Really coz it looks like communism right now, they all get the same portion of funds, spread it out to each staff, player, dont pay for travel, dont pay medical, basically everything is set out as if it was communism... all hail Piotr Vlad Landys

Travel costs was one of the big factors that lead to Super League. In fact the NRL paying travel costs was one of the major changes that occurred with the settlement from the SL war which all clubs were happy with (both ARL and SL aligned alike).

It was only an issue for Perth and maybe the cowboys

for Penrith dogs and sharks it was to survive the Sydney cull

for Canberra it was to stop easts signing Bradley Clyde

It was an issue at the very least for the Broncos, the Cowboys, Western Reds and the Warriors. With the last 3 they had to pay the transportation costs for all visiting teams as part of their licences when they were admitted to the ARL Competition in 1995, whilst the Broncos had been banging on about the cost for its travels every second week for a few years prior. Canberra were far more muted about it, but they did (iirc) also say it was a contributing factor for them going to Super League.

Nah broncos were scared they were going to get kicked out of the arl

also wanted to use powers as a sponsor vs xxxx and wanted to host a grand final in Brisbane plus other arguments about money

Mike Coleman’s book on super league mentions causes and travel costs werent a major factor

Glad that white elephant proposed by Stuart Ayres will never see the light of day.

So yeah, that tribalism so paramount to Sydney clubs is going just splendidly.

Doesn’t seem like PVL can deliver on any of NRL’s infrastructure demands to NSW Government.

To be fair if I remember it correctly (fair chance I’m wrong on some parts) the plan was originally a rebuilt SFS & Olympic Stadium. From memory after SFS was confirmed as going first the NRL’s preference went to “suburban strategy” of upgrades to several grounds instead of a rebuilt rectangular 75-80k Stadium Australia.

That suburban strategy looks to have resulted in a partial rebuild of one stadium and it looks like it will be stuff all else. We could have been watching the Grand Final from a state of the art 80k rectangular stadium this year but instead Penrith will get half done. Pretty disappointing result.

NRL vows to splash further $250m on assets after $20m Shire purchase​

ByAdrian Proszenko

The NRL has vowed to invest a further $250 million in revenue-generating assets after purchasing a hotel adjacent to Cronulla’s home ground for an estimated $20 million.
The Australian Rugby League Commission announced on Tuesday the acquisition of the Quest Woolooware Bay Hotel, 14 months after it bought Brisbane’s Gambaro Hotel on Caxton Street for a reported $30 million.
There was no price disclosed for the latest investment, a strata hotel set over three floors with up to 71 rooms situated on Captain Cook Drive. However, market estimates value the hotel, which is scheduled to commence operations in late October, at $20 million.
“What became obviously clear during Covid was that we were on the cliff’s edge because we had no assets,” said ARLC chairman Peter V’landys.

“If ever there is another crisis like Covid, we need to be better prepared. Having an asset base is crucial. It’s not a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have.
“Strategically, [Woolooware] has a lot of benefits, it’s next to Shark Park. It’s a massive growing area, there’s not much accommodation in the area. The best thing about it is it has a long-term lease with Quest, so we don’t have to do anything, we let the building appreciate in value whilst receiving money off a blue-chip client.”
V’landys revealed that $300 million would be set aside to purchase assets after striking an agreement with the Rugby League Players’ Association.

The Australian Rugby League Commission (ARLC) has purchased the newly built Quest Woolooware Bay, Sydney.

“There is more to come,” V’landys said. “One of the gestures of the RLPA, which I appreciated, was they allowed us in the CBA to future-proof the game by getting $300 million worth of assets before they shared in any gains.

“I want to compliment the RLPA and the players for agreeing to that. That is one of the great concessions they provided during the negotiations. We are in partnership with the players in future-proofing the game.

“There are a number of other assets we have an eye on. We will build up $300 million, so if there is a good proposition, we will look at it. We did our due diligence on this one and Gambaro has already been a success and will only get better.”
CBRE’s Michael Simpson and Vasso Zographou brokered the Woolooware sale on behalf of property group Novm.
“This acquisition represents an astute purchase by the Australian Rugby League Commission as it continues to grow its property portfolio,” Simpson said.

“The hotel is adjacent to the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks home ground PointsBet Stadium and is part of the $1 billion Woolooware Bay Town Centre mixed-use development. This was a demand driver in the sale, as well as the distance to Cronulla beach.”

And if no one leases the shops out?

Hotel's particularly in Cronulla are very limited, So should be booked solid
