Many would like Mr Paulka to take an interest in what RVL is doing to most punters.

Missing from the News story link above posted by Jeunes is a quote in the Melbourne Age today where P V'landys reportedly said "Martin Pakula is a can-do man. I can understand why Victoria is getting so many international sports events with him at the helm. He is bringing millions of dollars into the Victorian economy."   

Ouch! First time I can recall anything nice being said about the Victorian Sports Minister but I might not have been paying attention in class.

Cheers


Vlandys is a smart man. He knows that an election is less than 12 months away and knows that Dom would hate to be portrayed as the man who loses the biggest Sydney sporting event to another state. If Dom called his bluff, Vlandys knows he will never get the Sydney stadiums too. An interesting set of events.

Wonder what the landscape would have been like if Vlandys did not take on the corporates. It shows how the corporates and to that many large businesses use the jobs angle to get better treatment than small businesses.

Racing NSW is funding the appeal and they have a top of the ladder silk in Bret Walker SC but he has the job ahead of him to prove that Wigney J made an error in law.
That will require all of BW's  skill and reputation to get the decision overturned.
Walker wouldn't take a case that is unwinnable so he must have found something it might only be a minor issue but if its an error in law he'll win the case..
For what its worth I reckon its a long shot to find any error/s in law .

................ and justice for some, perhaps -- especially if costs are irrelevant

Embarking on an expensive venture raises questions of 'who is paying'. Is RNSW covering the costs of this venture?

Whatever, much of the justice and injustice dispensed in Australia is dependent on having the readies to cover the costs if one is agreived to the point of pursuit.

The racing industry is notorious for imposing penalties safe in the knowledge that those penalized have no option other than 'just wear it' ... do the time, pay  the fine but do not even think of taking on an unlimited cheque-book made available to swamp any challenge.

Big prize money races or a huge land investment for the future.  Interesting debate as depending on how much is paid, another asset to sell if things become rough.

Given the “questionable” decisions by Fittler re team selection thank god PVL  is stepping in.
Bias and corruption need to be removed from the process........IF  it is indeed there

He was brought up in the Wollongong area so if he we see any Dragons players in the test team, there should be a stewards investigation.   :lol:

That conspiracy theory makes no sense at all  :what: Being considered as a rep or SOO player would only drive up his price or trigger clauses that many have if they achieve rep honours.

Have you actually been watching him this last month? His carries back have been awesome and he's been hard to contain everytime he touches the ball. Is he ready now? I doubt it but it doesn't hurt to bring some of these future players into camp.

Suaalii broke a record setting contract to go to the roosters.  2.5 million dollars.  He said at the time that he did it because it would open up his chances to play rep footy  :lol:   :lol:   :lol:

Fittler delivered for his mate Politis

Misguided   :lol:   :lol:   :lol:

I luv it when fans from clubs like the parras trot out the “souffs” as if they are some sort of social elites rather than toothless knuckle draggers themselves   :lol:

It shows they have nothing else  to offer  :bulb:

A mate of mine said last night a couple of blogs / forum raised a couple of conspiracies for the future with V’landys being on the Kangaroo selection panel.

The most interesting is that even if Fittler and Slater don’t agree, Meninga did have the casting vote. Does this mean they think Mal is going to be biased or is he on the outer for future?

The funniest one is the fact that V’landys being involved in selection means that he wants to be involved in everything until he is the face of NRL.  :lol:

But to be honest I just don’t get it why the Origin coaches are on the selection process. If it is a tight origin series, they will usually go for their players as you would expect them too. Meninga as Kangaroos coach should have a say.

I am not sure regarding Vlandys being there as it used to be all ex players. But if he is, then there should be another selector to make it an odd number in case of ties unless Vlandys gets double votes.   :lol:

Jeunes, in regards to PVls role as chairman of the selectors  it’s been the same scenario for the past 10 years. Dave Smith, Beattie & Greenberg all held the position

But Wily, why 4?

All jokes of PVL aside, he is a good administrator and much better than many before him.

But it never made sense to have the Origin coaches as part of the kangaroos selection process. I can understand Mal’s role in the selection process. If you are a state or national coach, you should have final say as it is your team.

Seems Peter had lunch with the Queen at Windsor Castle whilst he was there for the Royal Ascot meeting. It maybe soon be Sir Peter.    :lol:

Racenet has the article under a firewall.

Exercept from Let’s Go Horse Racing website who quoted Ray Thomas below.

PETER V’landys, the Racing NSW supremo and Australian Rugby League Chairman, was a special guest of the Queen for the royal procession which opened day two of Royal Ascot on Wednesday.

V’landys (pictured above courtesy of NEWS LTD) was accompanied by his wife Philippa in the horse-drawn carriage procession which is a tradition dating back to King George IV in 1825.

The couple’s day started when they were invited by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to Windsor Castle for lunch with selected guests.

Then V’landys and his wife were ushered into the royal procession carriages that left Windsor Castle to arrive at Royal Ascot at 2pm sharp, local time.

Her Majesty is renowned for her knowledge and love of thoroughbred racing but it’s not known if her sporting passions extend to rugby league.

V’landys described the invitation to attend Windsor Castle and be part of the royal procession as a “humbling experience”.

V’landys sat next to the Queen at the luncheon and spoke with the monarch at length.

“The Queen is an amazing lady and she certainly knows her racing,’’ V’landys said.

“It was an honour to be invited to Windsor Castle and then to be a part of the royal procession.

Just remember next time some one questions your vice of gambling tell them if the Queen can gamble on them all day so can I.

Has the royal seal of approval.

For the comedy show to be complete....you needed to see Big Caesar and Razor Thomas on the opposite side of the "chariot"

According to Big Caesar "everybody" was talking to him about the highest mountain in the world race.
The Everest has really captured the hearts and minds of the "racing world"...it would appear.

Now all anyone has to do is find horses that can compete with Nature Strip.....easy as!!!! :what:

Mr Mair

To answer your question I think Red Symons still lives in North Fitzroy.  Not far from that other minor celebrity Jon Faine. Not sure what that has to do with horse racing

Red Symons = Red Faces Tim.

Light entertainment or comedy.

Bit like some of the images coming out of Royal Ascot.
