Actually, coaching and player retention was his job. His job was General Manager of Football Operations

Time for Penrith to make it without their dad

How invasive was he? And what are you basing that on?

Can Phil Gould really call his time at Penrith a success?

what 5 year plan? Got a link to it?

Phil Gould reportedly set for Panthers exit in the coming days

Do you know what the 5 year plan was? Or do you just listen to the News Ltd spin about him?

Why do we need 6 commentators for one game? I’ve seen World Cup finals with one commentator, Super Bowls with two but we need 6 duck eggs talking gibberish for a Round 6 game. Pull a drunk out of the crowd, they will add more then Andy Raymond

Eight talking points from NRL Round 6

They don’t have the points in them, and they don’t threaten teams. The fact that they have the least number of errors in the competition isn’t a positive, but just highlights the fact that they don’t try anything, just play simple football. It is reflected on the scoreboard as defences aren’t challenged. This can be put down to poor coaching and the creative players aren’t up to it. It’s not just the halves, they have the least number of dummy half runs. These player will not improve unless they are challenged, you learn be tring and failing, not being a robot

It’s easy to have an 80% completion rate when you just go one out and kick. It’s even easier to defend against. They don’t even attempt to challenge the defense – decoy runs LAST, tackle breaks LAST, linebreaks SECOND LAST

This is the type of football they sacked Hasler for. At least he won games

The Bulldogs won't be wooden spoon winners

LOL, like that “metrix” is credible. Lets start a professional tiddlywinks team and a professional quidditch team and a professional thumb wrestling team to boost those numbers

Melbourne will never be in thrall to rugby league, and that's marvellous

You don’t know what indigenous means. It comes from the latin word meaning native. It is not restricted to people of this land pre-1788

There are zero credible metrics to back up the claim that melbourne is “the sporting capital of the world”

Bad luck. Matt Nicholls gets bored on Good Fridays, so get to work

Time to bring in Good Friday racing, plus five Saturday tips

No. Teams live up to their means. Give them more money and they’ll spend more money

The greatest NRL home ground advantage is in the spreadsheets

Breeding is part of the industry. Owners are doing exactly what you and I would do. Trapeze Artist is getting 90k, The Autumn Sun 70k, risk free, little chance of injury. Trapeze Artist will need to serve just 18 mares to match the winners prize money for the TJ Smith.

Redoutes Choice added more to the local racing industry in his first 2 years in the barn then anything he would have done had he raced on

It’s not the breeders that have stopped breeding the stayers, its the buyers who stopped buying them. I’d rather see a race with the field like this years TJ Smith and last years Everest then watch Count Chivas plodding along beating Skybeau and Joss Sticks in an Adelaide Cup. You have to remember that breeders aren’t just breeding for the Australian industry, but are exported to Asia and South Africa, that is what their buyers want too. New Zealand haven’t gone backwards by breeding sprinters, they have done so because they sell horse to Asia at the first possible oppurtunity

Who will be racing's next champion?

Mystic Journey won’t win another group 1 race

Who will be racing's next champion?

Sunlight won’t do anything more. Won a low-rating Coolmore, beating a couple of non-winners, won a handicap on the limit in another G1 and beat Spright and ellizacoom in another. Well beaten in the TJ and Manikato

Who will be racing's next champion?

I don’t think our author had heard of former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mary Robinson.

Tough questions are lacking in the racing industry

relevant to my comment how?

NRL expansion: The spirit is willing but the flesh is spongy and bruised

A wildly misinformed article. Antitrust laws alone kill your premise, not to mention Title IX. You’ll have to pay members of the football team the same as members of the mens basketball team, and the same as the womens ten pin bowling team

Why it's time to pay college athletes

It’s not an expansion. Brisbane is an exhausted market

Look at the 17 listed for teams this week. There simply isn’t 2 players per club of standard to give up. Super League players are in the Super League because they are not NRL standard

They don’t want to prop up clubs, they have seen the ponzi scheme the AFL are running in western Sydney and the Gold Coast. How much do you think a Fijian team will cost? And what income will they bring in?

NRL expansion: The spirit is willing but the flesh is spongy and bruised

There are not enough players for 16 teams, let alone any more

NRL expansion: The spirit is willing but the flesh is spongy and bruised

Where are these players then? They aren’t playing NRL or NSW Cup or Qld Cup

Longchamp for me.

Flemington isn’t great

US tracks are generally garbage. Santa Anita is the same standard as Gosford

The world's six greatest race courses

I think Murray only goes 1 if Arizona can get the right trade for Rosen. If they don’t I expect OAK to trade up, they have 3 1st rounders they can use as collateral

The first 5 will probably be Murray, Haskins, Bosa, Williams and Allen. It just depends which order. There will be trades to move up. Gray , Sweat and Oliver will definitely go top 10. Denver will waste their pick taking a tall QB

The players to watch at the 2019 NFL Draft

“How can one side be punished so harshly while another isn’t”

Easy, the extent of the crime
