    Well on channel 9 last night Todd Greenberg’s comments lead towards the NRL are serious about moving 1 Sydney team. Well if it was to happen, which one would move and why ?, not because you just hate a team, what are some clubs really lacking in.

    Id say Manly, but Brookvale is getting a facelift so who knows.

    Relocation would be a mistake. Theyll come to same conclusion as auskickers. There isnt enough broad support to kill one of the clubs as they all have their positives, Sydney RL would be poorer for losing a club, so theyll eventually do what auskick did and decide to expand to 18.

    Sydney clubs happy, new cities happy, and broadcasters with an extra game in two key markets happy. Win win

    If you go the geographical argument, roosters or Souths. Both lay claim to the east/south east corridor, but are pretty well boxed in outside of that

    As i said the other week, the Souths ceo confirmed a few years ago that 80% of their members don’t even live in the south of Sydney any more

    On that basis, it’s goodbye Souths

    If they moved the dogs I’d understand as well. Don’t have a huge geographical space to lay claim to and don’t really have a sustainable/quality home ground option

    Dragons should do the smart thing. Make Wollongong their base and play “marquee” games in Sydney.

    If they try and move some washed up Sydney license to Brisbane as Team 2, they're more stupid than everyone thinks they are.

    It’s either Manly or Canterbury. You’ve heard it here first.

    We can all speculate as much as we want. We can all give our ifs and buts, but in the end we all knows the Sharks are in the gun.

    No doubt if you were starting a new NRL from scratch tomorrow the Roosters/Souths area would be occupied by one club.

    Next to no chance they would ever relocate either of the two current clubs even though it makes the most sense.

    No he didn't.

    He ran through a list of options and that was one of them. Not sure how he basically said anything.
