You do realise calling names and storming off, rather than discussing the matter at hand, is a sign of someone losing an argument?

I wouldn’t expect anything less than that from someone who doesn’t know St George have won 16 premiership though.
Hah hah you talk in circles ..... & technically I am right St George have 15 premierships & St George Illawarra have one as a merged club .

Reading between the lines it says that the deal was done prior to the virus.

That after he was signed that the virus has created “ trying and uncertain times”

The club will make no further comment, no welcome, no boasting no “ looking forward” to Tyson’s future contribution etc.

It’s the coldest reception in rugby league history, simply because the club has been gutted by an indefinite cessation of most of its activities and it has no idea where the money is coming from that it can normally rely upon.

They are not alone, that’s for sure, that critical matter is probably yet to be resolved for every club, every business and almost all people.

I am not aware of the knights books, and not speaking about them specifically, but If any club doesn’t have enough to cover the players, they can go to court, but even if they win, it’s unlikely that the money is there and they are simply wasting their time.

If he’d stayed with sgi, it’s hard to say whether or not he would better off. On the balance, I think so. This is a time for good intent and he’s lost that to many people. Had he stayed, I’d say he’d have more influence here than he has at the knights.

it was only a few weeks ago that a lot of these ex player idiots in the media were telling us we should play on with crowds and risk the health, welfare and livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people.

It’s 16.

And it’s not a merger.

I’m beginning to think you may be a troll from another club.

Using Wikipedia? That's OK. Nothing there about 'exited'. Plus I think you may need to have another look, from the same source at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._George_Dragons

Entering the New South Wales Rugby Football League in 1921, the St George club celebrated its 16th premiership in 2010[1], including 11 in succession between 1956 and 1966, a record for sporting competitions at the time. The Dragons thus became second to only the South Sydney Rabbitohs in terms of total premierships won in the NSW Rugby Football League. Following the Super League war and formation of the NRL in 1998, the club still remain in a joint venture with the Illawarra Steelers known as the St. George Illawarra Dragons.

Simple question
Did anybody that ever won a premiership at St George prior to 1998 have the word Illawarra on their jersey or the word Illawarra in their playing contract or was it ever on the JJ Giltinan Shield when it was the premiership trophy?
St George as a singular entity won 15 premierships and as a merged entity it has won 1.
The merged entity and the former entity are not IMO one and the same entity.

Generally, I appreciated the thought that goes into your posts OT, but this time you’re off the mark.

SGI is a JV (or was), not a merger.

Doesn’t the Wikipedia source also use a disclaimer stating “not to be confused with St. George Illawarra”?

If you are correct then no problems for me just substitute merger with JV.
Either which way St George was once a singular entity that won 15 premierships in its own right.
St GI have won 1
The St George name appears 16 times within the name of premiership winning teams

Here's an even simpler question. Have you stopped supporting St George? Just a yes or no will do.

And it's a not a 'merged entity' ffs, it's a joint venture. The source you linked to acknowledges that as well.

Still is a JV, only now it is between St George and WIN - well documented that WIN bought out the Steelers share and paid out their debt to St George.

Originally the two parties (St George and Illawarra) reviewed it about once every 5 years. This doesn't happen in a merger.

I support St George in all forms they play in as as an entity of their own.
If St G were playing IS in SG Ball I certainly wouldn’t be cheering for anyone other than St George.
St George do not have a singular entity in the NRL they have an entity that includes Illawarra so due to a severe lack of options I support StGI but that IMO is a different entity to the St George entity or brand as I know or knew it.
