My Grandfather was a Top Gun Salesman and he would divvy up his Commission among the least successful Sales People.My issue is that the club has overpaid for DCE for the past nine years. There was one season to go before his massive salary would have been able to be better distributed. Yet the dumb-ass club extends his contract by a further two years when we all know his footballing powers keep diminishing with age.
I don't blame DCE. Who wouldn't cop the coin? But the club decision-makers don't seem to learn from their mistakes. It makes me question why I invest so much of myself into a club which thinks leadership is a cruise liner.
He thought " Well, these people have families to feed "
He would work hard for 6 months and then spend the other 6 months doing philanthropic work for the less fortunate in Society.
I'm not suggesting that DCE gives his money to lower paid players, that would be crazy.
DCE still provides a great kicking game.
DCE still provides great defence.
DCE still has a great passing game.
What I have been noticing lately is that DCE isn't steering the 'play' in the right direction.
This is obviously a serious problem.
Quite often DCE is driving down a dead end alley.
I'm thinking that Manly need to think seriously about Schuster having more control and DCE playing a lesser role on Schusters' right shoulder.
Manly let Gutherson go many years ago after he'd only played a handful of games.
Do we want the same to happen with Schuster or any other future Star players.??
