Exclusive: John O'Neill calls for RA 'lame ducks' to stand down from TV deal talks | tomdecent

Former Australian Rugby Union chief executive John O’Neill has described outgoing members of Rugby Australia’s board, including chairman Cameron Clyne, as “lame ducks” and believes they should have no involvement in upcoming broadcast negotiations if they are moving on at the annual general meeting next month.

Provided all parties can come to an agreement, RA can then officially take its top-to-bottom, club to Test rugby rights package to market later this week. Vice chairman Brett Robinson will stand down, there is speculation director Paul McLean is also moving on and others board members may not seek re-election.

“Cameron Clyne is not standing for re-election, so he’s not going to be there. The negotiations can be put on ice for six to seven weeks and then the new governing body can do its own due diligence and can get on with it.

tomdecent How many shares in NewsCorp he have?

tomdecent Pathetic when an ex-CEO decides to tell the new CEO/Board how to do their job. Piling on shows no respect for the organisation they once led.

tomdecent Nothing good comes from selecting someone based on their genitalia rather than their resume. Ask the Canterbury NRL club.

Bushfires royal commission 'ignores the role Australia must play in reducing global emissions'The proposed bushfire inquiry's instructions play down the seriousness of climate change, the ACT's leader says. Of course it does. Nothing is good enough for the emissions doom cult. Lol, on the authority of the ACT government. A Royal Commission is simply an opportunity for lawyers and “experts” to debate and get rich. Deflects attention from Govt incompetence - nothing will change - Banking RC is proof of that. Waste of money.
