Canterbury coach Dean Pay leads a list of NRL coaches under immense pressure after Stephen Kearney’s brutal weekend axing by the Warriors. The Bulldogs had a frenzied finish against Cronulla …

His expectations on this team are simply not at NRL level. To say he was proud of that performance last night shows he just doesn't get it.
Ya hate kicking someone when they're down and it's sad to get to this but its a results based business. There's millions of dollars in sponsorship, tv, merch, careers. There's no room for all so rans. The guy doesn't have the nous. Never once picked the best 17., bench rotations etc. No more excuses or mediority from the Bulldogs. Do something to change this decline. Not too much to ask to get a plan together.

If he was working in any real business and delivering such results, he'd have been out on his arse already.

6 month probation, underperform = strike 1, underperform = strike 2, underperform = thanks for your time but its not working out.

Instead we seem to piss about expecting a miracle to suddenly and magically occur.

It won't.

and whilst we apparently have a warchest of money, that is completely wasted by putting a coach so far out of their depths in charge of it.

Would be like getting the cleaner to do the accountancy work, it won't end well.

If the board can't make the decision to send him adrift (which should have been done in the covid19 downtime or offseason), then they only have themselves to blame when they are outed.


My primary concern however is looking at the clubs social media, people are blowing smoke up the clubs arse as if they are watching a completely different game where we are actually doing well.

That would be the Russians and NRL HQ bots.

I wouldn't mind this cleaner as my accountant.

LOL nah, I think some fans are just happy to see signs of life for once, rather than witness a dead horse each game.
That's half the problem though.

People bar up at glimpses of excitement and get ahead of themselves.

I'm sure people saw us beat the Dragons and expected us to put 30 on the Roosters the next week, but the blunt reality is we simply aren't good enough.

Those same fans would see us get 12 points up in a game after 20 minutes and consider that the result is a success, even if the final score was us losing 40-12.

I start to get excited when we string a few decent wins together, and perform consistently even in losses.

As it stands I don't think our coach is capable of that. There's too much of "modern day" culture creeping in. That culture where in Under 10s there are no winners or losers, and everyone gets a participation trophy. In junior grades that might be fine, but it just doesn't cut it as a professional club with professional sports people, who SHOULD be perfoming at a higher level and just aren't.

The frustrating thing is our roster DOES have talent amongst it, and is better than what we are showing on field. Again that comes back on our coach not playing to our talents best attributes.

We can TRY and we can HOPE all we want, but until the coach changes, it'll be more of the same.

Any idea of the replacement and whether it will be an interim for the rest of the year and maybe next year, or poach someone?
 

Is it safe yet

Georgallis I would say until they find a coach.Kearney sacking has made the board nervous that if they wait they won’t get who they want and also it doesn’t make them look as bad by not being the first club to sack a coach this year.
All about appearances lol

That's it, there is talent within the side, yet they're lacking the off field training and guidance they need to step it up a notch or two.
Exactly right Nathan :) We are a bit challenged player wise but no team could go well with these selections, bench rotations etc...even Rorters to a large extent.
