well that is it, the NRL has been suspended and many of us on here who have followed this game for many years…in my case going back to the 60’s this is a little surreal and hard to fully process
I am in shock the NRL do not have the money to withstand this invisible enemy and the damage will be enormous across all involved in the game from the cheerleaders through to players, let alone those poor folks who Panthers have and will have to let go who work at the Club
Its hard to even make a comment because we have nothing at all to compare it with and the enormity of the impact across our broader community will be terrible with many who will not be able to cope with what is ahead
My heart goes out to everyone and its not time for incriminations and placing blame about the game but when the dust settles and we emerge from this fog, i urge everyone to demand we do things differently for the good of the game and our country.
A $2 billion contract and the NRL have ZIP to show for this and even if we has a war chest, maybe we couldn’t face what is coming but it would surely ensure we have something when we emerge.
Again take care to the few but spirited and keen posters on this site, your comments, reviews, opinions and reviews of the game have been a revelation to me in as much so few can be so passionate and hold the Panthers as i do…#1
But its now time for all of us to focus on what we can control and come out the other side of this, but again i urge who may join me when we emerge to agitate for a different way forward and what has happened in the past can no longer be the way forward.
Stay Safe and Take Care
