    I don't understand....

    I dont understand...

    ... How a Governing body charged with the growth of the game is comfortable in the "killing off" of a team?

    ... How a professional organisation can sign an agreement and within 6 months of signing forget what provisions they agreed too.

    ... How a Thermos can keep hot things hot and cold things cold.

    ... How a professional competition such as the Shute Shield can be considered "Grass Roots"

    ... How CEO Bill Pulver can announce that if he is asked to leave, he will. Is still in office.

    How the union with the third highest participation numbers can be assessed as not "growing the game"?

    ... How Andrew Cox can ask for $5-$7 Million Dollars for the Melbourne Rebels when it didn't cost him a cent to begin with, nothing like making a $5-$7 Million dollar profit.

    To quote Mr PT Barnum, the celebrated circus impressario, in his discourse on the subject of suckers, "There's one born every minute".

    And to paraphrase Mr Kerry Packer, "You only get an ARU once in a lifetime, and I've had mine."

    Because someone at the ARU obviously wrote certain clauses in the contract etc etc?
