Summary Rugby league fans know their game is managed by the 'Australian Rugby League Commission' but they're not sure what the Commission is, and they don't like how the game is run. To them, league is a sport and the great players are their heroes. In contrast, more and more, administrators in suits see football as a business. As a lifetime fan, student of league history, lawyer and prominent administrator who was part of the board that voted to create the Commission in 2012, NSW Rugby League CEO David Trodden is uniquely placed to describe the process that led to the game's new governance structure and to analyse its progress. 'The Commission We Had To Have' is essential reading for all rugby league fans who are wondering what has happened to their game. Where would league be without its current administrative structure? Where might it be heading?
