With Dave Smith leaving I was wanting to think what people think of the last 3 years. Personally I think it has been pretty ordinary maybe 2 or 3 out of 10. I see the criteria of: 1) Do the people running the game understand it and have a vision for it? Answer: No way. Dave Smith to me just has never got rugby league at all. 2) Has there been a connection between those running the game and the fans? Answer: Absolutely not. Fans are becoming more and more disenfranchised that they are seen as 'customers' 3) Is there consistency? Answer: Again no way at all. There is one rule for one and one rule for others (case in point Tooves getting a $10k fine, whereas Thurston gets off scott free after claiming a 'conspiracy' against non Sydney teams. Add into this the judiciary and their rulings. 4) Is the Administration reactionary or proactive? Visionary? Answer: certainly not visionary. The policy on the run in the last couple of years is nothing short of pathetic. Changing rules constantly mid season has become nothing short of a joke. 5) Did Dave Smith surround himself with capable people? Answer: This to me is the mark of a great leader, they surround themselves with great people......Greenberg, Richardson.....need I say anymore. Which I then begs the question. Who should run the NRL?
