    Ah, people in glass houses...

    Should we pull up some of your quotes from earlier in this thread.

    They are absolute gold to look back on now.

    Sack Brown quotes? The man is a Knights legend in my eyes. Nothing will change that. He's come and done a job and decided the times right. Good luck to him.

    Just watched the 360 with Brown. I can't believe how well our club and everyone involved has handled the situation. It's the best PR I've seen the club get in a long long time.

    The whole episode could have gone down the crap hole but we have turned a long losing streak with the coach getting fired into a PR dream.

    Brown is now Mr. Fix it. The losing has been pin pointed down to a 4-5 games we lost by 3.8 points. Not bad just unlucky.

    Brown looks great in front of the camera. Humble but did great work for the club.

    Management don't look incompetent nor vicious. Everyone is on good terms. The Knights are just looking to take the next step up. Looks like we are targeting the best option out there in O'Brian.

    I was quite worried when the news broke Brown was fired. Most of us on the forums here lived through the Bennett, Tinker, Brian Smith Era and all those difficult years. I was truly expecting a sh*t storm. However, this feels like a great spring broad that'll be a perfect launch for our 2020 season.

    Truely impressed by all involved. I have been piling on the hate on Brown but he is a class act.

    I think we will finish the season strong and can't wait for 2020 already.

    Well said mate.
    My respect for Browny grew tenfold when he admitted he’s not the coach to win premierships but if you’re looking for a coach to collect wooden spoons and build a fair roster he’s the guy.

    humble and honest as the day is long is how he comes across. A genuine nice bloke.

    Gardners comments about Brown's character would be some of the highest praise I've ever heard about an outgoing coach or player for that matter. He'll have no trouble getting another gig.

    He won’t get another head coaching gig in the NRL.
    No other club can afford to sit though wooden spoons to build a roster.
    Browny has had the easiest coaching gig in the NRL.

    The idea of going out with friends is so foreign to him. Maybe you could stalk Gagai?

    Maybe Flush can organise another Rise for Alex BBQ with his Bronco friends since he’s so popular.

    Forever alone.

    The Broncos would be a perfect rebuild for Browny

    Dean Pay is showing what a phoney Browny is.
    The Bulldogs now have the same amount competition points as us.
    It took Browny 4 rubbish years to get to this point LOL.
    Meanwhile Pay with some of our ex “rubbish” players in Cogger, Meany, Holland are competing and improving every week.
    All Browny did during his time here was sit back and collect wooden spoons and use the same excuse “it’s just where we are at the moment Baz”

    Pay is making it look easy atm.

    A cap in ruin, off casts and unwanted players from other clubs but has his team playing tough footy and is racking up the wins.

    He has done an unbelievable job.

    And we stole his best player.
    But the bloke is an amateur, to do a proper rebuild you need to serve up the worst season in 25 years.

    Indeed, they look like a SOO line-up compared to our 2016 team.
