    Some of these quotes from our coach make me wonder if he's suffered some sort of head stomping related brain damage himself. Wow. This is what we've been reduced to.

    Unfortunately he pleaded guilty, he got convicted

    Lost me right there Paul.

    Mary, do me a favour and stay away from the press on matters like this.

    Man v man? Man v floor more like it.

    Just say that the guy did his time and move on, stop comparing and deflecting the case.

    "Unfortunately, he pleaded guilty ? ". WTF.

    So he should have pled not guilty ?

    "The fight happened and unfortunately it finished like it did"

    Unfortunately finished with a head stomping, you mean Paul?

    If I could be bothered looking for them, I could find half a dozen arrogant/stupid by McGregor since he's taken over.

    I think his first one, "Yeah, putting Dugan to centre was a mistake, eh?" sums up what an arrogant wanker he is.

    I remember that one mate.

    It was akin to Pricey saying " some got their pants pulled down " after a win in a press conference.
    Classy... NOT.

    More importantly, isnt this stuff screened prior to publication?
    I mean he sounds like the defence counsel for Packer.

    I want Packer.
    What I don't want is our coach making public social commentary trying to mitigate in some way what Packer did, and/or influence the NRL's decision. That task is one that our clubs administrators can justifiably take up.
    Mary needs to coach to what he has.

    Not a good look for McGregor to be doing this. Again I accept he was probably only answering questions put to him. Some circumspection wouldn't go astray though.

    I will go on record now and say that Mary will be no better than Price with regards to our performance on the table. He is all talk and the only thing he is good at is self promotion.

    Geez ,this just confirms what a lot of people have been saying about the club being at the lowest point in many years.

    What a sob story about Packer , he is a grown man who made the decision to be out on the piss and bash someone and then stomp his head, hardly the upstanding family man that he is now being portrayed as, not to mention the pissing on the field incident ,this bloke has proven he has little respect for anyone and yet the clown we are calling our coach feels the need to go into bat for him .

    I wonder how Packer's victim is, I'm betting he wasn't on a six figure income to tide him over while he recovered from his injuries.

    I'll second that , he certainly will need to do a lot of self promotion to erase the comments he has just gone to print with in this article,obviously nowhere near as smart as all the optimists are hoping him to be .

    He is as dumb as dogshit.

    I am a fan of McGregor's (unlike many on this forum) and I also believe that Packer should be allowed to play upon release from gaol (weather it is with us or not I don't care), BUT Mary your comments on this issue today are bloody ridiculous. Shut your mouth and let the proper authorities make their decision. These are comments unbecoming of a person in a position of authority. Mary, coach the team and keep social commentary to social commentators.

    Who are f**king useless anyway. People who decide to go on Today or Sunrise to tell the world what we're already bloody thinking, and then act like their words are revelation.

    It's pretty obvious that his intention here is to publicly pressure the NRL into registering the contract. I've made my feelings on Packer pretty clear in previous posts, but I'm not going to criticise the coach for trying to assemble the best team available. That's what he gets paid to do.
