    TBH i dont care where the motivation came from, or even if we end up paying Des 2 million. Des is gone, and thats all i wanted, whatever the cost.

    With all the heavily back ended contracts and fuck ups in recruitment the dogs should counter sue Des for impersonating a coach.

    There was rumours that Des Hasler would be offered the Blues job. Channel 9 reported tonight that it is between only 4 candidates and listed them as Michael Macguire, Brad Fittler, John Cartwright & David Furner. If given to John or David they would have to step down from their current Assistant Coaches jobs with Manly and Souths Respectively. So no Des Hasler mentioned!!!

    The potential legal action seems to have gone quiet. Anyone think Des has decided not to sue or do you think his lawyer is just waiting for the matter to be listed and heard?

    Was going to sue us, but after looking at the stats, and 14 nose whistles, he decided it wasn't worth it.

    Exactly, will it be a completion or end up as just another turnover. Let's not risk it.

    Des wants to sue us because he signed a contract earlier this year which has not been honored by the club. Now this contract signing prevented Des from looking for another contract from 2018 onwards meaning he is worse off - that is why he wants to sue us. Now I'm not a fan of Des by any means but I certainly can understand where he's coming from. Anyone else would look at this as their former employer screwing them - Des is not different, and anyone here would certainly do the same if $2,000,000 was at stake.

    I do agree with you that he was screwed out of a likely St George deal. Still I guess the question remains what did he sign, what did it say and was it binding.

    That is a good question, but his manager is just as stupid for not reviewing it properly.

    Let's be honest here...nobody who had a set of eyes and watched our 2017 season, was ever going to consider Des as a coach. He burned his own resume there.

    The bloke couldn't even land the NSW gig from a truly shit Daley (and downright average list of suitors). If you can't do that you know your career is over.

    From what has been said, Des never actually signed a contract just a memorandum of understanding. Completely different thing.

    His manager should have known better.

    Yes, so legally the Bulldogs are correct, however Des and/or his manager are stupid for not reviewing it.

    Probs working out a settlement with the club. He should walk away with a fat cheque.
