The Silence is deafening

I would start this with, “Is it just me?”, but I know it is not just me.

Have the Cheetahs gone on vacation and forgotten to return?

The Sharks are just returning from a much publicized training session in Phokeng. The Stormers, Lions & Sharks are about to tackle each other in the Neo-africa warm up series. The Lions have just announced a new R20-Million sponsor. The Bulls are riding the soccer wave with announcements about playing matches at Soccer stadiums.

And the Cheetahs?……………… Well that is just it, there is a deafening silence and even their fans are starting to get restless if the comments from fans on the Vodacom Cheetahs page on the popular social networking site Facebook are anything to go by. That is correct it is STILL called the Vodacom Cheetahs page. Vodacomcheetahs was still their official URL until Friday. The logos at various places on their website still display the Vodacom Cheetahs logos. The whole place just smacks of poor amateurism, and I mean poor as in pathetic not as in financially

Calvin on Facebook says: “It is sad, even heartbreaking to read the newsgroups, websites and news reports how all the other Super teams train, team build… see their jerseys. They have trials… news conferences and their supporters are getting into the spirit. It is as if the Cheetahs don’t exist… no sponsor… no news reports… nothing for the supporters to get excited over.” He continues to express his dismay that “everyone is just talk and nobody has the guts to stand up against the Free State management”

Nico another Facebook Cheetah fan is dismayed that yet another Friday has come and gone without any news from the Cheetahs. Louis wants to know “why the other unions can all get sponsors and the Cheetahs not?” Rachelle suspects “the Cheetahs will be taking a gap year” Francois is short and to the point “We are waiting Cheetahs management”

Why IS the Cheetah union finding it so hard to find a sponsor? It is not as if they are the South African team with the worst performance ever in the Super Rugby series, the worst team ever has just landed yet another big sponsorship, this one for R20-million.

Are the Cheetahs trying to secure a long term sponsor? Common business sense would lead me to believe that to be the case. That may just be the problem.

The EP Kings are on course to join the Super rugby franchise in the very near future. And that will in all likelihood be at the expense of one of the existing teams with little chance of another expansion before the Kings join. Could this be a case of nobody being prepared to enter into a long term deal with the Cheetahs on the off chance that they may be sponsoring a Vodacom Cup team in the near future?

It could also be a case of the business world asking the same questions some of us have been asking. What did the Cheetahs do with all the money they earned from their three successive Currie Cup titles coupled with the two runner up positions. The gate takings in that golden era from 2004 to 2009 must have been pretty substantial.

How could any management team achieve such success and have virtually nothing to show for it. If they cannot manage their own money, how are they going to manage someone elses? No half competent business owner/manager would willingly part with money that he knows will be squandered with no return to show for the investment.

The time has come for Harold Verster and his Vetkoek Paleis marketing team to fall on their swords.

  • A big union with a small union mentallity. Get someone with some ambition in there. The amount of pure class players this union lets go is also absurd.

    Agree that the Cheaters should have more to show for some excellent seasons. And really, they have no reason to be still whining about not having money.

  • I feel sorry for the Cheetahs and their supporters. I hope they land a good sponsor very soon and that their fans get behind the team by buying tickets and merchandise. It’s not a good feeling to think that the South African market is now only big enough to support 4 big pro teams. Next thing we’ll be bracketed with Scotland where pro rugby is struggling to keep it’s head above water.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 11) : I’ll do the smily thing first :smile: so I don’t get taken the wrong way. I wish EP Kings all the best I really do but there seems to be some kind illusion around here at the moment that the EP Kings are somehow successful. There is a reason why EP will be playing in the 2nd tier compo this year again, it’s because they’re a mickey mouse team that couldn’t win promotion because they couldn’t even top the C/Cup B section. Why? Because they didn’t have the quality players to get the job done. The reason for this: they don’t have the bucks. Many of the guys on EP’s books are players who for some or other reason weren’t good enough to play for Vrystaat. EP Kings must try to pay the likes of WP Nel, Coenie O, Ad Strauss, Juan S, Heinrich B, Jongi N etc. as well as the many promising up and coming youngsters like Frans U, Waltie V, Philip vdW, Robert E and as well as the handful of Griquas players set to join forces with Vrystaat. Then we will see how far past the start line that precious sponsorship dough carries EP, if they even make it to the start line.
    Furthermore the Vrystaat supports outstanding junior players programmes. What do the EP Kings have as far as junior structures are concerned? I’m guessing Zilch!
    KSA Shark, you are picking on a union that has been a success story for a long time and comparing them to a union that has been for the most part a total failure – Marketing and Management wise.
    What bugs me even more and KSAS this touches on something that you mentioned in you post above, is that SARU now want to hand a superrugby franchise to the undeserving EP presumably at the expense of Vrystaat. The intention seems admirable on the surface. The E/Cape region has many developing players and superrugby on their doorsteps will give youngsters there something to aspire to. The process conveniently overlooks where SA have been getting many of its star Bok players from for the last 20 or so years…Vrystaat!!! What is now time for Vrystaat youngsters to get kicked in the head?
    You can dislike the Vrystaat and take joy in their misery but realise that but you can’t diminish the important role they play in SA rugby. Personally I don’t support their team but I hope like mad that Vrystaat gets a good sponsorship deal to help them continue with the good work they’re doing for SA rugby. And I think there are some people in high places in SA rugby that need a serious reality check.

