Just watched TV news – would appear Canterbury, despite being successful are also suffering in a similar way to the ORFU – when will people realise that it is about how boring rugby is, not success, not lack of parochial spirit, but that rugby just isn’t our lives anymore if it ever was.
Dear Mr Reid and Mr Palenski, now that ORFU is a ratepayer subsidised professional sport would you please enlighten your compulsory supporters as to why you believe it is the recession and your players that are to blame for the result. I note that in a similar vein your northern neighbours are also in strife – bad season ticket sales, low turnout yet their team has performed admirably. Do we likewise need super hero cartoon characters larger than life too, then please get Tremain on the case. But maybe it is something else. Maybe like gladiatorial sports, rugby has had its day. Or shall we next blame the referees – especially those from England, or waitresses called Suzie…..
Dear Messrs Reid and Palenski, I somehow think Tremain might be a bit too sharp for you guys, but don’t shoot the messenger!…..
