    An It consultant as head of a rugby league game. He obviously thinks that he is on a never ending budget.

    This guy is another example of 'big business' which the NRL thinks it now is. They hire fellow corporate cronies on huge salaries who do nothing.
    I don;t recall this guy doing anything yet for the NRL, but is probably raking in many hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.
    You are pathetic, NRL. Cut down on these bloated figureheads and hire some hard-working lovers of the sport.

    Obviously all the similar jobs in the banks were taken so he had to settle for the NRL job.

    Sounds like the knives are out for him and Smith from the majority of clubs and he won't be extended and hopefully Smith goes with him.

    I don't particularly care if an administrator has ever pulled on a boot.

    If an ex-league player was very good at playing league doesn't necessarily mean that person is a good administrator.

    What we need is good business decisions-making and getting away from the chook-raffle mentality.

    We need to have an administration that recognises the fans for without them there would be no league.

    We need transparency and excellent ethics that many seem to say are missing at the moment.
