    Hi Wayne,

    I was prepared to 'kidnap' him at the end of 2016 (not really) to prevent him from coaching us. Well most of that 2016 game plan did go out the window... And what were you saying when we were 6-1, is it not possible to improve on that going forward. A superchoach or no premiership, I get it. But wake me up when we have one and learn to live without one.

    If we had Hassler it would be worse than 2016. Play like robots analysing stats. Learn to live without a 'supercoach' because 'screaming at the sky' like a dem election loss won't change reality.

    We can't afford a real coach!
    The club is struggling financially and McGregor is the cheap option.

    I see the similarities between Trump and McGregor too

    Both are incompetent self-aggrandising delusional blowhards who conned their way into a job they are in no way qualified for and continue to completely fk up at every possible opportunity, making the employer they work for worse and worse every single day.

    If McGregor was one half the success of Trump we would be big winners.

    Don't think anyone's familiar with the Nigel Farage 'Wakey Wakey' tweet, or the Donald Trump one. But I'll post Mary's version anyway. #GetAGrip

    Correct
    Divide and Rule!
    I was in the USA two years ago with the wife and really enjoyed it.
    Alas, as long as this clown is in charge I refuse to return.
    Hate the guy.

    When Detroit beats you it's time to go (Defense) - they did miss Rodgers in the season though.

    Look out for the Saints - we will beat Carolina next week, then charge through the Falcons or Rams - superbowl here we come - hopefully like 2010 when Brees held his son in the air and accepted the Superbowl and Hornby held his son up in the air and accepted the NRL trophy.

    Won a heap of money that year on both teams - 13 plus in the NRL and 50 plus points total on the mighty New Orleans Saints.

    Cheers from Bourbon street

    Have Vice Versa and Banjo 2014 been able to derail a sack McGregor thread with unusual comments about American politics and American football!?
    Unbelievable! Don't you guys know that all threads must be about sacking the coach especially the one titled sack the coach!
    Now enough talk of Gridiron and Trump! Sack the coach!!!

    Lol I hear you... Don't take it too serious. I posted here earlier today that I somewhat defend aspects of Mary to live'n up this forum, as everybody attacks him like they do Trump so one guy insulted me with a cheap shot. I wish we had a better coach and I knew I would trigger people so it's just entertaining me.

    I welcome a different point of view which is what these forums should be all about.
    Having said that, you show a serious disconnect with reality.
    One of the most pertinent things about McGregor is how he was even appointed in the first place.
    A couple of bush premierships and 2 unremarkable years coaching reserve grade are not adequate qualifications that would support his appointment as the St. George Illawarra first grade coach.
    By any reasonable, logical and meritorious measure this was an inexplicable appointment which the club could not explain and the fans could never understand.
    Basically, McGregor was totally unqualified and ill equipped to take on such a prestigious and important role.
    Since his appointment, his short comings have slapped us in the face on a regular basis.
    I want to take you to task on your assertion that "We lost 6 games by 6 points or less...etc."
    In 2017 we also won 4 games by 6 points or less.
    "If only..." is not a way to analyze a season.
    Taking your argument further - in 2016 we won 7 games by 6 points or less.
    S
    o if we had lost those 7 games we would have ended up with the wooden spoon?
    And if we had got the wooden spoon in 2016, would the club sacked McGregor and would we have a different coach now?
    That is just not reality.
    It is also unrealistic to rationalize the "improvements" even though you yourself outlined a number of areas which continue to have big question marks over them.
    "don't blame you for throwing more tantrums in 2018"
    So you think that the reaction to McGregor's tenure is all about throwing tantrums?
    I think it shows that you are searching for positives and clutching at straws.
    People on here are upset and annoyed for very good reason.
    The original appointment and especially the renewal of McGregor as FG coach is inexplicable.
    With regards to 2018.
    So we gained Hunt and Graham BUT we lost Dugan, Packer and Thompson.
    Widdop is still the captain.
    Our draws for 2016 and 2017 were as soft as they come and we still couldn't make the finals.
    Slightly different story in 2018 however.
    Do you also think the other clubs have been standing around with their arms folded while we have improved our roster and our coaching structures?
    You can expect a much harder path to the finals in 2018.
    2017 shows a picture of better statistics provided largely by the forwards but with a terrible final outcome.
    I think people are just sick of all the McGregor self promotion, excuses and deflections.
    They are upset with the club who keeps treating it's fans like dodos.
    So the coaching function is still our Achilles heel - no doubt about it.
    It doesn't matter who plays half back and who provides game management,
    By all means, let's all be optimistic - but not with a lot of confidence.