  • @beet (Comment 20) : I’m on my phone so I’m not going to give a loooong opinion, but I will say this.

    Don’t fall into the trap that most Cheetah supporters do.

    The school that supplies the most Boks in the OFS is Grey. BUT the students who go to Grey are from all over the country. Classic examples of “bloem boys” who were “stolen” from the OFS are Andre Joubert and Henry Honiball, Ladysmith and Underburg (both in Natal) respectively.

    It is not the Cheetahs who are developing these players it is the school system. No matter where the union plays the school will still produce good players from ALL OVER the country.

    Another good example of that is Paarl. In which division does their union play. I believe Paarl falls under Boland.

    Spot on. The Grey feeder system will continue to churn despite the success or failure of the Cheaters – just as they have during the long Cheaters drought.

    The Kings have a long way to go, but they do are a talent pipeline of note, and having them pushing to get their feet under the table should lift the game of all SA teams.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 22) : @KSA Shark © (Comment 22) : Do yourself a good favour. Watch some junior rugby. Go back and look at the junior rugby results over the years. You’ll then realise that Vrystaat do a standout job developing players after school.
    Don’t fall into the trap of people who dislike GCB, I follow Grey Bloem and know that most of their quality players actually do come from Vrystaat. + GCB also denies buying players.
    Bad examples Joubert and Honibal. They did not go to Grey Bloem, they attended local schools. A friend of mine played 1st team with Honibal. They are however 2 shining examples of how good Vrystaat have been at developing players after school.
    I stand to be corrected but I think there was a court ruling that finally determined that Paarl falls within the W/Cape. But that’s of little consequence coz just like EP, Boland would never have had the financial clout to hold onto the talent coming out of Paarl + S/Bosch anyway.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 23) : EP have had 15 years to get something done. Even if they’d been able to hold their own like little Griquas have, they would have had the likes of the Sharks playing in PE every year – there would have been something for the heaps of talented youngers to look forward.
    The reality is as long as they form part of a depressed regional economy, they will continue to struggle financially.
    Accept that if they get an S15 berth they must be able to pay the next Smith, Brussow, Oosthuizen etc, otherwise they’ll be hopeless.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 22) : Also from your post. Where did the Vrystaat money go from successful years. Probably into paying contracts.
    Toulouse and Stade Francais have bigger per annum budgets than the money SARU gets from Newscorp via SANZAR annually. So imagine the pressure on the system to offer guys like Smith and Brussow competitive contracts, when there is so much money in Euro clubs.
    If Vrystaat goes down and EP doesn’t come thru and the other 4 big unions can’t absorb all the pro players and juniors that Vrystaat would have contracted, then what?
    Fifa’s even passing new rules requiring highly successful Euro football clubs to stay out of the red. Serie A clubs are know to pay players as much as 90% of the total income.

  • @beet (Comment 27) :

    I don’t dislike Grey Bloem at all. I think it is an excellent school where close friends of mine went to school and some of their parents were teachers. One of the points I am making is that the stars will still be produced regardless of what level of Rugby the Cheetahs play.

    EP and OFS have both been using the same argument for ages. “If our players weren’t stolen we’d be a powerhouse” While that may be true, the retort of “If you could manage your money then you’d be able to counter offers from big unions” Is also true.

    I am not supporting the Kings over the Cheetahs. I am dealing with the reality that the Kings WILL play superrugby and that it will be at the expense of one of the current teams.

    The Stormers, Bulls and Sharks will all do pretty well barring some catastrophe. The Lions and Cheetahs perpetually fight for bottom spot of the SA teams.

    The Lions seem to be getting better and will have enough money to get even better in the immediate future. The Cheetahs are surrounded by rumours of not having money to pay full salaries, and while they are probably not true, they COULD become a very real reality if they don’t find a sponsor soon. This will lead to an even bigger exodus, starting a vicious circle resulting in a downward spiral JUST when the Kings will be on their way in.

    I have two issues with that.
    1) Did they chuck all the money into 2 or 3 contracts? Bad business sense.

    2)The successful years would have been a good PR department’s dream come true with sponsorships FLOODING in. There is ZERO evidence of the Cheetahs cashing in on the success. Bad Marketing.

