Certainly hope this is bullshit about flanno and Barrett. But wouldn't put it past Flanno. For some reason I get the impression that he's been told how magnificent he is throughout his junior days by coaches looking for advancement from his father. If Barrett has told him he needs to improve in several areas I could see Flanno taking it very personally. Just don't see him as a player that takes criticism well whether it's constructive or not.

But in saying that, I am sceptical about 99% of what journos come out with.

Cant really understand the hate and vitriol against Flanagan. It's only coming from The kennel. The club does not share this opinion.
However, I do believe we have better options at half, especially with BBO.
Hows his attitude at training?
Does he listen to the coach and implement coachs plan?
Flanagan certainly did not seem to have the boys on the field behind him in the games played last year.

Who knows? with a much improved pack he might go better than last year. Im happy to take Gus at his word and give Flanagan a go.

Rumours are what they are rumours !
I have previously mentioned that...
1. Former fellow student of Kyle said: he did have an attitude and and a personality issues at school...Was it peers jealousy ?
2. People say Flanagan Snr interfered in his game at the Rorters...I ask did he really ?
3. Now, the friction allegations with TBaz...Is it true ?
All these rumours makes me wonder...Are they just rumours ?
We all have individual assumptions but are left with one question...
Is Flanagan a genuine or Fake footballer ?
If he isn't genuine don't expect Gus Tbaz or a teammate to tell you so...Time will !!!

Not naming who, former great ........ said to me recently, Canterbury should not have signed Flanagan, revealing Robinson knew he wasn't good enough...In hindsight ?

The big fella's horse Tycoonist has trekked north to race for the big bucks on Saturday on the GC it is Millions day.Pretty big test/rise in class but his bloke could run a cheeky race.
I think the mare no 14 Isotope wins the race she is VERY classy(and most unlucky the last 12 months)

Good luck Gus!!
The bonny mare FAR Too good as i said.Gus's ran a fn cracker despite the knocker of its form lol

That's pretty aewsome from the club if that's how it played out. Plus doesn't burn a bridge if he ever had the chance to return in the future.
It is certainly believable that Gus did it this way, he has expressed a philosophy of footy management that matches this approach.

Us and the roosters were in totally different positions at the end of 2020. They were looking for a premiership in 2021, we were looking to not run last.

His form in 2020 for the roosters was good enough to make our side in 2021. He regressed though.

Lots of experts saying stuff in hindsight. I can’t recall any of these so called experts saying it was a bad signing at the time

Geez there’s some real dumb f#cks walking this planet, honestly these dickheads saying Flanno needs a chance in this new team have dog shit for brains
The shit Flanagan dished up last year had nothing to do with who he was surrounded with, shit kicks, dropped balls, passes to nothing but grass, missed tackles, he went to Mounties and turned them to shit and made Lewis look like Thurston
