Great to see how many people do care and recognise the injustice done to the Force. Let's hope it can help us transition successfully to a new competition.
    I've had that on several occasions since the ARU first announced they were going to wind us up in August. Even my neighbors who are AFL people and don't know much about Rugby are outraged at the ARU.

    So I am guessing there will be no more court action? Twiggy mentioned a High Court appeal, but the fact that staff are now being sacked makes me think no...

    Just hit Ceduna and have had Force gear on since we left on Saturday. Positive comments all the way across from complete strangers. Our story is well know!

    BTW - 105 for the Nullarbor Links, sensational way to do the crossing if you get a chance

    I really wish they would go on with, but I suppose they are thinking why throw good money after bad. It's a shame though, come February next year, to have no Force games to look forward to.

    Rumour, gossip and hearsay

    This past few weeks I've had conversations with links in Sydney who include old rugby mates from the North Shore. They are still involved in Club Rugby, a couple have involvement with the NSWRU and none of them are friends of the "St Leonards Rodeo", although they do talk to people in the ARU sometimes.
    Comments made:
    1. There are people in NSW rugby circles who are dismayed by the way that the ARU has handled the culling of the Western Force - unfair, insensitive, unnecessarily confrontational, vindictive, etc.
    2. The ARU was focussed only on removing the Force, no thought or planning was given to what happens to rugby in WA after the Force is gone.
    3. A couple said the ARU's present cuddling up to Twiggy Forrest over the IPRC is a diversionary tactic by the ARU. The IPRC won't go anywhere with the current ARU. Expected outcome is both parties walking away and accusing the other of bad faith and of not compromising. The ARU is worth bugger all, said one mate - Twiggy should buy it.

    All of the above is rumour and gossip.

    A side comment by one of them who does business in QLD - the Queenslanders are totally pissed off with the ARU over the Genia episode.

    Point No. 2 is becoming more glaringly obvious by the day. And it doesn't just apply to WA. They gave no thought as to how 5 goes into 4 player-wise. By creaming off our best players, each 'creamer' was bound to end up with a higher salary bill as cheaper guys would make way for the better guys. Surely that's how the standard is supposed to improve, no?! Yet the ARU appears not to have factored that in anywhere.

    Re Genia - are they pissed off because they couldn't get him back to the Reds or that he's back at all??

    I may be wrong...but I highly doubt it, because I'm an Alison

    I would imagine the Qld Reds expected to be able to sign Genia and have the ARU foot the bill once they told them they couldn't afford to actually pay him themselves.
