    We don't need completely separate boards. We need the best 7 (or however many) directors on each board working in unison and they could be the same people or some people on both boards or whatever. In terms of the football side it doesn't take many qualifications. Know the rules, don't be merkin in media, sign quality people to the executive roles & then just be "friendly" with the club stakeholders. Can almost guarantee Politis knew next to nothing about operating a football club when he joined Roosters, but he is very very good at those last two points

    Who's we kemosabe?

    That sort of hidden agenda factionalism is what makes us sick.

    f**k off with your political donkey and re- fighting lost elections past and certainly don't try to cloak is with your petty vindictive feuds.

    Ps this was responding to the phantom bar not 84

    I can't wait for the next post pretending to be anti factional which is actually aimed at White a ting one of the factions

    We really look close to moving forward.

    Then for every two of those we get another brain dead chorus of "we can't appoint outsiders" and "parra people know best"

    No they don't. Years of self interest and incompetence have guaranteed mediocrity and infighting.

    It has to change and change now.

    I reckon NRL should just order Shane Richardson (at least he's proven) to be our CEO

    So one plan I have proposed is to elect a 7 man PLC Board from the best we can find and with a strong focus on running a $100M Gaming business. This should not be football focused fans who simply want to be part of the footy "in-crowd".

    Only 3 of the PLC Board get to go onto the PNRL Board at anyone time and these should be selected by the 7 Board members, but endorsed by the PLC AGM each year. These 3 allow the PLC to make sure their financial contribution is managed well.

    2 of the remaining 4 spots on the PNRL Board come from NRL nominated independent people which meets the demand of the NRL from the Governance review.

    1 of the remaining 2 comes from the Parramatta District Junior Clubs (such as Rhinos, Hills Bulls, Wenty, etc) and is not elected but nominated by the junior clubs each year. This gives the Juniors a say in how the money they get is spent and helps them get a focus from the PNRL club.

    The last of the spots goes to a popular vote by the B&G Army membership and could be anyone that nominates (ex-player/coach/local celebrity/whomever) and this election could be held on-line allowing non-locals to vote (this is not governed by the Registered Clubs Act which precludes online or proxy voting).

    This is one way to remove the factions and keep them away and if only 3 of the PLC Board get to go on the NRL Board it will stop us getting the wrong people on the PLC Board to start with.

    I am sure there are other options - this is just my model.

    WhIle I would like to see the response to the breaches , in case they do have an answer to the charges and points deduction, the club needs to act

    Despite differences in the past, plenty of them, , BF is correct. The club needs to have an independent process of suitable qualified independent nominees , willing to pursue a board position to take the club forward and in the process dismiss the factionalism to a place in should not recover from

    If there is a requirement for 4 persons to move to the PNRL board, the remaining 3 should also be able to nominate and interviewed in a similar manner, even to the point of stating their case in front of the PLC board.

    The club is a powerhouse and should have people prepared to ensure that position is enhanced, not only by ongoing improvement in the PLC ( the new development is obviously crucial and needs to be well managed), but by ensuring there remains a nexus with the PNRL

    I doubt that the people needed to do this job will want to be on a ticket and be subject to innuendo and pressure from factions and we know best individuals, to be frank the club needs to grasp the opportunity and elect independent board, and appoint a strong CEO to the PNRL asap...

    Again, I ask the question, who would contribute what the Leagues Club currently contributes to the football club, if the NRL is running the football club?

    What authority does the NRL have to order another club to provide our club with a CEO?

    Sounds good. With the 2 "independent" spots I'd change it to the nominations committee model, with that committee made up of NRL & Parra people. That way NRL can still monitor our directorship but we still have say in who is running the club

    Mate are you out of your freaking mind, ''the last spot goes to popular vote from the BNG army, could be an ex coach, player, celebrity''
    Do you want this club to stay a basket case for ever?
    Are you taking the piss?

    Agree with you here mate, its all too little to late but at least Geoff is trying to do the right thing, he's attempting to put the club first and he's getting bagged for it, he's taking some responsibility and people are whinging.

    He has to say it by himself because the other 3 will fight to the death to clear their reputations, there is never going to be a group announcement, the other 3 will never admit they were wrong so people can't blame him for going it alone, well done to Geoff

    Mate 1 out of 7 directors is such a small minority that it wouldn't make it a basket case and it appeases the 20,000+ members of the NRL club (i.e the B&G Army) who don't otherwise get any say in who is involved in running their football club.

    So you think that the NRL would just replace every cent that the Leagues Club provides the NRL Team?

    In answer to this and your earlier question, the thing I suggested about a month ago was for the NRL to guarantee funding equal to the average net contribution of the Leagues Club over the past 3 years. This is nothing like the $8m being bandied about in the press, because the NRL Grant to Leagues Club is being treated as a revenue of the Leagues Club (as are gate receipts). It seems more in the order of $1.5-$2m. Then appoint some bloke like John Quayle in a chair role and call for tenders for a small mgmt team to run the operation, with the key guys having incentive compo built-in with respect to improvement onfield and off-field performance. At the end of X years, the PLC have the right to match the best offer for the NRL franchise.

    The big problem with my plan is current player contracts, which are with the Parra NRL Club (presumably) and cannot be assigned without express agreement.


    But in terms of funding.....yeh, the NRL up to a pre-determined limit. And obviously the delineation of responsibility for Juniors etc would also have to be thought through.

    Barry, is your thinking that we should have our licence revoked by the NRL?
    Have they done this to any other club before?
