Which part bummy? That Balmain leagues closed in 2008? That Balmain has only 2 board members out of 9? That Wests Ashfied are 90% owners of Wests Tigers? That Balmain leagues hardly invested in the football club?
Read Roy's beautiful article bummy. Explains all. The 2019 development was a 'takeover' not a merger. The Wests side charitably took 'em in. They could of just let 'em die and lose everything but decided for the sake of the football club to keep their name alive. They then paid off their debts with the vague hope that the developers of the derelict old club site would build 'em a new Balmain Leagues club and hand it back to 'em. Hasn't happened. Doubtful it ever will. Balmain Leagues contributed next to nothing to Wests Tigers.
Now point out what in my previous post was not true pal. And stop being so obsessive. It just makes ya look silly bummy.

Id say that it depends on your view - but reality is it was a merger. They could have let them die. They didnt.
Let it go of your obsessions mate. Let it go.
Oh dear!!! Your off the dial lately pal. Give it away. Your just making a fool of yaself!!!
