    I won't be forking out for the membership.

    Matt Elliott seeing out his contract means we have another year before a decent coach can come in and start to take us in the right direction. At the very earliest... we might be a decent team mid 2010.

    I've asked for more information and who specifically did they get the information from.

    whos your daddy i disagree .A good coach makes a plan to suit the players he has.Elliott has one way of doing things no matter who is on the field.A good coach does not have several players asking for releases .You may not be aware but elliot would tell players on the day of a game they where not playing

    Not to mention that Elliott intends to stay much longer than that...
    If the board are stupid enough to keep him this time, who says they're not stupid enough to re-sign him? :crazy:

    I think he will be with us still guys.

    Lets give him one more chance.

    Remember in 05 and 06 we weren't the best and Elliott was not there.

    I think we will improve next year, but we will need a couple of 'old heads' to keep the youngsters in check.

    My reply I got from that message is the source is someone who works in the Penrith Management. A fairly good source from what I've been given.

    Well the plot thickens...

    Edit: Maybe they got it wrong. God knows....

    just when we thought it was all over.

    My guess now, is that the board is in disarray.

    Half of them want him, the other half want him to go.

    unbeleivable.

    i hope someone from the club is looking at p1 now there are 44 people on there.This could be a make or break decision by the club.Clearly people feel strongly about this

    LOL.
    Maybe they are in denial.
    "Elliott is sacked!... He is!" :sarcasm:

    Looks like we're doomed to another crap season next year with Luke Lewis at halfback, Nathan Smith at Lock, and players being picked out of position every week... for starters :(

    I've apparently confused them now with official statements on PI and Fox Sports. Very weird, they've been spot on before.

    I want confirmation as to whether Matt Adamson has been given the flick or not. Lots of hearsay but nothing confirmed yet is there?

    Is Adamson still hanging around too?

    From a distance that seems a bad move.

    As for Elliot, well I do not rate him, but hey he has a contract.
