Reckon its great for the game that the week 1 finals are taking place in 4 different states/territories.
All 4 games have some sort of rivalry which makes it interesting, ANZ and Dairy Farmers should have big crowds especially.
- Dogs vs Manly = Hasler
- Cows vs Broncos = big QLD derby, no real hate though.
- Storm vs Rabbits = Inglis, Crocker, McGuire, Storm influence
- Raiders vs Sharks = Carney are probably bigger is Ferguson leaving Sharks for the better team.

Gillion is smart for knocking back the NRL offer. He would have just been pillared every week in the papers and other media and would never have been accepted. Even if he was successful he would have been gunned down.
Never had a chance. Stay in Melbourne and become the next CEO once the great Demetriou heads off.
Also lol @ Roy Masters saying the NRL should head hunt Demetriou.
On point, the CEO should be the best person for the job. A background in RL would be a bonus, but if there's no one available from inside the ranks we shouldn't pick a sub par candidate just for the sake of it.
But you're right, it would be easier for this bloke to work in an environment where the media doesn't question what you do. All hail Vlad the great!

Is it fair to say that it's a massive struggle to get a "rugby league person" without them having very strong ties to a club?
There doesn't seem to be strong bodies outside of the clubs that are stakeholders in the game that candidates can come from.

I think there'd be plenty of RL people that could administer the game without bias though.
