That's not consolidating that's diluting. Why not have St George Illawarra as currently run?! It's working pretty well. An abandonment of either the eastern suburbs or St George area would be disastrous. Locals are big on being local. When they sense abandonment watch them run out the door! As a Roosters fan I would not like the Roosters to relocate as I see it as an abandonment of their area in Sydney. Not good at all. I suggest a reinvigorated Central Coast Bears would gain more for the game than the sure fire disasters that will occur in St George and East Sydney if those relocations occured. I'm not putting more pain and suffering into established fanbases . The tenth club in this massive area of North Sydney and Central Coast will benefit surrounding clubs and the code. Dilution of the code and heartache for locals will be avoided and lost fans with new fans gained . That's what consolidating is. No trace of abandonment or dilution. Genuine growth in sustainable and proven areas that follow rugby-league.
