    its time we had an investigation into how positions are being filled on both the board and coaching staff grant mayer is an experienced football club ceo but was passed over for osbourne, ando was sacked and his job just handed over to a rookie without being advertised
    (who knows what other applicants we may have had) all positions should have selection criteria which anyone who wants to apply must have not just jobs for the boys

    Thank Christ a comment on this article with a little logic applied. Some of you Merkins need to wake up.

    Kearney a class act to the bitter end at Eels

    BY PETER STERLING
    24 Jul, 2012 04:00 AM
    I WAS once reliably informed that there are two types of first-grade coaches: those who have been sacked and those who are waiting to be.
    Last week Stephen Kearney went from the latter to the former.

    Not surprisingly, he handled the situation with the dignity and class he has shown throughout his troubled time in charge of the Parramatta Eels.

    He revealed that it was not working out and was taking a toll on his family and there is no doubt that was surely the case.

    But Kearney has been a dead man walking for a while now with nine wins from 41 games – never enough to cut it in the NRL.

    It was also becoming apparent that it was affecting the man himself. Steve appeared to be a physical shadow of his former self.

    Maybe he has been combining a strict training regimen with his love for yoga, but he certainly looks to be a skinnier version than he was at the start of the season.

    He goes out on a winning note following the Eels’ upset victory over Melbourne, but he has every right to walk away with mixed feelings about what we saw at Parramatta Stadium on Saturday night.

    The blue and golds produced their most resolute performance of the season, prompting the valid question as to why there hasn’t been similar efforts on a weekly basis over the past year and a half.

    I watched the team’s showing against Manly three weeks ago and came to the distasteful conclusion that some players just didn’t have a dig.

    When Sea Eagles halfback Daly Cherry-Evans raced away to score his try that afternoon he passed a number of Parramatta players jogging back while the Steve Matai break was still in progress. It included the man who had raced up out of the line and missed the key tackle in the first place.

    There were reports in some papers that Steve had “lost the dressing room”.

    What, for goodness sake, does that even mean?

    If it is that the players aren’t happy then it is more a reflection on them than the man in charge.

    Said nothing new. Doing his best (without bragging) to state that he left a legacy of a strong crop of juniors.

    Did not go near sledging the board, when given the opportunity.

    Eels always had strong juniors? I don't get all the excitement?

    I expect better from you.
    Are you really that naive?

    Like how he doesn't let the Kiwi team offload? :roll:

    Kearney lets players offload if they're good at it. When he played he was a great offloader himself.
