What do Rabbitohs fans think of losing Sandow to Parramatta
Bunny Buddies at La Perouse
In the next few days we'll get to hear what South fans think as they come to terms with the loss of what many considered 'a family member'. And Souths fans aren't know for pulling their punches, so it will be interesting to see whether the mood one of hurt, anger, understanding, indifference or whether most are philosophical about the commerical realities of a professional sport.
Souths had appealed to Sandow to stay with the Club despite reports that Souths was unable to come close to the money being offered to Sandow by Parrmatta. At the end of the day, the money Parramatta put forward was just too good and few players (or coaches for that matter)would have done differently.
Chris Sandow gave South Sydney Football Club the heads up yesterday that he would be joining the Parramatta Eels next season, in a deal rumoured to be worth up to $550,000 per year.
South's CEO Shane Richardson said the Club was ' very disappointed' but wished Chris 'best for the future'.
“Unfortunately for us he has met his Alan Bond,” said Shane Richardson.
