STAN'S DAILY VIEW ON LIFE

FRIDAY 15TH OF OCTOBER 1999

TODAY SEEN THE SAD ANNOUNCEMENT THAT ALL SYDNEY KNEW WAS COMING THOUGH MOST DREADED THE THOUGHT OF IT HAPPENING . SOUTH SYDNEY THE OLDEST REMAINING CLUB IN THE NRL HAS BEEN AXED FROM NEXT YEARS COMPETITION . IT WAS TODAYS LEAD STORY ON THE STAN ZEMANEK SHOW . HERE IS AN EXCEPT FROM TONIGHTS SHOW.

                                           STAN COMMENTS
            A DAY WHEN YOU NO DOUBT HEARD THE NEWS THAT RUGBY LEAGUE TEAM SOUTH SYDNEY HAVE BEEN DROPPED FROM THE NATIONAL RUGBY LEAGUE . AS THE NRL RATIONALIZE IT'S COMPETITION TO 14 TEAMS. IS IT THE END OF AN ERA SOUTH SYDNEY WAS THE 3RD LEAGUE TEAM TO BE FORMED AFTER GLEBE AND NEWTOWN ALMOST 92 YEARS AGO IN 1908 .
            AND SO IT IS A SAD DAY FOR MANY RABBITOH FANS WHO'VE GROWN   UP WITH THE TEAM AND WHOSE CHILDREN ALSO GROWN UP SUPPORTING THE RED , WHITE AND GREEN.
            AND I KNOW MY SISTER BETTY AND HER HUSBAND TOM WILL BE SINCE THEY WERE KIDS AND I KNOW BOTH OF THEM ACTUALLY WERE DOWN AT THE MARCH LAST WEEK AT TOWN HALL . THEY HAD COME ALL THE WAY DOWN FROM PORT MACQUARIE . DOWN THERE TO SUPPORT ALL THE OTHER SOUTH SYDNEY FOLLOWERS
            AND I SUPPOSE YOU WOULD CALL IT GALLOW HUMOUR BUT I SEE THE SUPPORTERS HAVE GIVEN RUPERT MURDOCJ THE NEW NICKNAME "ELMER FUDD " AS ONE ANGRY FAN EXPLAINED TO ME HE WAS ALWAYS TRYIG TO SHOOT BUGS BUNNY . BUT IN TRUE BUGS BUNNY STYLE THE RABBITOHS ARE NOT ABOUT TO CRAWL INTO THIER RABBIT HOLES AND LICK THIER WOUNDS . AND WITH THE SUPPORT OF PEOPLE LIKE RAY MARTIN AND ALAN JONES AND RUSSEL CROWE AND MIKE WHITNEYAND DON LANE AND NICK GRIENER AND LAURIE BRERETTON , ADRIAN RIDGEWAY AND DOZEN OTHER FANS AND 100s AND 1000s OF OTHER FANS IT IS GOING TO BE AWHILE IF AT ALL BEFORE WE HEAR THE CLUB SAY " WELL THATS ALL FOLKS ". BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU THINK IS THE WRITING ON THE WALL . MAYBE YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE YOUR SAY .
