    Ok then, how the **** does a taxi driver become the CEO of an NRL franchise without the relevant tertiary qualifications that most other organisations would deem a non negotiable aspect of that role?

    One would ask the same about the CEO of Dominos and so on

    The CEO of Dominos ect would have worked their way up the corporate chain. The ability to read road signs and turn on a taxi meter, won't bring us a major sponsor I'm afraid.

    he was a legend, that was all that was needed.

    haha

    To be fair it wasn't the business it is now, when Arko was in charge. I figure it's old school management in a new business world, hard really to compare, CEO's of that era to now

    Arko had everyone's respect, plus he had friends in very high places.
    It wasn't all about corporate governance and selling million dollar sponsorship packages back then. Players were paid a pittance in comparison to modern day and the majority of that pittance came from the leagues club.
    Times have changed and so must the Sea Eagles.

    It's a well known fact that both Max Delmege and Scott Penn were taxi drivers aswell.

    These days to be successful at a job taxi driving is one of the major requirements.

    Twiggy Forrest, Clive Palmer, the Packers and Murdochs all started off as cab drivers.

    Would I be in the right thread if I refuted these comments - or should I just go back to Positive Town?

    Going by that logic perhaps we should employ a rickshaw driver as our CEO.

    To be honoust WAMF i think you are disregarding all of lowes achivements in NZ on the business front and basing your argument on no facts at all.
