In the wake of Peter Holmes a Court's departure as executive chairman of the South Sydney Rabbitohs, rumors have abounded--not only about the Rabbitohs, but centered around the National Rugby League as a whole.
Because of a funding crisis in the NRL, some Sydney clubs have been predicted to fall, and Holmes a Court has been the first club boss to say that his team might not make it. He says that the club has already lost millions, and that the club would need another 4000 members to break even over the next couple of years.
The Rabbitohs have posted assurances on the official club website to assure their members and corporate sponsors that the club is doing everything in its power to achieve its goals.
Amid all this, Russell Crowe, as Rabbitohs co-owner, is set to officially appoint Holmes a Court's replacement next week, with Anthony Bell rumored to be taking the reins.
As Russell fans, we hope all this will be cleared up and will do so in the Rabbitoh's (and rugby league) favor. Russell has put not only money and time, but heart, into this club and this game.
