    Yeah but with that logic we should all be praising hitler for what he did for banking and medicine... Yeah... I don't think so.

    I’ve read some shit in my time but this will do for today. The grace and eloquence in particular are hilarious.

    All I'm saying is, many people on here seem to despise and hate Wayne for whatever reason when we should simply respect the man who made us what we are. We should be grateful for the success he's given us and now, we move on a year sooner.

    I don't care how Seibold does financially, that's not my business. I want him to win us premierships and he's under immense pressure to take us to that level of success.

    Such is life if you wanna take the reins of the biggest club in Australia. I'm confident after a few years his drive, determination and innovative ideas will bring us the success we all want.

  14. Unfortunately in this business, it's difficult to write your own fairytales. If it was up to the Brisbane Broncos, the meeting with Craig Bellamy would never have been leaked, Bennett would have served out his contract and Brisbane would have announced Seibold in a timely manner.

    Everybody had different ideas, it became a circus and there was never going to be an easy way out for everyone. Either Wayne got his shot at a happy ending, leaving Seibold to flap in the wind, or it would transpire the way that it has with a brief announcement.

    In this situation you either fall into two camps. On one side is the sentimental camp, the one that believes Bennett had this young squad on track and was capable of premiership glory in 2019. The other is the side that begs for the Broncos of yesteryear, the side that doesn't compromise and is constantly looking towards the future.

    There will be time to celebrate Bennett's career and everything he's done for the club in both stints. For now, it's a beginning of a brand new era and Seibold has the opportunity to forge his own legacy. It's a blank slate and all eyes will be on how he handles the rest of the pre-season.

    Thanks for your service Wayne, shame it had to end this way but you brought a lot of it on yourself in the end.

    What are you basing your confidence off? Seibold has only coached in the NRL for one season and did really well.

    I'm not saying he won't continue his success from Souths but we all better hope he isn't the next Griffin and Henjak.

  18. Would it make any sense for the Rabbits to leak it though? By doing that they are going to proper piss Bennett off, the guy who will be their coach for 3 years.

    We can only speculate because I doubt the truth of who leaked it will ever come out, but the only person I can see who would have motivation to leak it is Seibold himself. He was **** furious, he lost his shit, it's not a huge leap to think he went home and said **** this bullshit and leaked it to the media. It is after all, his words that were leaked.

    What motivation would a random staffer at the Rabbits have to do it unless they seriously dislike Seibold and wanted him out ASAP, or unless they seriously dislike WB but then by doing that they're getting him a year early.

    I don't know, it's a mess. The end result better be worthwhile.

    Wayne is going to have to have some Cowboys like luck to do well with Souths next season if you believe that leaked email. If he plays GI at the back it will be a Christmas miracle if he lasts 10 rounds, let alone the entire season.

    Wayne is about as gracious as a featherless swan taking a dump.
