It was only an ad designed to reflect Greenberg’s political aspirations. We now have more important issues to tackle, such as saving lives, finding jobs for people and uplifting the country’s collective emotional health. Divisive politics makes the job harder in good times or bad times.
I loved the add at the start but I agree it’s not a good time to have a add saying ‘simply the best’ in this time while many people are questioning NRL special privileges, especially while some don’t follow the rules. Right call to can it.
There will always be a time when some don’t follow the rules, regardless of the particular rules. Greenberg defended the ad in the face of enormous criticism by stating he was aiming to show the NRL as an inclusive organisation. So what’s different now? Is inclusiveness still important to the NRL?
