Now come on Grinder...are you really that naïve ?
You know I'm not that naive and have some real concerns. Do you think that Abramovich (who is also very much a business man) will make a profit at Chelsea, if not why is he investing so much money, surly it has to be kudos? And if that is the case then why couldn't FN do it on a smaller scale in Rugby League?
However I am at a loss to explain FN interest in Fev if it isn't kudos. Yes the club has some land so maybe FN wants the club to fail and then take the land for himself (which is what has been suggested above). Fev have tried to get planning permision on this same land, but failed because it is on greenbelt land. On top of this, the way the limited company is set up makes it difficult to do anything with the land without the majority of share holders allowing it (in a one man one vote situation).
Likewise if he was looking at getting anything back from his investment why did he get involved with a number of county cricket teams, the C*s and Fax in rugby league before settling on Fev? All of which would never give him a return?
At the end of the day, as has been said above, he is a business man and therefore you have to assume that he has gone into all these relationships understaning what he is likely to get out of it (nothing money wise). And if that is the case what is in the relasionship other than Kudos?
I'm sure I'll think of something funny to say soon.
