Not like Seibold was an angel. He basically denied Furner from being an NRL head coach by lying about the Broncos job if any of that is to be believed.

I can't see how you'd take WB being the bad guy in all of that, if anything I see Seibold doing a lot more wrong in that article. WB was never lying about his intentions and was upfront, Seibold was lying to his former employer about his intentions.

It's all water under a bridge now, I'm on team Seibold but I'm not going to hate on Wayne because News LTD told me to with BS biased articles and years of smear campaigns.

I don't want to start all this up again about Bennett so agree to disagree there, also not saying that Seibold was blameless too.

In terms of denying Furner the job at Souths, surely he did them a favour.

I only caught the end of the segment on Ch9’s 100% Footy with Gould last night, but did he say that Bennett has agreed to coach Penrith, but they took Cleary instead? Where does this fit in to the timeline of general fuckery?

I was reading another thing on that situation at Penrith last night too. Gus was told Bennett was there if he wanted him, but apparently keeping their 7 was far more important than bringing in a coach that, you know, can coach well.

Yep and Gould has confirmed that. Kinda flies in the face of the whole Bennett being left without any options and kicked out the door.

Just to be clear I love Bennett, think he was smart to be organising an alternative and happy that he was doing that; I am just sick of the bullshit narrative being peddled that poor old Bennett was blindsided and only ever had plans to be here this year but was just so lucky that the Rabbitohs job opened up.

Kinda wish he got the Penrith job. Gould and Bennett working together would have been hilarious.
I'm glad he got the souths job instead. Blind freddy could coach souths to the finals, but bennett going to the panthers would have turned them into another contender, instead they signed the most overrated coach of all time who is spudding it up.

Oh I agree on the Furner part.

It works out for both parties in the end, I'm of the belief South's got one of the best coaches in the game and arguably the best coach for their playing group and we (I seriously hope) got the best young coach in the game for the long term.

Jury is still out on Seibold but I believe he's got the makings of a good long term coach and I just hope he wasn't a one season wonder because we've banked out future on him now.

Siebs has plenty of time to prove himself. On a five year deal and they could finish dead last the next two seasons and his job would still be safe. There aren't any excuses, the Broncos have the best young up and comers in the game and if that doesn't bring a title in the next half decade, then it may never happen again in our lifetime.

I remember similar comments being made about the 2008 cohort of youngsters, and 11 years later here we are.

You really think we could finish dead last in the next 2 seasons and his job would be safe? I think that's wishful thinking.

5 years for a 2nd year unproven coach was always a ridiculous offer.

We're here now however so I do hope he has success.

It will be fucking rough watching Souths win the premiership this year however.

I'd be amazed if there wasn't a clause to sack him for missing the 8.

Trust me when I say this: if we finish dead last the next two seasons NO ONE would be safe, not even the canteen ladies.
