    I don't think it is a problem finding a coach who is willing to get a touch up for a couple of years, but more boards, chairmans, ceos, members and fans who have to be willing to accept it.

    Well said, but when you have been waiting as long as we have for success it is a hard thing to do. Even harder when a few short years ago we were cheated out of a GF win. Even harder when you still see those cheating pricks continue to be a force while we have become a laughing stock.

    Shame we didn't pinch Gus before the Panthers did, him and Cleary have done a fantastic job.

    Yes, but without external interventions, there's frig all chance of this happening under our current organisational structure.

    Between that and Stuart's article I think some rubbish is being put on the propaganda trail. That article basically says Stuart is a good coach, if everyone else is doing the work for him. Stuart could've come to canberra at any time early in his post-playing career as an assistant coach and waited for the opportunity to coach them.

    He had a grea rooster team but it just looks like it was fittler that carried Stuart. Once fittler left, roosters turned to crap (it's been similar for nsw origin since fittler and johns retired).

    I am hoping we get Taylor as our head coach. And I hope we smash the raiders (sticking it to sticky for the news headline). I am still not sold on Henry, given the talent he's had at his disposal and the lack of success he's got from that talent.

    I have never been able to cop him but Stuart has now catapulted to the top of my f**kwit list. I wish his family all the best but I wish his coaching career all the worst. I want them to lose every game next year. If the NRL were smart they would put our game against Canberra at home as the season opener.

    PS I'm not sold on Henry either. Could Someone like Rick Stone, Tony Smith or Justin Morgan be the wildcards or interim coaches if we don't get our first on contract choice? I know who I would take as an interim seeing that our defence is diabolical. Any guesses?

    Henry does have his side playing attractive styles of play. Look how Campese played under him at the Raiders in 08. He could do the same for J Hayne.

    But he has had the best player in the world in his team and gotten nowhere, Murray did way more than Henry has ever done!

    This year they should be having the week off right now (they are a top 2 side, easily), it wasn't till he was sacked that the team pulled their fingers out of their asses!

    He is a better coach than our last 2, but i still don't really rate him.......imo he should have stayed at Canberra instead of shafting them!

    Those would be the fans of the club that you just screwed over Ricky.
    You really don't give a shit about our club at all, do you.

    I would guess that even when he signed, he didn't care......me personally i want a coach who wants to be here......i think that's why i want Taylor, he did his apprenticeship here and it just feels right to me......
