There needs to be an investigation, somebody needs to be accountable for this!
Panthers are looking at another four years of this rubbish - they’ve overtaken the Bulldogs as the League’s biggest basket case.
They have everything in place to achieve success, an excellent junior base and pathways, excellent facilities and a roster full of talent, but they are unraveling and self destructing at coaching and board level through their own dysfunctional actions, inactions and decision making. None of the key leaders (Chairman Dave O’Neill, Gus and Ivan) seemed to know what each other was doing. There was obviously a power struggle going on and this dysfunction has filtered right through the entire organisation to point where things seem so broken they’re going to have make some considerable adjustment to turn it around. This sort of scenario can lead to player discontent as relationships become fractured, leading to players wanting out and the club identifying a need to bring in some fresh talent to revitalise the culture and level of professionalism.
The tree is shaking, and it’ll be interesting to see who falls out.
