not even ****, segeyaro
So the new CEO can't even name the Australian Captain
Look, I understand the need for business heads, but the Commission already lacks league nous (with only Wayne Pearce and John Grant having a background in league). Yes, league is in a sense a business, but to get the best out of the business, you need to understand the game, what grows it, and what the fans want.
In my view, the appointments have gone too far the other way - and this is reflected in the TV deal they brokered earlier this year (with only one FTA game for the next five years, a real lack of daytime football, and no relief for the representative players in terms of the State of Origin timing etc).

And the thing I like about Demetriou is that he can hose down day to day bushfires in the game (e.g. judiciary, interchange, flooding etc.) because he understands the sport. He can answer both business-related questions and very importantly day-to-day issues that arise in the actual game itself. All told, he provides public direction on matters on field and off.
What a bad draw, so many things I disagree with.
- Broncos getting so many Friday night matches is annoying, even as a Bronco supporter.
- Raiders only getting 1 Free to Air game
- Panthers and Knights getting none - Not that FTA is that amazing, only 1/3 is live
- Manly 7 Monday Night matches is a joke.
There are other issues too but those are the ones I've noticed at first glance.
Well that's nearly 500k a year saved.

#408. Sixty three not out forever.
Fully supporting the players Re the salary cap increase
Bigger TV deal than the AFL
Yet, divide our $5 million cap by 30
And the $9 million AFL cap by 40
benefit of the doubt gone.
so this is the last post i'll make in here #noreasontopost

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
You'd think it'd get old but it just doesn't.
Very sad to hear about the passing of Jon Mannah. He was on the footy show with his brother a few years back and I remember thinking to myself what a nice family they were. Seemed like genuinely great people.
