Look back a few years and they had Tedesco, Moses as well as Brooks. The other two kicked on a lot more than the one they were left with.

The try assist stats between him and Benji don't make pretty reading. He will obviously see more ball next year so a lot riding on him to guide their attack.

James Tedesco, Mitchell Moses, Josh Ado Carr, Josh Aloai, Ryan Paps, all because they couldn't let go of Benji and robbie!

I know our record since 2011 isn't great. Could be worse we could be the Tigers, only club not to have made the finals since then.

Our coach churn gets discussed. They are probably just as bad.

Were going to have a board meeting to sack the coach but that has been called off now.

Board room sharpening the knives for the coach Game of Thrones style. Do you think there will be another season of Tales from Tiger Town. Could be interesting if they turn into more of a basket case.

I really hope the Tigers sack Maguire then Nathan has enough balls to go that's my defensive coach, let's go get him. Then when Nathan has shaped the team for the next two seasons he stands down as coach to be head of football department and gives madg the job? (Just an idea). That way there is some sort of continuity in the coaching department, I think brownie would be great in a role like that?

They might end up there if they don't get their act together soon, better them than us.
Would be an easy solution but unfortunately NRL seems to fail with relocations and I doubt Perth would accept a loser team over their Pirates bid which has had juniors playing for years.
Need to cull some sydney teams but no one want it to be theirs, I’d say you’d get a south’s style sook March if they got moved like the last time the NRL tried to deal with a shit team

I can't see the ARLC getting rid of any Sydney side or forcing them to relocate. The talk before the Commission was formed was about making tough decisions. The NRL media were all saying how they need to consolidate teams or review the geographical spread of the sides.

After the Commission was formed it came out how the ownership of the NRL or ARLC was the clubs and the two main states. As we have seen if the clubs get unhappy they can gather the numbers and throw a hissy fit and the ARLC back down so they keep their jobs or there is change.

They also use the broadcast deal needing 8 games a week. So unless we have an odd amount like they might move to if they let in another club soon then the only option is relocation.

Can only see a club relocating if they are in big trouble. But like you mentioned most areas will want a new club instead of one that has failed elsewhere. I'm not totally across the AFL but I believe the Swans are a relocated side, any others? In Australasia relocation doesn't seem to be as popular as America.

A smart club would put a game or two over there a year and build a fan base so if they do need to move they started getting a footing in the new location. The way the NRL clubs run they would want to keep their home games but have the other clubs move theirs.

Monday Macguire is about to be fired. Wait a minute no press release.

Tuesday. He's our guy, knives away. I know that is traditionally not a good sign.

Have to laugh how Rothfields usual discussion is how he had an article written but had to pull it. Probably annoyed as he needs to write another one which cuts into his drinking time. He also goes on about their recruitment. Think the issue there is more the club than the coach being the turn off.

Still think its going to be tough for them next year. Think their problems are more than just the coach which has been the change they have been making.

Brisbane Lions is ‘sort of’ a relocation in AFL, Brisbane had an expansion club that merged with Fitzroy(?) I believe.
The problem with the Sydney teams is they are essentially Brands vs geographical teams, with the exception of Penrith and Parramatta which serve a decent sized geographical area (could argue Cronulla and Manly but they are small areas)
The rest of the teams are pretty much overlapping each other, I was shocked when I moved here that from my house I could drive 10 mins and be in Tigers/Bulldogs/Roosters/Souths/Parramatta catchment areas. Realistically you only need 1 of Souths/Dragons/Sharks(Illawarra outlier that could possibly stand alone) and 1 of Roosters/Tigers(Balmain) or Bulldogs/Tigers(Campbelltown), realistically Parramatta could probably absorb Bulldogs too.
It’s the same in Melbourne with the AFL but I’m not sure it’s sustainable long term
