JD Gone

Post by Kofi Annan » Fri May 25, 2018 9:01 pm

James Donaldson longtime Ulster supporter aged 57 was given his P45 today at Ulster rugby headquarters , James was only through the gates at 9 O’clock when given the news.

James said
“ I only came in to buy the wee grandson an Ulster beanie as they were reduced and a womean from HR handed me the P45 and said to see security on the way out and hand my pass back, Devasted , I never thought my time as a supporter would end this way , at least I got to see a match on Sunday”

Ulster Rugby were unavailable for comment.

Lucky guy. I'm doing my best to get kicked out, but the sods still took my £500 for a season ticket.
I have a cunning plan...why not just leave things as they are but tell the Brexiteers that we have left the EU? After all they believe every lie that they were told by Boris and Nigel.

Official now, I wonder why it took nearly a month to be official :scratch: , must have cost Dublin some dosh, I assume Nucifuria will have a replacement lined up.

Interesting to read the tweets on JDs Twitter massive respect from the players, very unified front. Sending out a clear message ?

Or just giving a colleague best wishes for the future. Hard to define it as a united front of opposition to D4 interference, as some would like.

I agree with Moley, players praising him speaks volumes about what they think of the decision.

On whether it was right or wrong, I have no idea.

I have no idea if getting rid of JD and GG was the correct decision or not. Certainly I don't believe they were the cause of our major problems.

Whether getting rid was the right thing or not, it does leave (another) bad taste in the mouth how the guys were informed of the decisions. They deserved a lot more respect than they received in the way it was done.

What I would like to say though is simply thanks guys for all you have done for Ulster Rugby over many years and best wishes for your future careers.

How many ACLs has the pitch claimed? Anyone keeping a spreadsheet on this?

I'm actually surprised the groundsman survived the cull after the micro climate weekend with no covers despite Angie, Cee and Barra all forecasting frost.

In case people are reading me wrong on this: I'm only saying the replies to JD's tweet don't prove player dissatisfaction. I'm not stupid enough to claim that the player dissatisfaction does not exist.
