Notes
  • I thought it was a well told story about the power and importance that sport plays in people’s lives and the benefits that can be derived from leveraging that power. Not only is it important for brands and corporations to realise that power, but also to appreciate it and leverage it in a relevant and mutually beneficial way. That way, even the most opposed fans to corporate involvement in sport will come around when the product both on and off the field reaps the rewards.

    sorry you didn't like it. not for everyone.
    Mr Taylor was dealt with professionally, and we stand behind our decision. My positions on cheerleaders is clear: nothing against spandex-clad people dancing in general, it is just that the cheerleaders were the only presence women had at our games and didn't that was the right context for women.

    Not sure what you think are the alternative models for funding Rugby League, and ours is certainly only one way to go. Each to their own. P

  • Sorry but that was a load of rubbish. Told me nothing.

    If sport is about inclusion and second chances - what about Jason Taylor. If it's good enough to have Reggie Rabbit, why not the cheer girls? And don't talk for those people peering over the fence at the trial game. they just refuse to partake in your money grab - it was a trial!!!!

    Peter, you and Crowe need to stop trying to brainwash fans and sponsors into supporting your model. It stinks and we don't want a bar of it.

  • And when I talk about ‘the power’, I am talking not about the box office clout, the TV ratings or the size of our asset base which even in a small country of Australia we estimate having a replacement value of over A$100 billion.I am talking about the power to change our society.

      Redfern Oval 2006
      worse, the run down oval and grandstand was a nest for crime in the surrounding area
    • 27. in partnership with the City of Sydney, Redfern Oval is today a vibrant community asset with a state-of-the-art training facility, a playground for kids, skate ramp, basketball hoops, open from sunrise to sunset in the shared custody of the community and the Rabbitohs.

    • 71. dedicated to Mike Wrublewski 1946 – 2009
      Michael Wrublewski was a pioneer of professional basketball in Sydney, a former director of ISFM and the founder of the Sydney Kings. Mike’s funeral was being held as I gave a version of this speech for the first time. This quotes is from one of his players, and speaks for itself:
      “...we did over 660 school visits a year when Mike was in charge...
      and when the Kings folded two years ago they did just 20 school visits.”
      The Sydney Kings went out of business in 2007, the year they had won their third consecutive national championship. Who said winning is everything in sport in Australia.

      Peter is the Executive Chairman of ISFM, a specialist sports industry consultancy, a director of Viocorp International, Australia’s leading internet video technology company, a director of Queensland Rail and the Barangaroo Delivery Authority, and since 2006 he has been the co-owner with Russell Crowe of the South Sydney Rabbitohs. Peter was Executive Chairman of the Club from mid-2006 to mid-2008.
      Previously Peter was CEO of the Australian Agricultural company, today the country’s largest cattle company. Peter took the 185 year old company public in 2001. Prior to that Peter founded and ran Back Row Productions, an international producer of theatrical productions, touring shows such as Australia’s highest grossing live theatrical show Tap Dogs, UK comic Eddie Izzard and Jerry Seinfeld, amongst a total of over 20 different productions in 300 cities and 20 countries.
      Peter was born in Perth, lived 14 years in the US and UK, and moved with his wife Divonne and two sets of twins to live in Sydney in 2000.
      Peter rides a bike and does the odd triathlon, both of which he does slowly.

    • 74. examples of new ways – physical and digital – sport is reaching its customers:
      www.isfm.com.au/projects_redfernoval.html
      A summary ISFM’s work on the redevelopment of Redfern Oval and adjacent commercial properties in conjunction with the major stakeholders including the City of Sydney Council, South Sydney Rabbitohs, South Sydney Leagues Club, and property developers Trivest. The completed project, and the adjoining park is considered a benchmark in community and elite sports integration.
      www.cyclingmasters.tv
      Viocorp developed this site to create a broadcast model for the track cycling masters championship. The model demonstrated how high quality multi-camera coverage, produced efficiently (i.e., cheaply) could create multiple new revenue streams (organiser, participants, sponsors, syndication) and enable a small participation sport to reach its geographically diverse fan base.
      www.rabbitohs.com.au/news/club-news/rabbitohs-2009-squad-announcemend.html
      The Rabbitohs broadcast “members-first” videos and release team news to their members at the same time (or before) the major media receives press releases. Importantly, while the quality of some videos is very high, some low cost videos of breaking news that is very relevant to hard core fans (not interesting at all to non fans and therefore the mainstream media) are the highest watched videos.
