Has any body here seen my old friend RYAN ???? Song sound familiar ??
When he started in this Gig , i thought finally we have someone who can take us somewhere .
Plenty of updates on player movement , club news etc etc but sadly he seems to have slipped into the ether that consumes most at the Dragons
We have heard ZIP out of him for ages..Has he been rained in by by the powers that be ?
Has he realised he has no clout there ?
i am aware that he regularly peruses this site reading with interest the constructive views of many on here ...
Members and supporters of this once great Club are treated with contempt by the Board who think they know best
Is anyone accountable for the mess we are presently in ?
Who takes responsibility for the signing of players that has now brought this once mighty Club to its knees .. Webb Haran Millward Yound Doust etc etc All still there ....as the Club wallows
We now have an out of touch Coach , who , similar to the last disaster , has a preferred few, that get selected even though their form is way below that expected
Many on here sing the praises of some of our promising juniors such as Sullivan Sloan etc etc but they are continually held back with little or no reason given , but at the same time other Clubs are blooding juniors on a regular basis , some much younger than ours Sualli etc
Many on here are continually frustrated by selection with little or no reason given why or why not..This week Frank Molo ...nothing..Lomax in,,,nothing ..Maccullough ..seriously
Questions to Mr Webb
Is our Coach purely selecting a slow , some out of form , pedestrian side that may jag the odd win against the few sides below us that may give him a better finishing position than last year , instead of selecting younger players pressing hard for NRL Selection that may come with some risk but will be all the better with the experience and give the fans something to cheer and get excited about??
Why do we hear so little from You and The Club in papers and social media akin to most other Clubs ?
Why are always looking at bargain basement buys / nomads /journeyman unwanted at other clubs but land here ? Why dont we go after the marquee signing that will attract others to the Club ie Munster Papenhauzen etc etc ?
When will we hear an opinion from You or the Club re the state of play re Anthony Griffin ?
Happy ? Not Happy ? Doing his best ? etc
His assistant coaches the same ? Both our defence and attack is SHOT so would love to hear your opinion
In closing

This Club used to be the most feared and revered In Rugby League known the world over ..Today we are a poorly run , poorly administered , poorly coached established that is quickly heading into oblivion that swallowed up Newtown , the Bears , old Magpies and Balmain ...

Gus had the five year plan.......
what do we have ...😢😄
Thats why I started the thread "Where do you see us in 5 years time" are we seeing improvement from the last 6 to 7 years and as you have stated here you along with me have had enough of we might make the 8 and if they do the board coaching staff , there will be high 5s all around .......

Well structured and said Dungay. I've already said my bits many times. But I've not said too much about the CEO.

Ryan Webb hey!? Where in hell are you? Sulking in the corner with your big thumb stuck up your small mouth. What are you good at to get this much important job at the Dragons. When are you going to let us know where this club is actually heading - just some indication whether or not it is up or down, anything will do provided it is bloody something?

What is happening to the communications coming out of the Dragons den, nothing much?

Poor old Frank Facer would be grimacing in his grave knowing how little we have achieved.

The media are talking about other clubs not doing too well and soon they will be on us - I hope - and then I hope you will come out and tell all what the aims are going forward or aims are going backwards. Just tell us something or have you become too dumb and become a puppet on a string?

I thought he would be a very welcome addition to the club.
What goes on behind the scenes we'll never know & the club has always been this way with little to no leaks coming out of there, Unlike others.
Maybe he's been too busy looking around for another job & is sick of butting heads with our lazy outdated board LOL.

I will say one thing & that is he does normally reply to emails which aren't abusive.

Another thing too, Our media department must be the worse & laziest in the nrl.
Embarrassing really.

Yeah , he's had it at several Clubs but has jumped ship on each occasion. Apparently he was the first one off the Titanic when it was going down !
Have lost a lot of faith in Gus in recent times But a lot of the ground work re Juniors , and where they stand today at the Panthers were put in place by him
The other places , would agree

Not disagreeing with you but Penrith have had a large junior base long before Gus come along

Gus had the five year plan.......
what do we have ...😢😄
Cracks me up people talking about Gus and the 5 year plan. The 5 year plan was to infact to turn the clubs Junior system around and be successful once again.
Was a media storm about the 5 year plan to begin with.… However when you look back, the Juniors started producing and winning titles in that window.
But look at us now hey, I know who I would rather follow..

Not to mention the Centre of Excellence, the same of which every club is following. Although Gus is very out spoken and people don’t always agree with his view, the man is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to Footy.
