    Let the Whining Begin. ;)

    RA set to fund Western Force[
    Rugby Australia is set to agree to the Western Force's request for an equal share of broadcast revenue in next year's Super Rugby AU competition in a sign the club is back for the long haul.

    Exactly. I'd always hoped AF would insist on it. But that, very obviously from press coverage at least, has not been the view over your way. I'll be surprised if we don't hear rumblings about wanting a level playing field when we start winning like I think we will.

    Really annoying how these journos keep pushing this BS ..........who were sensationally cut from Super Rugby in 2017 by the Australian Rugby Union due to financial pressures, ....Somehow they always fail to mention the millions handed over to the Rebels. Sharing the broadcast revenue with the Force must really stick in Clark’s craw - hopefully.

    And yet - Its Clark that is giving the Force a fair share of the Broadcast Dollars.

    Take off the Blue shades. Join the real world and accept that Clark and the RA are trying to fix past mistakes, and are starting to do a good job of it.

    A strong Waratahs puts 30,000+ bums on seats at each home game. Fills the stadium at Test Matches and puts up numbers on Ratings in "the biggest market in Australia"

    That means dollars in the pocket of RA.

    It all makes sense.

    You have got to be f@cking joking! We've had to swallow that shit and they've had the inside run with contracting and such for decades and are still a joke with the Second worst supporters in the country. I'm amazed that anyone thinks more similar thinking will change anything.

    I offered an explanation for the quote.

    When the Tahs won had the Grand Final they almost filled ANZ Stadium.

    And it was a RA wet dream.

    Perhaps you should consider counseling. It will help.
