Well said. Some people are so consumed in their own ideals that they don't see the illogic in their requests. It's particularly said when they will dump all over the proposed project because it's not what they would do with their money, even though that isn't an option.
To adress your points.
1. I agree that going 4 weeks without a game can cause a vacuum. They will need to be pretty creative to keep the enthusiasm going. Maybe their local comp can be played and promoted over these weekends.
2. So you an expert on the level of the local RU game in Canada? Are teams in the local comp better than the likes of Donny, Newcastle, Hunslet, York on skills, stamina, creativity etc.
3. I maynot be a marketing guru but I would offer this advice to the group behind the bid. DO not promote the Donny team as being full of plumbers and sparkies that only play the game for a bit of tun. Promote them as semi professional players that maybe stars of the future.
And to those who feel they are more qualified than the Rothschilds in offering advice as to how these bidders should spend their money, it reminds of my time working for Wakey Met. The Council would be succesful in attracting funding for specific physical regeneration projects. Our team would go out to the community with artist skectches, plans, designs to show the community what may be built. Many in the community would just say 'The money should go on filling in potholes'. We tried to explain that the money was for a specific project, not potholes, but they never understood that. Just like some on here.
