  • New ARL Chairman V'Landys

    Would do you reckon?

    I'm happy about it as the guy is a mover and shaker, and will get things done.

    He has been pretty good for racing...my equal love with Rugby League

    Its got to be a step up from Beter Peattie but I guess Humphrey B Bear would be also.

    I don't think Pete could run a decent meat raffle at the local Bowlo.

    Beattie leaves us with some absolute gems. My two favourite moments were, in no particular order:

    1. When he confused a Barcelona soccer shirt for a Newcastle jersey. He was so pleased with himself. As far as he knew, he'd nailed it and that made up for not knowing who the Cronulla Sharks were a few weeks earlier!
    2. Sending a message to an impersonator of the long-since gone Laurie Nicholls , "Good to see you are well Laurie."

    What a classic. Couldn't arrange for a piss to run downhill.

    V'Landys? Happy to wait and see. He has indeed done a good job with racing.

      Poor old Pete was way out of his depth and he knew it.

      It's why ex Pollies should never get a real job.

            The one thing I know is that V'Landys is straight as a die. Call him the Anti-Kevin Humphreys.

              Unfortunately, I don't see him being involved with league long.
              The boys club there now won't like what he will want to do and push him out the door.
              Until the people their just looking out for themselves our gone nothing will change.

                  He has helped country racing in NSW out of the mire, so I'm hoping grassroots footy gets a shot in the arm too.

                    I think he will be good for NSW Rugby League in a time where there is a lot of pressure on the game in Sydney and country where others would just sold them out

                      Great negotiator and in some areas of administration.....but coming from a harness racing background (like i do) i don't agree with this statement.

                              Good appointment as long as he restores Souths as the pride of the league.
