    Marina Go didn't. She sounded completely clueless on Fox. She needs to stay the hell away from the media. Feel sorry for Tigers fans.

    Tigers should be concerned that their coach has actually contemplated leaving with 2 years to run on his contract.

    When they sacked Cleary Gus said it was because of burn out and him not coping, Cleary called BS.
    Gs sacked Griffin and said it was because of old school relationship problems. Griffin calls BS.
    I see a pattern emerging!

    Problem is, that is exactly what they wanted, they just got caught and surprised by the backlash so changed their story. Where is this frontrunner for the job Gould had on Monday before all this blew up?

    Don't know. If it was Ivan I'd be asking why did it change. Did they ask and he indicated he was keen?

    Bennett is another name being thrown around pretty regularly.

    Watch from 3 mins 30 secs, it is obvious he has someone lined up for the job for next year and was waiting on his answer, story changes next day when they are caught out. Panthers are a lying grubby club!

    The ones who come out of this looking bad are those imbeciles on Monday's hilarious episode of NRL 360,and the f/wits who lapped it up.

    Never mind mistakenly thought you were actually looking to discuss it.

    What you just said doesn't even make sense as a reply to what I said.

    You asked where is this coach who was front runner.

    I said "Don't know. If it was Ivan I'd be asking why did it change. Did they ask and he indicated he was keen?" I also mentioned that bennett has been me tioned a lot.

    You start ranting about being grubby club.

    Makes sense.

    Panthers story went from being we have someone in mind for the job on Monday, By Wednesday it started to move towards yes we spoke to Ivan but we are willing to wait until 2021 and have a caretaker coach until then. The Panthers were trying for Ivan in 2019, thought they had him, sacked their coach and then back off once the backlash started. They have been trying to save their reputation ever since, stop defending their dirty behaviour.

    I hope so. I love the idea that someone has deliberately made Bee Sting look this stupid (besides Bee sting himself)

    That's twice you've missed the question of ok why would that change? Did Ivan promise something?

    I'm not defending Ivan, I would guess he was in a conversation about joining Panthers next season and help create all this mess, that all changed because of the Tigers response and the media and community backlash. You continually defend the action of the Panthers in these events, they quite obviously thought they could get Ivan to break his contract with the Tigers, that is a grubby act.

    I could just as easily say that Ivan approached us and is now backtracking to save face.

    That's a hell of a lot of if's in a game that can change dramatically in a short space of time.

    Except the Panthers have admitted to raising the discussion about him coaching the club again, you really are a gymnast trying to avoid seeing your club in the poor light that the majority of the NRL community now see it in.
