I'm surprised at the level of animosity being directed to Girds following his commentary in the media. I don't think he has said anything more than what a large section of the club's fans, members and supporters are thinking and saying. Maybe it hits closer to home because he is a premiership Panther. This shouldn't stop him from criticising the club when it is warranted. If we're worried about a little criticism, maybe we should just suck up the poor performances and stick with mate-appointing Dave for the next 5 years. I'm sure the coach will explain to Dave how the staff and team are progressing and the coach himself is really learning how to do his job.
