Ok, what happened here.
Marina Go resigns and the other Independant rep resigns 24 Dec.
Justin Pascoe comes back… Marina’s resignation becomes public.
1. Marina hated Justin and was maneuvering him out. When he was coming back she resigned… Kinda doubtful of this as Marina hired Justin, but possible.
2. The Independent directors were conflicted between the NRL and the WT. As their appointer would be acting against the club they were appointed to run. They don’t want to get caught between serving the interests of the NRL and serving the club.
3. Marina was revealed to be behind the Farah saga. She either fell on her sword to save Justin or similar.
Of all possibilities, I think 2. The directors may not be that independent and got caught in a legal issue when the WT attacked the NRL for wrongful dismissal of Pascoe.
I don’t know, it sort of sounded like the way this all went down disillusioned her, and she’s leaving because she doesn’t want to put up with the rubbish.
So about a week after Pascoe was deregistered, she wants out. She would have talked with Pascoe, he would have told her there was no intent in cheating. She could see NRL honing in on us, and wanted out of the toxic environment.
Good on her for staying 'till we can sort a replacement.
Score another for Toddy, though I sure hope his days in the NRL are numbered and fast running out.
Wests Tigers chair Marina Go resigns
This is a pretty miss leading headline from nrl.com yes Ms Go will be moving on but not until a replacement is found…but I’m not surprised one bit…
A lot will just assume she resigned because of recent events…nice work Todd and your media clowns
Ah, yea new job makes sense.
That being said. Board level conflicts of interest can cause resignations. The NRL appointed Go, now WT suing NRL, I could see this becoming difficult as Marina has to act in the clubs interest and I am unclear what her obligations are to the NRL
No I dont assume ‘independant director’ is totally independant. I would have to look at the contract.
Even Marina knows you dont bite the hand that feeds.
