    Player revolt in sa over quota system ??

    My mother just showed me a news clip on channel 144 (kyknet) where it was claimed that the white players in the franchise system is threatening to stop playing if the quota system isn't dropped. Apparently the brown players are also against the quota system but isn't part of the threatened action.

    Is this bogus or is it the truth ? News 24 has no news as far as I can see.

    Thanks

    Did read something similar but for the life of me, can't remember where. Googled it and couldn't find anything. Pretty sure we are part of the same hallucination Oduodu..

    Was a very short news report on channel 144 (kyknet) of dstv subscription service. But I definitely saw it.

    Maybe someone misunderstood .

    Who knows.

    LOL

    Yeah, I saw a headline to that effect somewhere - I thought on the BBC, though as you've both noted, there's no trace of it now.

    I have these moments quite a lot, tbh - feel slightly happier now that it's not just me that happens to

    Did a search on the web nothing so far.
    I guess the domestic sides would just pick replacement white players who are not part of the strike.

    Would not be overly surprised. Similar issues appear to be arising with SA rugby. Also, there was reportedly a lot of frustration over political interference in the WC semi-final match where the coach and captain wanted an unchanged line-up but were overruled.

    I don't understand the quota system. The whole apartheid ideology classified people by colour. The quota system does the same thing.

    At least wait until there's something definite until sprouting clickbait images.
