Honestly, if a club isn't sustainable, it's a drain on everybody else in the game, and it's not of any strategic value, then frankly if you can replace it and it's fans with a club that is sustainable and better supported, then you'd be mad not to do it. I look at it no different then any other business. If a McDonald's franchise was failing McDonald's wouldn't prop it up and keep it open because the owners and patrons of that McDonald's would be hurt by the decision, they'd close it and open a new one somewhere where it'll be a profitable business. Sure they may lose some customers from that, but they'll replace them and more and they won't have the burden of an unsustainable business on their hands. Look at American sports and try to tell me honestly that, with a few notable exceptions, they miss the clubs they've relocated and replaced. Hell, try to tell me honestly that RL misses Annandale, Glebe, Cumberland, Newtown, NS, etc. Sure their loss was sad, but we're better off for it, and we'd be better off for it if a few of the current smaller Sydney clubs were replaced with big city clubs in some new markets.
