Just 30 more games before the Raiders sack Furner

By johnboy - 11 May 2011 12

The Canberra Times has a piece on bizarre statements made by Raiders board member (and ActewAGL chair) John Mackay on The Beast this morning:

“We regard David as one of our favourite sons,” Mackay said.

“If we had a choice between David and someone who was there to win games and nothing else, we’d have David every time.

“He’d have to lose another 30 games.

Now there’s a culture of failure for you. On the bright side, at least there’s an exit point on the distant horizon now!

What’s Your opinion?

Does this bloke have a brain? Get rid of Mackay and get rid of Furner. Unfortunately its easy to see the future for the Raiders. With this continuous losing streak and poor culture being created due to poor coaching abilities they will again battle to atract quality players and will lose the one they currently have. I’ve been a supporter of the Raiders since their inception and will not attend another one of there games untill the coach is gone. On another note, Broncos suck!

I say we march down to the stadium, all the members, non-members and families and friends and tell them what is what. Fire this idiot and get someone who can actually win a game and do the right thing for the team.

I’m as hopeless as Furner

Well if the Raiders didn’t already have enough trouble attracting sponsors and members then Mackay’s idiotic comment will ensure nobody gives them a second look. Between this latest brain fart and Furner’s equally idiotic swipe at Raiders supporters we’ll be lucky to have a local 1st grade team by end of season.

Newsflash John: Professional coaches exist for the sole purpose of creating a winning culture in a team of professional players, they’re not in the game to play happy families.

It’s called the McIntyre theorum.

It sounds to me like they are talking about the under 12’s coach, not a paid professional.

What a stupid thing to say.

30 more losses. At the current rate Furner has got until round 13 of the 2011 season.
