The NRL recently announced $3 million National Footy Facilities Funds to non-heartland areas is long overdue. This is something the administration should have focused on a long time ago.
Last I checked rugby league is a team sport. While the individual brilliance of the best rugby league players are highlighted weekly within the rugby league community, the introduction of a camera to focus on an individual player is jumping the shark when it comes to rugby league.
With the NSW Government announcing $1.6 billion in stadium development, rugby league benefits massively through the development of ANZ and Parramatta into modern rectangular stadiums.
When newly appointed CEO Todd Greenberg ruled out expansion, once again rugby league is the code that stands still while other codes are willing to expand their national footprint.
The very idea of the Gold Coast Bears is laughable. If it was to come to existence, you might as well thrown in the towel and give the Gold Coast to the AFL.
With Dave Smith gone, it seems that the power-brokers and the media finally got their wish with CEO’s departure. From the beginning, Smith had an uphill battle to gain support from the rugby league community because he wasn’t a ‘league man’.
