    No. I don't think too many people actually rate him any more.

    Signed a lot of good players and they all want to stay here.

    Also gave jobs to Cory Payne and Griffin

    I have heard it is a case of late stage, untreated syphilis, that is causing mental issues.

    I don't care if he's overrated, with his record of sacking coaches I want him at my club.

    He rebuilt the Panthers from the ground up and it was so good the Hook couldn't find the dressing room.

    Well played Gus my man.

    It is a made up position. Like Junior vice president.

    Most overrated GM? Perhaps not. In spite of their issues with Griffin, it's clear he's made Penrith a formidable club as opposed to the Canberra like mediocrity they had come to expect before him.

    What he is though, is the single most arrogant GM going around. The merkin clearly adores the smell of his own farts and will move heaven and earth to make sure his image stays untarnished.

    Gus should get David Gallop to coach Penrith.

    And who are they again?

    Got this awful feeling it's one of Zorba's titles. Not going to check to save myself the sad feels.
