    What the FUARU has done to me!

    I wrote this last night on Facebook after a few glasses of red and still feel the same today.

    I canít believe it! When I arrived in Australia nearly 15 years ago the first thing I did was get FOXTEL installed so I could watch rugby in WA.
    As a Pom arriving in Australia one would have thought it would take years to change a national allegiance, but NO! WA had Super Rugby! The WESTERN FORCE!!!!
    The day that England played a Wallabies team with Sharpie, Gits, and others was the conversion! I AM AUSSIE! For 12 years I have been an ardent and consistent fan of Australian rugby UNTIL NOW!!!!
    The RA formerly known as the FUARU have robbed me of the only sport Iíve ever loved!
    At this moment in time I am sitting with a blank screen! Why? Because I donít care!
    RA what did you want to do to us?
    The team that came second in the AU conference and cost you less than than any other team, is the one that you should cull because the savings will be greater!
    Mr Clyne, Mr Pulver. Someone called you slime, I noticed that you havenít refuted this!
    Under normal circumstances I would be watching the rugby cheering in the Wallabies but now the tv is off!
    PS FOXTEL are one of your sponsors!

    Have to admit, i was flicking through channels last night after watching a movie and dropped onto SBS at about the 15 minute mark. Watched about a minute before realising that I gave precisely zero fucks and flicked on to another channel. Never used to miss a game...

    Hooper, Beale and Cheika's behaviour is reflection of the people who employee them.

    Ditto to all the above. I was actually cheering for England and hoping Pulver was squirming all the way home in his first class seat.

    And weren't the Wallabies supposed to be better with only four sides?

    Its got the feeling of "you can only take it for so long".

    There was a corporate box behind my seat at NIB for the Force Games. I overheard them half way through the season discussing along the lines of "its hard to watch the team lose, but they keep trying, but when dodgy ref decisions and match officials determining the outcome of a game with soft yellow cards...thats it" ..for the last few games of the season the box was empty.

    Ditto , in fact I am pleased that England won. I am no longer a supporter of FUARU and now have a new team in the Pro14, Glasgow Warriors. The FUARU will never gent another cent from me and I have been a Wallabies supporter since my teenage years.

    My sentiments exactly!

    I didnít watch the game but saw the clip of Cheika walking out of that press interview. Hearing him condescendingly use the words ďmy dearĒ to the female reporter was bad enough but his childish, unprofessional petulance was the icing. Heís a thug. An ignorant and ill-manned thug who is simply underlining why some foreigners regard Australians as rough diamonds.

    Squirming all the way home, with the sound of 80,000 England fans belting out the words to ďSwing Low Sweet ChariotĒ ringing in his scumbag ears!!

    For anyone that bothered to watch, was there any footage of DeClyne, Puller, Eels and co in a box sipping RA funded Champers?

    Cheika is not a rough diamond, rough diamonds are still diamonds. He's coal.... No scratch that coal is useful for powering outdated polluting power plants, he's shit (shit is carbon-based isn't it?
