I was going to add 'smartest league brain not already formally employed at another club' because I was thinking the Phil Gould would otherwise be on the short list. However fuck that - anyone can be bought if offered enough coin. Of course there may be plenty of superior options to Phil Gould - his commentary role puts him on a pedestal however the loudest voice shouldn't be confused for the smartest voice (as evidence of this I present Mr Jim Doyle).Didn't surprise me one little bit.
and the bastard that appointed them, was that Doyle or Watson?
Nick Politis?? joking
Phil Gould?? Not joking...how would he go...he didn't get Penrith anywhere but he did set up their system
It isn't a big list because the skill set is very wide. The Bulldogs would not be in the shite they are now if Bullfrog Moore was still alive. His skill at recruitment lasted way beyond his death because he set them up with a system. That has all gone now so they have to start again.
