    Damn, Imagine if DSmith was still incharge now.

    The clubs suddenly arent so powerful and are going begging for funds. I would love to see what he made of the competition now that the clubs couldnt stop him

    So you’ll operate under different rules to others.

    Nrl and clubs will now stand down 90% of staff and players will have to take big pay cuts. Only way they get through this.

    Cap rising won’t happen, match fees for Origin too. There is savings that can be made in coming years

    Vlandys saying the game will have to borrow substantial amounts to see it through. I guess from news ltd as the banks aren’t likely to be lending them it? The Vlandys love in from the nrl360 team continues, apparently banks will lend us money as he is in charge lol

    News Ltd has wanted its lions share of money from Rugby League for decades now and has taken the profits and even paid some of its ACTUAL worth in recent years.

    Well blow me down but already, there are players putting up their hands to take this all off of Fox/News Ltd.

    I don’t know why you are so chirpy.

    A Perth team in the NRL just went back 50 years!!

    Which Sydney team will everyone support once this crisis kills off your Club?

    By my reckoning you’ll have a choice out of Souffs, Roosters, Sharks & Parramatta.

    Dogs Gone. No major sponsor & Leagues Club made a loss of 4million last year.

    Dragons Gone. Major basket Case.

    Tigers Gone. Basket Case.

    Manly Gone. Penn won’t stump up the cash to keep the Club alive. (Cheap Skate)

    Panthers Gone. 40 million dollars in the red with licenced clubs closed.

    I don’t think any of those clubs, aside from mManly will go as they are asset rich.

    It is a perfect for a new Governing body to walk in and wash their hands of having to make tough decisions in Sydney, it will be clear which clubs are not able to restart and the decision will be made for them.
