Yes I agree with this. Offering him an extension to test his motives.
Why couldn’t we just sit him down and talk to him straight, ‘look I know you want to go.
Is it imperative it’s right now or do you want to see out what you’ve started.
I’m happy to meet in the middle and let’s walk away with our reputation and dignity in check and call 2019 the final hurrah?’
You mean like professionals…where is the fun in that…agreed btw.
but lets try reverse pshyc…1st…
Yeah, good one.
This from an extract regarding seibold to broncos and quotes from Shane Richardson below.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a firm administrator like that.
The Rabbitohs tabled Seibold a contract extension back in June, but with the rookie coach interviewing for the Broncos role, and therefore stalling on the offer, it was pulled.
“I always genuinely though that he’d stick with us, it didn’t overly concern me,” Richardson said.
“But when it became clearer and clearer that he wouldn’t be with us, we had to (move on).
“We’re a great club, we don’t want to be second best to anybody.”
Why is that firm and how is that any different from Tigers?
Tigers thought genuinely Ivan would stay, and when it became clearer and clearer that Penrith were offering him a deal, we had to move on.
What I would find alarming as a Souths fan is that Richo says he was confident Seibold would stay, and wasn’t concerned by the Brisbane role. He either totally misread Seibold’s intentions or underestimated the lure/power of the Broncos job.
Tigers at least didn’t underestimate Ivan or Penrith. We took legal action as soon as rumours of a possible move surfaced, then we maneuvered to ID a new coach whilst forcing Penrith into a payout. The only person we underestimated was Nathan, though nobody can say how confident we were of ever signing him.
I think the fact Nathan didn’t want to come to West’s reflects Ivan’s opinion on our club .otherwise I’m sure daddy could have sold west’s to his son
