    Isn't it good we're not on the teat of the Leagues Club like most of our major arch rivals?  We're 10 years ahead of most and this is going to allow us to become a major Sydney (and hated) power again.

    I dont have much sympathy for clubs who rely on getting income from pensioners on the pokies and smokers giving everyone cancer.

    Actually last night I heard that the weekend trading at the Leagues has dropped from $150k per day down to $65K per day over recent months.

    The Bunnies should stay in WA and take up GayFL.

    Nobody goes to the Dragqueen's games or the hapless rabbelo's.  Both teams should be shown the door or at least relocate them as far away from Sydney as possible.  And while I'm showing the door to those ****e teams, I'd kick Gallop out the door with them.  The games gone backwards under him.

    Manly is okay for now as we are doing well. Bad weather, low crowds and lower sponsorship could hurt us though.

    What irks me is that the Sharks and Panthers are in the same boat now as they were prior to the Supergreed wars. They went with News to ensure their survival, along with the Judases at Belmore and said 'Stuff You' to the other Sydney Clubs. Having since lost Norths, Balmain, Wests (in their own right) and Illawarra (it is a St G team) it is ironic that they are now again in danger.

    The News Limited agenda is still to cut down teams - but whether they will let clubs fall on their own swords or push them over, remains to be seen.

    I have no issue with New Ltds agenda regarding Sydney having too many teams, we do.  I just pray we are not one of the teams to fold or relocate.  Although I would rather relocate than merge.

    I do have problems - what was done during SuperLeague was bastardry, placing teams against other teams in selfish interests rather than what was best for the whole game.

    Let the clubs fall off the perch on their own rather than orchestrating it. Brand new clubs like the Cowboys, Storm and Broncos trying to shaft clubs like Wests, Balmain, Norths, Manly etc stunk, especially when it was in favour of Dogs, Sharks and Panthers. Had Superleague succeeded there would be no Manly, No Parra and No Roosters etc The Beagles experiment showed what would it was - House football with no heart, culture, history or passion!!!

    If a couple of teams do rellocate, it makes the Sydney sponsorship market that much more attractive to Manly as Mata said.

    What about the mountains of million $$$ the member for Penrith has attained for their ground, only to see them potentially go bust !!
