    It's just ticked over to the glorious day where we become independent of the NRL again.

    So happy independence day everyone. We've celebrated this day in the past with the Tinkler take over supposedly assuring our future and we know how that turned out!

    But with Wests proven history of financial success we really should have a very financially secure future. As long as Wests remain owners and don't end up selling us at some point.

    Anyway, I thought a thread commemorating the event was in order.

    And with the government unlikely to chip in their share for the sporting district, Wests will end up paying 2 cents for the Knights.

    I'm sure the NRL will come out with their usual statement that for the NRL this was never about money yadda yadda.

    But you would think effectively giving Newcastle away would have a devastating effect on their attempted sale of Gold coast!

    They swear they hadn't been made aware of this either.

    I expected to see more news coverage of the changeover happening today but nothing.

    Nothing on knights site, news sites, herald etc.

    I know the actual deal was done a while back but figured there would have been some mention of it.
