It seemed like 37 Jimmy .
well if Lomax is one of them OR Herbert Im eating my jersey......
They had a better understanding of Price's coaching talent than the Dragons Board members.
I thought that St George were going to pay the 6m loan to the NRL and get 100% ownership of the joint venture. So no hole and plenty of sponsors to pay for a new coach.
I'm pretty much convinced McGregor will coach us next year (not that I want that).
The fact remains that the board will consider playing finals football, leading the competition for an extended period of time and the real fact that the players "like" him, so a player revolt is hardly on the cards. And really, why would they revolt, the same players get picked every week, nothing to complain about there even when they're out of form etc. Anyone who does complain is referred to as a reserve grader and is promptly exited the next season.
McGregor is a great coach and a great bloke, just ask the players.
Yea I still like hunt as well,prob my fav player at the moment.
So have signed Bennett yet..,?
..sign him up Doust and all will be forgiven
McGregor is a great coach, just ask McGregor
Bennett is the Casanova of the NRL. He’s currently on the re-bound and will end up in the arms of his sweetheart (us) desperate to prove he’s still got it.
First thing he’ll do is appoint Nightingale as our ambassador and we’ll all immediately fall back in love with him.
Talk on the Radio NRL shows is that things are not as desired at Brisbane for Bennett who likes to have greater influence and control.
Also, quite a few of the younger players like Haas and Pangai etc, may seek to be released from contracts if Bennett is not the coach.
If Dragons could sign Bennett, he could bring some useful talent with him.....and probably Darius.
Even if he has lost some of his edge it would be better than persisting with the current setup and in 2 or 3 years he will retire and we could have better options and hopefully a title or two.
All good in theory..BUT we have no money...Would need to find and outside source.
Bennett won't want Millward, Mary, Hornby, Young or Head. So the odds of management signing him are very slim.
If we got Bennett and he brought Haas and Pangai with him, that would be a dream come true. He can leave Darius in Brisbane.
I think Bennett would want to have full control over recruitment. I don't know if he would want Millward, but I think he would be very happy to work with Dean Young and Ben Hornby.
If Gordon Tallis’ story about creeping ringing Sydney clubs is true, I hope like f**k he’s called ours.
We’re dumb enough to say no thanks.
We arent, Doust is.
Didn’t post last night coz honestly, I wasted enough time watching the **** that was dished up, I wasn’t about to waste more time ranting about it. Needless to say I was pi$$ed. I do agree with the general sentiments you’ve all posted though.
My mood this morning has not improved any. Monday morning I want two announcements. 1. Who the new CEO is. 2. That new CEO to confirm we’re going in a different direction coaching wise.
That’s the really crappy thing...even if the club is that way inclined, i don’t think anything will be done until the new boss is announced.
Spot on, this is the main issue
Our CEO is leaving , do you really think he will do anything to sack his mate Mary ? He’ll leave the mess for the new guy I think.
Bennett and Maguire are obvious choices but I doubt anything will happen this season.
Separate names with a comma.
