NRL Rich List - which clubs are raking it in?

The licence for the Raiders is owned by Canberra District Rugby League Football Club Limited, an entity with revenues of more than $92 million last season thanks to a network of leagues club throughout the nation’s capital and surrounding areas.

The spiral of silence refers to the idea that when people fail to speak, the price of speaking rises. As the price to speak rises, still fewer speak out, which further causes the price to rise, so that fewer people yet will speak out, until a whole culture or nation is silenced. This is what happened in Germany.

If you do not speak, you are not being neutral, but are contributing to the success of the thing you refuse to name and condemn.
