    The handling errors between the Ponies and the Rabble weren't much better than yesterday. Admittedly their first game time in a while, but still looked pedestrian after watching the 'Saders and Highlanders. The score didn't show how close that game was. Streets ahead.

    Nice to see the Rabble doing their public duty as usual. With the border to close at midnight due to Covid, they are advising members via e mail "Secure Your Ticket" apparently to avoid having to reimburse memberships. This after the NRL and NSW Health Minister warned a week ago that tickets would not be sold to Mexicans

    Harold Mitchell 'stepped over the line' with Seven deal, court finds

    By Sarah Danckert
    July 31, 2020 ó 12.54pm

    Harold Mitchell has been found by the Federal Court to have breached his duties as a director of Tennis Australia for passing on information to Seven West Media executive Bruce McWilliam, who was described as a "colourful character" by the presiding judge.

    Mr Mitchell and former Tennis Australia president Steve Healy were accused by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission of several breaches of the Corporations Act over their decision to grant a five-year broadcast rights deal for the Australian Open in 2012 to Seven.

    The corporate watchdog accused Mr Mitchell and Mr Healy of withholding material from the Tennis Australia board when it made its decision to award the rights, and of failing to inform the board of the value of the rights and the interest of parties other than the Seven Network, notably Network 10 and US group IMG.

    On Friday, Justice Jonathan Beach threw out the majority of the case against Mr Mitchell but found he did, on "a narrow basis only", breach the law. He also completely dismissed the case against Mr Mitchell's co-accused Mr Healy.

    "Mr Mitchell stepped over the line in his dealings with Mr McWilliam," Justice Beach said.

    "And his overall conduct had the tendency to undermine the stance and approach of Mr Steven ]Wood, the CEO. There were some things that he communicated with Mr McWilliam that he ought not to have done particularly in the latter part of 2012," Justice Beach said.

    "None of this ultimately caused damage to Tennis Australia and none of this was motivated by anything other than Mr Mitchell's perception that it was in the interest of Tennis Australia that the deal with Seven was stitched up sooner and rather than later.

    "His contraventions are far narrower in scope than ASIC would have it," Justice Beach added.

    Justice Beach said he would be unlikely to ban Mr Mitchell and suggested a declaration from the court and a pecuniary penalty would suffice. The size of the fine will be decided at a later date.

    Justice Beach also said that some of the evidence provided by ASIC and ASIC's witnesses, particularly that of key ASIC witness, former Tennis Australia director Janet Young was unreliable. "First, her conflict of interest allegations concerning Mr Mitchell lacked substance. Second, her conspiracy and cover-up theories were devoid of foundation and content," he said.

    He was also not sparing of how ASIC managed the case. "Much of ASICís construction of its evidence displayed confirmatory bias," Justice Beach said. "The various cover-up and conspiracy theories that it floated turned out to lack substance."

    Justice Beach referred to Mr McWilliam as a "colourful character" when describing the emails being forwarded by Mr Mitchell to Mr McWilliam.

    "What then was Mr Mitchell doing in his private communications with Mr Bruce McWilliam of Seven, who seemed quite a colourful character?"

    Justice Beach said Mr Mitchell had claimed he was playing the good cop with Seven while Mr Wood had been playing the bad cop, but added while this might have been the case the emails should not be been sent by Mr Mitchell to Mr McWilliam.
