    They should be aimed at the CEO, in my opinion.

    I remember when I was a kid- before I knew all the different regions and districts of Sydney- I thought St George was the blanket name for a large conglomerate that had their fingers in several interests, including a bank and a football club...

    All these years later, I'm beginning to think I was right about the football club part of it all along...

    We’ve obviously got it wrong.

    750 pages of condemnation has not worked because the unflushible turd is still there.


    I think the club should extend jowls’ contract by another 2 years at least.


    Maybe 750 pages of that will work.

    Have you been following F1 as long as you've been following St George?

    Well St George as I knew it is finally dead.

    I wasn’t even surprised at the decision.

    Basically this was Andrew Gordon saying THIS IS MY TOY AND NO-ONE GETS TO TELL ME HOW I PLAY WITH IT!

    Wouldnt it be nice to have done absolutely nothing in life and have our football team as your personal plaything.

    The board figures they’ve got enough supporters that will support them “no matter what” that they don’t need the rest of us. Maybe they’re right. There is plenty of the bloody idiots on social media.

    Either way, that’s me done. I’ll still watch the games on tv as I just can’t see that habit being broken. But no merch and no memberships.

    The bottom line is that until there is a coup at board level, we’re screwed.

    Oh and by the way, today pretty much locks in dean young as our next coach because they clearly don’t want anyone outside coming in and disrupting anything.

    Don’t renew - I made the decision not to renew this year after 12 years as Red V member- the Club right now does not need fans so why bother supporting them financially. Completely over this Club right now -

    Brian Smith’s prophecy about the club having the smell of Newtown about it was prescient.

    I have a feeling that something else fishy is at play here. Gould , the board and listening to James graham with a throw away “that’s private” comment just doesn’t add up.

    I saw the news this morning, and felt some excitement for the first time in a very long time, Finally the board has listened to the most important stakeholder, the fans , but not to be, our board hasn’t got a clue, or doesn’t give a stuff? Our club is an absolute rabble. I know this will sound stupid to some people, but I can’t see us winning any more than 4 games this year. And I can certainly see us getting the wooden spoon.

    At this stage I have six Kogarah 'membership' tickets and have zero chance of getting what I paid for. They treat us like customers when taking the money but expect us to be supporters when it comes to refunds.

    I was happy to wait-and-see, but after I read that the coach and (presumably) other admin were still taking top money, I thought stuff this.

    Last I heard was there will be a resolution in two weeks. That was one week ago.

    Fans are not part of Gordon's definition of "our people".
    That is reserved for McGregor and the incompetent board.

    Can you do anything about a refund through your credit card provider if you paid via CC?

    Ordinarily I’ve been of the mantra to let bands/sports etc I’ve bought tickets for that have since been covided keep the cash to help out..

    But after today’s announcement & the fact McGregor has been taking full pay... f**k those guys..

    Never. Those walking ball sacks to include The Million Dollar Ballsack McGregor will never get a cent of my money.

    This shit has just started.

    Step 1: Today reach out to any friend or family Saints supporter, the regular fans that don't post here but support the club in some way. Get them to commit to cancelling memberships, not to buy Dragons merchandise and go drink beer and play pokies at other clubs

    Pretty much - I watched my first full Adelaide F1 GP that same year. The Senna driven Marlboro Red and White McLaren-Honda started that obsession. Wonder where it came from hey?

    That's pretty drastic action and a bloody hassle, but I suppose it's an option. Here's hoping it doesn't come to that.

    Ok let me tell you what’s happened.
    There was never a review

    A few players had a chat to Gus about things and Mcfwit was given an idea by Gus to get someone who had experience in coaching and it just happened that Flanno was available. But I can promise you that there was no review. It is just a spin in things where Gus spoke to graham mcinnes Norman was not spoken to but was spoken about. You think I am lying I dare anyone at the club to deny this. There is no document or any notes. Nothing zip. It’s a lie if CCP proportions.

    Let me ask any player to come in here and say they were spoken to by Gus and see what they say. Has any player other than Graham mentioned the review. You think Frizz was asked anything I can tell you now he knows nothing about it

    When I put this to Gus he blocked me straight away. Tell me I am lying dragons BOD.

    You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of St George’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” An unnamed Board member said - don't put on the minutes thanks.

    I would sincerely love to know what was said on the minutes of the meeting and then those comments made under the protection of - "Gentlemen not for the minutes please" but .................

    Then the Press Release is made on a very inaccurate description on what was said in the meeting.

    Love to put the Board members under oath .....

    Fair call just an opinion.. still think from what I hear is he has his
    fair call it’s only an opinion. When you consider who we have chased and who we have lost I reckon he’s been pretty average.

    The decision to not sack Paul McGregor was effectively made prior to St George Illawarra’s 10.30am emergency board meeting on Tuesday, by someone who didn’t participate in it.

    Dragons part-owner Bruce Gordon, whose estimated net worth as the head of WIN Corporation is $728 million, is not a director of the club. However, his view was conveyed to the board early in the 45-minute Zoom meeting: the coach is not to be boned.
