Speedcafe reports that Tony Cochrane could make a move to the top job at NRL ...

Tony Cochrane has been linked to the vacant role of National Rugby League CEO just days after announcing he is set to quit his position as V8 Supercars executive chairman.

According to a report in The Sunday Telegraph today, Cochrane is interested in the position left open since David Gallop’s departure in June.

“I am very passionate about sport,” Cochrane is quoted as saying in response to a possible NRL switch.

“And I would consider any role that would help a sporting organisation. I am certainly not retired and would not reject any role in sport without strong consideration.”

Cochrane also expanded on his decision to end his 16-year association with V8 Supercars, which comes just 16 months after a majority takeover by private equity firm Archer Capital.

“I just thought the time was right to go,” he said.

“Following the announcement of Mercedes the other day and with a race in Texas finalised, the sport is just in fantastic shape. I just felt it was time to move on and get ready for my next challenge.”

To me I can't see him in the NRL Series , this would be truly a bad move for him and the V8 Supercar series if you think about it..

I couldn't see it being anything but adversarial. His style is .......well, to put it bluntly a bully.

Can anyone see a sport populated by people like footballers, who are tough, aggressive, adversarial etc putting up with the inflammatory comments TC has been prone to make against any that don't do as he said? or his "my way or the highway" approach!

It may have worked in a sport that has been overly "PC" and sanitized like V8supercars but it won't work against footy players.

What it means is there are no sacred games... the Grand Final is just another game and will be treated the same as the rest of the home and away season...

As a plus though, sprintcars will now provide halftime entertainment...

Maybe his no bull**** attitude is what's needed to clean up the disgrace that is the NRL.
