With the European Super League scurrying back to the dark corner under the fridge from where it came from, one of its participants may rethink its plans in other ventures.
Manchester United is in the market for Australian football team, Central Coast Mariners.
The fans might be able to stomach that, but the worry is the proposal to relocated the team to northern Sydney.
Not only will the fans hate that, it will drop the team into a region that is aggressively nonplus about football or indeed pretty much any sport.
The move would be doomed to failure.
