    He'll get a job somewhere else. Being Wayne's number 2 is probably a good thing to have on your resume.

    JD played it pretty bad at the Broncos. Probably moved there to get the gig after Bennett. Has gone a bit belly up for him. A miscalculation after a rapid rise in recent years.

    Didn’t Wayne come out saying he was sad and disappointed his henchmen have no jobs now? Why can’t he take JD with him to Souths?
    I think it's because the Souths hierarchy just don't want him. They are happy with who they have there.
  4. I think Bennett has screwed over his staff.

    Yeah they got paid, but if he just swallowed his pride and kept his ego out of it and just finished his contract then his staff would have had a lot more time to try and secure jobs. Now they are unemployed.

    But it was untenable. Everyone said he should leave now. He seriously can't win.

    Yep , some people just love pointing the finger. Must make em feel better about themselves.
  7. There is a reason it became untenable. It has something to do with what I said in my previous comment.

    The Broncos were more than happy to let him see out his contract.

    Do you honestly believe that ?

    We have no choice but to believe that. Bennett and the club have made sure of that.
  10. Yeah, that's pretty well known now..

    The board's plan to begin with was for Bennett to see out his contract but he wanted it his way.

    Yes. Why wouldn't they? If Bennett could have acted like a grown up it would have been the best case scenario. They wouldn't have had to worry about putting certain players offside, and having him here for his last season as a Bronco would have been a licence to print money. "Be there to see the last time Bennett faces Bellemy as a Broncos coach" etc. etc.

    So how does the "see out his final year" offer align with the "untenable" meme?
    I can't see how people believe Bennett is the devil, the club has acted honorably in all things. All us plebs don't know the full facts but I can't believe both sides aren't responsible in part.

    But was it though...?

    Sorry but I don't believe that they did, it was just a games played between all parties to get what they wanted. Which I believe was souths wanted Bennett, Broncos wanted seibold , I think Bennett wanted to stay but push came to shove and in the end he wanted money and to be sacked so he didn't have to walk and seibold obviously wanted to be a Bronco all for 2019.

    It is certainly possible.

    It also wouldn't be silly to think the Broncs did want Bennett as coach for 19 to maximise on what they could from a Bennett swansong year. They could then have had the most promising young coach in the business come in for 20 which was when his original contract expired and have Bennett in a mentoring role for Siebs and the players. If I was in the management position at the Broncs, this is CERTAINLY the outcome I would have been looking for.

    I'm not saying I'm right but it was just never going to work, media and outside pressure would of killed us.
    I also remember Rodger Wilco post that Brisbane wanted Bennett gone so who knows.

    From what we’ve seen of Seibs so far he doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who wants or would listen to a mentor.

    If the board didn't actively seek out a replacement coach for 2019 (Bellamy) when Bennett had a contract, none of this would have happened.

    JD did not improve anything while he was here. Our defense got worse and our attack also was bland. 2015 was our best year for both attack and defence.
