    "But none of that will stop NRL administrators from collecting big end-of-season bonuses next month – unless the Australian Rugby League Commission steps in to stop them being awarded.
    The NRL’s bonus system is based largely on revenue, rather than the way the game is administered during the year. Chief executive Todd Greenberg revealed during the week that the game generated $500 million for the year for the first time. That’s a great result for Greenberg. It was boosted by sellout crowds at the grand final and Origin matches in Sydney and Perth.

    It means Greenberg is in line to collect a bonus of about $250,000. Other senior executives will receive up to 25 per cent of their salaries – in some cases about $100,000 – in bonuses."

    Most of the profit was generated from gambling sponsors. Which is fucking disgusting...

    How about they get their bonuses based on their competency? Those at the top of the tree are responsible for their employees..i.e. the referees, linesmen and judiciary. All three of those groups have had a shocker of a year.. no consistency and a lot of decisions that stank to high heaven.

    Completely agree it just stinks that every jersey has a betting sponsor on it, dodgy as fuck the Nrl. If it wasn’t for our doggies I wouldn’t give a hoots

    The worst part is the creation of employee contracts which have a potential 25% bonus component. Just a big gravy train with lots of snouts in the trough looking after each other. Imagine being on $200K and getting a $50K bonus... which would be a lot of the supporters take home wage.

    They deserve bonuses if they have performed but youd have to say the game has gone backwards this year

    This kind of thing happens when dollars are the only (or predominant) method used to measure success. Anyone who thoroughly supports a free market deregulated capitalist system can only stand and applaud.
