  • @Rvw (Comment 2) : pretty much that. Apparently SuperSport wanted this oke (Faul) to put his name into the hat, but the Titans countered so he’s pulled out.

  • @robdylan (Comment 4) : Faul is a class act and superb administrator. would have been a huge coup and placed The Sharks in a completely different league – can completely understand why the Titans countered.

    Jacques should be leading Cricket SA or SARU, SACOC etc – he is by far the best administrator in the country

  • @Big Fish (Comment 10) : @FireTheLooser (Comment 11) : Just for you 2. Such a great sponsor and yet we still in the dwang. I suspect that the #savedbythecell may be more true than it is in jest.

    I’m really worried about Salmo; what’s he going to be an angry young black man about now?

    Louisiana or Minnesota?

  • @Big Fish (Comment 14) : I think the Cape drivers will occupy my anger for the next couple of years. Jeepers, just a few days in and around Jhb reminds me how it could be without having to contend with drivers doing 40km in the fast lanes.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 17) : Pot, kettle, black – you are the one that harped back to the good old days of Nat censorship of newspaper articles. Having Naspers as a leading Sharks shareholder must leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling. :twisted: :mrgreen:

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 18) :
    I must disagree. You are spot on with regard to crawling in the fast lane down South, but here in Jhb they have no idea that one should not stop in an intersection if you’re likely to not make it across, and almost everybody generally drives like taxi drivers.

    Give me Kaapie drivers any day.
