    He is 100% right
    People have assumed Peter is dodgy because he’s involved in racing but he’s far from it and it’s a great appointment.

    Like I said, don’t know much about him. But that sounds positive

    I don't know enough about him to comment to others, but certainly to myself I assumed it to be the case.
    I hope he has his integrity - we need him to stand tall against greenturd and politis, not be their best buddies.

    By all accounts he sounds like a bloke that has the intestinal fortitude and aptitude to sort out the cluster fuck the NRL has become. I hope this is the case.

    He was the one pushing to clean up harness racing and was doing a great job until poached to the Gallops and his position there wasn't ever going to be easy because they didn't care at that time if the Gallops were clean, I think he will be good for League , lets hope so anyway.

    lol at all the comments about horse racing and everyone being labeled cheats, 100000 plus people licensed over the codes and only a handful of them have been charged and convicted, people are quick to forget ryan tandy and what he was up to, remember he couldnt have pulled off what he did working alone, and how many times have teams that look like certainties been flogged
    where ever there is betting there is an element there that will cheat

    vlandys will bring a lot of scrutiny and integrity to the nrl, hes no-nonsense approach and bullish attitude wont see him swayed by refs boss or media, theres more integrity measures in horse racing than nrl

    In an interview with Meldrum-Hanna, Mr V’landys insisted that “zero” horses from NSW were ending up at abattoirs or knackeries — facilities that turn animals into pet meat.

    “Because it is against the rules of racing,” he said.

    When asked if he was sure the figure was zero, Mr V’landys responded: “Yes, absolutely.”

    Sounds so full of shit. He will slot into the NRL seamlessly.

    Yep...looks like we can look forward to a few more years of Roosters premierships and the NRL looking the other way re their salary cap.

    From Rothfield’s latest Saints, Sinners, Shoosh article…

    SPOTTED IV

    A trifecta of rugby league heavyweights — Peter V’landys, Nick Politis and Todd Greenberg — having breakfast in Rushcutters Bay on Thursday, discussing pertinent league matters.

    Was disappointed at how he handled the horses interview. Seemed out of his depth.

    We can live with hope, yet only time will tell if that was warranted!

    When I learned that V'lands came from the same Greek Island as Politis my stomach turned over big time. Politis already had everything covered for long into the future.
    What hope have we got.

    I honestly don't know anything about Vlandys. But it's not good to hear that he's having lunch with Politis and Greenberg. Throws some doubt about integrity straight away if he's hanging out with them.
