One of Chris Ashton's points on the 5 live pod was something like Sarries were applying a London weighting due to the cost of houses! But also, apparently none of these deals were part of contract negotiation anyway. In fairness to Ugo, he pushed back a bit.
I am increasingly irritated by the smug demeanour of Sarries representatives as well and am surprised at the reach of their PR, which must be costing.
I don't envy Sarries, I was pleased to see an open style win the Prem a couple of seasons ago (the last one wasn't quite so good imo), but feel cross that they did it unfairly. I feel disillusioned and will vote with my feet. As a direct result, I'm not going to the Prem final this year, which is a bit sad as it had started to become a tradition for me and my lad. I am also not going to watch Wasps play them at the Ricoh either and will inform Wasps. I don't care what name they chuck at me, such as hater, or envious etc. and I know my stand will make no difference to them, but I can choose not to be a part of it.
