    Are we forgetting that the players are prohibited from taking any form of industrial action under their current CBA?

    The question is how? Public humiliation, disruption, a moments silence, walking out - who knows. We won't get a better chance.

    To date we have been vocal and reasonable. Anyone interested in turning up the heat?

    Count me in - these might be the last two games we ever have in the West - let us not die quietly

    A couple of years ago I saw something at NIB that I think we should recreate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUtJ2Wacf6Q

    If this doesn't justify why the Force should be prioritised ahead of the Rebels, I don't know what will.

    I agree. We need to motivate a massive crowd and show our support.

    I have heard this so often but the thing is, back before huge union power the only kind of action was illegal action. Or else we would all be working in bloody coal mills from the age of 6 onwards.

    The ARU have proven they aren't fit to rule, so let's bloody get em! Can't be sued by a body that has been disbanded through its own ineptitude/crippling legal actions from broadcasters/teams.

    I think as it effects all players of both teams that they should show a sign of unity before and after the game (in between, they both put their heart and souls into the match, of course)

    On the fan side of things strongerasfive, FUARU, maps of Australia, can't think of the figures but Tahs+Reds+Brums V Force+Rebs ARU top up $$$

    Just some ideas

    With how we are running "i am the force"

    Maybe "we are rugby" for both fans to hold and if you are social media technical selfies of Force and Rebs supporters holding the sign up between them

    Stronger as five

    20,000 punters in the stands wearing FUARU t shirts would be impressive. Foxtel wouldn't know where to point their cameras.

    That's what I was thinking a big crowd would definitely be good. How about standing ovation for a couple of minutes when teams come out? Boring I know but I'm not very imaginative and it might be possible to get the Force involved?
