He canít. Politis has already taken a franchise over there so they can ďclaimĒ some more juniors

Donít worry Politis will win another comp in next few years if not 2020. He knows how to get value out of the salary cap where mere mortals struggle.

Interesting tidbit from Richie re Vílandys in his column near the end. Looking at Vílandys and his track record, I will not be surprised if he does not juggle everything as he is a workaholic. But I also do think the jobs he is doing now is very stressful to say the least especially the NRL gig.

It seems the ABC has investigated the complaint by Vílandys and Racing NSW. The end result is the complaints had no basis and it stated the complaint itself contained erroneous statements and claims according to Racenet and Australian.

The question is will Racing NSW and Vílandys go the next step and lodge a complaint with ACMA or lick their wounds?

In my opinion ACMA could find some adverse findings against ABC however they could also criticise Racing NSW and / or Vílandys too if they had made incorrect submissions or statements.

Tough call for Racing NSW and Vílandys. ACMA also take their time too which means a result could also fall in carnival time too.

VíLandys has floated an idea of another Brisbane team as part of the new Television deal.

I think it is a no brainer to have another Brisbane side. However do they get rid of Gold Coast or bring a 18th side as 17 sides means a bye each week. I also think broadcasters prefer an extra game if they have to pay a lot extra too.

The issue of an 18th side from Perth, Central Coast or another extra side from Qld or NZ is complicated. VíLandys needs to bring extra money as previous tv deals have gone up and up. However setting up a NRL side from scratch with no drafts plus a couple of basket cases in current NRL sides is going to be difficult.

I also think Storm are going to have difficulties in a few years if not sooner as they have managed to hold onto fans by winning constantly and having a good coach. This cannot be maintained forever so I will be intrigued to see how it plays out.

But kudos to VíLandys for pushing the expansion plan as it was too hard for some.
