    Agrre with all but wishful thinking. I think he is more excited about getting 1st shot at a Top 13 position under McNoIdea

    Ha....wait till you see him in the Dragons gear and get interviewed..standing shaking Mary's hand
    Wait there..Dragons media may not bother. Too informative and too much commonsense for our supporters.

    Yes mate,

    Flanno probably insisted that he could only put up with McIdiot for a maximum 12 months, anything after that, McGregor would have to go before he could commit to a second season.

    Sounds fair to me.

    I just hope that if McIdiot does get sacked around the middle of the year maybe NRL will end his ban as release him as time served for good behaviour

    I believe that is why Sheppard was hired; a Sheppard / Flanagan combination. The only problem is that Dean Young is still there and so, the possibility of an old boy's deal being cooked while we speak.

    The salient point here is if Young was/has been grandfathered into the top coaching job, why hire Flanno in the first place? Plus go through ALL the rig-marol of due diligence and noting his restrictions just for 1yr?
    Its a lot of hassle just to get him on board and reality is he isnt a coach of anything atm, just an assistant to Mc85mins.
    Again, why do all this if there wasnt a long term plan, after all they could have kept Hornby to do the same job.
    Theres a lot more to Flanno and Shepherd than whats been told.

    I would say Shepherd will take over if Mary is sacked. He probably has an agreement with Flanno that if he takes over head coach he will be a puppet to Flanno. I personally would have preferred Fitzgibbon for several reasons 1. He can take over straight away 2. He is largely credited with the NSW blues defence and the Roosters which are both class leading, he would be perfect to take over that aspect of the game. 3. Taking him away from the Roosters slightly weakens one of our bitter rivals, its a war out there.

    Flanno was hired for a year so mcgregor wasn't fired. Gus and Flanno was a smoke screen thought up by shifty mcfester himself to save his own skin

    Don’t be suprised if at the end of his ban Flanagan is back at the Sharks.
