Something to Crowe About

Russell Crowe is gradually proving the naysayers wrong as co-owner of the South Sydney ‘Rabbitohs’ rugby league club. Crowe and businessman Peter Holmes à Court took over and privatised the beleaguered club in 2006, sparking numerous protests from fans and league officials. “What we’re doing has never been done before,” said Holmes à Court in the Sydney Morning Herald. “I still don’t know if we’re going to be successful. I know this is a crazy thing to do. It doesn’t stack up on any of the numbers my accountant will agree to as a business deal. But I know this club would not have survived.” The SMH is impressed with the pair’s efforts so far: “As anyone at the club who was there for a nanosecond of the dark days will attest, their influence has been remarkable.”
