Amazing outburst from the mini magnate as he looks to see A-League club the Jets.
The ugly break-up between mining magnate Nathan Tinkler and the Newcastle Knights has continued with the former owner saying the city has done nothing but “shit on him.”
Tinkler’s extraordinary attack comes on the back of a statement saying he will not own another sporting club, with his verbal barbs set to open old wounds.
“I’ve been very good to Newcastle,’’ Tinkler said. “But that place hasn’t done anything but shit on me.
“I was disappointed with the way the team (Knights) went this year, the same as everyone was, Wayne (Bennett) was.
“But I didn’t manage that team, I didn’t choose who to recruit, and I got sick of being blamed for it to tell you the truth and that became the catalyst for me to drop that.
“The Newcastle Jets are for sale, as well, I can’t wait to get them out the door, too.’’
The racing kingpin also said he would be looking to simplifying his involvement in that sport as well, admitting he tried to grow too much too soon despite advice given to him.
“I said recently that there will be no racing stables or football teams in my future and I stand by that,’’ Tinkler said. “I got a bit sick of funding other people’s playthings and being blamed when they didn’t work out.’’
“I’m looking forward to simplifying my life greatly.
“There will definitely be no more involvement with footy teams. But horses don’t talk anywhere near as much as people.
“I’m sure I can still enjoy racing again one day but on a much smaller scale.”
