A media release has just come in (possibly 16 minutes early at 11:44pm) announcing the Brumbies and Raiders are joining forces to stem the tide of red ink:

In a World first, the Canberra Raiders and ACT Brumbies have agreed to merge both clubs into a single organisation.

Coaches and players will remain with their current teams and continue to play in both competitions.

Executive and board members will be asked to reapply for their positions in the new organisation.

Both teams will continue to compete in elite Rugby League and Rugby Union, with a combined brand and administration.

Reduced costs through rationalising the Executive CANBERRA Super Club and Board by over 50% will be passed on to fans. Prices are Expected to be cut by half.

Cheaper tickets to games, and cheaper beer at games. Financial members of each team will receive a 50% refund for the remainder of the year.

Team sponsors and advertisers will benefit from the merger with both gaining exposure from the two different codes.

Further details will be released in the coming days.

I know that such articles are posted in good fun… but why do we do this? I’m yet to see one that was funny… ever.

And where does it come from? Is this more Americanised crap that we feel the need to inflict on our culture (similar to the rant that I’ve begun to inflict on children and their parents every 31 October)?

Maybe I’m an old fuddy duddy – but I don’t see the value or merit in such crap.

It’s all a bit older than ‘Americanised crap’ if you’d bother to look up wikipedia.

I’m more concerned with the modern Australian culture of whinging about everything.

If we start worrying about things that will confuse Barcham we’ll never stop.

Won’t this just further confuse your new ‘sport correspondent’?

Designing that uniform must have taken minutes.

Rumour is that Dugan and Carney have been resigned…

Yes. That’s the sad part.

Should have just announced they were going to re-sign Josh Dugan. Now that would have been funny.

Vindalu 10:16 am 01 Apr 13

Cheaper beer at games! yeah that definitely makes it a joke.

I think this must be a hoax. No way they would pass on savings to the fans.

Is this RiotAct or 1980’s radio? Radio just called, Kix 106 wants its Schtick back.

There’s probably some complicated rule about such things that are perpetrated before midnight…
