    Just to counter some of the super coach hype that De$ is being tagged with, its interesting to consider how many coaches in their first year at a club do well. In the last few years the list includes:
    Daniel ANderson (parramatta Grand final first year 2009, sacked the following year)
    Brian Smith (Roosters, 2010 grandfinal, have failed to make the semi's since.
    Ricky Stewart (sharks 2008 - first year Joint minor premiership, failed to make the semi's the following 2 years - resigned mid season)
    Kevin Moore, the man Des replaced (got the Dogs close to the Minor premiership in his first year and then crashed the next two years, sacked mid season).
    Add to that short term coaches like Jason Taylor and Jim Dymock who turned around losing streaks.
    Coaching's a fickle business, and I wouldn't be calling Des a super coach just yet.
    Anyway, just a thought, as the rapid deification of Hasler, good coach that he is, and the gloating of the Sea Beagle fans, is turning my stomach.

    Why do we keep harping on about him? Guys, he's gone! Des, Des, Des!! hate him, blah blah blah!! Just think of the Doggies fans reading this tripe and thinking Manly are a bunch of whingers. Life goes on. We're the premiers and that's that!

    1/10 nice try but without manly Des plays his whole career for Penrith reserves, he owed us a better exit than the dog **** he pulled

    Imagine you owned a panel shop, you hire a kid nobody likes, teach him everything and he goes elsewhere and tells everyone you're a **** merkin to any paper that will listen when he only really left for money that you couldn't afford to give him, that kid is Des and his teacher is the manly-warringah sea eagles, that's why we won't forgive his dog act
