    So is this bumbling excuse for a NRL club going to finally do something smart and agressively go after Hasler?

    If we want the "is it the players or is it the coach" question that follows pretty much every season answered, we actually need to hire a quality coach to prove one way or the other...we cant keep hireing pathetic coaches who've never won a damn thing, and then turn around and say it's not the coaches fault when yet another appalling season comes to an end.

    I don't know about Hasler with the Warriors culture thing. He will be just as structured as Kearney and used to Aussies who know the systems. Ivan Cleary was the safer option. Kearney has turned out to be another Jim Doyle gamble.

    Hasler is a tool also guys, got given the punt from the dogs for a reason - we would just end up getting Foran back

    In theory it should be a no brainer, but the fact we have been through so many coaches recently means we will stick with Kearney for the next season.

    The fact that we are probably going to be favourite for the spoon next year and Kearney is signing over the hill veterans and journeymen on long term contracts would make this a tough sell to Hasler.

    I'd like Hasler to come but unfortunately can't keep churning through coaches and continuously rebuilding

    Des is an expert at stitching up the incoming coach.

    Coaches contracts are not covered by the NRL. They can invite him to take them to Court, which will cost a lot of time and money, so he might consider settling for less. Smart idea unless you ever want to attract a high flier again.

    Contract is a contract. Even verbal ones are enforceable.

    Even the dogs board claimed he had signed for 2 more years

    Yes they are enforceable, but one has to go to Court to get it enforced. That will take time and money. It looks to me as though they are trying to get him to settle for a lower figure, or they know he has something lined up. He would be better to find another job.

    Big time barrister will do it for exposure and costs from settlement, Des will do it on principle. He'll get paid and another job.

    Dogs say they owe him nothing. Des's management say 1 mil plus. It will be sorted before it even gets to court.
    Somewhere in the middle

    That's right, he would be lucky to get half from the settlement, and I mean lucky. The dumb arses are the dogs board. What decent coach is going to sign up with them knowing they refused to pay Hasler?

    I wonder if we're going to see a straight swap...McGuire to the Bulldogs and Dez to the Rabbits.
    The Bunnies would have to be an easier and smarter move for Hasler, which is why he needs to be given an offer he can't refuse if we want to drag him over the ditch.

    Whatever we think of Ray Dib and the board the Canterbury Football Club/Leagues club are very successful. I'm sure they would have got some pretty sound legal advice before punting Des. I mean its not as though they would have been sitting around munching on a kebab and suddenly thought lets get rid of Des. Des will get a payout of some description the question is how much. You mentioned the potential issue of what coach would what want to go there, I would imagine the same would apply for decent players. ( Foran and Sharon not included)

    I hear you.

    I also hear they have seriously overspent their salary cap and resigned a coach for two years only to sack him before his extension began. JD might be full of bullshit but he doesn't seem that stupid.

    The only credit I can give them is they might realise they have cocked up and are taking their medicine now.

    Des is getting the blame for the overspend on the cap. The word is when he originally signed with them 6 years ago part of this demands were that he got the keys to the kingdom

    That would be right, just ask Graham Lowe who had to handle the guy at Manly.
