    Well isn't Ivan on $1.6 million a season and Nathan on $1 million.
    Success for them

    Serves Penrith and Ivan right. Penrith punted Griffin and Gus for Ivan and they're 2-8. Ivan completely screwed over the Tigers who are now better off without him and showed how little class he had with the way he handled things.

    He's getting what he deserves now and shows how bad a coach he actually is. I thought he knew his shit but his win percentage for his career is like 43% or something and you can't argue with those numbers.

    Yeah I rated Ivan but there's no defending the crap he's dishing out lol. Always thought Nathan was abit over hyped. One of those players who got huge wraps based on his age and future potential but is yet to step up into that elite level. He has plenty of time to do so though, we'll see

    Funny thing is he can’t drop his son to reserve grade or the son will cry to mum and Ivan will be without pussy for a while.

    Might be some awkward looks at the dinner table.

    Who would want to be a coach...seriously.

    Many on here were saying we should go for Cleary, now they seem a little quiet.

    There are so many factors at play in the coaching arena...

    Like everyone calling for Pay to be sacked yet there’s not a lot out there to turn to, sure there’s maybe someone like Walters, but there’s a lot of unknowns with him also.

    Gotta say I'm really enjoying watching the panthers and clearys flop - I hope they stay on the bottom rung

    Apparently wherever Ivan has coached in the past his team's have always had the worst attacking stats in the comp. This was mentioned by Rothfield on fox last night. Yet he still managed to con Penrith out of 1.5 million a year.......the guys a genius lol.

    I could only laugh at how bad the Penrith Clearys' played that last game...that collision at the back.

    And Maloney missing out on his last chance to impress Freddy due to suspension is the cherry on top.

    Even worse is being the coach to your son at NRL level! Hahaha.
    Serves the riff and Ivan right for all being such betraying slime.

    The Pampers fans would boo a boy scout helping a little old lady across the road but I have never ever heard such loud and long boos at both half time and full time, not directed at the referees or the opposition but at their own team. Won't be long until those drums are beating a lot louder and they are calling for the sacking of their Judas coach and his over hyped son....

    To me Penrith players are performing as if if they have no respect for their coach giving him little option but to demote them, all except his son of course and the Penrith fans will not accept that for much longer unless they can turn it around and start playing footy...

    Very few jobs out there were you get sacked for being shit and paid out your contract.

    Sounds alright to me.

    FUN FACTS:
    Ivan Cleary has never won a wooden spoon as a player.
    Ivan Cleary has never won a wooden spoon as a coach.
    Panthers last wooden spoon was 2007.

    I don't think many of the players were happy with Gould being forced out, or Griffin being given the arse.

    Definitely not a happy camp and they are revolting on the field.
