Jeez!! Just caught up with the BBC's Radio Wales phone in this morning (on BBC radio catch-up "Morning Call with Oliver Hides" and the interview with David Pickering. He seemed to suggest that Lewis was responsible for the Millennium Stadium, the 1999 World Cup and the first Grand Slam. All before his tenure.

Graham Clutton being excessively sycophantic and a "member of the public" spouting how Lewis has superbly funded grass roots - again quoting the millions that Lewis has funded the regions without qualifying how much of that merely passed through the Union's hands. The guy is obviously a plant as he has facts and figures at his fingertips and able to quote.

Ultimately, this is what you get when you're offered a free ride and no accountability by the press and therefore the majority of the public. Those in the western mail should be ashamed of the lack of scrutiny that Lewis has been placed under in this whole sorry debacle.
Interesting statements regarding Gatland , which i think everyone would agree with , but how can posters on here agree your sentiments ,yet critasize posters when people like Mark Jones , Ieuan Evans and Mcclusker are rightfully villafied...What i say reading your comments , that there are huge number of hypocrites who post on here these days who alter the goal posts when it suits them ...dont you feel

People are also allowed to disagree. Vehemently even. That would constitute Free Speech by most definitions.

The idiots who gave the [beep] the job should walk as well, obviously not before the World Cup...give up their freebies after all their meagre salaries cannot cope with first class flights and five star hotels.

His legacy will take years to unravel and by then he will be a Lord and the new top man in the shambles assembly that no one cares about....perfect for him.

In 1972, Roy Bergiers scored that try and said "that was for you lofty"

Interesting policy from the BBC on this morning's phone in. All callers (with the exception of one) were very supporting I'd Saint Roger Lewis. Dissenters only had their emails read out. The one caller against Roger was put up against Graham Clutton and another Lewis supporter. The phone-in was appalling, especially Clutton who obviously wants to get a room with Lewis.
So sickly that it was made of treacle.

I complained to the BBC about the make up of the panel. Was an appalling show.

Graham Clutton does some work for the WRU and his wife is employed by them.

So a very impartial 'commentator'.

Clubs that pay players below the premiership don't get any WRU funding anymore and the after match dinners and end of season dinners are no longer the free on the house affairs that they used to be.

Might want to compare the language and aggression on those threads compared to this one and it might give an indicator why they're being greeted differently.

Although I'm not convinced a few comments from a pundit and a mistake from a player in a game compare the Rogers reign over the past decade.

Interesting that Gatland feels he's "probably" affected from Lewis's departure.

Clubs that declare that they pay players below the premiership do not get any funding. Narberth is one example.

If Wales don't get out of the group stage, I think Gatland will leave
