I agree wholeheartedly BUT if the sale is executed, then the reasons for it need to be looked at to see if there are positives. The RU club could of course just shut down the RL club to eliminate competition. On the other hand maybe the owner sees an opportunity to maximise use of his stadium and enhance his revenues.

 

The devil is in the details and true intent and reason for the takeover.

 

What are your thoughts on the reasons for the purchase ?

The supporters could simply start a new club like they did last time. I don't think anyone is trying to buy a RL club to shut it down.

Im not a Union Fan....it has bored me since Union Sides with the Nazi's in France in world war two.

 

 

Bloomin' 'eck!  A bit of a simplification and generalisation there.

Union isn't League's "rival" nor visa versa either......and if you're going to compare them (as business models) then it's more like Coca Cola buying happy shopper cola...... :tongue:

Are you still going to pretend you're just sticking up for rugby union like on the other site? Because this one is a pretty unprovoked trolling effort that's shown you up for what you really are.
