There is no A.I. Just better computers
The media got the story from Ben Hunt who was interviewed after the Souths game and told them he got a call from Flanno about playing 7 next year, if he got the job.I don’t believe the press. I doubt Flannagan rang Hunt it sounds like BS. He was always looking for a top job and Seibold said from day 1 he wouldn’t stand in his way. IMO it’s Just another media beat up.
I wouldn't worry too much about it, it's just Silvertails. We even had people here who wanted to sack Flanno because he spoke to his son after the Dogs game in Round 1!!There's 24 hours in every day.
Flanno devotes 8-10 of them to assistant coach here.
What he does with the other 14-16 really isn't our concern.
I'm only guessing, but I'm pretty sure he isn't ringing Ben Hunt for a quick chat at 9am while the players are having a weights session.
The problem is you don't want it to be a distraction.
Flanagan contacting Hunt led to questions to Hunt in the media which potentially leads to questions to our players in press calls when their focus should be on a Top 8 finish.
Also, Shifty Shane is already doing Fox commentary across multiple games, add to that player discussions, roster development, appeasing of sponsors, blah blah blah for another team, I really think he'll have little capacity for Manly.
okay so I guess my theory was wrong :')when I watched Sunday night with Matty johns it got bought up and johns hinted that he isn't going anywhere but he quickly shut down any speculation that he knew any inside information, but I had a thought that maybe Cooper knows and is telling his dad
Flanagan can take Parker, Harper, Tualagi and BoyleYes this absolutely feels the same as when Brad Arthur came over here for one season as an assistant coach and left with Foran and Watmough.
I’m actually stunned we did it again. Surely Scott Penn the chairman with all his experience said to Tony Mestrov and Siebs - guys this is a bad idea. I’ve seen this before. I mean Penn has moved on so many coaches - surely he must be a bit more shrewd than to allow this to happen again.
