While in office, Hawke signed off a testimonial video for his mate with the words "Good on yer, Kerry, you've been true blue [loyal]. Packer believed that people could be bought.
In , before he pulled off perhaps his greatest coup in establishing World Series Cricket , he was stuck in talks with the Australian Cricket Board about television rights to Test matches.
He also liked to win, especially at gaming tables around the world, where tales of his successes, losses and extraordinary tips are legendary.
Yet Packer's one weakness was his health. His biographer Paul Barry said males in the Packer dynasty loved a bet, hated paying tax, were excessively secretive and tended to die young with heart trouble.
On all counts Kerry was no exception, and was aware he was living on borrowed time. A largely unknown Kerry Packer arrived in London in late May Marlar's aggressive, indignant interrogation of Packer came unstuck when Packer proved to be articulate, witty and confident that his vision was the way of the future.
The main goal of his trip was to meet the game's authorities and reach some type of compromise. He made a canny move by securing Richie Benaud as a consultant.
Benaud's standing in the game and his journalistic background helped steer Packer through the politics of the game. Cricket's world governing body, the International Cricket Conference ICC , now entered a controversy initially perceived as an Australian domestic problem.
It wasn't in the power of the ICC to do so  and Packer stormed from the meeting to deliver the following unadulterated declaration of war: .
Had I got those TV rights I was prepared to withdraw from the scene and leave the running of cricket to the board. I will take no steps now to help anyone.
It's every man for himself and the devil take the hindmost. This outburst undid any goodwill that Packer had created during his earlier television appearance, and alarmed his contracted players, who had viewed his scheme as being as much philanthropic as commercial.
A number of the signed players now considered withdrawing. The case began on 26 September and lasted seven weeks. The cricket authority's counsel said that if the top players deserted traditional cricket then gate receipts would decline.
Packer's lawyers stated that the ICC had tried to force the Packer players to break their contracts and to prevent others from joining them. Justice Sir Christopher Slade considered the following nine points: .
Justice Slade in his judgment said that professional cricketers need to make a living and the ICC should not stand in their way just because its own interests might be damaged.
He said the ICC might have stretched the concept of loyalty too far. Players could not be criticized for entering the contracts in secrecy as the main authorities would deny the players the opportunity to enjoy the advantages offered by WSC.
The decision was a blow to the cricket authorities and, adding insult to injury, they had to pay court costs. English County cricket teams were pleased as their players who had signed to play for Packer were still eligible to play for them.
Official cricket won a series of minor victories — Packer was unable to use the terms "Test match" or call their team of Australians "Australia", or use the official rules of cricket, which are the copyright of the Marylebone Cricket Club.
The obvious problem was preparing grass pitches of suitable standard at these venues, where none had existed previously.
By common consensus, it was considered impossible to create the pitches in such a short time. One-Day International caps.
