    We need a 100% buy out, not just the Illawarra 50%. In my view most of the problems we face are to do with the St George side of management. Nothing will change if we only sell 50%. As it stands, WIN/Gordon already have a share of the Illawarra side and have stumped up a loan as well. So a buy in of 50% would probably be in the form of shares instead of repayment of loan. If this is true it does nothing for the repayment of the debt to NRL or the up-grade of training facilities to be in-line with the top NRL clubs. Our leagues club will remain in a mess and our number of home games at Kogarah would be unlikely to change. No thanks, we need a buy with billions to spend to take on 100%.

    True pity our weak board and members who support the current board couldn’t overthrow the board and Doust 5 years ago. The dogs with Dib are under performers now they may do something with new faces at the helm. Dib was like Doust too self absorbed in himself. It was all about him not the broader organisation.

    Undoubted similarities to dragons ........dysfunctional, underperformance, substandard mgt, etc etc

    Difference is they take action, although the jury is out on whether they have replaced one problem with another??

    Point being they miss the semis once and take action...We make them once since 2011 and then re-sign a Rookie coach in the belief that things will change LOL.

    St George Dragons great Mark Coyne has ruled himself out of contention for St George Illawarra’s top job

    ST GEORGE Dragons great Mark Coyne has ruled himself out of contention for St George Illawarra’s top job.

    Coyne, who was the joint venture’s first skipper back in 1999, was considered the favourite to replace Peter Doust as chief executive, given his successful transition into the corporate world following a decorated playing career for his club and Queensland.

    But Coyne has distanced himself from reports he was in line to rejoin the club as CEO when Doust walks away after nearly two decades in charge, at the end of the 2018 NRL season.

    “I’m not interested in the Dragons CEO role as I am very committed to my current business and they probably need someone who has more operational experience in running a football operation,” Coyne said.

    Coyne has been chief executive of Employers Mutual Limited since 2012 and those in rugby league land predict he will one day run the NRL, or at the very least hold a prominent seat on the ARL Commission.

    Coyne returned briefly to the Dragons in 2016 to help review the club’s performance.

    [​IMG]
    The former Dragon won’t be back at his old club.
    He is not expecting to play a role in appointing Doust’s replacement.

    “I haven’t been asked to be part of process and again there are probably better qualified people than me who can run with this,” Coyne said.

    “I have great confidence in chairman Brian Johnston and know he will select the right fit for the club.”

    If the club is going to move forward as a professional organisation it needs to appoint an external candidate. I know I have said that I am not for or against a WIN/Gordon buyout because I dont have enough of the details to make an informed decision. However, now I am becoming more convinced that it is not going to be in the best interests of St George and the finger prints of the Gordon family seem to be everywhere. If a deal is being arranged, it has been going on for a protracted time and no details have been provided. This is a worry as whenever the cub has acted like this in the past it was because it was something the fans would not like (eg. appointment of coaches). Makes me worry what is being agreed to with the NRL.

    There is plenty of change as long as it's kept in house.

    We need a buyer for 100% of the Club. A 50% buy in from WIN / Gordon will do very little to improve the situation and could actually accelerate the NRL's wish for the Dragons to move all operations to the gong.

    If this puppet of a bloke Michael McDonald is the leading candidate to take over from Doust, then we are in serious trouble.
    This is his prediction some 5 years ago and is nothing more than BS and spin.....sounds familiar. If he currently manages the Marketing and promotion of game day, then know wonder we are screwed & he really should leave with Mr Doust.

    That assclown is the perfect candidate for our board. He is someone they can trust to fall in line, is an absolute spin-master (rivalling Doust himself) and nowhere near competent to take over as CEO, thus not being able to make the board members looks like the bunch of plebs that they are. He's an absolute shoo-in.

    And of course, much like the ascension of McGregor, many of the window-lickers in our fan base will be cheering because he bleeds red and white, knows our system and is anyone but Doust.
