    Fair enough. I just don't, will not and will never accept mediocrity. And that's all he's brought to a once-proud club.

    Marys sacking was always going to be an inevitable outcome..He did well to last 13 rounds into the season. After more than six years, he had his turn.

    Results is one thing. Another is development. And throughout his time as coach, I don't think he developed any young player into representative honours. Maybe JdB, but not much else.

    It'd be such a St George thing to do now to re-sign Mary for another 3 years.

    You all laughed at us for years. But the jokes now on you.

    Mary’s free to sign on with another club and it could be with any one of your clubs.

    The answer was obviously to sack Mary every week.

    here here.

    And awesome to see the team around him after the game.

    Never seen a coach who’s been let go have any sign off even close to that. Most go through the trapdoor and disappear. This was something else.

    They players lifted because they knew the turd was going.

    They finally had purpose.
    They finally had direction.
    They were finally happy.

    Seeya stupid.
    Good luck finding a new gig.

    Even a club of downies playing in a comp consisting of their team only would reject him.
    Which goes to show what our board consists of.

    I like the sound of downie ball. Could play a hybrid of 1 half of downie ball and the other half of topball
