What is to be expected for Lions and Kings.

Kings will not sign big names. How can they sign any sort of real talent with at very best a 1 year deal?
Kings will lose every single game in S15. It's a proven fact that new team coming into S15 are lucky to walk away with a single win in their first year. The Kings are arguably the weakest side ever to enter, with not even one notable name.
Lions will lose sponsorship, management, staff and players. This will put them even a worse position then they are currently.
Bulls, Cheetahs, Sharks and Stormers should all grow "stronger". With management, staff and players all up for grabs.
SANZA will not allow a 16th team. S15 format is locked in until 2015. They will not go changing that format just to solve this joke of a mess SARU has caused themselves.
There will now be an extra 2 games in 2013. SARU needs to fit in a "play off" awkwadly next year, that will have no ties to Currie Cup or Vodacom Cup, but magically have some relationship to S15.
Wonder how we decide who plays this "play off" in 2014?
What happens if the Lions fall off the wagon completely this season?
What happen if the Lions go on to lift the Currie Cup trophy again?
The only winner is SARU. Who will now do not have to fork out that R45 million to EP.
The only reason this vote went ahead in the first place.
