Kev, I guess somebody's going to be right. I will give Barrett until mid next season to make a judgement on him. They do have a fair few players unavailable at the moment and will have JAC and Burton heading their way next year. They at least seem to be moving in a forward direction, as opposed to us who seem to be standing still. Do we have a plan, except for hoping to be rescued by Turbo, waiting for DCE to be off our books at the end of 2023, or hope that a bunch of 18 year olds come good?
I gave Baz a couple of seasons here but he was crap. Still is crap.

Not sure if I only blame Barrett for the horrible Dogs performances, but I will say they seemed more tenacious under Dean Pay, especially defensively...
But with this apparent War chest, I feel he has been way off the mark
Cotric was a great winger at Canberra but got great service inside to give opportunities, now at the unfamiliar centre and its " there have the ball and do ya best"
Flanagan maybe a decent half, but Roosters don't send em packing without reason and besides a few glimpses of talent , looks niggly and not in control
Hetherington though strong and Overly aggressive is a timebomb and good for 3-4 key errors a game
IF they get Burton, is no doubt a top signing, but with every bit of money to spend....I reckon he has missed the mark so far

yeah I agree and know many others who have also said the same about the dogs recruitment. JAC and Burton will be good for them next year. Our defence was atrocious under Barrett. It improved dramatically in 2019 with Des and in early 2020 until the rules changed and we lost turbo.

Talks of Burton doing a DCE on his contract with the dogs.
Hard to blame him for that, what exactly was he thinking in the first place? Would anyone in their right mind leave the black cats for the dogs? No wonder his having second thoughts and can you imagine if it happens, be heaps of fun for him when they take on the dogs.

Can't really see anything out there other than on here about him going cold on the dogs.
