No envy here at all, I just know whats coming your way in the future and the blinkered arrogance of some of your fans is utterly bewildering - the money man has a history of being shown the door by clubs once they have looked into his dealings and background, yet Featherstone have given him carte blanche to throw money about like confetti.
So far from being "inane" just concerned people like yourself are quite happy for your club to throw caution to the wind, knowing full well there could be massive repercussions down the line.
This is rugby league, not football, we arent big enough as a sport for money men to carry on like that.
Buford - What proof do you have that he was shown the door at the other clubs (C*s & Fax), is it not feasible that he walked because he did not see the ambition, ability within the BODs of both clubs to take them to another level at the time and choose to move on?
If you read the Fax forum there is a significant number of fans that do not believe their BOD have the ability to take them to the next level (Challenging for the top 2 this year and SL afterwards).
Now I am not saying that FN is squeaky clean in any of this or that we as Fev fans should not be concerned about where the ride is taking us, since if you talk to the majority of our fans we do have concerns. However at this point in time there is not a lot we can do about it, so will enjoy the money he puts in and enjoy the upward cycle for the minute (we have had plenty of downs over the years. As has been said above while MC stays involved I am sure he will not allow us to be overstretched.
However, A question for you "what do you think FN expects to get out of his interest in Fev"?
I'm sure I'll think of something funny to say soon.
