Re: SARRIES FUTURE

As there has been no reduction in staff or no apparent reduction in the salary bill I expect that while they are winning the championship a movement will be started to increase the salary cap and then ring fence after they are promoted.

Re: SARRIES FUTURE

I am with you Noggs, their continued actions over the past years indicate there is no contrition but a continued cynical effort to keep going on in the same fashion,
. They give the game very bad stink.

Re: Sale vs Leicester - 21st February 2020

My opinion is that the BOD are only looking at the finances and some senior players their international careers, no one is concerned about the abysmal way we play. The Board console themselves that a) I am selling up so why bother and b) at least we will have a hotel and car park, which they think i...

Re: RFU halves Championship funding.

I said it before rugby union suffers from appalling bad management. Another decision where money damages the game, the premiership will be ring fenced and several championship clubs will go bust. Worse of all the incentive for a lot of aspiring English players is damaged and the premiership clubs wi...

Re: It just gets worse for Saracens

If they broke the rules yes and I am English. Being partisan does not mean disregarding the rules.

Re: It just gets worse for Saracens

It is not about gaining advantage or not. It is about fairness and keeping a level playing field. If you cannot abide by the rules throw them out!

Re: SA to join a 7 nations set up

If we have SA then we must have Argentina and what about Tonga and Samoa, it will improve domestic rugby not one jot but it may improve the cash flow and hasten centrally contracted players. They will have no time for club rugby but play internationals all the time. Professionalism and cash has not ...

Re: It just gets worse for Saracens

an ineligible player is an ineligible player whatever the reason. Saracens have had a blatant disregard of rules for years but again they get away with it. The sport (business?)is tainting itself day after day is continued mismanagement.

Re: SA to join a 7 nations set up

It’s all about money- greed no thoughts of player welfare. Eventually internationals will not play for clubs because of mandatory rest periods and matches for international players it will not leave any time left and clubs will stop paying massive salaries to players that only play twice a season.

Re: It just gets worse for Saracens

Other clubs committing the same offence had points deducted why not Saracens. They cheated their way to the final, fielded a an ineligible player why a different punishment?

Re: Saracens are relegated!

I think it was more than 10k but the taxman is not my business it’s the salary cap. For instance I will pay you 100. K a year but you are worth more so here is 50k to buy your house pay me back if you sell it. Salary cap ? 100k or 150k I do not know but the salary cap does.

Re: Saracens are relegated!

What I do not understand is they are relegated but are they continuing to pay players and exceed they salary cap? If so they should be slung out completely. As for players denying any knowledge of the cap being exceeded is rubbish they are complicit. How many of us can go to their employer ( who is ...
