Jim will also be pocketing $1.8 million for the sale so I hope he doesn't have any harsh feelings towards the new owners and I don't think they owe him anything either.
He would be good for the job. It would come down to how long for and if he was willing to move back to Sydney again. I put how long as the NRL might be willing to take the right man to fix things up for a short period. The moving to Sydney statement is mainly around his reasons for leaving his last role there to come back here and be close to family, that could of been diplomatic to not burn bridges as he may have had frustrations working with Dave Smith. I doubt the NRL and Sydney media are at a stage where they would have a CEO that would commute from NZ.
That is because they are both incompetent.Greenberg and Beattie seem pretty chummy at the moment.
The NRL has a budget blowout of AU$30 million that they are having trouble borrowing apparently. Greenberg's job is to get that sorted, not the referees. If that isn't sorted soon there will be changes and one thing about Jim Doyle he knows how to keep the money in the till.Kent had a good quote on NRL 360 a few weeks back. "Greenberg is a manager not a leader". A good summation as If things were running smooth he'd probably be fine but giving directives on the referees and trying to protect them he has come off a bit lost.
Can see a big lead in for Jim there... nicely set up for him to assume control sooner rather than later. I really do hope so. It would be excellent for us, and for the other out of Sydney clubs too. In other words, great for the game.That is because they are both incompetent.

The NRL is a snake pit of power brokers behind the scenes. It would be a tough job, especially for the money of offer. Doyle wouldn't harm the Warriors but doing anything to favour them might be a big ask.It would only be good for the Warriors if Doyle got the big job.
