    A wishy washy article from the DT
    Typical Dean Ritchie garbage
    No direct quotes from the sheik
    Michael Ibrahim is probably mates with Dean Ritchie and wanted to get his name in the papers.

    This Qatari family is worth $60 billion. The Sheik is worth $3 billion. What 'huge benefits' could be used to entice a bloke worth that much money to buy us? He gets to hang out with Doust? He can have a meal with McGregor at Dapto RSL?

    If you believe this story can I offer you some magic beans at a very good price?

    Maybe he wants to be a saint.
    We’re the only team that can offer the big red V.
    Maybe he likes the colours.
    Maybe he can oust Doust & the imposter.
    He gets my vote, just look at Manchester City in the PL. A proper set up.

    Hey, the blokes worth $3billion. He could spend 1% of this ($30M) on buying the Dragons and improving the setup. Hell, he could probably buy Kogarah oval from the council and redevelop the whole area from what he spills on a Friday night!

    Agree Life, it's a bit pie in the sky.

    It's not a bad time to add interest in rugby league with the world cup. He's got interests with team's in the pacific which have done well and wants to introduce the game to Qatar.

    Who knows, a Charity Shield in Doha.

    This is what dreams are made off . One rich A-rab oil sheik , who has so much money that he wants to buy an NRL club . Possum is right on the money here - contact Doust and tell him he is oust !

    Break off negotiations with Gordon and lets court the the sheik , show him around the 'Gong ( don't forget the blowhole ) and then up to the Taj Mahal for lunch at Ke Kwong Dows - all you can eat morgasboard .

    What more could one want in life ? What more could one want in a N.R.L. Club ?

    With the Sheik running things the Dragons team for round 1 next season is:

    1. Billy Slater 2. Dane Gagai 3. Will Chambers 4. Josh Dugan 5. Valentine Holmes 6. Michael Morgan 7. Cooper Cronk 8. Aaron Woods 9. Cameron Smith 10. David Klemmer 11. Boyd Cordner 12. Matt Gillett 13. Josh McGuire 14. Wade Graham 15. Jordan McLean 16. Reagan Campbell-Gillard 17. Tyson Frizell

    And apparently we've still got room under the salary cap for Thurston and Inglis.
