    I think it's impossible to lay the blame at any single persons feet.

    It was a popular consensus at the time that Cleary/Hart/the-tackle-bots should make way for the Kiwis coach and south Auckland's finest..

    Owen Glen certainly bought into it and probably drove the South Auckland angle, seeing as he was also trying to do some big time charity work in South Auckland at the time as well. I think owning the Warriors fit into his bigger south auckland strategy perfectly (for him that is).

    Scurrah was operation on the same logic that got the club out of trouble in the early 2000s, and was selling Jerseys till the cows came home. So we really needed to let him go instead of Hart. And then have a serious play for a super coach for 2012. That would have been amazing. But the money all got spent on the new Gym for the charity cases...

    I blame OG more than anyone... We're fighting right now to undo his legacy IMO.

    That would have been the back room boys, not just Scurrah. Bell and Iro for starters.

    Yeah that is a good point. It's just a shame what The Warriors have done to it. :(

    Pretty sure the NRL season is longer than 5 rounds.

    Did he qualify his time frame?

    A losing streak of 8 followed by a 1 point win would count as somewhat of an improvement hehe

    Imagine if he said this over the last 5 weeks.:p

    A lot of the changes over the off season would have resulted in the turn around. Maybe some of the changes from the year before taking a bit longer to produce results. Anyway all is forgiven big Jim.
