- Reaction score
Agree entirely with this, rarely if ever happens in my experience. Clubs that try such antics usually get done over by responsible clubs teaching them a lesson and making hostile bids for the waters the errant club controls.The idea that clubs compete for water is largely false. Other entities may try to outbid clubs, but clubs very rarely go head to head in direct financial competition. Clubs that attempt to poach waters from other clubs don't tend to last too long. They don't tend to get wind of water that may be being relinquished by a sitting club. There's also very little in terms of competition for members. Most clubs know the score and don't pull stunts to pinch members from each other. There is far greater co-operation between clubs than most non-members or ordinary members will ever realise.
