SOUTH Sydney officials have been considering an ownership model for life after Russell Crowe similar to that of American football's Green Bay Packers, in which fans would be able to buy shares in the club.
Rabbitohs chairman Nick Pappas and chief executive Shane Richardson yesterday confirmed that the Oscar-winning actor had advised them six weeks ago he intended to sell his 37.5 per cent stake at the end of next season and said it was up to him to find a buyer.
However, Souths members have the first option on Crowe's shareholding and that of his business partner Peter Holmes a Court, who is yet to decide whether he wants to remain involved.
The precedent for co-operative ownership is the Green Bay Packers in the USA. The Packers are the only non-profit, community-owned major league professional sports team in the United States.
