    That's the good news. (Great news, really.)
    The bad news is in this sentence: "The independent commission will undertake a world wide recruitment search to identify a new leader before the start of next season."
    Which means there's every chance they'll find another Welsh banker who knows **** all about the game to put in charge.
    Too many chiefs in the NRL, all of them dickheads.

    Tooves should put in for the job. He makes sense every time he talks about Rugby League issues.

    You'd have to think Greenbergs got the inside running , although I hear Sepp Blatter's on the shortlist.

    Fantastic news. Give him some jumping castles to help him bounce his way outta here. Though he's taking huge bags of money with him for delivering nothing.

    News tempered by the fact Greenburg may be appointed and that really spells bad news for the nrl.

    What does John Grant do? He seems to be the Julie Bishop of the nrl.

    Go Tooves!

    Two shocks in two days. First Cleary and now Smith. Hopefully the NRL will not go down the same path and get someone who has no knowledge about the game. But hopefully that person is not Greenburg or Richardson. I heard Mark Coyne's name mentioned this morning as a possible option. Apparently he has been doing well in the business world. He sounds like an ideal candidate. I am sure Toovey could do well as CEO but I just can't see it happening. It is a little too early for him after his sacking from Manly.

    Yep he has weasel'd himself in to this nicely, probably been white anting Smith from the inside as well.

    They'll choose him no doubt!

    If they promote that slime Greenturd, the game will be lost to Fans and Players alike :mad:

    Nothing will change with Smith leaving as they will take months if not years to make a replacement. As they did with organising the commission
    The Nrl will continue to run as a ruderless ship always being reactive instead of proactive

    But HM that's what they will do, you can almost stick your house on it!!

    Greenturd has been building for this for years.
