    Not to worry Dragonslayer. I for one look forward to the new “Mary Sacked” thread where we can all give thanks for the miracle of us parting ways with the ‘coach’.

    I reckon it would have twice the number of posts as the Sack Mary thread in a few days.

    1000% JD should be offered the job.
    The teams he has had a hand in have been entertaining to watch, and from what I hear he has had the respect of the players each time.
    The Cutters had a team of no names that performed well under him.
    Offer him the job.

    It hasn't happened yet .
    Don't get your hopes up.
    It Will be a waste of a season in 2020,
    If he gets sacked mid year next year .
    If it already isn't.
    Are we having a party when he leaves.

    don't get our hopes up, review will say something like, Mary is the best candidate due to issues beyond he's control we had a shit season, he wants to make amends and will increase he's work hours to 18hours per day and will also paint the toilets, plus we dont have $1.2m to give away...
    ## Not only did we sign him up for a further 2 years, we gave him an upgrade LOL!!

    Yeah he will probably put in 15 hours a day for the last game and we will be beaten by 30 instead of 20

    Unfortunately this is a very real scenario. The Board won't want to admit they got it wrong, won't want to throw away $1.2M, and won't want to shaft an Illawarra old boy.

    I feel for Mary. Put yourself in his shoes. Imagine you go into work today and your boss says here’s 1.2 million bucks to go away. Poor bloke.

    They can't afford not too, as they will lose sponsors, fans & players. It's past the point of no return now and the club must act or suffer even further.
    Surely the Board cannot be that stupid 3 times!

    Dennis, I would be happy with any on your list - would love to own a time machine which I could set back to October 2016 and have Jason Demetriou appointed. What a special three seasons we may have been able to have with his appointment.

    Having said that, my preference, assuming the imposter goes, would be for a genuine selection process where the position is advertised and candidates for the position put up their hand and present their credentials. Opaque backroom deals got us into this mess so getting rid of Mary would be only part of the necessary clean up. Wer'e frequently told footy is a business these days so why not select the best candidate through a business like and professional process?
