Does anyone know if the old rumour that Steve Waugh is a WT fan is true?

If so, he'd be a great candidate

What about Scott Sattler for the board?

He was heavily involved in the GC bid and then was their Football Manager, currently runs his own private investigation and risk business and is on SEN.

I don’t mind this idea, is he Sydney based?

I think he lives in the Gold Coast, but I'm sure he could fly down for meetings.

Here's someone I hadn't considered before and think they'd actually be pretty good for our board.

Mark Geyer 

 

He'd bring a lot of footy knowledge to the board

He'd be a big help with recruitment 

Would be solid support for Benji

Brings a lot of media knowledge and exposure 

Very smart

What do you think?
