Tainui were too naive for that croak and his croaked mates. Seems tainui have lived and learned and doin a billion odd better thanks. As they say, where there's a lowie there's a debt (somebody else's of course) a mortgage free home and a pokie machine. Oh hang on, is that his mate? Oh no that's right ARL/nzrl (previous) - they're all the same. By the way, inc societies can't give members any profits by law I believe(some lawyer can verify) I could be wrong. They can spend it as they see fit however. Fun future to watch where the money goes aye. So that's my historical b n moan. Nzrl should get a boost - maybe it'll be the warriors playing in the USA. The games more fun than the admin crap.Maybe this is Eric Watson's master plan, to allow the Fans to buy the club at a discount,,,, (just like he did) after Lowe and his buds fuck it up again.
Wishful thinking I know.
Edit: Don't know why this has been moved from off topic days later mods.
