9. PA­TRICK DE­LANY Fox Sports chief ex­ec­u­tive

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

Spear­headed the re­vamped cov­er­age on Fox Sports, en­sur­ing that ev­ery game would be shown live on sub­scrip­tion tele­vi­sion, and paved the way for the launch of a ded­i­cated NRL chan­nel. The pay-TV net­work poured mil­lions of dol­lars into the ini­tia­tive, more cash than its AFL coun­ter­part, Fox Footy, for its Fox League chan­nel which proved to be an in­stant suc­cess. The net­work has also been able to sign up a host of cur­rent star play­ers, in­clud­ing Cooper Cronk, Greg Inglis, Aaron Woods and James Gra­ham.
