    Are there any clubs left that would employ him? I thought when parra cut him no one would be stupid enough to give him a job but not just one but two did. Who's next?

    Well apparently the rumour mill says they are chasing Ricky Stuart, so smarts isn't coming into their decision

    Personally I think he should give coaching away, maybe a coaching directors/job "upstairs" at another club might be his best option if he still wants to be involved in some capacity.

    Stuart started coaching about 8 years ago and has won a comp. Smith started about 30years ago and won jacksh*t. No comparison in my books.

    Correct. Even he's better than Smith.

    Lol, without Fittler and Gould and Graham Murray's recruiting in the two years before 02, then Stuart wouldn't have a premiership. In 2005 Rooster's still had one of the strongest side's in the comp but were completely exposed. It was thanks to Stuart we bought some of the most overrated players in the comp, rather than blood any of our talented rookies.

    I'm not arguing that Stuart is some sort of super coach but he sh*ts all over Smith as one. This is some sort of record for him though, losing the players after 1 year.

    Well maybe I went too far but at least Hagan has a g/f ringl to show his grandkids. Whats Smith got? Some framed pics of the penguin wearing a torpedoe?

    Kudos to Smith. For 30 years he's been masquerading as a first grade coach and has made a lot of money out of a lot of rubes. No wonder he's so relaxed.
