    not to toot my own horn here, or understate/overstate this. But thinking about it a bit more than just an off the cuff comment; a large (dare i say majority) number of force jerseys & some banners in the crowd as opposed to wallabies ones would send a message on quite frankly an international level.

    I really think as opposed to a boycott, anyone able to go should get down to the game in their force gear, and badger (yeah even him, i know he's lurking here somewhere!) their mates and family to get themselves there in blue as well.

    I think we've just found ourselves our next "save the Force" initiative! Get down to the Wallabies v Fiji game in our Force gear! May even resurrect my "Don't Force us Out, ARU" banner for the occasion!

    BUT only if the Force are still around then. They can get lost if we've gone by then!

    I got the fixture wrong - it's Wallabies v SA here at NIB.

    I would rather wait to see what Hansie/General have to say on the matter.

    Would be silly to boycott a match if we are passing on the hurt to RugbyWA rather then the ARU.

    As Jono and now Hertyk will attest, Tattoos are not always a great idea.

    I'm in the minority, but I won't boycott. I enjoy the sport far too much and want to see it played at the highest level. This sport is bigger than the ARU. And it may take 5, 10, 20 years to fix, but they won't kill it. Most of you were here and enjoyed rugby even before the Force came to be. I'm not saying that it wouldn't suck to lose the Force, I'm just saying that I wouldn't let one governing body keep me from being a fan of rugby.

    I will decrease my spending (e.g. no new gear, eat before the match, etc).

    And I will probably be there in my Force gear even if they are not around.

    I happen to like mine, and I raised money for charity getting it done.. but I will do my small part to show my boycott of the ARU and Wallaby reference...
