Staff Eric Watson

Didn't Owen put in six Mill up front then funded sum extra's ? The gym and stuff ?

Philanthropy is one thing, but if Owens account of things are true, Eric ended up being like the spouse that screws u in divorce court to the point where its no longer palatable to call your investments unconditionally gifted.

Who knows what's what really, by t by the tone of that presser, Jim's the voice of the mediator and his compliments of Owen are diplomacy 101.

Can't blame Owen for not wanting to leave money that benefits a personal enemy.

Human nature.

Quote from Watson in stuff today.. Made me chuckle a little..

"Watson told the New Zealand Herald from London that he had bought out his former partner.

"I believe he committed to put, effectively, the value of the proceeds of his shareholding ... into grassroots rugby league, and that's a good thing for the sport," Watson said.

"One would assume he would [still] inject the value into that trust except it would now be cash."

Better putting cash into the sport than giving the warriors a board of trusties... Thanks Owen for sparing us that fate...

Watson has made a fortune out of never giving a sucker an even break, just look at the Hanover situation. However from all accounts Glenn can be just as hard nosed. I don't feel sorry for him.

I never feel sorry for mega millionaires either. I just see a game of strategic manoeuvring between two Alpha Males finally come to its conclusion.

I see it as an argument between a billionaire and a millionaire (one that is work over a hundred of those). So I'm not too worried if he's left thinking he's lost money or anything as they both would have made bad investments over the years and had bad business dealings. This should just be looked at as another one.

It's just good to know this is now behind us. They can go to court about their other business issues and sort that out and the Warriors can be left out of all of that.

Remember when Eric Watson decked Russell Crowe in London:D

Not that I condone violence against women but anybody else remembers that bullshit story of when he found out his wife Nikki Watson was cheating on him with Matthew Ridge he was allegedly seen chasing her around house with sharp object singing their wedding song ? This is not a man to be fucked with. Owen Glen is probably better off out of it ...

Where did you read that, Womans Day, right after the article about Rod and Rachel getting back together?
 
EW definetly has an unhinged element to him. Now that Glen is out that wild side should return to the Warriors style of play.... Can't wait...

Dude I know. That's why I said that was bullshit. And just because you asked me it wasn't NZ Woman's Day I read it in, it was National Enquirer. It was right next to headlines "A Picture Of Elvis Cured My Cancer", "Redneck Aliens Take Over Trailer Park", "Denver Broncos Draft Godzilla" and "Bigfoot Kept Lumberjack As Love Slave ... " ;)

Used to live in Avondale and is a cousin of the cricketers Crowe. The NRL loves him though because Souths would be dead without him.

I know who he is, and that the Australian government won't give him a passport... I was merely taking the piss about Australians often being racist, and him allegedly making racist comments about the warriors players... match made in heaven.
