@Ramage, I actually agree with you, although I am NSW through and through, the heirachy of the Tahs is abysmal they treat their own fans poorly and there is never any loyalty shown to the players, it's like a mercenary outfit where if you don't succeed then they kick you out! Why they are rude and arrogant is most likely that Rugby in Sydney is a "silvertail" sport played by rich private schools, and the public or govt schools are looked down upon, I know i remember playing matches for my public school against a private school in Sydney 20 yrs ago... it's a culture thing and it needs to change because quite frankly it "SUX" dead right they have never won a title or any admirers for that! Egos in the way!?

Ramage, Living in Rome does not make one an Italian.
Trinats, that explains this season, what about all the others??
And are the injury woes suffered by the Blues, Tahs or even Reds any worse trhan that of the Chiefs this year??

Well, well, well. It's unfortunate that Michael Foley wasn't able to achieve results because he's a good bloke and forwards coach, however that is not enough. A head coach needs to be more like an attitude coach than a technical coach. I don't believe that Michael Foley really understands this principle and or how to apply it.
The best way to resolve a problem is to recognise one exists. I just hope that the Tahs management don't see this as Foley's problem or the others that have left but as an opportunity to take responsibility, find salient resolutions and ensure that future risks are mitigated using lessons learned from previous mistakes.
We'll have to see, I'm not entirely confident that the ego's at the top fully understand their affect on the situation and obligations to their members.

Not harsh at all Trinuts as the Flower girls are always Super contenders at the start of the year and then go missing in action. My bias goes back to my Taranaki days when the Waratahs were wanting to get something going with the bigger unions in NZ but this particular year couldn't get anyone to play them . Their officials although visitors were rude arrogant and treated us as if we were beneath them So I have never had time for them since and always cheered on Queensland when they played.
No Trinuts Im not a surfer or a yuppie, so no Bondi for me Im actually closer to you only two hours away from the Gold Coast so one of these days when Im in Brissie we will meet face to face over a beer or bundy and continue our sparring. I'II will be in an area known as the Northern Rivers no doubt you will know where I am talking about but further inland than Casino and up towards the Queensland Border. Its Tony Windsor country, I believe.

Bit harsh. Tahs like the Blues have had a horrid season with injures.
You moving next door to Steve Walsh in Bondi ?

Any pressure to resign??? Sydney has historically been one of Australian Rugbys 2 strongholds, and have very much under achieved under his tutelage.
