Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

All a bit of a conundrum. Is it probable that Premiership Rugby does not have the financial resources of a very wealthy owner in order to enter into litigation? If this is the case then effectively the cap is unenforceable for all clubs and hence pointless.

All the best Greg. Thanks for the enjoyment of watching you play and that try against Quins that had me smiling for a week.

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

An individual enthusiast with private wealth would probably be less inclined to seek a return than corporate investment as long as they feel they are getting value and or enjoyment for their cash. As speculated by others what happens when they loose interest is the concern. Whatever happens it would...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Tigers is now, since CVC deal debt free, still has loyal support and is a respected brand. A good time for any investor to sale before another miserable season starts to add debt and decrease brand status and value. Clearly the investors have little faith in the prospects for the team and hence the ...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Well we could limp along as a bottom half of the table team and watch the support slowly drift away or do something radical. :censored: or bust time.

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Tigers management and board confuses me. Tom Scott is a non-executive director (Non-executive directors provide independent oversight and serve on committees concerned with sensitive issues such as the pay of the executive directors and other senior managers). How can the major shareholder provide i...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

There are lots of reasons for selling a business. Being a major shareholder and not being able to shift an incompetent board might be a good reason to pull out.

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Just had another thought - we are employing/paying another consultancy firm Zero Capital to find us a buyer or should I say " run a formal sales process". Will we take any notice of them and just wait for someone to knock on the front door and say can we buy you?? Lightning can strike twice - No up...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Current funding model can't compete as we have seen for 5 or more years. Governing body out-lawyered by wealthy owners so salary cap is a joke. Feels like the end of an era coming on.

So, being cleared in court means nothing? Trial by media is all?

Next season

Currently we don't know the final coaching and squad make up and I have no lofty expectations for the coming season. So rather than fret and shove my BP through the ceiling I am going to sit back, cheer my team and enjoy the rugby whichever side is playing it.
