    I am fast getting quite turned off Silvertails by this sort of attitude. The Forum has become combative and there seems to be one poster that is always in the thick of it. I hardly ever post these days for that reason. I even PM'd one of the combative posters on here to try to reset and alter any misunderstandings and get things somewhere towards a civil discussion but that went unanswered, which with the benefit of hindsight I should not have been surprised by.

    I have been reluctant to use the ignore button because it really doesn't work when posts appear that a replying to some aggressive condescending post and it is just easier not to.

    This off season is the worst I can recall in my years on this Board.

    Edit: Have a great weekend all, I'm off to pickup my new Mustang and head for the Great Ocean Road for a bit of a road trip.

      No ... possibly you have actually taken the time to read what I have written rather than what you think I have written ....

        I am not sure what planet you live on,but you seem happy.If you think I over reacted then that is how you choose to take it.You were intending to mock Snake and if you refuse to accept that,then you are probably telling porkies.Telling me that I might die of a heart attack and then not thinking I would respond in kind......(you get what you give Bozo)Anyway,we were going back and forth and then out of the blue you try to introduce something you said to another person as part of our conversation,it is a little like arguing whether the weather is hot or cold today in Sydney and then saying that it is hot in Lebanon today,therefore it is hot today to back up your argument.I love a lot of your input and your passion Bozo,but trying to have a discussion with you is like playing chess with a pigeon....

          The first sentence of this post, regarding long winded self justifying statements that ultimately cause the writer to miss the point... is a very good one.

              Guys, can I just reconfirm something about my stance on the coaching situation (not that it really means anything hehehe).

              * I think I might be misconstruing my stance a little.

              Personally, I feel we've gone from a beaten up 2016 Datsun 120B(arrett), back to a classic 2011 Bentley Twin Turbo V12 HybriD(es) in Des.

              The upgrade is outstanding. I'm seriously over the moon. Barrett annoyed and frustrated the heck out of me.

              The caoching staff, the support staff, the CEO, all the club's infrastructure is looking so much better.

              The legacy Barrett has left behind talent wise (especially in our backline is pretty Teflon).

              The reason I shelled out another half a grand plus for my season ticket is that I'm really excited and plugged in, something I wasn't when Barrett and his chronies were here.

                But if as you say 'let's keep on topic' why bring Des into it?
                I will point out again Des was a gold plated Winner with us and the Bullfrogs for a time. I see no justification in comparing a winner's use of the bench to a loosers use of the bench. If TB had not used his bench properly and had a winning record then good for him. He didn't so he was pushed to the side.

                Finally you wrote

                ' and I wonder how bright some of you are ' your Honour I rest my case.

                        I need to stop opening these threads with the expectation that a page and a half of new posts might actually contain something on topic and worth reading.

                        If all you people have to do on here is talk about irrelevant crap and attack each other you need to develop a more well rounded personal life.

                          I found Snakes post funny and I reacted in that way. What was so funny ? His quote that Trent has a lot to offer . That is the way I saw it and reacted and you over reacted as far as I am concerned . Why ? This is why ....
                          There is a thing called perception and you took it upon to see your self as a guru on reading peoples minds .
                          As far as playing chess with a pigeon you are referring to the wrong guy because I am a Sea eagle every day of the week !
                          Trent has a lot to offer ? Bloody hilarious and I still cant help from laughing LOL .
                          If you @Smokin Joe also think Trent still has a lot to offer your very very funny as well !

                          The funny thing is that some one here think he has a lot to offer and when you tell them how ridiculous and funny this is they get offended .

                          Professional front office Woodsie ? Our board and office was a busket case when Des won comps .
                          At its peak of turmoil it was quoted as the most dysfunctional in Australian sport !
                          Unlike Trent, Des did not use this as a distraction or excuse .

                          I agree Des was smart enough to surround him self with quality people unlike Trent who disengage him self from the one and only Incomparable Immortal . Now that was dumb.
                          Very dumb and it is known that this was his down fall as he was lost on his own and his solo last disastrous year vindicated this

                          As far as the rotation of the bench goes when you are winning games as Des did there is less incentive to use the bench as far as Trent goes when you are losing games there is more incentive to use the bench and add and create some direction. Direction was not part of Trents repertoire but only excuses was


                          Every way you look at him . Trent was a failure. To the few that think other wise this is laughable !

                            Good post feathered friend . At the end of the day all of us are happier when Manly are winning and I am sure Des will put back the smile on our faces .

                            I say Engage ! Expression is what makes a forum great . Once we lose the right to express our views the forum becomes predictable it loses character, eliminates its passion and becomes boring .
                            Go for it !

                            But, then again, Woodsie might ask how many premierships had Des won after 3 years? (for the record, I don't rate Barrett either...sorry Woodsie).

                              Smokin' Joe, don't even bother. You don't even get a 'feathered friend' at the end these days...
