I hope all the sponsored leave us and we are left in ruins , that’s the only way anything at the club will change
Gould knows Hasler was at the Dogs and they booted him out so of course he would want Hasler to coach the Dragons. Aren't the Dogs just getting out of the $hite he put them in when he left? Dogs fans were wrapt when Hasler got punted like we were with Hook. That is what scares me. However the same cannot be said for Manly. The fans still love Des so I am torn to be honest. Will Saints have the Dogs experience or the Manly Experience?Slippery...he came out some weeks ago and said Dragons need Hasler at this point in time...
Or at very least add another 4 independent members (can't be aligned) plus an independent Chair. Find some way to have another voice in the room at least.I think one of the owners has to take a majority position OR we need to appoint a (preferably independent) Chair over an otherwise equal split of directors to break ties. I’d give them a 3 to 5 year term with the responsibility written in (shouldn’t have to though) to provide the final vote to proceed in the best interest of the club.
Here’s the thing. Ryan Webb comes out with a statement saying Ryles decided not to take the deal etc etc. Wouldn’t it have been better for the integrity of the club for him to say that ‘ they couldn’t reach an agreement and he was one of a number of candidates we are canvassing? He could have told Ryles to keep the Melbourne deal to himself until next week.
Exactly this. We now need a high profile coach, no ifs or butsOne of our biggest problems has been lack of recruitment of quality players. The only way this will be addressed is by firstly having a high profile coach to attract players and secondly, a professional, well connected recruitment manager....Rookie coaches do not and will not address this issue...Say we get Dean Young, which now seems likely, are quality players going to flock to the Dragons to play under him...not on your life and we'll be stuck with the same problems....
Hornby I would accept as he would take no crap from playersHe is exactly what this Club needs.
However, I feel that ship has sailed. I hope Im wrong, as the immediate alternatives appear to be Young and / or Hornby.
no he has flown under the radar with everyone I must say we should all thank Gus for getting involved in Dragons businessWasn’t it posted that he knocked us back?
No, I think Jason had always been uncertain and that is why he checked things out with other coaches and former players and that sort of helped him to get back to the Storm to see what they would offer him and they quickly jumped at the chance to get him back and have already confirmed him and his family moving from Wollongong and going back to Melbourne to live. They didn't muck around. Not like us.I wonder if it was Jason getting cold feet or if our board is that f**king stupid?
