    Not the fact they were let go but there was no one in mind to replace them. That is the ridiculous part

    So you say you aren't a name dropper, but then proceed to name drop several names in the same post. :lol:
    When people rightfully point out how idiotic your posts are, you respond with crap like "everyone has the right to blah blah" and supposedly life-defining quotes. Here's a tip; I live my own life, as does everyone else here, and trying to argue with us, call us idiots, and then attempt to teach us life lessons is pathetic and stupid. Do every Eels fan a favour and f**k off to a forum that actually gives a damn about the Raiders. What part of "Parramatta Eels forum" can't you grasp? If you are attempting to take the high and mighty route, maybe common sense would dictate you leave us "hapless jokes" to our own devices when clearly you aren't going to convince us of anything?

    Thats a line that keeps getting trotted out all the time which doesn't wash with me. The coach didn't want Mateo, Inu and Keating at the club for various reasons some of which include lack of discipline which i have no problem with. Surely he had some idea who was going to replace them all.

    Why not? He admitted it himself at the time. We didn't really need a replacement for Inu because we still had a backline of Hayne, Burt, Reddy, Tahu and Grothe contracted for 2011. It was just unfortunate that after Supercoach arrived one of those decided to retire, and another one was released. Kris Keating's bench utility role was replaced with Casey Maguire, and Mateo was replaced with Maitua. But keep saying those players were never replaced...

    Someone also mentioned Kingston, it was also well documented that Schubert wouldn't let anyone take a pay cut like the players offered, our hands were tied.

    I think facts are getting in the way of who we can blame.

    Ando may not be blameless but FMD you would think he was the one who solely destroyed the club and the current mob who hired the worst coach in history keep deflecting and blaming everyone but themselves!

    At the time, Poore and Shackleton were theoretically very good signings. There was no way of predicting Poore's poor performance and injuries, and no way of predicting Shackleton's injury (if he didn't receive that serious injury he might have turned out to be a great acquisition if that's how you spell it). And I remember almost everyone thinking (I had my doubts) that getting Tahu was a real coup. As for Keating, I reckon Anderson was right in getting rid of him. Mateo and Inu, despite there brilliance, were just not getting what the coach wanted from them (a bit of restraint and some consistency). Hindsight's wonderful, but at the time, I think Anderson basically made the right decisions.
