    Well, well, well.........

    Only 6 months ago this was the article saying Bowers would not be taking over.

    Now today he is... I know it is not permanent currently, but we all know how hard it is to get him out of a seat.:D

    Seems Mr Bowers likes to take on a club straight after they win a Premiership:eek:

    Good luck to the Roar, I think you might need it.

    "We did a lot of research beforehand in and around that issue, and surprisingly very few people indicated that they wanted the maroon back in," Buckley said.

    Focus groups!

    I rate those jerseys. No-one identified the Roar with maroon anyway.

    I met bowers at a roar event, i won't say where or when but he is a bit of a spin master. I asked him about the lions jersey and he he said that it was put to the board and the final decision was not his. Also pointed out that it looked like a paddle pop lion, which he chuckled at.

    However i did tell him i liked the roars new jerseys and we shouldn't change it.
