    Yeah, read this earlier. Big fail. I can't see the Melbourn "Rebel" being able to be taken seriously with so little financial backing.

    Oh my word, we predicted the epic fail, but they haven't even played a single game and they're already knee deep in ****.

    :/

    Hopefully it dies, because it should have been Victorian Rebels or something, way to f*** up an Australian tradition of teams being the states, not a cities.

    :lol: whats with your constant negativity towards Australian rugby now? Jumped on the league bandwagon

    Sounds like something for the media to whip up in summer when there's nothing to talk about.

    I can't see this team getting on well when they start playing. There's been so much bickering and infighting that it smacks of the 01' and 05' Lions. Add that to the fact that they'll be hard pressed to assemble a decent squad and the future already looks bleak for Melbourne.

    I can't believe people fall for these kinds of stories so easily...

    It's quite clearly a media beat up with nothing else to report on in the off-season...

    The story is obviously the result of ONE disenchanted backer who has gone to the media to air his grievances...

    The ARU are still working on a deal with investors...

    Stories like this serve nothing more than to help fuel those idiots who want to take an quick swipe at Australian rugby... :rolleyes:
