    After a disastrous capitulation in 2017 which culminated in red faced embarrassment for all involved with the St. George Illawarra NRL team, there is still no official statement, assessment or explanation forthcoming from the club.
    As hard as it is to rationalize and make excuses for, the club should be obliged to make a statement at least.
    While the focus has conveniently been diverted to Hunt and Graham's arrival, I for one am interested in what the club has to say to the long suffering fan base about the 2017 season.
    Instead all we hear is crickets...
    Any thoughts or insight?

    Bang on, DP.
    Treating us fans with total contempt.
    Fair to say they are a dictatorship who answer to no one.

    It's not rocket science. Rotate the bench, preferably forwards.

    I have asked our corporate partner rep the same thing. He rang last week to talk about renewing our deal.

    I politely asked about the end of season review....He is yet to get back to me.

    I'll keep you posted.

    What do you want the club to say to the fans? "Sorry guys, we screwed up but next year we should do better. Maybe. We hope"

    I agree. Seriously how long does it take to change a "6" to a "7"?

    I think the less said the better.

    You, the fans, know that anything said iby the club is just going to raise more questions and have you forming your own opinions anyway.

    When you fall short like you did, after the start you had, what honestly could be said? You know the truth. If the club says anything it just makes them accountable and thats not what the Dragons club/board do.

    End of season review. Ha. We had one of those at the end of 2016 which spawned the ‘committee’. This committee saw us finish 9th which was ahead of where we finished in 2016, therefore an improvement. What more do you want*.



    *Please read with extreme sarcasm.

    We need an independent panel to review the committee to then form a new sub-committee to then pass on the recommendations for the coach and team to remain the same but keep at least 10 ex players noses in the trough. WIN will film it and broadcast it on their network as a reality show The Club!

    In hindsight that is an accurate description of what unfolded last year apart from the TV show - less reality, more Greek tragedy.

    Well one year, the club says here's a review with well intentioned appointed commitee members eg Mark Coyne so the fans can be informed what went wrong and the process in place to fix it.

    The next year nothing?

    WHAT THE HELL ARE WE SUPPOSED TO THINK. Just sweep 2017 under the carpet! Perhaps dragons management tell us why no review this year?

    I’m confused. Are you shouting at me or asking me a question?

    It’s really not clear on either count..

    There was a review, unfortunately it happened when the coach was extended.
