Passion is an under-rated commodity in the workplace these days. Cool, level-headed conservatism is in. Get someone with brains and nice suits and the ability to manage finances and hey presto! There’s your new boss.
It’s upside down logic. Passion for the business is valuable in any major enterprise. Say what you like about my boss Rupert Murdoch, and many of you will, but you can’t argue that the guy loves the game. The same with the late Kerry Packer.
Over in the AFL, you get the impression Andrew Demetriou is so passionate about his sport, he still rips into a new box of Weet-Bix to see if he can find a Buddy Franklin card at the bottom. The NRL could have followed suit and installed a leader who knows and loves the game. They didn’t, and they’ll likely pay for it.
