Honestly don't know where to start with that post.
All I can say is:
You better hope to hell that the person who runs your sport doesn't think the same as you.

Still seems better than Gallop. What Benchy was referring to has to do with understanding the commercial importance of expanding your fan base. Not whether he knows the players.
Hiring a bloke with executive and business experience seemed a step in the right direction.
The RL Commission already has plenty of business heads on it
You need somebody who has a feel for the game, and also has a good business head
Besides, the big business deal - the TV rights - has already been done for the next five years
And the thing I like about Demetriou is that he can provide public leadership, public direction regarding on-field issues, because he knows the game
He can go to a press conference and answer questions about the MRP, and about the sliding rule - because he knows the game. He can hose issues down.
How can Dave Smith go to a press conference and provide any leadership or direction, or hose down the current obstruction rule which is currently engulfing rugby league
Yes, you need to know business, but you also need an in-depth understanding of the game, and a feel for what matters to fans and players

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Anyway as we've said in the past, we will see.
