    I’m starting to think that punting BA won’t make a difference.


    We are just a shit fcking club, no matter who comes in, it’ll be much of the same.

    NRL would do us a favour if they punted us.

    I legit thought BA was brewing something special here, he had managed to get us playing relatively consistent footy over the last few years and then that culminated in a top 4 spot last year.

    Now I realise the only thing he was brewing was a massive sloppy turd

    Don’t know if you’re sarcastic, but it don’t matter which coach is brought in. The club may be the problem, not the fcking coaches.

    Maybe we've just got the dumbest fans on the planet, who elected a series of f**kheads or incompetents to run the club, to the effect that we're now run by an administrator, whose primary responsibilities are the bottom line. Just a hypothesis.

    To be fair the merkins who got elected in the past did so on the strength literally only a few hundred people.

    The most recent constitutional reforms were defeated on 14 September 2017 when only 173 merkins turned up.

    There are 20,000 members however the “system” is not practical and makes it difficult for regular merkins to cast their vote. Clearly an on-line voting system is far more practical however as I understand it the Registered Clubs Act does not allow mail, on-line or proxy voting.

    Finally a proper scapegoat - The Registered Clubs Act.

    Shit bit of legislation. Probably written on
    Toilet paper.

    im still confused as f**k who votes for what and who does what

    the f**king leagues club members controlled everything - probably most of which couldn't give two tosses about the footy team as long as their pokies were turned on

    You may be right, but surely we also have the dumbest club/admin in professional sport.

    Agree we don't have the right admin. All successful clubs have a wealthy and influential leadership team.

    We needed someone with the financial clout of Moss to have an interest in the football operation. Until then we can't compete on the TPA front, which means we can't get the best coaches and players.

    Call me stupid, call me dumb, call me naive, but I’ve been in denial all these years. The club will forever remain a basket case, and I’m adamant we won’t win another comp.

    Arthurs inability to fix that right side defense last night was the nail in the coffin. Truely horrid coaching. First to not see it through the week and prepare, second to just stare at it with the rest of us rubber neckers for 80 minutes.

    The only thing that will save him next season is that there doesn't seem to be any appealing candidates out there to replace him. We are thinking Bennett for god sake. I'd rather stick with Arthur.

    Is there any young candidates out there. Burt maybe??

    Luke Burt is busy with milky bar adverts and then there will be promotional visits to shopping centres.

    Quite possibly. Though an administrator's balance of responsibilities are a bit different, so even if you had some genius in the role, you might well get what is happening now.

    I seriously cant believe some of the stuff being posted today.

    The greatest coach ever cant reprogram a team at half time. If put the whole left edge players on the right to fix the problem you whinge because we weakened our left edge.
