So much for the Rabbits story that they were happy with what they had even after losing several key support staff to us
No shock really. I still think brisbane should have kept him on “gardening leave” to screw with bennett after him blasting the club and bs’ing about not planning on bringing demetriou to souths. Demetriou would have still been getting paid but it would have screwed bennetts pre-season..

You can't really halt a family and their life for a year just at some stupid attempt to get back at an ex employee.

Halt a family and their life? If my employees said to me I would be on “gardening leave” for a year I hardly doubt I’d be going home in tears, I’d be jumping for the moon! And how is it getting back at an ex employee if bennett blasted the club and proclaimed he wasnt going to bring him to souths? Are you implying bennett was lying the whole time?

I didn't imply anything about Bennett, what is it with you and making stupidly wild assumptions like that, and then posting as if members said something that their post didn't even reference?

You might be jumping for the moon, and well that's awesome. But from all accounts, it would seem that JD wants to be a head coach. A year of no development, and no experience in the role doesn't sound like a decision that would benefit his future career.

How is that a wild jump? If the broncos were punishing bennett by keeping jason demetriou from going to souths it would mean bennett was lying in his initial press conference. You said they would be doing it to get back at him, how if he wasnt planning on bringing him? Are you implying bennett was therefore lying? Note the question mark, I didnt jump to any conclusions otherwise why would I ask it as a question?
Also, I doubt that would hold his career back in anyway whatsoever. If he was doing no self decelopment over a year long break do you really think he would be a candidate for a head coach role?

I didn't imply a thing about Bennett. I responded to you.

I still think brisbane should have kept him on “gardening leave” to screw with bennett after him blasting the club and bs’ing about not planning on bringing demetriou to souths. Demetriou would have still been getting paid but it would have screwed bennetts pre-season..

You can’t be happy with what you have when there is nothing to be happy about.

"New South Sydney coach gets his man"

I don't even know what's going on anymore. Souths don't want any of Wayne's staff from the Broncos because they're happy with what's there now. Wayne says he is happy with the South Sydney staff so won't be bringing anyone with him. The Broncos fire Demetriou. Souths sign Demetriou and the media makes it out to be some kind of coup for Wayne and the club. FMD these muppets are killing me.

I hope Bennett is more than happy with his staff and players. That way, he can keep his filthy old hands off ours

It's common to take your assistants with you, and I have no doubt Wayne always wanted to bring JD along, but he got told by the club he couldn't

Of course he is going to say he is happy with the assistants Souths are giving him.....what else can he say?

With JD's sacking, Wayne will have gone to old Rusty and said sign up this up and coming star right now, so he did :)

Simples :)

Sounds like a good news story all round. I'm not sure why anyone would think it a good idea to be vindictive to either Bennet, Demetriou or South's.
We need to be focussed on our own future and developing what we have.
That means establishing a long term plan to develop pathways for local juniors, build up the skills, resilliance and athleticism of younger players, whilst giving a platform for senior players deemed worthy to be leaders.
None of that involves former coaches or opposition clubs.

To clarify, by Muppets I meant the media. Got no issue with what Wayne said or Souths signing JD etc. It's just funny that the article I read made it sound like this was their intention all along and they'd been going hard for JD.
