    Australian Rugby / RA

    I did not know the following [the bold bit is interesting, and I wonder who pays] but leaving aside the question of who pays. This is if nothing else brave, I guess the reason is so they have control over who they sell to at what price. Could or should rugby do the same. The NFL [gridiron] in...

    Adam No doubt you were a fan of the No Body Really Cares competitions. Both failed badly. IMO they failed because of a lack of support from all rugby stakeholders. What happen the guys in charge from start to finish developed it in six months or less. That's why it failed huge assumptions...
