Agreed, and well put VV.
Looks like PR are following FIFA governance as their role model! The PR office must have a very big, loose mat to brush their dirt under. Coming clean was the only moral way forward, and not doing so is a disservice to both the sport and its supporters. They just didn't have the guts to do so/stand up to the bullies.
What we need now is a motion of no confidence in the PR hierarchy, supported by the clean clubs (assuming of curse they are in the majority).
Well done Wasps / Derek for going public on Wasps non-involvement.

Spot on again VV - and very well put.
The saddest thing of all is that this swell of outrage and disgust from supporters will quickly die down, which is the whole point of the delayed statement from PRL ie rather than risk supporters who are bored waiting for the prem to start from really kicking up a stink let's wait until the prem teams are playing again and people will be distracted back to the cut and thrust - another blinder played by the manipulators at PRL - I'm not sure there is an answer to this issue save people protesting by ignoring the prem sponsors products and telling them why - but again, it takes a concerted effort - so sad that we as supporters are unable to stop the PRL treating us with such utter contempt...... What values?...

Write to Aviva. I just did. helpdesk@aviva.co.uk

Sirs

I write in relation to the recent announcement of the existence of a secret settlement that has been entered into at Premiership Rugby following the accusation that some clubs in the Aviva Premiership may have broken the salary cap.

I advise you that unless I read in the press, within the next month, that Aviva is calling for Premiership Rugby to place details of any settlement in the public domain, I will be cancelling all existing insurance policies with Aviva and moving to other insurers. This may be a small sanction but I have no appetite for rewarding any company that relies for itís sponsorship on supporting an organisation that is not transparent and further, may be potentially corrupt in itís internal dealings.

Faithfully

Thanks Chilham - I've done the same -

"Dear sir / madam,

Failure of Premiership rugby to publish details of the Rugby salary cap breach (and cover up thereof), for the Aviva Premiership that you sponsor, I think will have a very negative impact on perception of your company.

[www.telegraph.co.uk]

The only product I currently have with you (though I have had many in the past), is a pension, which I will shortly look at transferring as a result, and I certainly will not take any other further policies with you in the future, while you endorse such terrible behaviour (albeit indirectly) by financially supporting their endeavours.

I think you will find the vast majority of Rugby fans feel the same way, and will act accordingly.

So many comments at the bottom of this article, considering it's only be up a few hours.

Interesting that allegedly Conor O'shea rang SL, telling him not to resign......not sure how much truth there is on that comment (one of the first ones at the bottom)

Interesting article but ultimately contradicts itself by being pro Lancaster, pro review board composition but saying the fans need more respect and information in return for our loyalty and time.

I don't know a single fan (apart from one on this board) who wants Lancaster to stay on but it's virtually guaranteed due to the compromised members of the review panel. The majority were involved in SL's appointment and have publicly supported him, Farrel and Rowntree. Plankaster is immovable.

Some of the most interesting comments are around input from the Celtic nations too - McGeechan, O'Shea - and they are very valid too.

The aim of the RFU and Prem Rugby is purely to monetise the addicts - or more bluntly put, extract as much cash out of the die hard fans as possible as they will plough money in regardless of any return. Few organisations are so bluntly arrogant about their aims though.

And talking about disregard for loyal fans, how about this latest news that the L Irish v Sarracheats Prem fixture will be played in New York in March L Irish v Saracens set for New York

The marketing company that will be paying Sarries' players for work they do that is completely unrelated to their playing of rugby is probably based there.

Salary Cap. It gets worse. Not only were @premrugby threatened with litigation, there were also threats to sue clubs individually.

Have a feeling, considering how much DR was against all this, and we came straight out with the statement, that Wasps may have been one of those.

Can you imagine the bad press a club would receive if they tried to sue Wasps though?

It seems in the last few days all clubs have made statements via their DOR or chairmen, all except two that is.....

Surely the clubs trying to hide things can't sue the others for simply stating their innocence but it does rather neatly step around the confidentiality issue...

Have Tigers and Falcons made statements? I've been told that Tigers did but couldn't find it. And Falcons had refused to make a statement for "confidentiality" reasons last I heard.

I'd be very happy indeed if they both did.

New to the forum itself but have enjoyed the banter for the last year or so. The salary cap cover-up has led to my first post (so forgive any errors).
'
Tried a personal approach with an email to Mr McCafferty but - of course - got a Mail Delivery Subsystem' error message.

'Technical details of permanent failure' seemed to sum things up nicely!
