Jacky Lorenzetti’s Editorial – The 2013-2014 season recruitment


Dear Friends, dear supporters, dear partners


I would like to talk about the rainbow colors.


First of all the rain. Even though this 2012-2013 season finished with a nice quarter final play off game, we figured out during our loss in Toulouse, a lack of plum. Facing a noble Stade Toulousain, our Racing team delivered a match imaging their whole season, where the good, or even the great didn’t stop changing hands with the bad plays. I’m convinced that the Racing which managed to defeat Toulon, Clermont and Montpellier could have gone further in the competition.


Between the rain drops of this last Toulouse’s shower, we will note that, it is our fourth consecutive year in which we are qualified for the Top 14 play-offs, and that also we will compete the very prestigious HCup. No other team coming from Pro D2 signed such a performance. Since four season, our rival of the Stade Français are off of these marvelous confrontations amongst the European rugby elite.


Even if my wish of providing ambition and a new state of mind to the Racing is already a converted try, I do not intend to stop there. During two seasons in Pro D2, then four seasons in Top 14, we fought amongst the best and I really want now to defeat the bests. The win, always the win!


A new page in the Racing’s history will again be written with new players, new staff leaders. I would like to thank those who will leave us and who brought so much during these six seasons of reconstruction. Pierre Berbizier, Pascal Valentini and Simone Santamaria managed to rebuild the sports sector. Their work actions will remain an important cornerstone of our structure.


I also thank all our players who fought bravely over this fastidious transition season. I have special thoughts for the ones who has worn the Racing’s jersey since the last six seasons, in fact since the beginning, and who will now leave us. Johnny Leo'o, Sireli Bobo, Andrea Lo Cicero, Mika Tuugahala, Alvaro Galindo, Santiago Dellape, we won’t forget you.


On the peach or outside of it, I wish all the best to whom that will not share our daily lifes.


I thank all of our fans. The loyal and devoted ones who were only hundreds became thousands and this is shorely just the beginning… I was wrong in wishing more fury from you all to support our team, I have enjoyed once the rumblings and whistles going towards the opponent striker but I shouldn’t done. Supporters, dear fans, do not change! You are the most fair play spectators of all France. You applaud where everyone else whistles harshly. At home, no referees are badly insulted. I am proud of our smart Racing(wo)men.


Finally, I would like to thank my wife, my children, my family and my close relatives who help me, day by day, game after game, in assuming with passion this tough fight of the presidency of a great rugby club.


A season pass away and here comes the rising sun shining once more.


The 2013-2014 season is now starting. You will find below the names of the men which will wear our colors and make us dream through all rugby year. As the shades of rainbows, wide are the range of colors and backgrounds. Irish green or south African green, welsh red or biarrots red, Brive black or zimbabwes black, Castres blue and Georgian white… Racing Metro 92 is a worldwide open minded club. Here, in the club, humanism and brotherhood are values old of 131 years.


With humility, also with fortitude, you can count on my straight will of wearing the Racing’s values at the very top. I will ensure the excellence of results from our professional team so as the success of our youth whom all teams qualified for the play-offs of their own championships.


I will not amaze anyone in concluding thereby : Through all the rainbow colors, it is still the “Ciel et Blanc” that I shorely prefer.


Go go Racing! Go go the 2013-2014 season!



Jacky Lorenzetti.

Every team will need to regenerate their players. If not, it will be hard to follow the competition standard.

I agree that it should not be legal to check the cdreit rating. A person's CR has absolutely nothing to do with driving ability. Check out the driver ability of some of those in the fancier cars. And to the previous poster not sure what state you are fortunate to live in, but in my state and EVERY OTHER STATE I have ever lived in, you are required BY LAW to have insurance, at least liability. So, are the government and insurance companies in with each other? You tell me.

Lois you approach your ceaerr as a real professional ceaerr and market yourself as such. Smart girl. I think often people in arts either just wait for something to come to them, or decide OK I am going to do it myself then . Nothing wrong with either of those but some good hard job hunting increases the network for all of the options . getting hired, having something fall in your lap because more people know your lap is out there, and for DIY because more people know you are good and willing to work.Keep up the good work.

While it's a good idea to pay all your bills in a timely maennr, things like your insurance, rent, utilities, etc don't report timely payment to the credit bureaus and don't impact your credit score.

the only thing i can think of is make sure it is coverage for life. some cut you off at a caeirtn age or your payout is less when you hit a caeirtn age. like if it is for 50k, when you turn 65 or 70, that amounts drops.
