When was that? 16 years ago? And we are still no more attractive as a club.
How disheartening.

It is the Broncos and money talks.
Broncos have never had recruitment issues so mute point.
You would expect with this announcement Demeitrou will be groomed the coming year.
What I like about it was though is that the Broncos have drawn a line in the sand and made a decision on next year with you would think both parties in agreement.
I see that situation far less messy than ours.

I guess in trying to see it from Ivan’s view he may possibly be in two minds as to what he wants his future to look like.
He might actually want to coach our club for a lengthy period of time knowing full well he may miss out on coaching his son in his prime.
I think the West’s Tigers coaching job is more attractive than the Panther’s coaching job in terms of personal success, building a club from the ground up, carving your own path without having an overbearing manager questioning your every move.
However at some stage over the next 2 years he’ll work out what he really wants.
In a way Nathan signing long term with Penrith really gives him a ginuine fork in the road.
Well said.
How can the Broncos possibly sign players knowing that Uncle Wayne won't be there beyond 2019 and not knowing precisely who is replacement is?

Ummm maybe because they are an established and successful club who dont need to prove anything. Or sign players to improve their squad.
You tell Broncos fans that they don't need to prove anything, especially after first round KO in this year's finals.

Oh how different things would have been if Bellamy had come our way. We could only dream.

I’m sure there was a story of Bellamy wanting to stay connected to Brisbane as his kids were still at school. Never heard of Bennett talking him out of it. Wayne must have softened on us then as he did talk Marshall into coming back.

I was living in QLD at the time, the story is well known.

Bennet advised Bellamy we were too unstable at board level, he was proven correct time and time again for the next however many years.

I dont think it was something they admitted at the time, more something that came out in an interview a couple of years after the fact.
Its an opinion!

Bennett has his pros and cons
Pros
Players want to play under him
He would bring in quality players
He knows how to manage players
He would change the culture of the team
He is respected in the NRL
Cons
When he leaves a lot of players he brings with him leave with him leaving huge holes in the team and pretty much have to rebuild the team again
Boyd would follow him to the Tigers
How much longer does he want to coach for?
I doubt he would come to the Tigers
GO THE TIGERS !!!!

Well there's 3 fairly recent premiership winning coaches sitting around doing nothing.
Punt the re-builder and buy a winner. Think 'what would easts do' and do that.

Happy Wayne is without doubt a legen of the game, but the shinning light is now flickering and being a magnet at attracting players is on the wane.

If we need a new coach, it’s time to look at the next generation. Not sure Hogo has the runs on the board but as people have said talk to the Melbourne or Brisbane assistant coaches. I don’t think we need to keep going back to the same old coaches. Anyway the way I read the situation we will not be in the market for a coach for 2 years

Deep down i don't want Madge here ... his game plans as Souths became stale and predictable and there is no way of knowing if he has overcome that.

I would take Bennett in a heart beat though. Arguably the best coach in history with a point to prove ...

Maguire isn't perfect, that I agree on. But he's probably the best of those available that would actually come here and have the ability to recruit talent (I think Bennett is a 0% chance to come here). If he ends up going to Manly we're left with Toovey, Henry and Hasler of the established coaches or someone like O'Brien if we wanted to give a rookie a go. Not sure who I'd pick from that list.

Wayne Bennett is 68. He has been a champion coach but surely the Rigors of coaching will soon catch up with him? Do we want a 70 year old coach?

Is it possible that, now that Gus has managed to get Nathan's signature, the Panther's wont be chasing Ivan after all?

Just a thought.
