That would be disgraceful behaviour by the media involved. If there's enough proof of whatever, go to the police or publish now.

The police? Surely whatever this bombshell is it’s not of a criminal nature! Then again, who knows these days.

From what I can gather its to do with what she included in her resignation letter. Certain parties want her to publish it.

This is typical media though. 

You go in wanting to speak truth to power and you come out writing click bait. 

Obviously not true of all journos but they are human like everyone else and are generally most concerned about the impact of their stories vs simply reporting the truth

But get all snobby and defensive over independent fan media.

This is a really poor post. You’ve got no evidence of that.

Its not my intention to cause trouble for trouble sake.

But can I respectfully challenge you on that?

I believe it has everything to do with it when incompetence is at large, and not being made accountable.

When we are talking someone being in charge of a massive business that is wholly under qualified and lacking any relevant experience. Then I feel its the rights of those that suffer their inept leadership to question it.

Or else we live in a world without accountability and integrity.
I was referring more to Ladram's post and, while i appreciate he wasn't accusing anything directly, Reesy's first post.
How on earth did i take it below board?i googled her name and that's what came up.

Lads!
This isn't going to be  murky sex scandal, or even a corruption issue.

More likely a highly respected captain of industry calling out the WRU for being small minded, incompetent, inward looking amateurs slowly destroying what was once a great part of our culture. One of the few things this small country has a truly global reputation for.

Something like that

Something like that

And in the background, the generation inspired by the iconic 70s era of rugby begins to get older, while a generation captured by Wales’ 2016 Euros journey matures into adulthood - they start to miss a Rugby international for a football away day and football becomes the national sport

I don’t know the ins and outs of what’s going on in the WRU but I don’t trust them not to sleepwalk into a crisis.

I was trying to think of the previous biggest story?

Almost merging us and the Os in 2019 felt pretty big at the time

Then the creation of regional rugby would be up there

Sam Warburton’s red card 😅
