    Interesting that the article from Nick suggests that there are parties interested in naming right sponsorship.
    Add that in to getting 5000 fans buying in and things are looking good.

    BUT we, the fans,need to sell this and sell this hard. Don't assume people have heard about this.
    Sell it!
    Put it on Facebook. Tweet it! Tell friends. Post it on bulletin boards. Tell everyone until people are sick of hearing about it and then tell them again.
    Lets get 10000 people signing up. Or more.

    I may have jumped in to soon..... after putting in some serious thought about our household budget we had a family financial discussion....

    There was robust debate, budget realignment strategy & a lot of tears....

    Obviously the kids weren't happy with Christmas being cancelled. But rugby comes first & we're 100% in!!!

Without getting into the politics that this may entail, it would truly mean that the Force is owned by all of the rugby community in WA
    Technically the clubs already own the Force. The clubs are the shareholders of Rugbywa who in turn own the Force, irrespective of any alliance with the aru.

    Anyway no one should panic, the decision has been made (but yet to be announced) that 1 team will go and it won't be the Force. Can't say any more at this stage without betraying a confidence. The extra fund raising initiatives won't hurt the balance sheet though.

    Even if the Force were not in dire straights or threatened with termination i would be all over this initiative like white on rice!

    Don't know what your sauces are but one scenario I hear is a merger of clubs - how can they merge us with an E. States club. See where I'm heading.
    Have a read of the earlier post about Canberra too

    I like your way of thinking

    I also heard a rumour of merging. But, between the Brumbies & the Rebels

    Of course you bloody can. You can just say who's getting the chop or who's being merged. Simple. No need to tell anyone who your sauce is.

    Otherwise it just sounds like bullshit. If it not bullshit you've already betrayed a confidence. May as well go the whole hog.

    That'd be common sense though.
    Gtfo of Canberra. Train in melb where they are better supported with infustructure & only return to the land of liars for a few games a year.

    Came across this from 2 years ago. Lets hope they are revisiting some kind of eastern states merger. It
    would make a lot of sense
