    The first priority of the Board is to win Premierships.
    Introverted coaching models are flawed and are a kin to inbreeding.
    The rest is details...

    I don't think there's any point in jumping on @SnowDragon. This place can become a bit of an echo chamber and people (with good cause imo) can go a bit overboard when venting their frustration with the coach, and the club for constantly renewing him.

    He acknowledges Mary has flaws, but doesn't seem to want to lynch him. I don't think that's worthy of an attack.

    Now maths isn't my strongest subject but, according to the article:

    So, finding an extra 10% of 28 = 2.8 days

    Add 2.8 to the already existing 4 = 6.8 (let's round that up to 7)

    Genius! to solve our problem he now need to see them 7 of the 28 days. Got to hand it to our supercoach, he's Cert iv in coaching is really shining through.

    Awesome, another bird-brain joins the forum.

    Not sure how good or bad he is? Actual results might be a good place to start.

    I am sorry if my response came across as an attack.
    It wasn't meant that way but this post is so off centre that I truly wonder about the agenda.
    What you are witnessing on this forum is the culmination of nearly 5 years of frustration with the misfiring coaching function.
    I have never wanted to "lynch" McGregor.
    All I personally complain about is the process by which we appointed McGregor in the first place, his performance as an underqualified FG coach and his constant rationalization of failure that is evidenced by his myriad of excuses.
    SD's sentiments about McGregor's flaws may have had some credence in year 1 or 2 of his tenure but not now.
    People vent for a reason. They are fed up and upset.

    I think a lynching is justified. F*** him.

    So, Paul feels his staff and players need to improve by 10% for us to go all the way and that Origin and the training regime is to blame for our form slump in the second half of the season.

    For the past 5 seasons, Paul has improved marginally each season with the assistance of consultant after consultant.

    The team would improve by 20% overnight if you simply resigned Paul.

    A coach, a coach, my kingdom for a coach.

    That’s a bit harsh..

    There are plenty of folk on here who know how to read & type and don’t need any coaching or assistance whatsoever..

    Maybe your figure should sit closer to 50%..

    I think there needs to be loud protests from the fans in order to ensure this is Mary's last season with the Dragons. It is time our new CEO was put under pressure in the same way that Doust was dealt with a few years ago. To me it seems that nothing has changed with the WIN by-in and the appointment of the new CEO. If Mary is extended, it is fair to say that fans will walk in droves.

    OK Possm -

    I guess it’s CEO hunting season after all.

    If Waterboy’s extended it’ll be open season & he’ll find out what Doust suffered for extending the Loser-

    Nightmares from The Hill

    And Endgame.
    Buckle up mate!

    NO, THAT WILL BE TOO LATE! Now it is time to rise up BEFORE the damage is done.

    And if even correct the relevance of that statement?
    We come here to express an opinion and amongst all the opinions that are posted here the vast majority in relation to the coach are negative and the sentiments for that are clearly articulated.
    So in this place which is the 100% of people that matter for the sake of this discussion your opinion re the coach is about 0.001%.

    There is no official avenue for the members/fans to challenge the poor decision making of Club management. The current policy in place in which members have no say on who is installed on the SGI Board from the St George side is there for a reason. It stands in the way of good management and accountability.

    It is my humble opinion that if St George Leagues Club fans were able to vote for their delegates on the SGI Board, Mary would not be extended and probably would never have been given anything other than the appointment as interim coach for the remainder of the season when Price was sacked.

    So it seems to me that the only way to make things happen is to protest loudly and to co-opt the fans and media to join in this protest.
