I’m one of those funny guys who wants to see a proposal before I shoot it down. Like you I don’t mind us having a go at it. Great for the news cycle and it’s upset all the usual negative twats who infest here so it’s already a winner from that point of view.
Funny those same twats were anti Redcliffe, Magic Round and so on.
As for the proposal, exactly any number of C grade celebrities/Athletes with a profile that love the game.
Off the Top of my head.
An ex Rabbitohs NYC player, played in the Super Bowl.
UFC have Bam Bam ( an lower grader at Penrith and Roosters), owns a brewery with Cleary
Volk - another former player
Both have contacts to sponsors etc.
Jim Jefferies - Has committed to putting money into the Bears if they get up.
Tim Tzuyzu had a world title fight against an American - promoted by George Rose.
Patty Mills loves the Broncos.
Murdoch - we know Fox's reach.
Then of course Rusty Crowe is known.
I am sure guys like Nick Politis, Cannon-Brooks and others have business links.
It isn't going to be big or anything.
Take Samoa in the World Cup, We saw particularly mormons in the US getting behind them.
Now if a few sponsors get on board through exposure, Maybe a small TV deal for tests.
Even something like $2m a year, It is huge for the game but still very very small on the US Sport scale.
That to me is the aim, Get a very very small piece of the pie but for the game is huge moving forward
