Skyb - Phil Gould is the director of football for the Panthers, he pulls the strings.

Before a ball was even kicked this season there was talk that Griffin was in trouble, had lost the young captain through the off season etc and big rumour of a half time blow up with Gus.

He sounds like a twat. Re the tunnel blow up, thereís a time and a place for having a chat, surely at half time isnít that time.

Agree and I don't know why Cleary would sell his soul to go back there.

Terrific interview with Griffin on NRL360 last night. Said the only reason he got sacked is because he and Gus don't get on.

All the other stuff being spun by Gould is just complete bull$hit.

Thatís all well and good for Griffin to say that but I suspect the truth lays somewhere else

The team is running 4th four weeks out from finals and a good chance to go deep into the finals. No coach in the history of the game or any other game I can think of has been sacked in that position.

I get the plan of keeping Nathan there by getting his dad as the coach but clearly Griffin wasn't allowing Gus to tell him how to coach, Gus couldn't handle that, they don't get on, so Gus punted him. There is no other explanation.

I've always been a big fan of Gould from the time he played with Souths.

It was apparent then that he was to turn his hand to coaching once he retired as he was really the deputy coach to Piggins.

Later on his opinion pieces in the Herald and his TV commentary were reasoned and well-argued.

However for the past 10-15 years or so he has lost me.

This change of mine began due to his constant harping, regardless of the state of the match, when teams elected to have a kick for goal rather than a tap and run.

I now regard him as a big-headed boofhead who thinks he's the only one who knows anything about League.

Couldn't agree more. I and I'm sure anyone with Foxtel will only watch Foxtel if Ch9 is doing the same game and Gould is commentating. Having to listen to him for SOO games is painful.

The ratings may show otherwise. The only time I favour fox is when Hadley is commentating on 9

As to Griffin, the team being in the finals is covering the cracks They have played crap for the past 2 months after a very good start to the season. Mind you! It was a very soft draw for them as well

Having 50 put on them 3 games ago and getting out of jail in the dying minutes against the raiders & manly isnít a team who would win the comp, despite their immense talent. They needed a change
They will  improve out of sight now Griffin is gone

It's one of my favourite sayings Wily "the truth normally lies somewhere in the middle"

They'd both be right & both be wrong in instances.

Pure and simple, this is all about Cleary ..... Nathan that is  :whistle:

I honestly think he is seriously depressed to the point I am concerned about him. You carefully listen to his voice on the commentary. It is the voice of someone who is struggling to see the positive side of anything. He seeks out negativity.

....Oh. And before I forget. The Roosters beat Souths last night to pinch the top place in the comp off them - nothing depressing in that   :biggrin:

It is becoming painfully obvious that St George ejaculated some time during June or July.

The suspicion is they may have pushed the boundaries as they attempted to keep the bulk of the side that took the club to their maiden premiership.   :angel:

The 3rd party deal structure needs to be overhauled

  :lol:

You've just come to that conclusion Wily  :chin:

The whole thing is stuffed as it creates a bigger gap in the 'haves and have nots' which is the exact thing the salary cap is trying to stop  :shutup:

Clubs like Brisbane, The Roosters, Melb etc are awash with corporate money whilst say the Wests Tigers would be lucky to find a free train ticket from Leumeah station  :shy:

Can someone tell me who decides on penalties for off field lewd behaviour by players?

If you are a Canterbury player on Mad Monday you get the book thrown at you.

If you are Mitchell Pierce and act up on video you get sent to the Unidted States and miss out on 9 weeks.

But if you are Sam Burgess you can do what you want  :what:

Well at least if we aren't going to be allowed to have our best player Mitchell playing then Souths lose their best player because he did exactly the same thing...oh hang on a minute  :shutup:

Echos of Luke Rickettson GF suspension on trumped up Telegraph charge.

Surely the immunity the roosters get on Uncle Nick rorting the cap is enough of an advantage PP7?

Rorting. What rorting? We had to let some pretty good players go to get the best signings plus there is the salary cut players are willing to take to be at such a wonderful club.

And why does Sam Burgess get a walk over something that would result in most players being immediately suspended?

Latest news I've seen says that the young lady may have sent  :censored: pix to the Souths boys . . .

Who were so upset by her actions, that they responded in kind . .




As any happily married expectant father would do  :whistle:
