How many days did you spend arguing and you still cannot bear to admit that
"cricket has benefited from the involvement of Australian Football ".

The SMH is RU through and through .

Facts have never been part of your biological makeup has it Nines?

It's not your fault is it?

The West Australian is AFL through and through and you are telling me they have never been on an Anti-Dockers agenda?

Exactly the same with Union. You can put Union in the paper, but actually have an 'anti' Force agenda.

I hope Jeffles finds the newspaper article. But the fact they did not put Queensland Reds losing 4.1 million on the backpage this year...says something...

I agree that the RU writers for the SMH are anit-Force. They very rarely have anything positive to say and are always quick to criticise the club. By comparison the Waratahs are only ever criticised for what happens on the field. I think that Greg Growden in particular resents the Force's existence.

Nines as a Western Australian

I thought it would be obvious

"They don't give a sh*t about WA and are still pissed off that Victoria should have had the license, so they will do everything they can to destabilise the Force".

When the reality is its just full of sh*t and the club are the most successful expansion franchise within the first five years of existence. The fact it made a profit in season one and season two and got larger average crowds then Port Adelaide. Is never mentioned. The SMH have been focusing on the errors (which I have even mentioned errors, every organisation is not perfect). It does not at all, ever suggest what a great job the ARU has done for the gains it has made in Western Australia. And the revenue it has delivered for WA Rugby to make a mark on player participation and thus more potential players for the Wallabies into the future.

It will then decide to go on an investigation to uncover the dirt in the backroom. Again they don't look at the dirt behind the Reds, Brumbies or Waratahs.

A clear agenda trying to destabilise the very notion of a WA club. Especially one after the first two years that had stronger membership then any other club and was making their muscle shown. Challenging the established mantle of Union power...

I stand by what I said before. Here is the article.

www.smh.com.au

Force, is at risk of folding according to a report in today's West Australian.

The newspaper says that an independent report compiled by LEK Consulting shows the Force are on track to lose $2.8 million dollars this year. The loss is on the back of the failed sponsorship from to the Firepower scandal and crowds staying away from Subiaco Oval as it is unsuitable for watching rugby. Membership with the Force has nearly halved since 2006 while the average home crowd attendance over the same period of time has plummeted by nearly 10,000. (No, plummeted from last season)

The Force will play at Members Equity Stadium next year and the report obtained by the West Australian says that the move will help ease the final hemorrhaging. However, the problem will not be fixed with franchise's bottom line unless the West Australian government spends $73 million it promised in 2004 to upgrade the facility and increase the capacity from 18,000 to 25,000. (This is the major blunder the Western Force have done with nobody at the ARU telling the Force to accept the offer from Gallop. The Force rejected this despite my advice to them to accept it. I spent 30 mins pleading with Baddeley to accept the offer).

ARU chief John O'Neill has urged the WA Government to honour the deal.

"If you look around Australia, the successful franchises in rugby union, rugby league and soccer have dedicated, purpose-built stadiums," he told the West Australian.


"I'd be greatly comforted if the WA Government would deliver that outcome for the Force. The ARU's commitment to Perth is unambiguous. It was the correct decision to give Perth a team, and they have shown the potential of rugby in WA. Any suggestion we would willingly move the team from Perth to Melbourne is ludicrous. However, we've got to get the Force back in the black as soon as possible. The ARU is not a lender of last resort." - SMH TAKE NOTE, ARU don't want to move from Perth, NO RISK OF FOLDING!!!!!!

double that 75m and you have a tasty new 25-30k RP stadium ready to expand for WC games....with the off set of the sale of MES for mixed use development could be worth going for (provided the state govt comes to the party with some land for it, but there has to be plenty of crown land available.)


You know nothing about the Perth situation do you . :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nines touched me in a bad place......make him stop.

I could be on my way to Wellington or Hamilton if the Force continue their form. Or there is still a possibility for a Force home final as well. :lol:

Have they accounced any potential locations for the new super franchise??
I've heard mention of both Melbourne and Goldcoast and hope they don't go with the GC option. The region IMO wouldn't be able to support it. Are there any other serious competitiors to melbourne?
