This guy got away with murder or at least highway robbery with us and now he's getting the acolades!

Once again he's walked into an established and talented side and he’s reaping the rewards for it. I feel for the Sea Eagles because they’ll be where we are soon in a few years when those back ended contracts catch up to them.

Then there’s the Bulldogs who are still reeling from what he did to us. He let go of true Bulldogs in his time and replaced them with Sea Eagles has-beens on big contracts. Ironically he’s now got Marty Taupau running out on his side after getting rid of him!

There’s no denying we somehow got worse with Pay since he’s come in, but this has all started from Des and we can’t forget that.

Dean Pay sadly is not an NRL coach. He kept the shit structures Des had and anything new he’s added has us even worse.

Tough time being a Bulldog supporter right now. I watch all the games and see former Bulldogs out there playing for other teams, while our side are imposters running in our proud colours.

We need a complete factory reset. Get rid of the players, get rid of the coaching staff and start again. This whole slow rebuild shit isn't working.

The biggest mistake we made was in our timing of sacking Des. It was 100% politically motivated and we left ourselves with 0 decent options for a coach.

We are at risk of making that same mistake again if we sack Pay before lining up a proven coach.

Cartwright played a role in assembling that team. Add in what he did with the Titans when you look now he actually did a good job at that club.

He is still an assistant at Manly and will keep Des in check. When Manly last won I think Toovey was assistant so he had strong leaders and it wasn't all solely on Des. Dibsaster & Raelene Clownnstle gave him too much control.

Blame Dib and Castle for our salary cap. Des was told to play to a higher salary cap. Des also should of been our coach moving forward as we would of kept a top coach during these hard times (and Des would of got the best out of them, when Des took over Manly they were tipped for the bottom four). The funny thing is more than half of yous wanted Des gone for a rookie coach, e.g. Pay. To me it was quite bizarre. Pay is here because no top coach in their right mind would want to coach here as it's career suicide. If we F up recruitment for 2021 we're going to be a meme like the Titans moving forward.

They are top four imo. Not sure what you watched last year and this year so far. Their roster went from looking like a bottom four team (2018) to a top four team (2019/20).

You do remember that the club sacked Des right?
And still had to pay Des the 2 years of his new contract that was never taken up, because the club sacked him.

And Des sued us and won.

You honestly need to get over it, Des is still a very good coach and one of the best in the game. Plenty of better coaches in world sport have had everything turn to shit and then turned it all around after a break at another club, it happens..

The club has had long enough to get things heading in the right direction but have simply done no where near enough. Absolutely embarrassing, basically the new Parra.

I’m not really a fan of Castle, but Greenberg was at the club when Des was given too much control. Let’s place the blame where it belongs.
