That's really eerie, great share - thanks.
Also quite sad and somewhat depressing.
Thinking it through, I'd steal Des and demote SK
to the Assistant role vacated by Steve McNamara - it's time to get on with it.
Yup, Dogs are shit this year, however we don't know what's driving that - could be the forwards are sick of working for a novice halves combo with just ok outside backs.
I think Des got the reduced interchange wrong and contracted size over mobility and that has driven current status quo.
Somewhat irrelevant though, any guy who get's to the finals more often than not and rips doors off hinges clearly gives a shit, sees the value in ball playing second rowers (yes, I'm fixated on that presently), can develop youth and attract quality players over time.
Don't care about the rep - we sack coaches, we're already tarred with that brush, it would be worse to hold onto SK
for 3yrs to try correct that rep.
Hire Des first and give SK
the option of Macnamara's role or a ticket out. Campus contract is up so if we need to claw back REM Expenses that's where we'll do it.
With Des signed, we'll position ourselves beautifully for the impending Salary Cap overflow from other teams, players will want to play for Des with some of the roster pieces we'll have left.
Open to a better plan, but waiting it out with SK
is not a better plan.
