Focus on Foster’s aim
SBS commentator Craig Foster wants to replace Steven Lowy as boss of Australian n soccer.
This raises a potential conflict t of interest scenario leading up to the he board election on November 19.
Mark Taylor pulled out of contention for chairman of Cricket Australia because of his media interests at Channel 9.
Foster is in the same boat. There ere is no questioning his passion, expertise and knowledge of the game.
But what if there is a serious issue that needs to be addressed in his role at SBS.
Could he be critical of his own board? And what happens when the broadcasting rights are up for grabs when he’s employed by one of the networks? We’ll be watching this one closely.
