news.com.au has a speculative story about James Packer possibly buying out Peter Holmes a Court with some nice photos (click the link). Excerpt:
South Sydney Rabbitohs chairman Nick Pappas said there was “no truth to the rumour as far as the club is concerned”.
Crown took the opportunity to take up the $1 million sponsorship of Souths when its Sydney casino rival, The Star, decided not to continue its support.
The sponsorship caused a rift for Mr Packer with Sydney Roosters boss Nick Politis.
The gaming billionaire and Mr Crowe have developed a close relationship in recent years, with Mr Packer’s RatPac movie venture backing the actor’s Gallipoli epic, The Water Diviner.
The posting on Friday caused a ripple of excitement among Souths fans, although its accuracy was met sceptically by some.
“I can’t imagine James Packer moving on from the Roosters but his father was a diehard Souths supporter,” said long-time member Joe Moussa.
