I was thinking about the players we are looking at cutting and thinking how they would go as a group with a different coach. This isn’t a sack ba post we already have enough of those but whether…Continue
Like many of you I am really struggling this year. After such a promising start it has well and truly turned into a disaster of a year which is why I am going to share my experience tonight. I'm not…Continue
My mate and I had a good chat on the weekend going over who we have gained and who we got rid off and how it is really starting to look like a much better side and he said surely we will make the 8.…Continue
"There was talk about Flanagan last year but then all went quiet after we made the 8 and top 4. Haven’t heard anything since but interesting, it’s not like parramatta to think ahead, maybe we are finally getting our shit together."
"Interesting bup I was saying the same about how many fullbacks and halves combos we had this year to a couple of mates last night. Understandably ba was trying to spark them but we really should have had that right in the pre season. I think Gutho…"
"I hear ya chief and agree it’s all reaction with no forward planning. I can only assume that the players we are trying to sign are under contract and trying to get a release otherwise they would have been announced. That is a very risky…"
"Ok fair enough and I agree some players need to go but who is replacing him/them, there is not much left that is not under contract and no point replacing one plodder with another, we really need some serious signings, ffs we came last and should be…"
"Whilst I personally don’t like them don’t blame the jersey, it certainly didn’t hurt this team, uncanny how similar it is, Bernie needs to let go he is not at the roosters anymore. For me it was our defence, without defence you…"
"Fair call and I agree that we support players and coaches whilst they are wearing our colours. I have always seen flaws in has coaching and he completely lost me this year but I really do hope your faith is repaid and he delivers next year, happy to…"
"Completely agree poppa. Some fans have tried to be patient and reasonable but it is very evident that ba does not have the answers and is not the answer. No need for name calling etc he is just simply not delivering on what he is being paid to do.…"
"Hindmarsh, come on you can’t be serious. Just because a player played for the club and even played well doesn’t mean they can perform a coaching or management role, classic example last example of a premiership winner Steve sharp as ceo."
"Yep turned it off, disgraceful refereeing and no one can say we are being bias for this game, Panthers we’re doing great to hold them out considering all against them and then they found another 2 penalties until they cracked "
2009 ride to Grand Final
2001 Season, another great ride
1980's but memories starting to fade
Do/have you play footy (If so for who, when, position, etc)?
Unfortunately no, played for school and then played touch and tag.
What changes would you make if you were Eels coach
Select as many players as I can that have excellent anticipation like hindmarsh. It's no coincidence he keeps turning up even if the body is struggling.
What changes would you make if you were Eels CEO?
Back my coach, make it clear to the players that he is the boss and then let him run the show.
Get my fans more involved with their heroes and make their membership the most rewarding in the competition.
Favourite music/movies/tv shows:
Love my movies in particular action movies.
Like different types of music but keep going back to the old 80's hits.

Love my cars, Audi, HSV, Chevy.
