There's rugby being played on the pitch but it is off the field where the future of the game, and this club, is being decided. As Cardiff stutter on the field, because of financial weakness and a coaching structure more suited to ladies' bowls, it must correspond that their stature off the field stutters.
PRL, the English clubs' Umbrella organisation, have given a deadline of the end of the month for the Welsh teams to tell them which side their bread is buttered: http://www.espn.co.uk/wales/rugby/story/201127.html
Meanwhile, Walter the Softie tells the Welsh teams that it is his way or oblivion: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/rugby-union/24412491
We think that siding with Walter would mean the end of any chance of independence or control over the club's own affairs, so why would anybody choose that route. This man has explicitly stated that he wants to shut down our club as a professional rugby team in its own right as he wants to play God with Welsh rugby.
Uncle Peter: you have only one choice.
