surely it's time for new blood at red hall, replace wood and rimmer with o'connor and koukash, one to steady the ship and run it professionally and marwan to sell the game to the general public in his own unique way.............

Good point, both are successful men.

But the problem is that people make statements that people are incompetent and most have never met any of these people or have any clue what they do.
 
Unless the game is awash with money and all over the media, fans will criticise.


You are right, we do not have a clue what they do....they should spend some time publicising this.

And what chance is there of ever meeting them in the posh seats and hospitality rooms.

Exactly how big is the RFL budget? Am I right in believing big salaries are paid at the top....value for money? Accountability....Performance targets?

In a possible irony I was just about to direct you to the RFL Annual Review which is normally pretty decent at covering a lot of this ...  except that the link isn't working.

If every play-off game was a sell out and the World Cup stadiums were bursting at the seams with people trying to get in to see the likes of Cooks vs USA and then every football club stopped playing football and started playing RL and RL became the National sport, there would still be moaners!

Stop moaning, support the game and if you want to change something, YOU do it!

Why would Koukash be interested?

Not sure O'Connor would be either.

Why change for changing sake.

my point is that they are the type of people we need running the game, successful businessmen who would sell the game to the public whilst at the same time running it in a truly professional manner...........unlike the bumbling amateurs we have in place now.

As soon as the likes of O'Connor and Koukash took over they would immediately be ripped to shreds by fans.

 

O'Connor is a good business man sure, but he hasn't exactly got them flocking in to watch Widnes - as soon as there are thousands of empty seats at Wembley, Old Trafford and for internationals he would be deemed to be as incompetent as the last lot. 

As soon as he made the prudent decision to stage the semi final at a small ground, he would be deemed incompetent. 

 

If he did go for something bold like Magic Weekend, he would be judged on the empty seats and deemed incompetent.

 

Koukash - well who knows what he will do. Being loaded and having a big mouth may get you some publicity, but can he run a business that is sustainable in a challenging environment. I am keen to see what happens at Salford, and I hope that he can be successful with them, but we have no evidence that he will.

But they are tied to specific clubs and they could be the greatest ever and that would still be a red line to cross.

I am expecting this as a minimum come the end of the WC.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

Could we afford to pay multi-millionaire businessmen enough to give up their day job?
