Fo­cus on Fos­ter’s aim

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - WHAT'S THE BUZZ -

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.
