Fev make bid for Huddersfield Big 3

206 posts in this topic

I've had a good read of this thread and others on this forum and the thought flew in to my head again that I have absolutely no idea why anyone would ever want to invest a single penny in rugby league, they'll never get any thanks for it. I'm utterly convinced I could win £100m in the Euromillions jackpot, put £95m into developing rugby league and I'd still get people complaining that I was selfish for not sticking in the last £5m.

I think people would love your £95m ckn. The difference between you and Feisal is a, you would be putting your own money into the game (I'm not convinced FN has) and b, you have a good understanding of Rugby league.

In this case there is a lot of history.

 

Though you are right that any chance of a reconciliation is long gone if you read the comments on here or on twitter.  Lots of the haters were probably the same people having a go at anyone who suggested that Fev should be careful and defending him to the hilt only a few months ago.

I wouldn't say that having a good understanding of RL is crucial. Of course if you don't you need to at least have a passion for it and surround yourself with the right people.

 

I think the bigger thing is having the right intentions, and these have always appeared to be questionable with this bloke.

 

He appears to have promised three revolutions at three clubs, and none have followed.

Agreed Dave, sadly Nahaboo doesn't seem like the kind of bloke who will readily take advice from anyone.

It would therefore have been nice if he had an understanding of the game to give himself a fighting chance.

Obviously most of what has been written on these forums is pure guess work. I just have a terrible feeling the aftermath of FN could be a whole heap of trouble. Time will tell.

I really hope this news is true.

If so, it would appear he has taken his bat and ball home after not getting his own way again. Which club will he try and get his claws into next? I expect an announcement soon from his sidekick Poskitt to say he is leaving as well.

My main concern now is that the club has adequate provision to cover wages and contracts if Mr Nahaboo is not around. I hope the volunteers who are building the new stand have received the donation they were promised 6 weeks ago, although I am not holding my breath.

I believe Mr Nahaboo's finger prints were all over the removal of Daryl Powell. Sadly this decision has set the club back years but I sincerely hope the club can now move forward at a sustainable pace under Andy Hay.

The Fans Forum on Wednesday night should be an interesting meeting, whether Nahaboo has gone or not!

just to say dp was not removed! he told the board he would be leaving at end of season.reason,ask mc.
