    Sort of agree. This talk of Gould looking at things has deflected the heat on Mary’s job. Listen to the fans you muppets (they seem to have a better understanding of things than you guys). Gus to me is a wanker but f**k he knows his stuff. I’m sure he’s helped Freddy with the origin team over the last two years. Come back to coaching please!

    Phil Gould must be loving Nicks Pay Check, watching the Rorters take another Premiership.
    Seriously our Coach, Board, our so called sugar Daddy, Huge Imposters!

    Sammy I have never been to the ‘ Black hole of Calcutta ‘ but I believe that is where we Dragon fans are at this point in time would be the nearest thing to it .

    So that ever so thin ray of light that you have just provided for us with will give us hope .

    No wonder Mary asked Gus to do the review - do you hear his comment about how the wabbits won the second half ! He and the maestro think so much alike that they could be twins . Lawd help us all !

    No Shane next year i’m afraid. As for Uncle Nic the Roosters fielded an all international representative backline tonight. Seven international backs not to mention a Kiwi international prop and the NSW Origin captain (to name but two) in the forwards and they are not over the cap? Gee the coffee must be better in the Eastern Suburbs. I know we were accused of buying premierships in the 1960s but at least there wasn’t a cap then. No media questioning, no questions asked by anyone. Comical really.

    Sorry fellas, with comments like this below from bollard head, it is little wonder we have become the laughing stock.

    Origin is different. Nothing could save Fittler at club level.

    Well, lets take a positive spin here.The ch 7 ëxclusive is crap as channel 9 would rip Gus contract up,Johnson has to come out in the next couple of weeks and make a statement when this review is over.The longer he takes to do this would suggest to me that indeed there is something happening behind the scenes..The Board would surely now be suprised by the supporters reaction and the falling crowd numbers is certainly a worry and a symptom of their anger.With no new players for next year it looks even worse and they would have to come out of their holes and be accountable.. Boards don't like being exposed and would far prefer to be invisible and keep on the gravy train. The review also gives them a sort of face saving exercise that yes they were hasty in signing the bald one up but they have corrected this due to events and performances after this signing.

    We can be cynical ( it's in our DNA ! ) but the dynamics have changed in the past 3 months and the losing streak has at least given us a chance that something will be done to remove the main culprit..

    It's not Mary who is running the club, it is Craig Young who is running things football on behalf of the board.

    Cant agree.

    Based on history. The only reason the Club will await a full release is that they buy time and appear to be doing something. The news cycle never stops.

    With the semi's now on, a GF around the corner, a few off field scandals, our story will become page 8 snippets.

    There will be some well scripted release with broad recommendations, a few sacrificial lambs and then off to next year.

    To release so called full finding now would be the Club admitting they did f**k all. They may be inept, but they are also cunning and experts on self-survival.

    My 2 cents worth anyway.

    Used to feel that way, but now i just think they are the envy of the league. They have built a winning culture.

    One Club Players that debuted for the Chooks.

    Billy Smith
    Daniel Tupou
    Joseph Manu
    Lachlan Tim
    Latrell Mitchell
    Boyd Cordner
    Isaac Liu
    Jake Friend
    Mitch Aubusson
    Nat Butcher
    Victor Radley

    Keary unwanted at Souths.

    Tedesco and Cronk could have chosen any Club, and chose the chooks. Money ? Probably, but Cronk and Tedesco are winners and chose a club to deliver silverware.. B Morris, same.

    I ask if Teddy was offered 10% more at other clubs would he have gone ? Doubt it.

    Even JWH, although starting at Manly, became a success at the Chooks as their longest serving prop.

    Edit. Turns out I don’t know what I’m talking about.

    Not a great surprise I suppose.
