    No. Payten only would of got offered 1 year. Gree
    Todd is masking a bit of the truth there. Using the chemo card has merits though. Payten is being professional as he can be on this matter but indirectly saying FU to our new owner by coming out publicly denying the job. It was only for 12 months. The truth is we have all our eggs in 1 basket for this experienced coach that has 1 year left on his contract.

    Whoever was going to be appointed head coach for 2021 is not going to be the coach in 2022. I don't blame Todd for jumping ships.

    When asked about coming back for his final year as assistant coach and turning down the head coach job. That to me shows he wants to get fired so he can move to NQ faster.

    This coach we have up our sleeves better be a good one.

    OK, that's a different slant on it. If this person (who do we think it is?) is coming in 2022, then to be honest with the disruption likely in 2021 with being based probably in Australia etc, that's not a bad thing. And I don't blame Payten if he doesn't want a part of that either. Maybe the stuff he isn't telling us is he thinks Mark Robinson is a wanker.

    Yeah... no way Payten would have only been offered one year.

    And with Gould coming on board (potentially), that will eliminate Griffin from the running.

    Just saw the Gould stories...

    I know not everyone is a fan, but the guy is a league savant... I remember reading Maria Fenech's book (which I recommend), Gould was in the Souths team mid-late 80s, Fenech said he was coaching the team then, not George Piggins, and he was amazing... then Canterbury, Penrith, SOO, and the Chooks as a coach - if he's continued coaching, I have no little doubt that his record would dwarf the likes of Bennett etc... but I don't think he's a 10+ year at one club guy - to be fair few are...

    And again, while controversial his off field roles at the Roosters and Penrith have been (IMO) successful with very different scenarios

    I know he isn't universally liked, I know people perceive agendas, but if he can't help turn the joint around I am not sure anyone can

    TBH at this stage the club needs someone of his stature just to survive.
    Coach nominees dropping like flies.
    No recognised players wanting to come.
    Uncertainty over Covid19.
    A CEO with NFI who wants to meddle.
    An out-of-control owner who shoots from the lip.

    Little wonder Green left.
    To be replaced by..............................

    Is there a point you're making?

    Smith, to my understanding, was never the "boss", Smith also isn't Gould...

    But if you have a better idea than Gould in charge (which is what the role would have to be - f**k off George etc, and let Gould run the joint), I'd be interested to know what it would be...

    Actually I was being completely literal. What did he achieve? Is there anywhere we can find out out what he actually did here? Was he hamstrung in any way by the owners or the coach or the CEO? I would like to know. Maybe lessons can be learned if Gould did come over. Otherwise he will just piss off in 5 minutes if he thinks there is no buy in.

    Gotcha, yeah little but the whole structure is wrong, seems like George and Kearney were in charge which is clearly insane

    Gould is better no question, but he, or Smith even, needs control

    Nathan Brown. I thinking he’s been asked to coach for 2021 only and move sideways if they get their big fish

    I don’t think Brown is a terrible option, has a history of leaving clubs a lot stronger than when he got them

    Brown has been confirmed.

    Just bizarre. We need a rebuilding coach. That, he is not

    He only coaches successfully with established teams with good rosters. We don’t have that.

    We need a coach that can rebuild and will draw in talent.

    He won’t do that.

    Still, better than those crazy walker bros
