that...
You guys have got this all wrong: this is how you save money!! You get an incredibly biased Queenslander to write an article, rather than giving $5m and instructions to KPMG to write the report you want... Kudos Mr Greenturd!! You magnificent, slimy, pathetically obvious piece of evil financial genius poo!
An article peddled by news filth about dropping Sydney teams, they wont stop at anything will they? Truth is I hate to admit it that the ARL won the short term war and Super League is winning the long term war. Greenturd and his cronies have so alienated so many fans in this city in particular that its convenient if a couple of teams folded so that makes the select clubs even more powerful. When are the Sydney clubs going to realise that if they do not band together, this git will do this and if not out club some fans are going to lose their team and I hated seeing that happen to Balmain, Wests, Norths, Illawarra and St George fans. The mergers have not entirely worked and ripping up the fabric of what has made the competition what it is is just going to further alienate fans and turn them away from the game. We face in the next few years, pressure from News Limited and the TV deal about expansion and relocation of teams. More now than ever the clubs must unite to thwart this onslaught and that starts by removing the stain on our game which is Greenturd and his useless team!!!
I love this line: "no matter how responsible Greenberg and the code’s governors attempt to be" Didn't Greenflog and the NRL spend $30-50k on a 1 night farewell for John Grant prior to his departure.... Imagine what $50k would have done for a country rugby league club doing it tough.... No no no, the NRL farewell night needed to be black tie with champagne and caviar..... #NoRealLeadershipNRL
To be fair, Sydney probably does need two less clubs......but no fan is willing to give up their slot My thoughts would be The Sharks and unfortunately the Tigers (rough to cop for them as they already merged. Brisbane Tigers & Perth Sharks
What these dopes fail to recognise is that in a competitive market like Sydney you lose a whole supporter base by axing teams. Other than that dill shane on talkin sport, people don't just support another team, they walk away and you don't just lose them but you lose whole families for generations.
Yep spot on.... Cousins of mine were dyed in the wool Bears supporters... one of them played lower grades for the club (poor bastard). Anyways... none of them (three brothers) have anything to do with the sport anymore... one of their sons plays league in Qld and supports the Donkeys, but the rest of the kids are into AFL... there’s a story for ya Toddy Boy!
Agree you would. IMO it won’t happen like that , I think they’ll just cut two clubs. Because fans in Perth / Brisbane want their own clubs , not ones that have been transplanted.
On the contrary I think we actually need reduction, not expansion. Just kick Brisbane out.
Got it. Compare Manly vs Norths to a game of Manly vs Titans.... no emotion or buy in. Winning means little.
I know lots of people who are like this too. I didn’t follow the game in the NE years until Manly returned, and I’d do it again if they relocated or merged.
Can they take WA with them?
No point pointing the finger and looking to blame others We supporters are accountable . We all have an opportunity to strike back at the NRL This is the only way ..... RAISE OUR CLUB MEMBERSHIP NUMBERS AND RAISE OUR CLUBS STATUS
