In November ' 98 there was furore when his agent Harry M Miller asked for an $8,000 fee for an update on how the Games were going Rod was asked to make to a visiting American business group. The Americans refused to pay and the s--- hit the fan with McGeoch claiming a mix up re other speaking fees he received from time to time and a 'bloody vendetta' against him from within SOCOG and Labor politics.

On 24/11/98 Rod resigned as a director of SOCOG, for the good of the Sydney games, as he put it.

Within a few days he was replaced by Marjorie Jackson, the Lithgow Flash.
