    So, Roosters could not possibly release Adam O'Brien to be the Sharks coach, but suddenly he is a possibility to coach Newcastle???

    There are 'strong connections' between Nick Politis and ex-NSWRL boss John Quayle (connected with the Knights)...

    Not to mention Joey, Matty, Freddy and Phil Gould being all Channel 9 and now NSW power-brokers... HMMMMM...

    NRL always wanted Newcastle to succeed, they view it as a major market.

    I like Newcastle and the Roosters, they supply NSW along with us.

    I am happy with Bomber, so whatever happens I wish them both luck.

    f**k Manly.

    O'Brien hadn't even started at Roosters when we needed a coach so I don't blame them for not releasing him. The timing wasn't good for them.

    It would be a very ordinary act to not allow an assistant coach to put their hat in the ring for a head NRL gig though outside of poor timing. They wouldn't lose him until this season is finished so it gives them plenty of time to find someone else.

    Newcastle would be a very good job, most of the hard work has been done in assembling the team.

    Be good to see Newcastle come good for the long suffering footy tragics up here.

    Be great if they got Flanno, he’d bring their abundance of good juniors to the next level.

    2nd choice, Toovey to reinstate the traditional Knights passion & pride!

    The NRL has said Flanno can't coach them.

    They are a f**king disgrace. Tell him how long he's banned for so he can plan his life. Pathetic how they're toying with someone's livelihood like this.

    It is also a case of we were a top 4 rival, why would the Roosters lose and assett to strengthen us?
    The Knights probably aren't seen as a rival to them.

    The Rorters have allowed a lot of their discards to go to the knights over the recent seasons.

    Flanno toyed with his own livlihood by putting young mens health at risk and then breaking the conditions of his suspension. So whose the disgrace

    O’Brien’s contract was that he had to give the roosters a minimum 12 months before asking for a head coach job.
    So the timing wasn’t right.

    Why is he seen as the messiah? Why Ryles? Why Fitzgibbon? Just because of the storm/roosters connection??

    What's your point? Murderers and rapists know the length of their punishment.

    Funny how the Roosters are “not happy” with the way Newcastle are planning to pinch some of their coaching staff. The Roosters have been pinching everyone else’s players for years so they can get f**ked as far as I’m concerned.

    I couldn’t give a rats about other teams welfare in the NRL. They couldn’t give a rats about the Sharks and I’m sure most Clubs would’ve hoped we folded as one less competitor in the Sydney region.

    Neighbouring Clubs would love to take over our junior areas and having a shot at our current senior players.

    I seriously don’t understand when a Sharks supporter says they’d love to see the Knights as a force again.

    With their apparent huge junior area they’ve taken Lee, Ramien & Brailey off us in the last two seasons. f**k them and the rest of the Clubs in the NRL.

    There’s only one Club I want to see as a force again and they wear the black, white & blue!

    I’d rather the Knights have success before the scumbag Roosters, dirty Storm or the merkins that are Brisbane.
