    Sounds a bit like what FIFA did with Warner and Bin Hammam.

    If anyone here likes football they'll know what I mean.

    Well you're regularly wrong with your analysis and referring to the media as one giant beast doesn't help your cause.

    :?

    You're kidding aren't you?
    The media are out there to sell papers and get ratings, whichever form it eminates from.
    They are a giant beast.
    The price on carbon issue is a perfect example.

    I hope the board issue a statement on the findings of the report so that Ozzies name can be cleared.

    They all did. But imo that doesn't mean anyone should feel put upon not to express a critical opinion about them if they see fit.

    I know I'm free to pass comment PP, regardless of what you think of my internet persona. And right back at you with people being free to pass comment on your comments (not you personally). Your comments just come across with a very negative approach to people who state opinions that differ from yours (including the choice to regularly play the person and not the ball), so it does come across as an attempt to reduce discussion and differing opinions.

    My memory for internet comments from 2 years ago during our run to the grand final isn't as strong as yours, I'm afraid, so I don't understand your comment.

    In its current state, the rugby league media will. But I think that's largely irrelevant to most fans/members, and we see through it. For me, after some years of doubt about our processes (under both "sides"), it's more about growing the confidence that things are being done above board, in an open, accountable and communicated way.

    Again, the result is irrelevant imo. Like all of the names you mentioned at the top of your post, Osborne has done some good things, and some bad things while in the role. And so will any successor that might come along. But imo we should all feel empowered as fans/members to express opinions on the state of our club, rather than it be suggested that fans aren't qualified to have and express their (differing) opinions.

    - - - - -

    It looks like the news is in (post #912, media release), and Osborne's safe in the position? Despite Massoud's tweet :roll:, here's hoping now it's a positive year ahead behind the scenes at the club, with as little avoidable disruption as possible.

    Fair post bart.

    As for Osborne, I don't really care either way. A friend of mine met him and thought he was an arrogant prick, which seems to be a common criticism of him.

    But that doesn't mean he can't do the job. I've work with a lot of arrogant pricks and most of them were good at their jobs. Other people's experience may differ.

    For those complaining about the heat, the southerly should arrive sometime between 9 PM and midnight, depending on where you live in the Sydney basin.
