The club that sold itself to superleague after being perennially bailed out by the ARL/NSWRL pisses its millions of dollars of silver against the wall to be bailed out again.

Meanwhile we've lost Newtown, Wests, Balmain and North Sydney and tried to get rid of souths.

No wonder fans get pissed.

No matter how many times Cronulla is bailed out, they always end up on death's door.

Is it any wonder they always end up broke?

The St George and Sutherland region has a combined population of 500k. Cronulla doesn't have the history or brand recognition of the Dragons. They'll always be the smaller of the 2 clubs. If they were to relocate to Adelaide or Perth then they could become a real asset to the game.

Yep and like Jesus Christ every Easter we rise again...but if anyone read the article Vlandys also said that other clubs are in the same predicament as Cronulla.

That means the game is living beyond its means. What's going to happen when the money from broadcast rights begins to wane?

Commercial TV and Foxtel are dying. The money from this sector is not going to be there in 15 years. The salary cap and annual grant will have to be adjusted. Clubs who cannot support themselves may very well fall by the wayside. RU is growing overseas, so if our salary cap takes a hit then we could see an exodus of players to European RU. If the stars leave the game then it'll become less popular. We may very well need to get rid of the 130% annual grant so we can keep the salary cap strong enough to fend off European RU, which would mean cutting loose teams that cannot generate enough money to meet the costs of fielding a team in the NRL.

The Gold Coast and Cronulla.

Two failures that rugby league administrations keep pouring money into like a bottomless pit and one of which bit the hand that fed them and prostituted itself to the highest bidder

If they were to disappear no one would care.
