    Anytime... just breathe bro, we will get there. I know we all want signings, they are coming, from whom my wife and I were at dinner with I’m very confident with their direction... ive been told the clubs doing A heck of a lot behind the scenes and it will all come to fruition..

    yes, you might not hear about it in the papers.... cards being kept close to their chest... but be sure to not listen to the mole, the lurker, janes hooper, buzz, Paul kunt... they done themselves no favours with their reporting on mad Monday... they aren’t being told shit.

    No thanks.

    Considering where we were just 12 months ago I’m more then happy to be patient for another couple of years before asking questions. By then there will be more then enough evidence to see if these guys got it right or wrong.

    I like Gus but we don’t need his power trips AND how do you do a complete review into the dragons and recommend Paul McGregor keep his position?
    I know Dean Pay is a scape goat by some but I wonder how he’d go with McGregor’s roster of rep players

    Gus went there as a representative of Paul as his eyes and ears, was never gonna get the boot... to me clubs in crisises Need consulting, we aren’t in crisis. Gould needs to run the game with vlandys instead of that bald baboon greenturd

    I too think there’s a plan and we just haven’t seen it yet. The club is not guilty of doing nothing and some of the accusations on here are both unfounded and premature.

    As for Gus - no. Has knowledge and relationships yes, but too big an ego and would want too much power. We got rid of that problem when we got rid of the former Chairman - to re-introduce something similar would be - in my opinion - a mistake.

    Not correct SBW was brought to the Club by our then NZ scout John Ackland in 2002. Ackland was also responsible for bringing Roy asotsai & hutch Maiava to the Dogs.

    I know Mark Hughes has a seat on the current recruitment committee but it doesn't seem like he takes a lead roll in actually signing "established players" from outside the club otherwise you would think he would have been the one to fly to the UK instead of the inexperienced Andrew Hill ?

    All media speculation about why Andrew hill was there... just because he went there and media decide to throw names up doesn’t mean it’s the reason...

    Peter Mulholland was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma last year, I’m sure recruiting is the last thing on his mind atm.

    The Raiders are supporting him through this...

    So it is not prudent to contract an industry expert in upon occasion?
    His input/opinion will either validate the direction taken, or point out possible flaws.
    Also better to have him onside for when his push for the job at NRLol is realised.
    Long game and utilisation of peoples skills in our best interests are why I would contract him as a consultant upon a casual basis.

    Blend 43?
    Thought Deano was more an International Roast type of guy... you know, what with his love of solid hard working country white boys!

    No, I wouldn’t. Perhaps maybe at the beginning when we first went through our cap dramas when the new board took over, but not now... no

    Someone who worked at the Dogs and went to the NRL didn’t do us any favours last time (Greenberg) - so don’t see why that would be different with Gus.

    Yet he's not a footy man, he's a grub!
    At least Gus has league in his heart!
