Well Folks the ARL / Super League War has taken another casualty.
The Rugby League site Rugby League from the Great South East at
and http://www.triser.com.au/league will no longer be available
thanks to the people from that famous street down south.
It appears that being independent and neutral was in their eyes worse
than being on the other side. I guess their opponents knew what they
were like, but I hoped that being on neither side I would be able to
maintain a neutral stand.
Having Played and followed Rugby League for over 30 years, the Owl,
Shadow and Myself feel some what betrayed by the tactics of some
people now in charge of some areas, and the way they have allowed
others schemes to rule, when it is "the Game", not personalities or
attitudes that should be taking preference.
I now feel that one side has major problems, and can no longer be
objective with respect to their side, particularly when they employ
tactics that leave one bewildered as to their true motives, desires,
Every one of the numerous league fans we have spoken to see League as
having "BIG" problems, and many state that this will be the last year
that they follow a code that wants to destroy itself by its attitude
towards the fans. AFL and Soccer have been successfully
converting many fans, and this will continue while the attitude of
some of the officials and clubs in NSW persist to divide the code.
I will now save hundreds of dollars in Web Fees, as well as Season
Tickets / Memorabilia Etc for myself and family. I may even go to the
Soccer/AFL/Rugby Union games a little more often now. Especially now
that I will have some extra dough "saved at the expense of Rugby
League". The estimated loss to league from friends and family who are
also fed up is about 100+ fans, so you can calculate the loss in
revenue for the game if you like, just from our immediate group.
Cheers and good luck to all,
See you at the Gabba, Ballymore, Etc.
