What the hell happened to these guys....

Looks like their finances have imploded since dropping out of the Top14 and they've snowballed downwards. Its only as far back as 2010 that they made the HC/CC final losing by 2 points to Toulouse.

A few other clubs should probably take note of this

Not the first - won't be the last.
Professional sport demands both on and off field competent organisation.

Does any team, Pro12 aside, deserve to be in the top domestic tier regardless?

The fact that Serge Kampf died in March (Cap Gemini E&Y founder, Long time shareholder and sugar daddy of BO and French rugby) might have something to do with this. Still they were already in big financial trouble last year...should really have merged with Bayonne, stubborn Basque Smile
