Know what you are saying and Wayne Pearce is still on the ARL Commission.Yeah, i don't know magpie1963 and many people could say the same things about the other U.S food franchises (did somebody say KFC?) or is it that they used to taste a lot better in the old days? and it's worth remembering that in 2003, the person who introduced Krispy Kreme doughnuts to Aust. was Neil Whittaker.
Neil Whittaker (Balmain 1979-1985)
hooker and club captain
Whittaker, now is a very successful businessman and he was a key player in ending the Super League war, who then became the CEO of ARL in 1997 and then took the CEO position of the NRL the following year when it was formed.
Wouldn't it be nice now to remove those crooks at the NRL HQ and replace them with people like Neil or even Wayne Pearce?
Hopefully he is doing his best to keep them honest, but no doubt fighting a losing battle, but I'm sure he's got the best interests of Rugby League at heart.
