    It’s the Titans’ fault?

    f**k you, Gold Coast. With your sun and your surf and your beautiful people and your Mary extensions.

    Evidently on Instagram a young kid posted

    “Paul Mc Gregor you are the reason I get bullied at school”

    That in itself should be enough for him to be sacked.

    I refuse to listen to his excuses game after game but I agree it is going to be a long long season as he hasn’t got the balls to resign. He may have played for us but he is not a real dragon otherwise he would resign. All goes back to our joke of a Board that signed him last year without a performance clause. Business 101 ?

    I thought the same Dennis but the Warriors showed true grit not like our underdone squad. I, like most of us Dragons fans looked forward to this day with some hope of us winning. Like a fool I made mention on the forum that we would win. I just ended up with an empty stomach and a dry mouth from all the yelling and swearing and nothing left in the tank just like the Dragons had nothing on the scoreboard except a big fat zero.

    It was just an anticlimax to what seemed such a bright sunny day ending in embarrassment and a lot of uncertainty with where we are heading in this competition. I just do not think we have it in us to succeed just like all the previous years after Bennett. Mary won't be sacked and will continue on his merry way into 2021. His excuses will be useless and senseless but convincing enough for the Board to keep him employed at the Dragons but his contract will certainly not be renewed.

    I won't respond to all the points you have made Old Timer but I agree with them . I just want to say that I don't think that Flanno is a good assistant. Neither he nor Sheppard would have any tangible input going by how we played today. I think Flanno is a good head coach but not assistant as like those others who have tried to assist Mary, he fails because Mary has the final say.

    Agree CC.
    Apart from the last few games in 2018 he’s been largely cumbersome. I thought he might have come on since then.

    Slow as fu** and useless too. Does nothing for me. Better off having Blacker on the bench for his size

    Lawrie offers Block zero

    Expected some flair today due to new rules but was prepared for the old same boring dragons footy under McNo-idea

    In summary I got what I expected and will probably cancel my Kayo account after cancelling my fox sports subscription. I'm not spending a cent more on boring Dragons footy as all the top footy played is free to air on 9 with proper coached teams

    For
    For some reason that I cannot understand when the team is within 20 metres of the opposition try line he gets the ball at least once for zero result!

    The way the games look to be going this year we cannot afford to carry Lawrie, Graham and a crap 17 like Aitken. Gonna be a loooong year!!

    1 win from the last 13 and that was against last year's wooden spooners.

    If that sort of form continues, he won't see the season out, let alone next year...

    On a positive note it was nice to see most of the dragons players so happy for the efforts of the warriors players after the match. May not get a premiership this year but good chance of picking up the sportsmanship award

    Agree re Lawrie. He is simply one paced and predictable. Mind you his instructions might just be ‘ run straight with the ball tucked into your chest and take no risks.’

    No he has taken up the Alfy Langer role at the Broncos where he pumps out 80 min on the field with no physical involvement
