Would you hate seeing Doust given the flick?
He’s very long term..
Truth is, Pearce should of been flicked many times before.
How many times do you poop on your employer and then ask for redemption?
five, six times?
They owe him nothing, he owes them nothing.
Rorters better off.
Pearce better off.
We move on.
I’ve said before that the concept of loyalty in league went out the window when Bennett cut Wally Lewis.
Professional sport is a business and like any business if you want to be successful you have to make decisions that not everyone agrees with in the pursuit of that success.
Our club(like a few others)struggles with this concept which is why we aren’t successful. Harsh but true.
This exactly , but we turn our club into a Retirement Village ........
Everyone goes on about the Roosters and Politis and how they are ruthless in everything they do in the pursuit of winning. Yet they persisted with Pearce for close to 10 years, just didn’t make sense.
He’s a perennial loser with the exception of 2013 when he had Maloney, SBW and Jennings to help him. And he has baggage as well.
Can’t believe it’s taken this long to give him the flick to be honest.
Agree with that, but when you replace Pearce with Cooper Cronk, its a no brainer really.
I have no problem with letting go club legends in the pursuit of being better. We just haven't grasped that concept, given we replaced Bmoz with Eto Nabuli, and replaced Duges with as yet, no one.
Clearly shows the difference between our club and those that seek continued improvement
Let’s nit forget we did actually offer Benji & Rein extensions which were turned down so we could still have had both last year
Back to Pearce I just love the way Easts management suggest he will always be a Rooster and has a special place in their hearts
If he goes to the right club he will either blossom or burn very quickly.
How true about Rein & Marshall. It took them to turn US down which meant we still couldn’t find it within ourselves to just cut them in the pursuit of change/success. When will we learn.
So a thread on Mitchell Pearce quickly turns into yet another cut paste of bagging the Dragons....
i think the goosters blundered. i don't understand why they did it.
cronk has maybe 2 years left in him & his best years are behind him.
pearceoff has plenty.
pearceoff is a tremendous first grade halfback - he's just a limp wrist at origin level.
Sharkies are the retirement village. Have you seen their forward pack? How old is Gallen anyways?
Doesn’t every thread head that way?
Well it is in the Dragons forum.
Pearce off Nick
Peptides have kept him youthful.
Well done to the Roosters - they have seen an opportunity to improve their team and didnt let sentiment stand in the way of them doing it. Pearce has been given plenty of chances. They've also bought themselves 2 years with the ultimate professional to blood a young halfback to take them forward.
Still cant see them winning the comp next year, but at least they are actively making efforts to head that way.
Players changing clubs .
Look at the NBA
happens all the time ,its a business unfortunately
I don't give a stuff about Mitchell Pearce or the Roosters. I'm more relieved he ain't coming anywhere near the Dragons! Sea Eagles can have him....a perfect match as everyone hates them both.
Still ironic that NSW won Origin in the only year he was dumped from the team.
