Parramatta CEO Bernie Gurr has called for players salaries and contracts to be public knowledge much like they are in the US. 

Gurr who spent time in the US before taking on the role as Parramatta Chief Executive, believes it would add more interest to the game. 

“It adds a bit of theatre to the game,” Gurr said.

“People would say my right centre earns this and your right centre gets paid less but is twice as good as your guy.

“It’s no different to people who run public companies, the chairman, CEO and CFO — their salaries are all published. And if they did that, they can publish my salary if they want to.”

In the US, salaries of professional athletes are common knowledge with an updated list distributed annually.
