    If there is any axing to be done it should start with Todd Greenberg, beattie has already jumped ship after his debacle as chairman. Time for you to go Greenberg you and your cronies have ruined our game

    Last week Weisler wrote an article about tv ratings plummeting, this week that channel 9 (owners of SMH and Weisler's employer) want teams moved to ensure better tv ratings.
    It's just a beat up by the channel 9 conglomerate to attempt to pay less for the broadcast rights in the future.
    Interestingly, Peter V'Landys who some suggest will replace Beattie as chairman of the IC has strong relationships with Channel 7 thru his racing contacts...
    If Channel 9 lose the rugby league they'll have nothing left.

    As much as I hate the cheating Sharts and Manly, it seems like a piss poor idea to axe any team that's been around for the best part of a century in order to hopefully get an intercity rivalry going.

    Basically let's piss off up to 30,000-40,0000 fans by killing off their club in hopes of diluting the fan base in Brisbane to create rivalry there. We can already see that you can't just implant a team somewhere and expect the fans to flock to them with the Titans experiment as well as the rams etc.

    If they wanted to set up a second tier competition and have the wooden spooner from the NRL demote with the second tier premiership winner promoting it might go down better. But they'd have to invest heavily in this as opposed to thinking that ousting a team would be a moneymaker.

    CQ is where they need another club.
    Fuck Brisbane, they won’t get the support that Broncs get. Broncs don’t want it either they now get the 3rd party monopoly, this way that might be evenly spread.

    Sterling is about the only good one, Johns to some extent.

    Matt Thompson, Slater, Thaiday and similar types are terrible. Even Thurston to some extent, a champion player doesn't automatically make a great media personality.

    I'm not taking this story real serious but I'm surprised they're talking about axing a team, as opposed to relocating them. Anyhows, do we really need Crushers 2.0 ?

    Yeah lost me at Broadcater's director. Any of this stuff has to be about the sport as a whole and not about the ratings vulchers. They can fuk off!

    Slater is a good commentator imo. Less is more and he doesn't overplay his hand

    Greenberg wouldn’t have the balls to piss off that many fans.

    Scrapping or relocating a Sydney team would be his deathnell, the papers would smash him

    In an ideal world you’d cut two Sydney teams and create another club in QLD and one in Perth. Will never happen though.

    A team in Perth isn’t easy though, a lot of people live and breath AFL and so any team set up there would need some early success to get the people behind them. Not to mention the distance, takes 5 hours to get from Sydney to Perth.

    He needn't worry...We'll give him a job at Belmore...Toilet cleaning :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:
    Isn't it weird, I posted something like this earlier Today.
    I have been saying it for years...9 Network & News Ltd run the game and people in charge at the NRL they are nothing but useless bunch of puppets !!!

    Hopefully their not thinking of the
    "Brisbane Bulldogs"

    I do like the sound of the
    "North Brisbane Bears"

    Or maybe just the
    "South Queensland Titans"
    With most home games in Brisbane & a few at Robina.
    Add alot of Maroon to their jumper & get XXXX as their main sponser.

    Whoever decided to name them the Titans & chose the colours needs a good flogging.
