    No doubt it wants you to think that. Why is the question.

    Didnt we lose Gentle and Palmer?
    Palmer was replaced with the AFL guy and Kidwell came in mid season for Gentle to support Grima who was promoted to assistant if I recall correctly.

    So we lose our defensive coach and let the head coach takeover and don't bother replacing it till round 6 when the damage had been done.

    We also had a new head of performance.

    And yes you are correct, apologies for that about Bernie doing it in 2017 also but it obviously caught up with him and the review led to it needing to be filled, although this article suggests we wanted to recruit one for 2017;

    It is still a stupid way to run a club.

    The universe thought I'd make a good thread starter. That wasn't wise.

    There was a heap of reasons why we lacked cohesion and I’m not blaming anything on afl merkin, but it’s amazing how we’ve steered clear of the ‘afl built’ Forward pack. We look fitter even when we’ve had to defend.

    No, it knew exactly how awful you'd be. And was counting on it.

    That;s deeper than a black hole even though i'm pretty sure they are only theoretical.

    We didn't look very fit against the Roosters when they had all the ball. We also slowed down against the Sharks in the second half but luckily they lacked the spark (Moylan and Johnson) to capitalise.

    We done well to be in the contest against the roosters, and we were our own worst enemies. Had we played them last year they would of put 50 on us

    It also commits, moves and doesn't sit on the fence like a stale bottle of piss.

    I was the only one on here that stood by Brad Arthur all last season.
    You could tell it was not his fault.

    Bullshit. Pou, Gronk and Bazal did as well. They love mediocrity.

    Gary wouldn’t give a firm choice
