We have had rich men take a punt on us though. Elwood and Kennedy for starters. What state were we in after Elwood left? How much success did we enjoy under Kennedy, even after he gave us Sammy Mac, Marc Bridge -Wilkinson, etc.?
One thing that many many clubs have shown time after time us that money doesn’t always lead to success. Good managers are hard to find and are worth more than bad managers with money.
