Silver fans, how dare you?
Recently Reserve Bank announced that it would stop bank rolling Silver Strikers football club in addition to selling the stadium and club house. This was sad news for the well financed club, it’s supporters and the football loving public in general. One does not need to be a rocket scientist to see the troubles teams like Michiru Castles and Big Bullets are going through due to lack of sponsorship.
However what I find absurd and totally out of line was the demand by fans and supporters. They are calling on the RBM Governor to resign for pulling the plug on sponsorship! Excuse me but where on earth do they get the mandate to call for his head? He explained that the central bank is not in the business of running a football team. He has put his facts on the table and they make proper business sense.
Can the supporters give more convincing facts for the governor to resign other than the feeble excuse that previous governors continued to sponsor the team? If they can’t I would advise them to use their remaining energies on fund raising or finding a new sponsor. Time is not on their side!
