    Maybe (and very possibly) the sheik has never seen a game of rugby league, and this 'news' is nothing more than a DT fabrication?

    Apparently Bruce Gordon was in meetings today. Just a rumour, but he has been deemed the savior for a mere $8 mill. 6 mil to get them out of debt and 2 Mil to spend. Unreliable source but it'll be interesting how it works out.

    Just read the Channel Nine Sport's coloumn in regards to this Sheik , a friend to no less than Mr. Michael Ibriham , whom apparently , according to the report , is a Dragon tragic? ? ? What's the old saying - " Between the devil and the deep blue sea " .

    You mean you couldn't find a place in your heart for Woods or Smith?

    It won't happen so I will never have to grapple with that.

    Well, Ibrahim got a guy from Oman to give $40 000 to Penshurst RSL as a joke. They just throw money around for shits and giggles.

    Jokes aside, this would be a terrible outcome.

    I did hear about that mate. Thing is, if this Ibrahim is so connected and a Dragons tragic, why hasn’t he helped steer some funds to TPA? That is a smaller investment with much less headache.
    This is the basis for my scepticism.
    Mind you if it was to happen I would be very happy as it would sheik things up enormously.

    I was wondering that myself. It's good to know that this idea has some precedent though
