Tinkler, who will not be owner of the Newcastle Knights for much longer, is fast becoming one of the most hated people in Newcastle after appearing to be the regions white knight in terms of the ongoing survival of the regions sporting teams.
This of course all comes on the back of news that Knights staff and players were not being paid, something that has supposedly been sorted out for now.
Nathan Tinkler needs to walk away from the Knights. At this point his reputation is taking a hammering from all corners, with even former supporters like Matthew Johns telling him to hand the club over.
