I think Kev and the Boys won despite Ikin. He drove me crazy lol.Couldn't form an opinion on him in his latest career iteration, either way. But he was my designated whipping boy when he played in the halves for us (I always seem to have one). Was nothing special as a player despite how he might look on paper to those who never saw him play. But he was good enough to win us a premiership, so what would I know?
Good luck to him. This won't be the last we see of Ben Ikin.
The only issue I have is if Ikin was forced out we will have lost any favour with Kent. His broncos coverage from here on in will indicate on what terms ben left on….whether he is vitriolic towards us will be the clue.
The bloke is a flog and uses his tv show for hisa personal agendas.
Isn't DD younger than Ikin? Hopefully DD is at the club until he retires sometime in the 2050s.I hope Ben is in this role for as long as DD is with us and when DD steps down I'd love Benny boy to take over at the Broncs as the new CEO. I wish him every success with the QRL gig. Any sort of progress he initiates that help us beat the cockroaches is more than welcome.
I’m aware that this hasn’t worked this time around but, we can just hope Karl Morris to foock off to cockroach land so that DD can replace him & Ikin can comeback to us as CEO.
Expect the slightest issue to be blown completely out of proportion from here on out.I disagree.
no matter what terms Ikin left on the he'll be vitriolic towards us.
Kent hates us, has always hated us and the only reason he has been slightly softer towards us is because his mate was at the club. with his mate gone any cease fire that was in play will be well and truly over
Expect the slightest issue to be blown completely out of proportion from here on out.
Factual thoughI thought I'd quickly turn in NRL 360 to see what they said about this, and it was actually fairly tame ... along the lines of too bad it didn't work out, but the QRL role will suit him.
Although Kent did give the credit for turning the club around to Ikin. He said, and I quote, "I think he has done pretty well. When he arrived they were last, when he left they are first"
