    What's the deal with us and the lack of TPA's ? I'm not an expert of the subject and don't really know much about businesses in Newcastle but we're a one club town so surely we'd have no competition for TPA's in Newcastle.

    Are there not enough businesses in Newcastle ?

    Why aren't we reaching out to the big industries like the mines etc?

    Is it the case there isn't enough or not enough is being done ?

    The knights have a long history of burning bridges in the area!

    The area also doesnt have enough corporate business to provide sponsorship and then tpa.

    Newcastle mite be a one town team but Newcastle is 1/11 the size of Sydney and 1/25 in the corporate world.

    What about Canberra and the Cowboys ? Surely they're in the same boat ?

    Cowboys are owned by one of the wealthiest men in the country with players like JT x 2 Matt Scott and been a top side for adecade.

    Canberra are run by Queenbeyan leagues which is as big as wests and float them to the hills... also Canberra has huge corporate business.... the big fish are there.

    Add the fact most of the major businesses willing to contribute in the region are already club sponsors, ruling them out of TPA deals

    Pretty much!

    The 2 local banks wont touch us ever.. due to poor history and no profit in it for them.
    Most other big local business is on board already.

    Mc Jones are a sleeve sponsor atm but they also own MoJo homes and a 35% share in Simmons not sure thats a arm length tpa deal that could be looked into.
    Giving players a new home as tpa would be a huge incentive lol

    Gidley says the problem is that our sponsors aren't allowed to give TPAs, and all the people in Newcastle who are interested in football already sponsor the Knights.

    TPA's really are a blight on the game, it makes for an unfair playing level and also invites corruption and cheating, but sadly I can't see them getting rid of them cause the big sides have the NRL by the balls and it gives them a massive advantage ......

    Everyone loves a winner, and we are not.

    Little piecemeal tpas don't matter either, you need the juicy $300k a year ones like Hayne got from the travel company, and whoever is doing Jack Birds (Andrew Gee).

    Beau scott got a 80k boat plus a little tv series worth about 40k a yr on his deal.

    We can do it when we get the performance on field right and ownership sorted.

    Another reason we should be handing out hamdies to the wests board to take us over.

    Told you before Lord, that is Uncle Rupe's boy you be talking about!

    The whole NRL is a mess, and as for that press release yesterday about peace between the NRL, Clubs and RLPA, use it for a much better purpose. Cut it up and punch a hole for string and tie it up in the loo!
