    Well to be fair, we will know pretty early if it isn't working so we can recruit a coach starting round 8 or 9 (or a tad later) and still be successful in player recruitment.

    When was Seibold recruited, out of curiosity?

    Don't mistake me for being happy that we are shit. I am just offering some thoughts. We could punt BA (rightly or wrongly) and Max will still have us operating under budget and the next coach will suffer the same problems.

    Well i don't have the benefit of any inside knowledge so i am just putting down some thoughts.

    I never professed anything to be accurate or inaccurate.........

    Hey @Kornstar , I wasn't having a go - just that there has been a lot of posts of late not just in this thread but in others that in their defence of BA are making some cool assumptions.

    Unfortunately, I too have a version of the truth that could well be inaccurate however I am hesitant to post it in any detail as if it is accurate, then whooaaa shit!!!!

    I was going to "like" your original post, because some of it is really close to the what I understand to be true. Other bits, not so much.

    Seibold was officially announced in September but they didn’t actually ‘recruit’ him as he was already their assistant coach and got promoted to head coach.

    I don't take it personally, i was just playing.

    Ultimately i will still follow the club whether they stick with BA or part ways with him. That's just what you do as a fan and hope some day they can be successful again at some point.

    Fair call, i was just curious is all. I knew he was their assistant and i guess it did seem like i was trying to make a point.

    Anybody know why Luke Burt left? Given Brennan is new to the NRL the opportunity there would appear remote and also The Titans arent exactly an icon for developing quality coaches? Was it that The Eels didnt want him as an Assistant Coach?
    Was it simply a money issue?

    Because he is bald and we already have a bald coach on the books.

    It also got my hackles up when Max was on the backpage of the telegraph talking about our culture problem. Purely because he is a government appointed administrator of the leagues club. If he thinks the Football club has an issue, why not discuss it with Gurr instead with a reporter from the telegraph FFS.

    Yeah both of these I agree with.

    Also remember that the Contracts the old board were dealing with, like Corey Normans were not brokered under Seward or The Pulmber as far as I understand, it might even go back to the previous board before that and Ken Edwards who jumped ship when he figured out the shit show the club was.

    That is why when we make changes at a football club, they might offer a quick fix but can cause significant long term issues.

    Now, reading the Annual Report, the administrator is marking all grants to the Football club as loans, meaning the football club is in something like $30M of debt, I am sure someone can correct me on that one.

    I liked this cos I am a bogan wanker with no class.
    I take that back. I do have a semblance of class, even if it is undetectable to most.

    I don't think Max cares about culture tbh. He is more concerned about $.

    My take on the article was that Max was ambushed with a bunch of questions and didn't quite respond as clearly and emphatically as he perhaps should of. I think in part the half baked response was because he hadn't been thinking about it.

    From there the DT smelt blood, saw a potential angle and the rest is history.

    Max only cares about saving bucks, we could win 3 spoons in a row and he wouldn’t give a rats.

    I'm with you, mate.

    I'm too fat (and often feeling very down) to wear classy clothes; I have several nice shirts in my wardrobe, but given my size, I feel ridiculously self-conscious wearing them out (I feel like I'm wearing a tent).

    My footy jerseys are not in any way classy, but at least I feel comfortable in them.

    I'd love to wear nice clothes more often, but sadly, I'm yet to find a manufacturer who can make clothes for the larger gentleman that actually fit nicely.
