    Maybe just some face-saving after Cleary said no.

    The thing people are not taking into account is the club isn't looking at Ciraldo as a fill in coach. They see it as the staff as a whole are caretakers of the NRL team. This includes Brandy, Wal, Ciro, all academy staff. It's a gamble but they are backing the staff to be good enough to drive results in the meantime.

    I'd like to see Griffin go to the tigers under Cleary sorting out their juniors

    Haha sounds like a great backflip by panthers! Suggests the media prsssure has got to Cleary and he’s backed off breaking his contract. Good luck finding a decent coach to fill in for two years Gus!

    If he's not a fill in coach then why talk to Cleary about 2021?

    They may back them as good enough to get results in the interim but if they have Cleary marked as their coach in 2021 then by definition Ciraldo is absolutely just a fill in.

    And if his results exceed expectations......then what?

    The Panthers still attempting to manipulate the narrative around all this so they look good is pretty hilarious.

    You cannot remove your fandom from the equation to be objective here.

    Still waiting for how the Tigers coach having a press conference is Panthers controlling the narrative.

    I'm following the facts. If Ivan had come out and said something damning for the Panthers so be it but he didn't. So far all the facts support me and it's people filling in gaps with their imagination that are against Panthers.

    Gould looks ridiculous now, he went all in and it backfired big time.

    Notice it always comes back to attacking me than actually proving the point.

    Maybe Fletcher coming out yesterday saying they would not pay out a coach for 2019.
    You think Ivan only made his mind up just before the conference. Operation save face.

    And how about Gould and "we won't stop NC signing else where" - the timing of that absolutely stinks. Trump play book type shite.

    Grubby episode by your club and Gould - Gould in particular has proved a conflict of interest with his media presence and Penrith duties.
