He has done an amazing job in racing. He has increased prizemoney to levels that we have never seen before and has introduced new races that are now becoming world wide races like the Everest and the Golden Eagle. He has bought properties around the state where retired horses can be retrained so that they have a life after racing He saw a need for more under 35 year old people to go to the races and made it more friendly for them.
If he sees a need to fix up ovals he will find a way to get the money and then do the job he says he will.
He is a gun, a mover and I shaker. Our spring carnival now rivals Victoria’s. Let’s hope he is true to his word. Massive upgrade on Warren Beatty.

New ARLC supremo V'landys confident next TV deal will rise from $1.8 billion

The NSW Government is spending $2 billion to upgrade the ageing stadia network. V’Landys said suburban grounds won’t be forgotten and that he is seeking additional funding for them, with Manly’s Brookvale Oval a priority.

“Everyone knows my love for tribalism and suburban grounds,” he said.

“We want suburban grounds and we want to have the must-haves ... all the things customers want. We will be looking very hard at suburban grounds and how do we fund suburban grounds.”

I think it was Brent Read who then asked about Bankwest vs Brookie and Big V gave a more detailed vision on how he was going to get us more moneys from Gladys :happy:

New ARLC chairman shoots down relocation – The Roar

V’landys also confirmed upgrading Manly’s dilapidated Brookvale Oval is a high priority and will be the first suburban stadium the ARLC will focus on using his contacts in government, ideally, “tomorrow”.

“Brookvale Oval needs urgent attention,” he said.


“I will use my relationships with government in looking at the suburban grounds. That’s of high priority for me because I believe tribalism is an important element in our game, and in order to have tribalism you need to give people venues and facilities.



“We need to drive that tribalism with fans and make them more parochial, and make them want to follow a team, but there’s no good doing it with a bad experience at a bad ground with rotten toilets and no food and beverage, the ground’s not safe. All of that needs to be fixed.”

Once he does, will you change this Thread to 'Grrreat start ....' :rofl:

I was just flicking through the News channels yesterday and happened to hear the only issue that interested me - Brookie :happy:

I've never heard anyone at the NRL say anything constructive let alone prioritise the old girl. Then the tweet about the TurBros was released.

Agree. Almost everytime Todd Greenburg speaks a sentence with the word 'Manly' in it, we lose. I was quite taken aback by his brookie comments. Early days, just words etc. but hopefully he follows through as his reputation suggests he will.

How refreshing was it to hear that Manly/Brookie is a focus for the NRL.

Understanding it is all just words at this stage but he really has highlighted more key issues facing the game right now in his few minutes in his first press conference than Greenflog and Beatoff have done in their entire duration with the NRL. In fact he’s even pushing the opposite with his redevelopment of suburban grounds rather than than the two twits and their large rectangular stadia plan.

What a shame he wasn’t in power a couple of years back and what the NrL could have done (to suburban grounds) with the $1billion they are wasting on the redevelopment of ANZ.

I think I’m excited about where the game is headed for the first time in decades.
Now he just needs to get rid of Greenberg and that would be the best Xmas present for all NrL followers.

As mentioned on this forum by more that a few. The northern beaches and north shore is loosing ground to AFL with the juniors at a pretty steady rate. I know on the north shore that Rugby numbers are very down with my old club whom used to have 4 grades now only fielding one.
Where as the AFL team from the next suburb is growing. As a kid I loved both League and Rugby as did all the boys at school. You played both at any opportunity you got and most of the kids either played or watched.
If the NRL keep ignoring north of the bridge, they will lose a large area that is very affluent and will be making decisions about sports, community and business. With the next generations of kids that become the decision makers it would be nice to have them as fans like were and voiced our opinions.

Big V could cross promote with his racing gig and rename Brookie to 'Golden Eagle' :lightbulb:

I love old girl, but it's time for a complete new stadium.
25k under cover seating something similar to Bankwest.
It would be a massive asset to the northern beaches, hopefully the big V gets it done.

Just throwing it out there but got to wonder if this is why the Centre of Excellence has been held up...? Maybe with more funding the design may change.

Gorman and Vlandys on the task now so hopefully Brookie gets some deserved upgrades.

Good start in my books. He hit on 3 points that most league fans agree with.

1. prefers one referee and agrees refereeing is the biggest problem with the game.
2. no teams to be relocated.
3. Brookie upgrade and a focus on tribalism
Love to know the arguments lodged for the 2 Refs by the rest of the attendees :wondering:

The Rep games have all been free flowing and none of the Refs has never made the front pages :cool:

Too much nit picking and not enough first grade level Refs should have pushed the ARLC to revert to a single referee

I’ll give him another week. If he’s not spotted having breakfast with Greenphlem or Uncle Nick, I’ll change it. :p

I put parentheses around the 'not' part. Lemme know if you want them removed. :)

The breakfast may simply have been to tell those two that their unfettered reign is coming to an end. Which would be a civilised way to operate. #changethethreadtitle
