ARLC Chairman under fire by big guns
Posted 04 December 2012 - 10:22 PM
There's been a rumbling that's gathered pace in ther last week or two. People like Phil Gould have been attacking the games leadership.
So the chairmen of the 16 NRL clubs are meeting next Monday.
Will they want to/be able to get rid of Grant?
The ARLC have come up with a massive TV deal that impressed hugely. Is that enough to save his bacon?

especially this bit:
The obvious lack of confidence follows one of the most eventful off-seasons in the game's history: the failure to secure Israel Folau, the player strike threat, still no salary cap or collective bargaining agreement, the loss of sponsors Telstra, Toyota, Bundaberg Rum and Harvey Norman, no radio deal, the rep players' eligibility farce, the draw furore and the appointment of a CEO who knows nothing about league.

With the farce still surrounding what the Salary cap will actually be for 2013 and many critical of the new logos and still no news on the radio deal, the banning of shoulder charges with no real clarification of what is/isnt allowed etc the ARLC alongside Grant are on borrowed time for me. Not just Grant should go but the whole lot of the ARLC. Once again poor administration and politics damages our game

Club Council's Trodden denies that there's a fallout with Grant,
Club Council deny lobbying against Grant
Obviously a more typical media shaped statement that aims to calm the situation/papers over the cracks.
