You make a good point. Call them beasts, call them by name, label them anything you want. Give them no ones. Point is, they suck right now because SK isnt able to get the best out of these players. Plain and simple.

The regression in this team over the last month has been astounding.
When SK was playing he was probably the best in the world in his position, and there were some good players around then. The only weakness I saw to his game came at the Warriors, where being a big tall guy in a side with poor defenders he could be a target for small fast players running around him.

Both when he ran and when he tackled it was like his life depended on it, just ask Jared McCracken when he dumped him on his head.

He was the same on his hit ups, he was a fearsome runner. His speed and intensity made any tackler think for his safety, and sometimes take the safer option.

The guy was a very intense professional. If any player in the side cannot learn something from SK they should be given the bullet, clear and simple. Forget motivation, he would have to be a very sound technical coach, if a player cannot thrive on that then they just don't have the ticker required. Clear and simple.

The regression in the side probably comes from some guys who are not up to it and know they are for the chop, it must be tough for the others.

And wheres the development??? We still see no improvement in the obvious flaws of so many of these players.
Tui is gone, to my mind that's a good development. Perhaps Cleary the poly whisperer can improve his flaws, but I doubt it..

Look at the team selection. Every week its the same clowns. No accountability for their mistakes or poor performances the week before. Drop a ball, miss a tackle, no worries, if your name is Bodene Thompson, Ryan Hoffman, Shuan Johnson, Maumalo, Kata or a Roger Tuivasa-Sheck - your protected species.

And wheres the development??? We still see no improvement in the obvious flaws of so many of these players. When is SK going to demand Shaun Johnson attack the line and take a hit???? when are we going to see Kata pass the ball????

On point as always Beastmode.

Kearney has learned from the best in Bellamy and Bennett. However, he has only learned to copy and does not understand what he is doing. This makes him incapable of adapting what he has learned to a new team or situation. Bellamy and Bennett are smart men. Kearney is not.

I feel like I want to walk away and come back once he inevitably gets himself fired.

Surely even the give Kearney a chance brigade will get tired of the sound of their own voices soon.

Pathetic excuse for a coach, this team will not be a winning team under him, he can barely string a sentence together, refuses to drop players, he is a joke and this team is a disgrace under him, lucky we have this year and two more of his crap cause he won't be going anywhere. CNK should get the fuck out while he can, dropping him for an unfit Kata and continuing to play Bodene shows what a moron this guy is.

100% spot on. They only way out of this shithole is to punt everything which is currently been implemented. Our player identification / retention is a joke. Why is it other clubs can grab our home gown players and turn them into very good players. Yet when we get them back we turn them into duds.
Kearney is out of his depth. If we're not very careful NZ leagues role will be as a feeder club to all the Aussie NRL teams

The saddest part is we could of had Toovey or Cleary as coach and now we are totally screwed, Jim Doyle hang your head in shame, this is what happens when ceos get involved in the football side of the business.

No wonder we can only recruit Kiwis, imagine talking to Kearney about joining the club, you would run away as fast as you could.

If Ivan Cleary was the goods Phil Gould would still have him at the Panthers, if Ivan Cleary was a better coach he wouldn't be at the Tigers..

Who is Toovey, the invisible man?

Maybe Cleary didnt lick Goulds balls properly, How are the panthers going this year? Cleary did a lot bettter with a lot less talent, ten times the coach kearney will ever be

If that was the case, he would have never bought him to the Panthers in the first place.

Gould probably thought if Cleary can turn the Warriors into an average side rather than the usual pathetic Warriors teams we all know and love, surely he could do better at the panthers...but no, i think Gould worked out pretty quickly Cleary was only ever going to produce middle of the table sides, always hovering just inside or just outside the eight.

Man , people are so fickle.
Imagine being a Newcastle fan for the the last 2 years , how many sack Nathan Brown threads are there?
Ok SK has his first season - not even fully through it and some of you clowns are calling for his head. You seriously think after the amount of coaches they've been through so far isn't helping.
How about we stick with a coach for more than 2 years and see what they can do.

I reckon this game in 2010 started to make Gus start to think about Ivan,



I was at this game and have never been prouder of the Warriors than the ticker they showed that day.

Panthers had 59 tackles in our 20. We only had 8 in theirs, yet we held on to win. That final 20 min defense was awesome. The tape doesn't show all the offside crowd penalties the refs were giving the Panthers. It was pretty disgusting, but we hung in.

Ivan managed to get the Warriors to somehow win ugly.

Kearney seems to be fine with losing so long as they follow some process that is clearly not working.
