    Gould sacked Griffin even though Griffin had the Panthers qualifying for finals football. His remark was that Griffin would never coach a team to win a grand final.

    Any person who knows anything about rugby league can see that Mary has not got a clue and has been clueless the past 6 years. Griffin is 10 times the coach Mary is so for me, someone needs to really ask Gould the tough questions and press him on the rubbish he is dishing up at the moment.

    God save the Dragons; nothing will save Mary McGregor.

    Gould is full of it.
    I cannot see how our fans are in any way responsible for the results?
    "Crazy" are those who are persevering with a coalfields comp. standard coach in the NRL.

    The best bloke to do a review is Big Bad Buzz Rothfield our board know if he was given carte Blanche to do a review the board would be gone along with the most hated man in Australia right now and wherever overseas Dragon might be. Phil Gould doing a love job for his good mate the good bloke is a slap right to our face. If they are fair dinkum about a review then tell Gus thanks but no thanks you doing the review is the same as McGregors wife doing it. Pointless and a waste of everyone’s time especially McGregors considering he only sleeps on game day and training days such is his devotion for results( I reckon he clocks in then jumps the fence and spends his day at the beach) If Buzz knows less about the game then Gus I will fondle McGregors balls and gaze lovingly into his eyes while validating his illusion of being an NRL standard coach all the while reassuring him a mentor for an NRL coach is why Bellamy and Bennett are so successful but not nearly the standard of artist that he himself is. Buzz is almost friendless anyway and wouldn’t hesitate to make another enemy for the sake of integrity.

    Who decided that Young has potential and will stay as an assistant ? He is the defensive or forwards coach and the team has been very deficient in these areas for years . Surely the board can see that retaining him will be nepotism at it's worse. Must be a great bubble down there in Wollongong to not see this.

    I am not sure McGregor's wife would be as lenient as Gould in her review though.

    Dont shoot the messenger.

    All you say is correct, however your hope that Gould would come in as Director of Football was not and is not on the cards. In fact, as I said yesterday this was a brilliant ploy by the board to stem the flow of anger headed to front office.

    Having Gould involved in a internal review, with a predetermined outcome, initiated by Mary himself, is pure gold.

    Well played Mary. Kudos. Survival 101.

    Vent at the board, not the coach. They endorsed this process and our new CEO makes Doust look like Jeff Bezos.

    Yes you are right. Unfortunately I have been living in hope for SGI to return to be run like a normal club.

    Now I see the light. Mary will be retained until early 2020. Then sacked for Dean Young to take over.

    It is so clear to me now.


    Mary gets his golden hand shake.
    Dean Young's father has come through again with another deal.

    Its obvious that McTeflon isn't going anywhere.
    So, Gould coming here to cast a different set of eyes , I would like him to answer 3 questions:

    1. Is the power game the only play McTeflon has? If not, why havent we seen any evidence of an alternative game plan?
    2. Why is the selection of player left to the player themselves, especially those with injuries or suffering fatigue?
    3. Why are players, who are out of form, continued to be selected?

    Yeah, I know that technically 4 questions.

    Yes Mary asked for help from Gould, so he would get a positive outcome for himself.
    These rumours he was going are all rumours, he was never going anywhere.

    Sorry mate,

    I know you are as passionate as they come, and offer well intended suggestions, just thought it was time as a collective to acknowledge that as long as the board remains on this path, then any changes will be superficial or sacrificial ( as in lower level employees, known as scapegoats.)...

    Expect a professional drafted review that will be lengthy in wording, but absolutely hollow in intent and substance, once this farcical review is public. Macro objectives, without any micro analysis.

    I've never seen this forum so united in our disdain.

    Its a sad state that such unity arises from the depths of despair.

    Perfect summation. What a rort.

    That would be very funny if it wasn't so true.
