    Hear what you are saying, but, well...there was that time they had to sell the license....

    That certainly would have had a hell of an impact on how the last 12 months would have played out. I hope you are right, but in practice I guess only he knows what he meant. We'll see I suppose.

    I got bored - did some research. Google and Wikipedia are my friends.

    Wikipedia told me "Forrest was educated at Onslow Primary School[10] and through the School of the Air before moving to Perth to attend Christ Church Grammar School and then Hale School.[16] He stuttered as a child,[10] which is how he came to develop a relationship with Ian Black, whose father Scotty, an Aboriginal,[17] became Forrest's mentor. Forrest went on to the University of Western Australia[18] where he majored in economics and politics.[19]"

    So I then searched Hale School Year Book for 1979 and found this

    Sinderberry has said twiggy has been involved in the background. Maybe after such a special game and performance they decided to reveal his involvement? Or
    He was waiting to see that the Force could turn it around on and off field as a good businessman would
    or
    He enjoyed one too many full strengths in the corporate box and got carried away .

    He won't be backing out of any drunken pronouncements now that it's been reported in every paper in Oz.

    And besides, Coronas was all Westie could afford after his run of bad luck on the g-gees.

    What a TOP article-well written! And good to see that he's not going to just be handing out the dough. The community still need to prove the stand and buy the shares. So Buy those bloody Stickers people-no slacking!

    So, Sonny Bono coached the 1979 Hale First XV! Who knew?

    The knock on effect of Twiggy's speech on Saturday has been huge, if nothing else it has put us in the spotlight.

    On Sunday night I had a call from my father in South Africa asking who was that man and what was happening at the end of the game.

    Yesterday I was wearing a Force shirt at the gym and someone said I see Twiggy is getting behind you and by the way where are the Western Force Based. He did not know much about us but knew Twiggy was getting behind us, you just cannot buy that kind of publicity.

    Last night on 6PR sports Tony Horwarth, who was interviewed in the light of Twiggy's speech, intimated that Twiggy has been hovering in the background for a while supporting us, and felt it was now time to approach the ARU to get a constructive outcome rather than a destructive outcome out current events.
