A light arises
Cast aside the disorder
Settled in time
the players have ended up with around 75% of their annual salary this year. Pretty sweet given the situation.
My god Wade Graham sounds like a dumbarse.
Is he really our best and brightest?
Am I reading it right that they've sacked 95% of the NRL staff.... but the exec team is only taking a 25% pay cut?
That is truly the most disgraceful act. How many more employees could they have afforded to keep on if those dickheads took a bigger hit? Greenberg alone is on $1.2 million. Had he chopped that down to a mere $200K they could have saved a dozen employees the chop.
Normal behaviour in corporate land I’m afraid. Seen company execs (on 7 figure salaries) wipe out a shit load of mainly junior level and mid weight staff to balance the books in tough times. Then get a bonus for meeting their fiscal targets.
At first glance it is hard to fathom but then you could factor in that the CEO etc are actually still working. Maybe even harder than they otherwise would have been (I could be wrong about that) whereas the staff in other rolls probably just aren't needed at the moment.
I think the Swineflu only affected the pig racing industry.
Doubt V'landys has anything to do with a multi-trillion dollar industry like that
I just sent my application (with resume of my great idea threads) in by email to the NRL to be part of the Season Innovation Committee. I'll let youse know when I get a reply.
well yeah, they have to make their own coffee and possibly even answer their own phones now
I don’t give a f**k how hard they are working. They should all be taking zero salary to avoid layoffs right now. If they realise by the end of the season that there is excess fat to be trimmed, so be it. But not now.
It is disgraceful leadership, it’s insanely bad PR, and if there is any justice they’ll all lose their jobs.
Imagine being a fringe first grader on $80K with a partner and young child who’s now taken a 50% pay cut and is looking for fruit picking or shelf stacking work to keep the rent paid while Greenberg and co are still making fat 6 figure salaries.
So are the Roosters only cutting the official salaries?
Deep breath in......and.....................hold
To be fair to Tod he is saving for a pinky toe ring for Cam's mrs that he will now need to pay for out of his own pocket. Once he has enough for that be might be more inclined to take a cut.
So the league now only has 75% eyeballing at ita disposal?
No he isn't, there are a few smart sounding guys. However, the culture is still to sound as dumb as possible around the boys. The NRL has done a bad job of explaining to them that they would make more money if they ditched that culture.
Tangalooma may be the answer says Chris Johns.
No different to any other large business that has stood down staff with no pay, Myer, Virgin, Qantas etc I bet the Execs of those companies didn’t take a hit.
Why should NRL be any different ? why should NRL player contracts be more valuable than any other worker ?
