Get real, Reynecke!

I see Manie Reynecke is shooting his mouth off on yet another website today about how the Lions will fight “tooth and nail” to prevent Willem Alberts and Louis Ludik from joining the Sharks.

This chap really needs to get a grip on reality. Fact number 1, Manie, is that neither player wants to stay in Johannesburg. Fact number 2, Manie, is that you do not have a contract with either that is enforceable. You went to arbitration over Jaque Fourie and lost, because your contracting process is a mess. That’s your fault, as CEO. Admit your mistakes, take it on the chin and move on.

Throwing good money after bad is not going to achieve anything for the Lions and is further going to do nothing other than harm the players, as they’ll potentially have to wait up to three months before joining their new team mates. Going this route is nothing other than mean-spirited and spiteful, particularly since you already know that both players want to leave and that there’s nothing practical you can do to stop them doing so. All you can do is delay the process.

Dick Muir is rumoured to have said that he only wants to work with players who are committed to the Lions’ cause. Accept, please, that Louis Ludik and Willem Ablerts are not and let them go.

  • I really can’t see what Mr Reynecke hopes to achieve.

    Surely the Fourie arbitration outcome means if the other players’ contracts have the same flaw/loophole he’ll lose. Again.

  • Not only mean-spirited and spiteful, but childish.

    He seems unable/unwilling to accept and that the union he is in charge of cocked things up royally. :roll:

  • @McLovin (Comment 1) : yes. But it seems that he wants to be petty.

    Sooner the Lions get rid of this loser, the better

  • SKAAM VIR JOU

    ‘n Man stop langs ‘n dogtertjie wat terugstap huis toe na skool.

    “As jy in klim sal ek jou ‘n suigstokkie gee.”

    Die dogtertjie hou net aan loop.

    Die man ry stadig agter haar aan. Weer sê die man:

    “As jy inklim dan gee ek jou hierdie hele sak suigstokkies!”

    Die dogtertjie draai om en sê:

    “Pa, ek het al hoeveel keer vir jou gesê, ek ry nie in daai Cortina met ‘n Bulls vlag aan nie!”

  • these people @ GLRU are delusional, this whole year they’ve been moving from crisis to crisis – leon boshoff & racial issues, ashwin willemse resigning summarily etc – even with in the JF case i thought their objection to him joining another union was spurious @ best. “on principle we don’t want him to join wp” what is this principle?

    Well these lions administrators are certainly charting new territory in the landscape of incompetent sport officials in our country!
