    Great post and let's hope that the advisory board is disbanded and someone with real rugby league knowledge is employed in its place.

    Yeah look I think Doyle underestimated the challenge and overestimated his ability to change things.

    what the club needs is not someone who`s passionate about the club or the game, it`s someone who`s been in charge and has successfully run an NRL club someone who`s not scared of telling someone they are no longer required or not qualified for the role. its the only way for this club to move forward

    At least structurally, the Rabbitiohs had John Lee as CEO and appointed Richardson as GM of football. Gould out at the Panthers has a similar role.

    I'm suggesting it as a model for the Warriors because of the inexperience across the organisation.

    Do away with the football advisory board and have someone in a full time capacity.

    Bit late know of course George has been appointed already but hell, if the fans by the Warriors they can all donate ten percent of their wages each week to club and we can get whoever we want!!

    I nominated him for a Papal Knghthood when he got MSS back from the Council, and defended him staunchly until a couple of months ago so what I am trying to prove?

    and the Warriors had John Hart until he upset a few too many of the "old boys".

    It's a fair point mate but with you he's either a Papal Knight or the devil incarnate.

    I got upset by his bullshit, mainly about and involving Foran. If one makes a mistake fair enough, but continually bullshitting to make yourself sound right just insults people.

    Also hearing "sponge" will have a much lesser role to play.

    I think it was more than that. Hart supported Cleary to the hilt and wanted him resigned. I remember hearing rumbles from within the Kiwi "old boy" network about Hart during the controversy about Cleary leaving, so it wasn't just about Bluey arriving. I don't think Bluey had anything to do with it and could probably have done with Harts assistance. I am fairly sure that actually asked Hart to come back later but he had had enough of the joint.

    Spoke with Hart himself about the issue. He left because of Scurrah undermining him and not giving in on Cleary's terms. It was Scurrah who went behind Harts back and lobbied the Board to hire Bluey. Hart was dead against it. He knew that Bluey wasn't up to the job...

    That sounds right. The board i.e. Watson appoint a specialist manager, then take the advice of a non specialist manager against him. Dumb management. It sounds as the Kearney signing was similar, but you probably know that anyway.;). Also I heard from an ex Kiwi in an unguarded moment drop a hint that Scurrah didn't act alone.

    What was Hart's title? I thought he was football manager. I thought Bell was recruiting, under Hart. Honest question.

    That would be right, Bell was employed long before Hart. That would make sense about what I heard as well. A bit before your time but Hart was never the most popular guy in union as well. Having said that his teaming with Cleary was more successful than we have seen since. Those union coaches are as sharp in recruiting as any Aussie league club.

    Bell first started as team manager if I recall correctly under Kemp. Was an Assistant Coach under Cleary before moving into the office...
