    I think they will get a polite "no thank you" from Wests.

    Spot on slots. If Wests can work a deal with the NRL, which seems unlikely with Turdburg wanting this ten million nonsense.

    at the end of the day, whatever way they go just get it sorted already. everything from signings to club ownership has been up in the air and "in progress" for such a long time it's getting old.

    These things take time, i get that. but while the suites are busy fluffing around "negotiating" it's hurting the club. Just get it sorted

    I honestly just wish they would drop off altogether, there is no need for this if Wests take ownership and they would likely be a bunch of whingers in the background causing trouble IMO.

    No doubt, I don't think Wests have any interest in them. If Wests take control of the Knights they will want full control. What does the Our Knights team offer them, a bit of a cash injection initially that Wests don't really need, then half or part ownership to have to deal with forever.

    And given the Our Knights group were asking $500 a share for full ownership, what happens if they go in to part ownership with Wests? Less per share or less shares?

    Anyway, for mine the Our Knights bid was a pipe dream from the beginning.

    We come with our own set of jousting sticks - they must be worth $250, depending on condition?

    Yeah thats been the word for 6wks.... so mute/stale/zip doing.

    Wests are only interested in 50% anyway so still will be nrl owned! Not the greatest win fall tbh

    So Wests don't appear to want a bar of the our team crew.

    But, Wests only want 50% ownership. What stops the NRL selling half to Wests, then selling the other half to the our town team.

    Not that I think it is likely, but what could Wests do about it?

    Anyway, hopefully we can get some sort of ownership happening. If they sell even 50% to Wests, that snuffs out any talk of moving the team, BS or not.

    Didn't the NRL sell 50% off the Tigers?
