    Sths roster wasn't bad enough to get the results that Madge achieved under his watch in 2017.
    To win only 9 games & lose 15 with a differential of 100 pts ISN'T a big rap of a coaching performance,& to be honest,is a miserable effort.
    It certainly doesn't indicate that he has all the attributes of a great coach.
    Most coaches win comps because they happen to have a very,very good roster[or cattle] which Madge had at Wigan & at Sths in 2014.
    The true indication of a good coach is how he can get a lesser squad to perform.
    Madge hasn't lifted the players one iota over the past 2 seasons,& therefore,he received his marching orders. His sacking was appropriate considering all that has eventuated over the past two years!!

    oi Doyen if madge had the same cattle as in 2014 and won another final we would be calling him the greatest coach souths have ever had FACT!!!...SHADOW...He had a shiiit team thats why he got shiiit results FACT!!! Seibold will need to buy some outstanding players such as bellamy/bennett have done or perish FACT!!!...S H A D O W...why is bellamy/bennett going so well/well its because they have the cattle why did the knights and tigpies and souths and a few other teams go to shiiit you guessed it we all had no cattle it aint rocket science bellamy/bennett wont do poorly because they both have top 4 team players in each side they cant fail even the mug on the street knows this FACT!!!

    The board asked Madge how he was going to improve performances with the twins being specifically mentioned. Madge believed in hard work and the board didn't think that was a satisfactory answer.

    Teach them were to run
    Teach them to lean into tackles with the F ball tucked tight under the arm
    Teach them F glue the F ball to their hands
    Teach them to hit the rib cage so hard with the point of their shoulders so if they dont hurt or break some ribs they force the F ball out
    Not this BS tackling up high
    Someone else can lock the arms and ball up we need to teach all the team to hit and hurt hit under the ball twist and push back
    Our tackling in 2014 was completely different we were pushing them back.....WE were attacking them....not getting pushed back another 10 to 15 metres after first contact...our defence is a joke teams laugh at our softness
    Thats what the twins need ...tommy rudonicus face slapping

    That'd be a part of it for sure but hunger is a big one......

    Agreed R20. Our attitude this year wasn't up to scratch and that showed in defence.

    Maybe Madge had lost his hunger?

    No I don't think so.

    I think he was very hungry but we just didn't evolve and we're playing 2014 footy in 2017 which just doesn't cut it....

    The game has moved past that now.

    There were some performances where they just didn't want to put their bodies on the line......

    No desperation......

    Who's fault is that? The coach drives the tactics the buck has to stop with Madge if that is what you think.

    You both have a point. Madge was definitely still hungry but his tactics of motivation obviously weren't working anymore. His yelling and screaming wasn't getting the message across. You could tell he was getting desperate as well as he was bringing motivational speakers to training sessions. If it was confirmed that he had loss the dressing room it wouldn't surprise me but it disappoints me that the boys just gave up on him like that. I see fault with the players and Madge.
