    EMIRATES WESTERN FORCE APPEAL TO PUBLIC FOR INFORMATION ON STOLEN ANALYSIS LAPTOP

    Emirates Western Force management are appealing for information in relation to a stolen laptop computer containing vital analysis software.

    The computer was stolen from the vehicle of a member of team management at approximately 8.15pm-8.30pm from the City Beach car park on Wednesday night (21 Jan).

    The staff member said the laptop is useless to a regular user.

    “The laptop that was stolen is of great use to the Western Force as it is the main laptop used for the analysis of our performance,” said the staff member.

    “It has some very rugby specific software loaded on it which would be useless to anybody else who had possession of it but is crucial to us,” he said.

    “It contains a lot of historical video footage that would require a lot of man hours to replace.”

    The laptop is of very distinct appearance as it is a 3-year-old Pioneer computer with a 17” wide screen and weighs approximately 5kg (with a black plastic base and shiny aluminium lid).

    When taken the laptop was contained in a black backpack with wheels (known as a DragBag) and had various other items in with it, such as a ‘Pinnacle’ video capture device.

    Anyone with information is urged to contact RugbyWA on (08) 9387-0700. A reward will be offered with the safe return of the equipment.

    Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    More Drama for the Force

    As if we did not have enough problems off field to contend with, one of the "support" staff has gone and had a computer with vital information on it stolen.

    Teams "Holy Grail" stolen from the Force

    Don't they have back up? This is probably a cheap way of trying to get back a stolen run of the mill laptop.

    Well whoever stole it better be carefull, there are now alot of people looking for them.

    I'm sure the Force have backup copies of everything, if the information is that important to them they wouldn't of just kept it all on one laptop.

    I love it how the missing laptop is also to blame for the possible departure of Gits at the end of the season and john Mitchell's troubles.

    Maybe this should be placed in a new thread Stuff we can blame on the force's stolen laptop

    The lap top was 3rd party sponsorship from Pioneer. We have no money anymore since Firepower left so Giteau and Mitchell had to share it. All of the fighting between Giteau and Mitchell is because Mitch has a faster time on Mine Sweeper. And now we're really screwed because even thats gone.

    If the Western Force need copies of all their games, they should give us shout - I'm sure between us we have 'backups' of every single match they've played...

    It looks a bit Toshiba-ish, and Rock is it's won brand (or re-badge) of laptop. Maybe Toshiba allow Pioneer to use their hardware, who in turn allow Rock to do so too?

    Hey Coach, maybe you should offer them some back-up space for a nominal running fee (and access for us)?
