I like the bit where it says "He leaves the sport in a strong position". Am I missing something?

I hear what you are saying, but, to be fair to 'our Rog', does he actually say that, was it not the reporter?

I can't wait to find out about these soon to be announced commercial deals

Clearly more to this than meets the eye. He says “It was always my intention to come into the organisation for just a couple of years" but then he has left after one. He must think we cannot count.

I look forward to hearing the "significant commercial announcements due in the coming weeks".

I think that's a shame. I thought he did a good job for us - grew our attendances and put us on a far more professional footing in terms of the shop, branding and merchandising. For me he did a similar job to Peter Deakin - built momentum and positivity and moved us forward as a modern sporting organisation.

It's too early to say whether he had the same impact on the RFL as it's a slower beast to turn around but objectively a 19% increase in commercial revenue is leaving it in a stronger position.

You'd think he had his eye on the CEO role but reading between the lines it looks like the clubs are taking more power for Super League so with that and Ralph Rimmer being put in temporary charge probably decided he didn't need the aggravation. He doesn't need the money, his home and family are in Surrey so understandable if he thought I'll leave you to it.

That's why I said "it" & not "he"

Very good, I missed that and thought it was strange for you not to be spot on 100% accurate I was mesmerized by quotation marks

Doesn’t stay around long were ever he goes though, does he consider himself some sort of fire fighter. Will be interesting to see were he lands next.

Well although the rumour I gave wasn't crisp accurate I did say our club had voted against RD.
It looks like clubs took heed.

The downside is when a director does poorly he's allowed to leave with a pristine CV and a massive golden handshake.

I don't imagine Roger will get anything but his last month's pay. To be fair, though, he doesn't seem to have done anything wrong at the RFL, (so what blot should there be on his CV?) and was not there long enough for any of us to judge him alongside old Nig who had ten years at the helm and not much to show for it.
