If they pay him out, how can they afford Des and his army of staff?
It was reported a couple of weeks back that Maguire wants to keep the job and plans to make it a condition of any offer to coach in the NRL that he can keep the NZ job. Source: https://www.news.com.au/sport/nrl/m...b/news-story/ee4c7d781d972ed492b16676ad3435bd
Trent's a nice bloke. Met at him at nib a few years ago when he visited us on our Bring back the Reds supporters group stand.
Didnt he resign? Why would Manly need to pay him out and why is he still on the books? Generally if you resign from a position its your choice and you work notice and thats it.
Haven't you all heard of the St George Illawarra Dragons?
Of course he will.
He gave 12 months notice, so the club needs to pay him to that date regardless.
There is a chance another club will sign him the way he is pumped up. Barrett is just useless. I never understood why people ever rated him as a coach, he had a poor record with Penrith under 20’s even before he was in charge of Manly.
Praying he never coaches Origin.
The Penn brothers should go on tour, they are the funniest bunch of useless f**ks I have seen in a long time
Pfffftt. Mary ain't getting the axe.
He did bring this whole shitshow on himself so unlikey, he had zero past results or pedigree to start a war with his employer, one would think the bloke didn't think it through.

It's what we do best.
Crap facilities? cool story but you don't start a public slanging match bad mouthing your employer, its just not on.
Will David Furner ever coach again?
How can you give 12 months notice in July? So you are going to exit midway through the following season. His position was untenable from the moment he gave notice.
The biggest lol I got out of the whole thing was that Barrett asked for a recruitment manager for years, Des got one on his first day.
Oh, and fk Barrett.
Barrett gave 12 months notice and will have to work that time out doing whatever his contract say Manly can make him do, unless Manly cut him loose early in which case they have to pay out his notice period.
Its pretty clear that Manly fans hate Barrett.
So hes not to blame cause those f**kheads dont know anything.
Unless he voluntarily leaves earlier, and by the sounds of it the Penns are happy to keep paying him, just not to coach 1st grade.
Fair enough, if he gave 12 months notice, very strange thing to do mid season! then he is a dipsht and deserves what he gets. Not sure if he was calling their bluff or genuinely thought it a good idea to tell your employer your going to leave in a years time. Either way dumb as.
I would wish Des all the best, but he's at Manly so he can get f**ked.
If they keep him away from the contracts they should do alright. My only knock on him in his final couple of years at Canterbury is that he failed to adapt, his gameplan of 2012-2014 was played by that point. That and he completely ignores the lower grades to the point of having zero depth.
