"The reports of our demise have been greatly exaggerated," Crowe said.
"Today the board applauded Peter's achievements in lifting the South Sydney club and collectively we thanked him for his gargantuan effort over the past two years."
"Right now it's my belief that what South Sydney needs is the continuity, knowledge and experience that both Nick Pappas and Shane Richardson bring."
"Both men come from within the Souths family and both men understand intimately how to take advantage of the progress the club has made."
New appointments have now been made:
Nicholas Pappas--non-Executive Chairman
Shane Richardson-Chief Executive Officer
Coach John Lang-Football Consultant
Hopefully, all this means that things will settle down for the Rabbitohs, and that they can get back to playing games. And that the board and officers can get back to the business of running the club.
