Penrith Panthers General Manager Phil Gould doesn’t believe sacking ARLC Chairman John Grant will solve the club’s problems.
“At the moment, the action against John Grant is the only action available to the clubs, so they’ve taken it to make a stand and make a statement,” Gould told EON Sports Radio on Friday.
“That is their only option.
“It’s not personal against John. It’s just that where the constitution is at the moment and where the rights of the clubs can be most expressed is, I guess, to de-vote and remove the chairman.”
Gould went on to say that by replacing Grant will make no difference.
“I’m not sure (voting Grant out) solves the problem,” Gould said.
“Once John is removed, the clubs have no power under the constitution to appoint his replacement.
“If the money’s not there, the money’s not there.
“So I guess John is paying the penalty for whatever has led to this particular situation.”
