“When someone of Nick’s success says we must look at 20 teams, we’re going to look at it. And we should have a strategy to get there at a certain time, whether that’s three years, five years or 10 years.”

So lets break this down

When someone of Nick’s success says we must look at 20 teams, we’re going to look at it -
ie we're supposed to be leading the game and developing a 5 year strategy but we didnt really consider this until someone else thought it a good idea

we’re going to look at it - ie we haven't even really thought it about it yet, let alone planned anything

we should have a strategy to get there at a certain time - ie we dont have a strategy and dont know when we'll have one

whether that’s three years, five years or 10 years - ie we dont know how long it will take, if ever

So much for a turbo!

Jesus you are a whinger. You pollute these discussions with endless negativity. Do you suffer from some sort of condition? Miserablitis or something?

Perth Red is pissed off because V'landys didn't announce Perth as the next expansion team.

Do you still think Politis' opinion is important?

For months you've been pushing his pro-Perth stance while knocking PNG and Queensland 5. He's advocating for all three of those ideas.

If PNG is a lock in why did he say this I wonder?

“I think we will make a decision in the next six months. It’s hard to put an exact timeline on it, because we have to talk to a lot of people and do a lot of analysis.
“I don’t know if we will be doing a tender process like we did last time, but we will be speaking to different parties."

you've literally ignored the point of the post ie NRLs continued lack of planning and strategic approach to this. Well done.

Without Govt funding, it can't be locked in.

And to date no funding has been announced.

In six months it’ll be September and if the Wahs are sitting in the top 4 and selling out Mt Smart every second weekend that might sway their decision just a tad. If the bubble has burst, hello Perth or PNG.

I really don’t see chucking 600M at an NRL team in PNG being a vote winner for the ALP and frankly I doubt the PNG govt has 600M in the first place.
Yeh, I don't think anyone even the forum loons is expecting PNG to contribute anything to this.

So basically they still don't know what they are going to do, or by when! sigh. Heard it all before.
WTF!!! HOW ARE YOU SO NEGATIVE! pvl just said PNG 18th Perth 19th, and maybe nz2 as the last..
They probably don't have any data on it yet so 20th is up in the air

Yeah PR wants definitive timeines so he can butcher each expansion roll out as it comes.. ffs just shut up and enjoy the ride, perths coming, and its coming in as 19th, coz everyone wants the location, and theres a large percentage of RL fans that want the bears back, this helps the arlc architect a carrot for the broadcasters to pony up, if they swapped png for perth that wouldn't happen

Why? The BID is called "png bid25"
I wonder what the "25" stands for

... they are planning or have already planned to announce it in the year 2025, the 50 year independence day of PNG
...again enjoy the ride, the script is written
