He was extended 2 weeks agoThis should be the greatest indication of all to the Raiders Board that Sticky's time is up.
It's been a pattern across his career, the lack of emotional regulation/stability that means his teams start well for a while, but he's never been able to keep them consistently going...because basically, he's a sook. He has no ability to control his emotions, which is hell on a playing group over a longer period of time.
I just can't fathom how a person of his age and experience thinks it is OK to say something like that in a public domain. He would have been thinking about it on the way in, yet still went with it.
His mates on 360 are going to have a hell of a job defending that. I imagine they'll either completely ignore it as an item, or write it off as the emotional outcome of a coach under stress on the edge of the top 8. Which is horse shit, because no other coach is out there in pressers calling opposition players 'gutless dogs', nor has it ever happened. I imagine they'll go with the latter.
Yeah, saw Gus Gould mention that last night (the kids playing). Ricky certainly likes a grudge.Apparently sticky's son played footy with salmon in the shire.... when they were 9 years old.
If this all stems from that and Ricky is salty about actions of a 9 year old child to the point he publicly abuses him near on 15 years later..... just wow.
