    It shouldn’t mean anything because Voda and Telstra are network providers. Huawei is a vendor of hardware to both companies.

    yeh thankfully public pressure has caused Telstra to backflip, for now. Maybe vlandys should call any of the last three CEOs and ask how they managed Telstra?

    The Victorians all hate V’landys ever since he took on their spring carnival and won. The Victorian racing clubs still don’t know what to do about it

    Get 3 losers to use social media and whinge to get him to backflip of course.

    No doubt he'll change course if that pressure is heaped on him.

    Lol.

    Yes LOL.
    With the supposed social media influence of the whining we get here at times,the NRL must be domiciled in every Australian state,Televised in every country on Prime time, and have 21st century stadiums in every city and suburb.
    V'Landys does not have his morning muesli, unless he reads our complaints ,and instructs his staff to act accordingly.

    wow, you really are behind the times arent you? Social media blew up and was quickly followed by main stream media criticism of big bad Telstra doing the dirty on the wonderful Warriors who have saved the game this year. Took 36 hours for Telstra to feel the heat and back down. Such is the power of social media these days and the influence it can have driving the traditional media. The question we should ask is why NRLHQ were unable to do what previous administrations have achieved for the last 20 odd years in protecting Warriors valuable sponsorship in the first place?

    Yeah behind the times... have to get the dumb arses on social media to blow up about the cost mobiles and internet so Telstra can wave their bills for eternity.

    f**king lol.

    Mainstream/traditional media could not gave given a flying f**k about the Vodaphone issue.

    Trouble is we've seen the work of previous administrations and the results are hardly mouth watering.Losing money, poor Tv deals, no govt lobbying ability, no expansion, letting media give AFL what it wants, yeah right.The Telstra contract was one of exclusivity ,and only a matter of time remembering we retained digital much to their chagrin,before they pulled the exclusive pin.

    Sounds like V'lad is keen on changing the fabric of Origin.

    Vlandys: “Should players from Polynesian countries who play for the Polynesian countries be allowed to play State of Origin? We’re reviewing that as we speak.
    “The NSW coach has been vocal with me that we should have the best players in the State of Origin and I agree wit him. So we need to look at that. I think it’s a pretty stupid rule where we force all our players to play for Australia. If they want to play for Tonga or Samoa, let them. Because that only strengthens the international game.

    “But don’t stop them from playing State of Origin and the New Zealand players for that matter. So the international (schedule) may have to work around that.”

    And it continues even more as we speak with the Qld government pumping money into the AFL to host their grand final, make up total lies about outrating the NRL on FTA in Qld (despite the truth being is league outrating AFL 3 and 4 to 1 despite a terrible Broncos) while our media men sit back bagging every aspect of the game and constantly bagging any thought of expanding the sport or at the very least getting more games and another team into a RL heartland like Brisbane.
    V’Landys has made it clear he wants to consolidate the heartland so lets see what the commission comes up with

    Yet the PRs of this world ignore the fact Govts like Qld suck up to the AFL.On that basis ,I'd rather have a street fighting head of the NRL who will take it up to Govts and push the game forward, than some mealy mouthed CEOs we've had in the past yes men.
    This AFL G/F issue has made getting a 2nd Brisbane NRL team an absolute necessity.If you lose heartland you are snookered big time.

    I don’t ignore anything, the question you have to ask is why?
    Here’s an idea, maybe because the afl actually works hard to build relationships with governments, unlike vlandys who tells them they are a waste of NRL’s time and money?
    we spend what little time And resource we invest thinking about expansion to consolidate whilst they spend it To expand, continually keeping us reactive and on the back foot. The end game is inevitable If we continue down this path.

    RL must be really reallly weak in Brisbane if you think holding a one off grand final there is going to convert them to afl lol you think the afl stressed at us taking origin to afl cities? They would have barely talked about it.
