I think you are very naive. These people moved the club 85 miles away at no notice with zero regard for the existing fan base.Why I am naive?
Cov fans on the whole I would assume are loyal to Cov and wouldn't go and watch Wasps anyway. Wasps bosses must know this anyway.
There are some Cov fans though that do go to both. Best solution all round is for Wasps not to impinge upon Cov Rugby. The more Wasps annoy City and Cov Rugby, the more resentment they are going to get.
For instance, if Wasps said they were going to kick City out of the Ricoh, then there would be protests a plenty and calls to boycott etc. Wasps would be pretty stupid to set out to destroy Cov Rugby, but enticing all their fans away.
The move itself means CRFC will NEVER get to be a Premier Rugby club -- then they would be rivals.
Wasps want to maximise shareholder values. CRFC are an irrelevance to them. Its like saying a Tescos superstore opened in a small town and it would show concern for the corner shop that always served the local community.
If they kicked the football club out they would use the media to ensure it was all the clubs fault -- "yes we really value CCFC but we had to increase the rental agreement as the prior agreement is a loss maker and our shareholders will not, however hard we have tried, be prepared to accept the losses this is incurring. Its with a heavy heart...."
Yes you are very naive.
