Dragons legend Matt Cooper skips premiership reunion as bitter feud continues​

Dragons legend Matt Cooper has skipped the club's 2010 premiership reunion, citing the presence of former CEO Peter Doust as the major reason for his absence.

Due to COVID restrictions in the past two years, St George Illawarra postponed their 10-year reunion celebrations until this past week and plenty of the heroes from the side were in attendance.

The likes of Brett Morris, Jason Nightingale and Jamie Soward all turned up for the occasion, while Rabbitohs assistant Ben Hornby and legendary coach Wayne Bennett also took part in the festivities.
Cooper took to social media on Saturday to explain his decision to skip the event, which came down the attendance of two people - Doust and an unnamed former player.


I want to apologise to my 2010 premiership team for not attending the 10-12year reunion. The reason why I did not attend, was I didn’t want to make a scene and ruin a special occasion! Knowing former CEO and a player who did not even play in the game were going to be there.

I can see a lot of people are wondering why I sent that tweet, it was my only way to let the players know why I wasn’t there. With the why,it has to do with what happened to me when I retired, I’m not ready to share that right now, but the truth will come out next year.
— Matt Cooper (@mattcooper44) December 3, 2022

But one man that was missing was Cooper, who has been at odds with the Dragons since his retirement back in 2013 and has been vocal about his disappointment in the club's poor performances in recent years

Cooper also replied to a fan on Twitter and said 'if only you knew what Doust did to me' when questioned on why he missed the event.

While the details regarding Cooper's feud with the Dragons and Doust in particular are scarce, the belief is that the former NSW and Australian centre was promised a job with the Red V that the club never followed through with.

Cooper was one of St George Illawarra's best players of the modern era, scoring 125 tries in 244 games for the club.

The 43-year-old also played 13 State of Origin games for the Blues and seven Tests for the Kangaroos, and is regarded as one of the game's best defensive centres.

I read this story over the weekend and whilst there was plenty of the usual fanboy responses like “feed them bruh”(as the kids say today) etc,there were many that were questioning him as to why he decided “not make a scene”as he said,yet aired his grievances on social media.There was also many asking why he didn’t be the bigger man and went to celebrate with his other teammates.Cooper has had a chip on his shoulder for a few years now and not just on Dragon matters

sounds like a book release in the making
He’s spoken either today or over the weekend and has said he’ll spill the beans next year,once the footy kicks off and all the shows start up again,to gain maximum exposure.Apparently it’s over a job he was allegedly guaranteed once he retired in 2013.

Why has it taken him 10 years to spill his beans ?

There is off course two sides to every lovers quarrel

I beg your pardon

Sounds like some salary cap stuff as well...potentially

Hey It's a relief that all this crappy bitchy in-fighting is happening somewhere else for a change instead of Manly
Also isnt it quite peaceful in the press lately, there ihas been no bad news stories on Manly for a change - has Buzz Rothfield gone on holidays
Cheers

Buzz and a few other media types,have mates on the coaching staff now,in Flanagan and Seibold.It’s why Des should have been more open or transparent with the media rather than giving them nothing

I do not think that theory of yours is correct feathered friend
The fact is

When sht was happening with Seibold at the broncos and Flanagan at the sharks no media mates saved them from the front page dramatic stories

Another fact is The piranha press go on a frenzy when opportunity strikes

…. Or forgive and forget!

Just sayin’
Well said feathered friend

There is no point in hanging on to the bitter ghosts of the past

Because if you do . You end up sleeping with those bitter ghosts that keep you from enjoying a peaceful sleep every night

There is a great saying ,
FORGIVE THE FCKERS
NOT BECAUSE THEY DESERVE IT
BUT BECAUSE YOU DESERVE PEACE IN YOUR SOUL

There is no more beautiful place to be in than inner peace
and you do not have to live in the most exotic place to experience this
You can only experience this in your inner self

What a poor example.When the most powerful club in the comp is struggling and heading towards an inexcusable wooden spoon,in the Broncos,and when a club has been running an organised drug regime,salary cap breaches and a coach breaking rules that were enforced upon him,no chance of hiding such stories away from the front page.

That was a great example to what happens when Great drama is exposed from a club
The piranha press go on a feeding frenzy and no media mates are around to save them

If you do something seismically stupid ie wooden spoon and drug regime,of course you’re not safe from the media

I agree with you feathered friend .

If Seibold ever wins a wooden spoon at Manly

No one will save him and he would need 24/ 7 security escort for life

Well may we say God Save The King because if Seibold ever wins a Manly wooden spoon nothing will save him .
