I’m more concerned by how much love the journos that seem to hate the game have for him. I’m very nervous why news ltd like the man so much!
Last week he did a number of interviews about the nrl in front of a nsw Racing banner ffs!
yeah i don't trust him at all. He seems like a News ltd puppet hired to push Greenberg out. Makes me like Greenberg if anything...
Being Chairman of the NRL is unlikely to be a high paid position. Like him or not, V'Landys is well connected with people in positions of power on "both sides of the aisle" as they say in politics. It is why he is so secure at RacingNSW as its CEO.
I'm prepared to wait and see regarding his stewardship in the job as Chairman of the ARLC.
If you want a Chair who has no sporting links but is good in their job and well connected, then you will have to pay for it as unless they are personally rich with an abiding love of the game, you won't find someone willing to do it for nothing.
As to the media questioning it, a few did, but remember News Ltd own most of the print journals in our capital cities, and those that aren't (e.g. Sydney Morning Herald, The Age) are now owned by Nine Entertainment who also own Channel 9.
Why is V'landys still in charge of NSW racing? Is it not odd.
Why is the media not questioning this?
Could you imagine if John Grant, who was attacked for driving a sports car, or Dave Smith were wearing two hats?
