Does put things into perspective a bit - although not quite the same thing.
Heineken, how you feel if four weeks into the next Super XV season, without saying a word to the fans, the Bulls announced that they'd had a far better commercial offer to play in Kimberley instead of Pretoria and would be moving there in a month?
I feel that is a comparable hypothetical scenario.
Lol, come now, use an example more in perspective. It would be unfair to compare a move from Pretoria to Kimberley, with a move from London to Coventry. Kimberley is more than 1000km's away from Pretoria.
If the Bulls had to move away from Loftus, because it's a better commercial offer, then so be it. It's a company and their aim is to make a profit and make sound financial decisions. Because I'm a passionate Blue Bulls supporter I'd still go and watch them no matter where they will be based.
My tongue in cheek comment was just to point out that 70 miles is not that big of a deal. it's an extra hour out of your way to the game. Do what I do, put in some amped up music in your car, and play it loud all the way to the stadium.
