I'm certainly of the opinion that under Bennett we'd stopped going forward, but without him it seems he was one of the few things stopping us going dramatically backwards.
I still think this is crap. He was introducing a lot of the new young players. We had to go backwards before we could go forward when bringing those players in because those players were learning. Certain older players were going backwards but they were on their way out, probably earlier with Bennett at the helm. He’s taken a far worse Rabbitohs team to the exact place Seibold did, almost making them look better in certain areas and adding to certain players games.

The board worked very hard to get the power off Bennett. They aren’t going to give it up easily. Hence why I don’t believe they’re going to bring someone like Donaghy in and let him change things up. Paul White will probably leave when they announce a new Brisbane team, now that he’s weakened us. There’s a reason he’s still running the club from the shadows and hasn’t taken a job elsewhere. Either nobody wants him or he’s got a job that doesn’t exist yet that he’s been planning for while now.

There’s simply no way they could unintentionally **** things up this badly.

I am now on that boat as well.
I admit I thought our retrocess was more due to Bennett than anything else, especially after our stellar 2015, which I still believe had Walters fingerprints.
I still believe he had a large contribution due to his choices, especially with our spine, but on the other hand, I'm sure he would knocked down quite a few heads that really needed it, and we wouldn't have had the spoon. I also am certain we wouldn't have made a dent in the finals, even if we got there.

I guess we'll see going forward whether the board is that inept or whether 2020 was just Seibold's complete inability to instil work ethic, humility, camaraderie, sacrifice and team work in a team where youthful players were completely full of themselves...

Knights.
Anthony Seibold also joins the coaching ranks as a part-time Coaching Consultant, with a focus on coaching the coaches.

And so there you are. That’s where we fucked up - we had him coaching the players.

So the odds of Newcastle to finish last next season and their coach sacked have just shortened dramatically.

So he can learn new tricks, if (when) the Knights go belly up, it's the coach's fault, not the consultant who advised him to burn the boats. A cat always lands on his feet.

Siebs has somehow landed himself a job as a coaches consultant. This is like the captain of the costa concordia giving boating lessons.
That is a puzzler. Perhaps it's a case of having an influential player manager as his manager!? McCulloch has trodden that path to the hunter last year also, just a guess.

I just hope he doesn’t use the great bonds he built at our club to lure away our players.

Boy would we have egg on o it face if you convinced Croft to join you again in Newy, Seibs.

It doesn't really interest me, and perhaps is for another thread, but some of the fan content the club produces (when they can actually be bother to produce any) is extremely lacklustre.

Honestly, you could ask a third year media/communication uni student to do it for free for their portfolio/experience, and they'd produce something of a higher quality.

Amateur hour is spot on, Sproj Sproj. Compare the crap we put out to sports clubs from around the world and it's like we're living 20 years behind the times.

Absolutely, I've ranted about this many times over the years. Who ever handles the digital media and marketing of the club is a dunce. Where are the interesting documentaries about pre-season training? Interesting interviews with the players? Anything? It's boring as shit and this is the club with one of the biggest budgets. Tigers, Newcastle, Penrith, Melbourne, Raiders all do a far better job to produce content, and that's just going off memory.

Biggest supporter base in the league and Paul White does nothing with it.

I still remember an interview they released when Isaako was re-signed a few years back, couldn’t hear a word he said over the music. They haven’t gotten any better.

Steele Tallon. General Manager Communications & digital media. Although this is on the website, it too is probably out of date !
