getting rid of cleal (who was hasler left hand man for recruitment/retention) was a good move because we have made to many blunders there for changes not to be made but Dessie is proven quality footy coach and sacking him is the wrong move

I would disagree with the bolded statement LG.
Your team has performed really well the last 2 seasons and I can only assume this sentiment that they haven't performed well, which appears to exist, is based on their form towards the end of this season??
Not sure about the blunders in recruitment either.
Only real blunder I can think of is Hoppa and even then it is only because of the T's & C's he was able to negotiate.
Reading the comments by Mortimer, his and others issue appears to be Dessie not having a grasp on Dogs culture, hence why they are throwing the name of Dean Pay around; but to me that just seems like a really old fashioned (not to mention moronic) 'he was never one of us' type decisions.

Tony william's recruitment, he was fucking horrible. (Will sign with cronulla apparently).
Letting Finucane go.
Curtis Rona is gone now too.
As you mentioned, letting Hoppa not play on sundays.
They are looking like they will be thin on outside backs next year - No Perrett or Rona.
He is right IMP but its more of a mixture of them being good there being a lot of terrible teams in the league over the past few years

Don't mind this
I think you're in good hands there with those 4, but yeah, Browne is a loss-silent achiever.@leaguegod wrote:tim Browne is off to penny sadly
even our strength (our pack) need some players to improve next year, i think we need atleast 2 of fualolo/elliot/RFM/perret to take big steps, all have shown the potential and done well in lower grades but need a couple of them to take the next step

Hopoate could forego his salary for the 5 or 6 games he won't play. No-one could ask him to do it I guess, but even if he gave back half or whatever.
