Don’t get me wrong I hope it is not on the cards. I would find it hard to be attached to a team over team. However i would still follow them if they were called Wests Tigers. Im not advocating the move mearly raising the fact the NRL and any potential board, CEO might see it is a sensible move.
I just wonder we always seem to be struggling. 15 years and only a few have come good.
- No money
- Balmain is broke., Ctwn doesnt follow the team
- run down grounds and training base
- Can’t attract players
- Struggling for sponsors
- Dwindling fan base
- Dwindling crowds
I know the wheel can turn and clubs have their ups and downs. However with the jam packed sydney market we seem to be always just making up the numbers. Someone will eventually get squeezed out and maybe the club that makes the move will benefit who knows.
We go to Perth, keep the same name and get the money and the sponsors rolling in. Some fans would stick tight (maybe i dunno?) and you would have a whole new base base over there.
I expect to be shot down, but maybe it is a sensible option if we continue to be a basket case and a poor struggler on and off the pitch.
