    Broncos admin are getting what they deserved trying to play the game with the old fox.

    I hope he causes them more grief.

    it's interesting how much the NRL mirrors the EPL in that way.
    Brisbane = Manchester
    Sydney = London

    The Broncos are the massive rich club in the Northern city who had a long serving successful coach that they dumped, just like Man U. When is there Manchester City coming?

    And that win against Souths came off a wrong call too.

    I seem to remember old salt Souths fans not liking Seibold as he white anted Maguire out of the gig.

    He should vaccinate the Broncos fans so they are immune from the disease plaguing the club

    The Titans cop a lot of flak, but the Donkeys are a far worse run club. The only reason they are profitable is because they have all of metropolitan Brisbane to themselves. They haven't won shit since the Titans entered the comp in 2007. Talented juniors choose Brisbane over Gold Coast as their preferred club due to past achievements and the third party deals on offer. Other than that the club stinks. It should be top 4 every year and winning premierships every 2nd or 3rd year with all the advantages it has.

    If ever you wanted an example of someone getting too greedy it’s this bloke. Was given a gilt edged opportunity at Souths with a good roster and no real expectations on him and he threw it away for a bit more money and the chance to live closer to home.

    If he’d have had two or three more years of results at Souths like he had in his first year, he probably gets an offer from the Broncos for his next contract anyway.

    instead he jumped at the Broncos job, knifing the clubs greatest ever coach in the process. On top of this, he jumped the queue in front of club legend Kev Walters. This has meant he’s had a target on his back from day one. He took over a young team that was always going to need two or three years of development and he doesn’t seem to have the balls to stand down Darius Boyd despite the fact that he hasn’t been a first grader for three or four years.

    He could well go from coach of the year to out of a job in the space of three years and given the way he’s carried himself and the fact that he’s been a complete dud at the best resourced club in the NRL, I doubt anyone will touch him.

    The year before he took over at Souths he was head defensive coach and we had the worst defense in the comp so I doubt he even gets an assistant job somewhere. Will be quite a remarkable rise and fall.

    Anyway, he’ll probably write a book and tell us all about it. His greatest talent is talking about himself and he’ll have loads of spare time.

    not really.

    Ferguson:
    a - was still winning championships; &
    b - retired on his terms.

    Bennett:
    a - wasn't winning shit
    b - thought he owned the joint

    Seibold has inherited problems created by Bennett. The Broncos f**ked up by already making their decision about Seibold before anyone else was even interviewed. Seibold may have been the one they eventually picked under a proper search, but at least give Demetriou and Walters a chance.

    And by the way, Ferguson's first 3 seasons were pretty shit, and he didn't win the championship until his 6th season in charge and not with the players he inherited.

    Most supporters want immediate results. If the Man Utd board gave in to supporters, they wouldn't have been the club they ended up being. Ferguson didn't go for short-term wins. He ended up rebuilding the club and making them a dominant force for two decades.

    To think those same flogs who wanted his head in the mid-80s ended up worshipping the ground he walks on.

    Seibold has created his own problems, the youth in the squad is by design, its like they wanted to clear out the older players and have an nyc team running out each week. On top of that he makes boneheaded decisions like keeping his most experienced forwards on the bench and starting with his least experienced forward pack.

    Siebold is a dud and so is the idiots that gave him a 5 year deal.

    once again, if you were a broncos squad manager, do you keep those guys and jag wins for the CV and placate fans without really competing for a premiership? do you think a spine of boyd, milford, nikorima and mcculloch and an undersized middle in mcguire was going to be part of a broncos premiership in the next 2-3 years? the recruiting and roster mgmt was already shit.

    or do you accept some short-term pain to try and set the club up for the next few years to really be a contender? he's got a 5 yr contract. i'd say that's his approach and he's got the ok from the board to do it.

    sometimes, fans are their own worst enemy. all they want is a win this weekend when it ultimately leads to nothing. and the fury is driven well by the media

    Getting flogged by 50 points regularly isn’t setting them up for success. If it doesn’t turn around soon those young guns will get sick of losing and look elsewhere for the chance to be competitive and guys like Fifita, Haas etc will have clubs lining up to get them.
