    Just a topic I wanted to bring this up. Once Beattie is gone, this guy is coming in. Now, I don’t know too much of his credentials but if he’s coming from the horse racing industry, is that a good thing? I think that sport is a massive rort and a bunch of crooks but the guy has been highly spoken of. (Through major media outlets which you prob need to take with a grain of salt). Thoughts?

    I sort of agree with u ,don't know much about him,but the horse racing industry was on its knees,when he took over,and turned it into a multimillion dollar industry,I believe one of the first things on his agenda is to lobby government,to put money into suburban grounds,which I would dearly love,the doggies at belmore every week,?no harm in dreaming

    Maybe someone should get in his ear about handicaps. Roosters, Broncos, and Storm clearly advantaged should have to play all of next season blindfolded.

    V’landys and Politis are both Kytherian, both born on the Greek island of Kythera.
    If V’Landys gets the gig you don’t have to be Einstein to figure out these guys will be working hand in hand to the detriment of others.

    I know a guy who is a horse racing steward. I won't reveal his identity. He told me that vlandys is gun barrel straight and a no nonsese character who is very good at getting to the bottom of dodgy stuff in the sport. I am led to believe he will stay in racing while being nrl commission chairman. I look forward to him locking horns with a certain individual in rugby league and would be very disappointed if he doesn't.
