As a previous poster pointed out, the Boards of most NRL clubs have experienced or currently experience factionalism. The Bulldogs with seven Directors are reported to have three active factions among those seven and they are always at one anothers throats. However, there is openness and a semblance of democracy. Google the Bulldogs Board of Directors and up comes a photograph of the seven Directors and who is what on the Board. They hold elections every two years so at least members can pass judgement on their performance. Good luck getting similar information about the SGI Board. There seems to be an obsession with secrecy. There is an urgent need for a new more democratic Board constitution to allow for at least one Director to be directly appointed by members. This club will simply not survive unless its members feel that the Board is more accountable and open to scrutiny- particularly given the rampant nepotism underpinning past appointments.
