I didn't know that the family size Pizza Supreme came in five courses.

I thought he'd resigned in December. Is this another job that he's resigned from?

Posters views on who they would like to take over from him?
Possibly someone with a sports admin background and marketing as well.

For all his faults, Wood was not the root of many of the game's biggest issues.

It will be interesting to see who the new scapegoat becomes.
I wish everyone would read bramleyrhino's post two or three times just to get it through some thick skulls


Mr bramleyrhino speaks a lot of sense.

His nose in the trough and agreeing/backing up the over the recommended pay rises (by an independant panel) by themselves highlights how they were on the gravy train for years.
He did the bare minimum at times and ultimately in his tenure the sport has not progressed in relative terms to other sports.
Bradford Northern 1964 and all the shenanigans, Crusaders inclusion and failure, London/SE regions not being given enough support - Schools not entering comps anymore (nor having any RL teams at all) round these parts and certainly no new schools running RL /
UK participants have dropped, funding from Sport England has dropped massively (38% last time) and the vast majority of the last lot of funding is mainly because there is a ladies comp that started out (£7M out of the £10.7M), we'll see how that goes as it is a small positive but decades behind other sports.
2009-13 - £27.6m
2013-17 - £17.5m
2017-21 - £10.75M

TV deals accepted that are shown to be undervalued, Stobart debacle which effectively reduced the headline SL sponsorship deal to zero in terms of monetary value to the clubs, failure to engage the media (see the insider article from before christmas as to how mickey poor), did I mention Bradford-gate.

NW is/was the CEO, he was the boss as well as being paid for his IRLF 'work', the buck stops with him, he has failed and yet still troughed himself and his mates to the hilt. Disgusting, greedy, feckless and good riddance.

Sally Bolton, Blake Solly and Ralph Rimmer have all been named as candidates, someone from outside the sport would be better, someone who gives a turd and is competent.
