    Champ, the wife & I might be in quarantine or self isolation or whatever it’s called today - with the scotch running desperately low - but re our Accidental Coach (the Waterboy), this thread is just warming up.

    He’s on the ropes & it’s Round 15 ( the usual time he implodes & runs out of puff &ticker)
    & we have the Board & Andrew Gordon ( his benefactor and everloving mate) in our sights & ready for the knockout

    (Tyson’s in our corner Kenty).

    So tell me Andrew, why aren’t you stepping down after your latest contribution:
    “Since taking ownership late in 2018, and installing Gordon's son Andrew as previous CEO Peter Doust's successor, the joint venture has undergone the worst season on and off the field in its history.”

    ...and taking your derelict mate with you?

    Nice excerpt from the above:

    “I guarantee no club was looking at Paul McGregor as a possible head coach.”

    And the despicable bottom line is that Andrew Gordon didn’t want his mate out of a job.

    The whole coaching & Club fiasco boils down to this one sorry fact.

    Sack him then resign Andrew

    On my screen there is an ad on the top of this page for a TV show called Black Monday, about a group of guys who take on the old boys club establishment of an organisation. Coincidence?

    [QUOTE="VodkaSaint, post: 14063947, member:



    Desperate times for a lobbyist Waterboy trying to garner support I’d imagine

    & a Board used to clandestine operations, gladhanding, backslapping & communal snouting.

    Fearful times for them - 1.5m too far for whispers and overheard rumouring


    (Your pic was a brilliant post VodkaSaint)
    But our badge at least 3 years away from that trophy
    - as Tyson rightly figured.
    - as the players secretly know
    - as we all know
    - and the Media
    - and, shockingly, humiliatingly, the flood of sympathetic fans from across the NRL know

    And as our Capt. no one knew the barefaced, unspun, inside facts better.

    11th,8th,11th,11th,7th,15th,13th

    18% win ratio after Rd 6 last year.

    Are your listening & seeing,

    Bruce in Bermuda or is it Monaco?

    Or our beleaguered Andrew,

    shackled to a floundering Waterboy

    His failed mate saved by him multiple times over 7 years of Board meetings no doubt

    - then saved more recently by a Titan. a toad and a pangolin it seems

    Think bigger fellas
    Resurrect our Club
    That trophy’s worth millions to you

    Yet you pass
    Failed Mary?


    Who’d handle JetSki hire in Bermuda quite nicely

    The only problem is that when the dust settles financially after this scorched Earth event, the clubs will be looking at cut price coaches.
    Dread to think that that may result in extension number 3.

    Oh Goody! Just the things to brighten my sporting lifeless days. $200 can buy me many McDipstick items because the prices of them are so low just like McDipstick is at coaching.

    I was thinking the same darn thing ol' buddy. Reduced wages for the bald one means that the Board will be getting a cheap coach to give us poorer results.

    Had a little chuckle at this. Skip to 1:01:46 and listen to what nightingale says to Aitken.

    I thought that imitation was supposed to be the most sincere form of flattery.

    At least some league sites are finally getting it. I would hope some other league journalists would for once, cover the demise in our coaching instead of being a best pal of McIdiot.
    The truth is out there, it’s not hard to find
