    Ok, in case you guys haven't heard, there's a thing on the internet called My Football Club, where a bunch of people payed £35 to be a partial owner of a football team. www.myfootballclub.co.uk

    Anywho, I was thinking that this would translate well for rugby. There is a thing called Our Rugby Club, but it's not really the same...

    If we could all pay £35 and own a rugby team, wouldn't that be awesome.

    Look at the credit crisis at the moment and tell me who's about to benefit more, the clubs in the North, or the NZ Super 14 teams run by the NZRU?

    I'd love to own a rugby team, but I think it's better when they're run by their unions.

    The Green Bay Packers are owned by the residents of Green Bay...

    Bullshit. Union owned franchises are a smack in the face to all except the corperate sponsoring elite.

    The team who is the flagship for this, is actually my town's footy team, Ebbsfleet United. It is a very good idea IMHO.
