thats how it use to be, each union negotiated their tv deal and then it all went into a common pool, and that was part of the idea that it was one comp...but now NZR is saying we want to dominate and have all the money we bring...which is fair enough if we're actually willing to let them go when theyve had enoughA bit of common sense that is frankly an embarrassment for the Aus union.
Dave Rennie believes facing New Zealand sides is vital for his players' development and urged Australian officials not to abandon Super Rugby Pacific.www.planetrugby.com
Surely if the issue is TV money then that is a reflection on the ineptitude of the Aus union? The NZ union won't have been central to money negotiations between the Aus union and broadcasters will it? Is the Aus union suggesting the NZ union should be a charity that exists to subsidise the Aus union?
this is where i think we're getting it wrong, we're like the rich kid that got the video game no one else had....and got good at it because we play it more than everyone else...and are now shitty the other kids dont want to play with us
if we want to be able to keep playing rugby with the rest of the kids...we're going to have to stop rubbing the fact we're awesome in everyones faces...or they'll just go play the sports theyre good at....or we need to accept we'll have the NPC like aussie has the AFL....we're great but no one else plays it
we cant have it both ways
