Knowles has enjoyed the media. Let us be real.Still doesn't all quite add up.
Why did it have to go public?
Why was he given a "show cause notice" - effectively meaning his job was on the line?
Why not just have the chat with AOB and Klem after the game or the Monday saying he was being a prick and wasn't doing what's best for the team, that's that and then nothing escalates.
Knowles seems proud of what he's done and believe it was for the best, but he hasn't acknowledged how dumb it's made our club look and the frustrations the fans have felt from this, this week.
“Sometimes leadership is tough. Sometimes you have to put the value of the team before anything, no matter who the person is. If our club, our roster, our management want success, they should be thanking me for trying to uphold the set of standards this team needs.”
But once again, why did it need to go public?Trainer Hayden Knowles has cleared the air over the incident which led to David Klemmer being stood down by the Newcastle Knights last week.www.smh.com.au
