NZRU: How to destroy a franchise

Say you have the most successful franchise in history. Say that, for whatever reason, you want to destroy it. What steps would you take?

First, the coach should leave. Leave no chance to your coach to stay in your franchise.
Second, give your star player a year off.
Third, cut one of the two provincial unions that feed this franchise off so you drain the flow of players into the franchise.

Can Canterbury face Wellington, Taranaki, Manawatu and Hawkes Bay at the same time? I guess next season I will be cheering the Crusaders more than ever.

It's good to see that you have come around to the Crusaders. Funny, I'm going for Wellington after the departure of Deans.
The Crusaders, as always, will be in the thick of it, even if the KIWIS LOSE the 3N.
