Really at this point who other than a private equity group would do it? And then if PE got involved, they either pump cash in, get it up to snuff and sell it on to another group and it's happy days and we are a competitive viable NRL club again or they sell the licence off it's game over.
Ultimately I think there are a group of clubs (that we are a part of) that the game and time has moved on from and it will be very hard for them to become an ongoing relevant factor again (when compared to I guess what you would label the super clubs - those that are well funded, good juniors, strong brand etc.)
And due to this a VERY big chance of not having their licence extended in the next TV round.
The QLD teams at the bottom will be safe , us and the Bulldogs will be in extreme danger of being booted.
The NRL will offer a severance deal ( I’d say 20-30 million ) and just relocate the licences to areas that are better funded and ready to go.
There’s at least three of them in the Brisbane area.
Perth may not be well funded but the timeslot they’d get would be gold for TV if they went down that route.
