What, me worry?

What's Ikin's thoughts on Milford? Is he a fan?
I don't think having a high or low profile while doing this job will effect it, Gould was doing a similar role at Penrith and everyone and their dog knew what he was doing there and it worked well.At least he’ll know how to handle the media a wee better than his predecessor. Mind you Nolan kept a very low profile, so will Ikin choose to stay in the background?
Lets see if his ego comes before the club.
Also him and Lockyer are very close to Paul Green. Watch your back Kevvie!I agreed with everything he said last week on 360, and thought it was weird he was being passionate about us rather than condescending. I see why now. will be good if it works.
one of Locky‘s best mates, for whatever good or bad that is.
Are you being serious ?I think you’re reading too much into it. Can’t see us sacking Walters this year or next. We’re going to need him for the rebuild.
MartyrdomAre you being serious ?
What, exactly, does Kev offer for a rebuild ?
Talent identification (like Reece Walsh ?) ?
A pre disposition to do a global search and find, funnily enough, the ideal candidiate just happens to have the surname Walters ?
He can't possibly last until the end of next year if we keep getting dusted by 20+ (40+?) every week (which appears likely).
I've got to admire the brilliance of this as a '**** you' to Wayne.
He did, but it was framed as "News Corp understands" with a bunch of bullet points. Which is a bit like saying "we're being told this, and we're obliged to relay it, but don't blame us if it's wrong."Didn’t badel write a couple of days ago that the broncos would formally advertise for a new GM of football next week?
I would prefer to believe that it’s been in the works for a while and it was part of the “plan”.
He (Ikin) clearly must have presented really well in the interviews for the CEO position (indeed the rumour for quite a while was that he had the job), so maybe they had earmarked him for a role somewhere in the organisation.He did, but it was framed as "News Corp understands" with a bunch of bullet points. Which is a bit like saying "we're being told this, and we're obliged to relay it, but don't blame us if it's wrong."
Normally you wouldn't pay much attention to this lead-in but in this case News Corp is the majority shareholder. It's an interesting construction in this light. He's saying this is what the CEO has told shareholders.
In reality, it's quite possible they've all known about this for weeks, but have been embargoed.
It might also be an outright white lie to give the impression of doing due diligence in the job search process but actually having Ikin earmarked for a place at the club since right back when he failed to get the CEO job.
I'm just making all this up, but this isn't your average slow news day puff piece.
