These are the most damning evidence to why McGregor shoukd never, ever be our coach.

35% win rate this year is laughable and this ready made excuse of the JDB incident ruining their season is just pathetic, as it didn't have any effect on 5 players being selected for Origin, or others playing in Internationals. If they were so psychologically damaged they wouldn't be able to be selected for these tough games.
All BS and our Board swallows it hook line and sinker.

Correct...If the Sharks and Roosters put a cricket score on us, then that helps a little more in terms of pressure on the Coach.

Tell me this isn't the lowest point of Dragons supporter history. We genuinely need our team to be belted for some action to be taken. I pleaded with the club to reconsider when they renewed his contract back in April. The fans could see this eventuating.

Agree mate, this has to be the lowest point in our history.

We’ve had plenty of lows in my 50+ years as a supporter but never with such a good roster - which clearly points to rotten, unaccountable Management, amateur coaching/mentoring and a ‘system’ that is embarrassing for supporters.

There were some who NEVER approved of McGregor from day one.

That's true.I remember not being thrilled but, then again, 'anything had to be better than price', right? I was willing to give him a go. The sack mcgregor thread began early in 2016 when he had been given every opportunity, and it was clear he wasn't up to it. Fast forward to almost 2020 and we are worse than ever.

Maybe the Roosters after watching our game today will do us a favour and rest most of their good players which may keep the score below 50.

Coach what is the game plan for next week against the roosters ? Do we prank the Roosters by telling them the game was moved to Wollongong and we run out to Jubilee and collect the 2 points by forfeit?

Roosters beat the Warriors 42-6 and the Warriors are better than us. They beat the Titans 58-6 who are the only team worse than us. So, if the Roosters turn up and take it seriously you'd think they beat us by something like 50-6. Anyone know if there's any decent movies on TV next Saturday night?

I was one. He should never have been the S&C coach. He wasn't qualified then either and the on the field performance suffered as injuries ran through the squad.

I'll be there until at least half time.
