That doesn't fit the timelines that have been reported, nor the accepted "wisdom" of those that feel Bennett has done the dirty.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.
If Bennett's primary infraction was dealing behind the scenes with Souths, you may recall that this all happened way after any rumours of an immediate switch were reported. The "untenable" word was thrown around from the moment Bennett was announced as Souths' coach, and it was shortly after that that the clubs and officials were working at ways to facilitate the early switch.
Now that people are blaming Bennett for the Broncos' support staff being left without jobs just shows how far beyond reason this debate is getting.
