The most concerning thing about that article is Tim Simona being ‘guttered’.

At least his tears will be well harvested.
I think the club has treated him poorly and this is his way of dealing with it.
Really? Even though he wanted 4 years, they offered him 3 at much better money than he was currently on. Mayer advised on the Game Plan last night that the money he was offered was more than that agreed originally by Humphreys.
He is in average form and was offered plenty. I think there are people trying to paint the club in a poor light. I believe there would be people in the club that would be happy he is leaving as it frees up a large chunk of cash to build with.
Some of me wants to think the club has done poorly by him, but if that was the case then wouldn’t they be better servved no to grant him his release? I don’t want him to be bitter toward the club, and I personally think he should find a Super League club as I don’t think he will enjoy rugby and there would be plenty of guys waiting to get him on the bottom of a maul.
I think there’s truth in both sides of the argument. I don’t think the club can be blamed for losing him, and I don’t think he can be blamed for wanting out. I think it was just an unfortunate group of circumstances that led to neither party being very comfortable with the situation.

You are probably closer to the mark than most with that line of thinking, takes two to tango.
Been to all the grounds excepting new GC and Mel ones. For mine, none match the atmosphere a packed Leichhardt with a competitive game on show can provide.
Whilst it won’t be anywhere near full tonight, even with 10 to 12k odd it should be better than most. Oh how I love an arena that is not full of concrete and plastic!
Park footy playing for campbelltown warriors in the centres and untried at NRL level??? If he was such a good centre I would of thought he would of got a crack in the 20’s.
guess John Lang did the same thing with Inglis. Ah, fullback? but he’s a centre!! People learn to play different positions and people like Koro and Big T have a hard enough time learning wing and are far more powerful on the wing so Nofo and Simona will have to go in the centres. Simona’s played centre in NSW Cup this year all the time anyway.
He played centre in NYC ya dope. He was playing inside Koroibete in many rounds last year.
No need to get nasty like some of the others.
The jury is out for mine. The team has massively underperformed this season. Injuries were not used as a reason for poor performance last season so lets not use that as a reason now Potter is coach.
If Potter is coach next season, I expect nothing less than Top 8. Anything less than that and he should go.
Knuckles I think you are way off the mark!! I think next year will be another building year with the younger guys. I think Potter should be given an extension until the end of 2015 so he can show everyone what plans and structures he is going to put in place and let him have a real good go in the market place to make the squad a formidable outfit moving forward.
Verdict? The jury cannot even convene until he gets someone other than himself on the list of staff he would like. Impossible to judge a coach working with all the deadwood, both staff and roster wise, inherited from another.
Haven’t looked at it and don’t think I need to.
I would assume that it is basically what has been said and displayed by him many times over the many years, things that should have been obvious to all. However, some people were blinded by the ego (which I think all at a similar level have, and need) and looked past the hard working, loyal person with a big heart, that he wasn’t afraid to wear on his sleeve
Very disappointed with ‘genius’ LD, again he played Woods for only 10-15 minutes, probably he should do “Jamie Lyon” the next time.
Mate he got what his first 15 deserved. Im not an LD fan but I couldnt have brought Woods back on. His hit ups and failure to grass Thurston were very poor.

I thought Farah’s effort or lack of it on Thurston was worse. I expect front rowers sliding to be stepped by the best in the business occasionally.
I feel for Aaron.
Game 1 was unavoidable as Qld blew NSW off the park.
But he seemed off the pace in game 2. He was spent after 10 minutes.
I hope his papers aren’t marked for the future.

I thought he was on par with his peers when he was taken off in both games, no better, no worse. He plays at the same pace in all his games, but he can maintain it for long periods.
I never expected him to stand out, he is not that type of player. However, he was wasted in the role they used him and should have had some spark on the bench instead of him if they were going down this path.
I hope Woods was injured, if not, why choose a big motored front rower and play him about 40 of the 160 minutes.
We had enough chances to win a couple of games. They were hungrier than us particularly close to the line, with Farah’s pee poor effort in the first half a good example.
Final whine, why on earth we haven’t had a decent game breaker on the bench, even more so with Aaron’s utilisation and following Hayne’s injury is beyond me.
