wasnt aimed at you buddy.
Isn't it great to see how our coach, of five years l might add, has blooded so many of our juniors into first grade.
You are 100% correct, but I am over people criticizing other clubs, when in fact ( either locals or one clubs players ), we are on par or worse than say Easts...
Change the board. Stop blaming the coach as he is employed by the board. He is inept, but THEY chose him. No more, we are the high amightly of junior talent. Its 2019 FFS.
We are NSW's Gold Coast.
Gus asks the hard questions to the maestro . . . .
“ But Mary - what can you say about your shocking win /loss ratio ? “
That's why l live on the Coast and support Saints!
Sorry Gareth, Mary wouldn't understand that question.
I’m not renewing until McGregor is gone.
That, is so true
Well I think Fat Albert, is running the football dept.
What is ur take on this?
I'm not watching until he's gone.
And he's defs there round 1 next year so I'll give AFL a crack 2020. Ive never watched a game of that shit in my life but think I'll become a GWS diehard.
I won’t either. I think I’ll just give the NRL the flick. Was thinking about starting a new thread about everything I don’t like about the game now. Too many inconsistencies from basic refereeing adjudication to judicial outcomes, tpp’s and administration of clubs. Anyway....doesn’t matter, I feel defeated somehow. Funny though is how the first thing I do when I wake up is load the forum in hope of some good news. Maybe one day. But until that happens...
I went to my first game of AFL this year after being a "passive" St Kilda supporter for decades.
It's an absolutely briliant spectacle live, the atmosphere was really good and there's no bad spot to sit and watch. Also, the games generally don't get ruined by over-zealous or incompetent (biased?) refereeing decisions...
I live in the Manning so I probably won't get to many games in person but am considering getting a St Kilda membership and giving the Dragons the cold shoulder until they wake up.
I've followed St George from birth (1968), through thick and thin but this current regime is too thick for me.
We tried hard to sign Keary and he wouldn't sign.
Our set up is an anathema to top quality players.
Why would they come and destroy their careers under McGregor?
Actually I was alluding to something else....
As long as the calls go against Melbourne the way they did last night...I’ll still continue to at least watch some NRL games, can’t kill it completely yet.
There are many of us thinking likewise each and every day.
The forum and the members that make it, is our lifeline and therapy to the Dragons.
We can offload our frustration.
We can add some decent feedback to comments.
We can laugh & cry with the ups & downs of both the team and ourselves & our families.
We can support our team as one and we can support each other in time of need.
Friendships are formed and valued.
Amongst it all, we can collectively call for the sacking of McGregor and the betterment of our team.
Also a fellow closet 'Saints' supporter because of the 'Saints' connection.
And with just one Premiership in 147 seasons ( and that won by a single point ) you have no expectations like you do at the Dragons!
I'm awaiting the release of the club statement, released at 2am x-mas morning having named 2 (scapegoats) lesser known staff members sacked. Then the next paragraph will state how seriously they take the success of the club, with a few buzz words/phrases (Industry Best Practice, Synergy, Scalable, Core Competencies, Empower etc) thrown in. SFA will eventuate, we all know it.
Point taken T.O.T , but I recall when I was a kid and the old man would give us a couple of pennies to spend when the circus was in town ( once every 5 years ) and there was this speaking head who would say things when you deposited your penny and he would rattle on for a few minutes saying absolutely nothing .
Sort of reminds me of Mary . . .
