Good grief the award for the biggest overreaction has been settled. Yes they broke the salary cap and they are now suffering the consequences with relegation and many players departing (many of them have been bought through the academy) and the club will be forever tainted by opponents labelling them as cheats for many years to come.patgadd wrote: ↑Sun Jan 19, 2020 6:36 pmAnd as for Sarries themselves, I note this morning that they now apologise for mistakes they made. Hitler invading Poland was obviously just a silly mistake, as was the slaughter of the plains Indians by the American government or the Enniskillen bombings, If only they'd apologised afterwards!
I agree with the sentiments re. supporters, total sympathy with the vast majority is certainly in order. I’m less sure that some of the senior players wouldn’t have had some idea that something must be a bit dodgy, or are they all totally naive? Reading around the various forums there’s a lot of anger about Sarries not being stripped of premiership titles.
I'm not the slightest bit surprised as it is well known that one of the main reasons Conor O'Shea left Quins was due to Saracens being allowed to pay a settlement fee to allow the inquiry into the previous cheating to be closed.FlipFlop wrote: ↑Fri Jan 24, 2020 12:31 pmHave to say i am surprised that Quins seem to main impetus behind recent actions in this saga.
After all, the likes of Kyle Sinckler, Joe Marler, Chris Robshaw, Mike Brown, Jamie Roberts, notable SH former AB's and similar don't come cheap in Suburbia, even when playing with Marquee rules. Has Wasps more recent loss of high profile players just been end of contract wastage / injury retirements?
