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.
