    Start of SR 2018 without the Force

    Just sent this to the Roar on a preview article about when the season starts. Basically pushing aside what happened to the force and letís get on with the game clap-trap.

    Hollow itís empty! It continues to hurt as a Force fan. RA have made this game toxic for us in the west. Until we feel represented the anguish and anger can not be dampened at the removal of our beloved team and today when it all starts in Aus is probably the hardest pill to swallow.

    Success is not just measured by wins if crowds do not turn up through the season then SR in Aus has gained nothing from their ultracrepidarian decision to axe the Force. Quite the opposite they have alienated, polarised and discarded fans in an attempt to appease others. The sacrifice of the Force has been dirty and caused a lot of online aggression, baiting and unsavoury behaviour from supporters and trolls on both sides of the fence -it has been ugly.

    RA have handled the whole affair appallingly! They have made promises without substance to WA and the rest of Aus.They have rebuffed Twiggy at most turns and used throw away lines like it is all too late.

    There has never been transparency in the decision - far from it with a possible ASIC inquiry still to come.

    Enjoy your season everyone, but for Force fans like myself it will be empty other than watching the rerun of the last game in 2017.

    I will be surprised if the Roar publish it. That website is a Force free zone. Had nothing about IPRC, recent Force signings, ASIC investigation etc. etc.

    Which is why it needs to be posted here with a "I sent this to the Roar" added

    It's the only way it'll see the light of day, and also the only way that 90% of the readers here will see it even if it were published.

    I didn't even realise Super Rugby started this week.

    I've been chomping at the bit for the Charity Shield and a good lol@Souffs.

    Mark Geyer is predicting Saints got the "Buy of the Year" in James Graham. No stranger to the Red V is Jimmy either. I agree with MG - and so do the Canterbury voting members apparently.

    Rebels throwing cheap (also free) tickets around like lollies.

    All registered juniors in Vic, SA and Tas get a free season membership.

    And then of course, all members are assumed to have shown up when calculating the attendance....

    plus any entitlements, such as extra people on their cards. I suppose Foxtel people count towards attendance too.

    I agree with MG.

    Especially given he was replaced at the Bulldogs by Sharon Woods.
