    The NRL isn’t issuing any reminder. They were contacted by Webster so what could they say. Webster has written this rubbish piece to protect his good mate and offer up ready made excuses.

    So it’s obvious that Webster & McGregor are mates and he’s just thrown in a missile of a story, probably under command!
    The club should be looking beyond Flanno and Dean Young for all potential coaches for 2021 and start being proactive.

    Some considered it disrespectful to the coach, who is a good man under enormous pressure.

    Please.

    Waterboy, Webster & all the Murdoch cronies can’t hide forever from the numbers that tell the truth & matter for fans, players, sponsors & culture:

    11th, 8th,11th,11th,7th,15th

    9813 (worst crowd average - 2019)
    Amen

    Disappointing article coming from Mr Webster....McGregor has had more than enough time....



    Sick and Tired of the he is " a Good Man " quotes....

    If he really is such a good man , he would have handed in his resignation after 7 years of well below average results....

    All Mr Webster is doing is driving fans away from the game...had a gut-full of these extremely unbalanced stories in Mcgregor's favour.

    Should have pulled the pin 3 years ago....

    Webster, Kent, Crawley et al barter & pawn their journalistic integrity on a failed Waterboy without credentials.

    Warum?

    Get some truths into the equation fellas

    - go interview a dozen lost juniors & they’ll open your f**kin* eyes about the fraudster

    What a quality piece of journalism. Let me see, I will call the NRL and ask them if Flannagan can reduce his ban. So, what was he expecting them to say!
    "Of course, when McGregor gets the sack we will consider overturning his ban"! Imagine if they'd said, yeah absolutely, the media frenzy would be chaotic, not to mention further disrupting our season.
    I mean seriously, Flannagan has been back as an assistant for a little over 2 months and the season hasn't even started yet!
    Of course they would revert to the line of the current ban.
    IMO, Flanno wont be head coach in 2020. That role will be filled in the intrim by Shepherd or Young (hopefully, the former).
    McGregor being a "good man" has zero to do with his ability to coach. Dumbest statement I've read this year, and there has been many so far already, but this one takes the cake.
    There are several 'elephants' in the room at present, alonh with a few monkeys and even a few sloths. Flannagan isnt one of them!

    BUT it doesn't matter according to Webster, we must cut him some slack. Linespeed summed it up perfectly , how many more excuses can you expect from a coach that has performed ( as the longest serving coach ) 11th, 8th,11th,11th,7th,15th AND 9813 (worst crowd average - 2019).These are the FACTS and dont reveal the damage done to the juniors and the fans themselves. It's a fu--en no brainer !!!

    Very disappointing article by Webster.
    Incompetence accepted because McGregor is a mate. Hell how many years has the fool had.

    And Webster is a Dragons fan. FMD.

    Why are we the only team in the NRL to be judged by how good a bloke our coach is? Every other coach is judged by on field performances.