    I feel strongly that SA needs an as strong as possible 5 team for many reasons.
    At the end of the day you and I are on the same side. There are plenty of Vrystaat supporters who hate the Sharks. They can take up the cause. They should get behind the team. I still hope we take 10 points off them every season but they stay strong enough to beat our other opponents.

    I agree that regional economics has an effect, but FS is also a poor economic region, while the Lions have sucked despite being located in the African financial heart. Let’s not place too much emphasis on this.

    The Kings may or may not fail. The Lions and Cheetahs have failed. The Kings should be encouraged and allowed to develop a plan to compete in Superugby, and I fail to see anything that you have presented which is uniquely applicable to them, and shows that they cannot succeed.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 36) : 100% right. I have not presented anything new. Just highlighting the obvious in the hopes of changing some opinions around here.
    Okay so Vrystaat not a great economy and a horrible S14 track record but several C/Cups in the last few years, a team that the Sharks with good cause have had to take seriously and a noticeable contributor to Springbok rugby. In my books definitely not the failure you’re so quick to define them as.
    EP in the last 15 years – ???. Oh yes weren’t they twice liquidated. Surely they could have done better? They have been a complete failure.
    I’m not opposed to EP succeeding but things need to be kept in perspective. Relative to EP’s achievements even the Leopards are huge success story.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 36) : Also the Cheetahs shortcoming in the S14 can’t be attributed to poor management or lack of resources, because the same outfit minus some very useful Griquas players have beaten full strength Blue Bulls, Sharks and WP teams in the same calendar years indicating that they have always had the potential to succeed.

    I disagree on the degree of some of what you are presenting, but not really outright.

    But I don’t see your argument, if you are saying that FS should be feted and retained for Superrugby and EP not. Nothing that you have said argues against EP getting their shot at the expense of the weakest of the current teams.

    You say FS have been a success, yet they still don’t have a sponsor and still complain about being a small union. I choose to define success rather differently.

    Let EP compete with the other unions for a shot at the big time, and just for a change, let’s give them the same bleeding-heart sympathy we seem to retain for FS.

  • To me it is as simple as this.

    if the Cheetahs had decent management and marketing that could get them money they would have been able to hold on to the players they keep losing each season.

    With that in the bag they would be a power to be reckoned with in Superrugby.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 39) : @KSA Shark © (Comment 40) : Okay guys without boring you much longer I’ll state my case once more:
    I hope VS get a good sponsorship deal, not coz I support them but coz I think it’s in SA rugby’s best interests.
    Don’t just judge VS on this hopefully temporary shortcoming. Look at their track record.
    In the same manner don’t fall into the KSA Shark trap, don’t just deem EP to be a success based on what’s happened in 2010, look at their history.
    Realise that in relation to VS, EP has been a complete failure up to now.
    I’d like to see EP take the baby steps. Get C/C promotion. Avoid C/C relegation thereafter. Show that they can hold their own like the Griquas in the C/C. Then SARU step in and say right now lets consider EP for S15 status coz they’ve proved themselves. This is about a 5 year process.
    However Sharksworld rule 4 specifically prevents me from talking about the real reasons how EP will inevitably end up in SR.

    We don’t need to discuss WHY EP will end up in Superrugby, there is nopthing we can do about that so no use discussing it even if we wanted to.

    Which team will make way for them is something that can be discussed. WHY a certain team should or will make way for them is also something we can discuss.

    As I mentioned above the vicious circle and the downward spiral that will start if they don’t get a sponsor soon could be the last shove to push them over the edge.

  • It amazes me how rugby can be professional when it suits people but amateur when it doesnt. Take this as an example, should a company’s directors not plan for the future and as a result the company loses its major customers and therefore its major revenue streams then those directors will be ousted by the shareholders as they have not done their job. How is that any different to the Cheetahs Rugby Union which is a professional company, well as far as I know anyway. But those in charge seem to treat it as an amateur club! Where is their academy to keep their talented school boys in the province? Why are the business’s in the Free Sate not supportive of the Union- is it because they know it is mismanaged and dont want to see no return for their money?
    At the end of the day the Cheetahs will produce sum good performances and sum bad performances in this years S15 as they have good but inconsistent players. For the sake of SA rugby I hope they get their house in order!

  • Cheetahs have a sponsor?????

    Details regarding the sponsorship are currently being negotiated and out of respect for the sponsor, their name will be announced within the next fourteen days. This sponsorship as well as other sponsorships obtained during the period has put the Free State Cheetahs and Cheetahs in a very fortunate position to continue business as usual and to expand.

    Sales of suites and season tickets are also growing and the Cheetah players, management and staff are exited about the season and future that lies ahead.
