Did anyone else here a woman ring Talkin Sport over the weekend with talk of leaving a large sum of money to the Tigers?
It was around the time of the Humphries interview. Not sure if before or I think about 1/2 hour after.
She was claiming to be coming out publically in response to speculation over the tigers financial state and that there was no rorting and she is the one that has pumped up the clubs finances by donanting her life savings to the club.
She said it was meant to be a rpivate matter bewtwen her and the club and considering she is not married, has no children and she considers the Tigers as part of her family, she decided to leave everything to the club. She is sufferring with terminal emphasima and has been knocked about recently by the swine flu.
She seemed to be very flustered and probably didn’t relate the relevance of the salary cap in securing players, even if the club has a bottomless flow of money. No talk of the dollar amount and she was reluctant when asked who she had dealt with at the club, but in the end said it could be confirmed through Hunphries.
The boys on talkin sport didn’t really know what to say and I’m sure they had the Cronulla affair in mind when she spoke about the money.
Does this sound a bit fishy or is the lack of any public knowledge only at her request. As far as I know any donations to the club is permitted as long as its through the business and logged in their books.
Certainly an interesting call and something I’d like to hear more about though. My guess is if true (which I can’t see any reason to doubt her) it may have something to do with the rumoured addition of home games as the SFS and ANZ payouts may not be so crucial. I think we get about 100K for each game there. Even a 200K donation would cover a game each at Leichardt and Campbo…… That could be the difference in making the finals and ultimately a grand final.
I dont know who she is but id sure like to get to know her…

Was she talking about the leagues club or the football club? It’s Balmain leagues that was in financial bother…
