    If anything, how we escaped defeat last night so narrowly only backs up the case for not extending.

    Norman will close out many move games for us in the future. He was very calm and confident when taking the shot at field goal.

    I feel as though we, more than other sides, all have to collectively play out of our skins to win games.

    Game plan, tactics and directive isn't good enough from Mary. He "may" be a good man manager, but that isn't enough currently to win a competition.

    No he should not get an extension and probably could consider returning some of his pay.

    I thought he almost lost us the game. His use of the bench with 10 minutes to go had me wondering wtf?

    NO
    I bet you about now the Warriors Supporters feel the same about Kearney.
    They extended him when there was on need to. No other club was going to chase Kearney as well as no other club is going to chase McGregor.
    If we extend McGregor it could be the worst decision in the clubs history.

    As Mick would say heaven to Betsy. Surely our board can sit back and wait until round 15 or end of season. I don’t understand why the hurry to sign McClueless. I said last year get Madge Maguire and watch us go but the board must be happy with finishing in 1 finals series in 7 years. The simple way to acknowledge if McClueless is a coach we need is the board should watch last years finals game against broncs and not that clueless was even shocked at the result. It wasn’t down to the coaching it was the players and their will to win. Unless a week 3 of finals is acheived JDB or not he shouldn’t be re-signed full stop.

    It is all about the old boys backroom deals, with the way SGI is set up:
    • WIN Corp appoints it's Board members
    • St George Leagues Club appoints its Board members
    there is no way the members of SGI will ever have a say or influence club policy or decisions. There is no way Board members or Club officials will ever be held accountable.

    I just can't see how any members or fans would be happy with this arrangement.

    I say the NRL should be petitioned to develop some new criteria for NRL licences. The fans must have significant representation and a say in all decisions.

    possm it is to do with the structure they have set up.....An outside coach needs to be willing to come in and work with the existing people...Doust alluded to this some time back...If my memory serves me correctly he talked about an NFL type structure where the coach just slots in to coach with the existing people in the organization. I wonder if Bennett had kept his word and come back whether he would have bought Hickmans with him ?

    Most high profile coaches like to bring in their own team...this is why McGregor...fits the bill....personally I would go for Demetriou or O'Brien or even Holbrook over McGregor everyday day of the week..
