There are two ways to see Russell Crowe’s decision to renounce his 37.5 per cent stake of the Rabbitohs football club for “family reasons”.
You could see him as a role model for the thoroughly modern man; a father prepared to make personal sacrifices in the name of family.
Or, you could take a more cynical approach and question whether Crowe’s time would be better saved slicing off a couple of movies from schedule every year.

The story of Chris Sandow is well known to those who follow even a little rugby league: he’s bloody tiny, has a heart the size of Queensland, and when he does actually make contact with opposition players, they certainly know it.
He was the league’s top rookie in 2008, has won matches almost single handedly, divides critics and fans alike, and after four years, he is leaving the Souths Sydney Rabbitohs, the Club where he has made his professional debut, to join the Parramatta Eels.
I first met Chris at the southern end of Erskineville Oval as the sun set on a hard training day for the prospective Rabbitohs under 20’s side. I had been asked to meet the new group of promising juniors, and had been well backgrounded on the squad, particularly “Chrissy” as he was already known.
