Reports have surfaced over last day or so about self-reported issues with the Sharkies Salary Cap. Interestingly their ‘self-reporting’ says the problems were for 2015 AND 2017, and not this year, OR FOR THEIR PREMIERSHIP WINNING 2016!!! A bit serendipitous for this little black duck!
Strip them of their premiership
bit like tellin the missus you only had two beers round the pub ain’t it?
What’s the saying “cash is king” that is why you will never ping the roosters…
They are the gift that keeps on giving this year. Salary Cap issues, best player walks out, coach deregistered, entire playing group banned from a local establishment, and we still have 2 months for them to amuse us again. Maybe my dream of them relocating is closer than I think
Up Up Caloundra
No major sponsor again as well.
Surely their time as a club is numbered. I for one would not shed a tear.
The NRL has to be considering their options here. Maybe even a takeover of the clubs licence. Even with the development, they are going to struggle considering the massive debt hole they have made. I dare say their days are numbered.
Maybe even “Up Up Kalgoorlie”
I suggested Caloundra for a few reasons:
- Starts & finishes with the same letters as Cronulla
- Same number of syllables as Cronulla
- Seamless transition for the club song
- Similar area to where they are now
- They have had strong links to Queensland for some time
It’s almost too perfect
I don’t think they would relocate the Sharks anyway. If anything were to happen I would imaging the NRL Licence will be stripped and they would be offered a place in the NSW Competition and the license assigned to a new club (my guess would be Perth).
This would be follow with a 2 team expansion outlined in a new TV deal.
The ‘shire’ deserve a club in the big league but serial offenders
need to get their house in order or suffer the consequences.
I won’t lose any sleep regardless of NRL action, if any !!!
Agree Puss, enough is enough !
