Let me preface this by saying I've had enough of this and intend this to me my last post this season as I go off on a break for a season of NRL. I have been dumbfounded by those criticising Kelly and the Penns. I can only assume you have an agenda when one considers the facts. The Penns effectively had no say in the management of the club whilst the Quantum faction with the football club voted as a bloc. The facts are that had the Penns had the control the following series of events would not have happened and we would be in a different place now to what we are. Had the Penns had control: 1. Des Hasler would not have left the club. 2. Gifty would have been re-signed. 3. Watmough would not have left. 4. DCE would have been allowed to walk just like Hodkinson was allowed to walk. 5. Foran would have been re-signed. We would have brought through another developing half and they would have done a great job. As it stands now the damage was done when they let Hasler go. Had they not dumped Gift we would be good today. My only criticism of Tooves is that he didn't fight hard enough for Gift. He was instructed by the Board to let Gifty go. Most of us would do what our Directors instruct us to do, but I bet Hasler would have fought tooth and Nail and he would have been retained. Penn has had control for what 4 months???? Since then he has brought in a well respect CEO in Kelly, added resources to the football operations and progressed the development of Brookie far more than I imagined. Make no bones about it, Kelly is a great CEO, probably the best in the League. He and Penn have been trying to pick up the pieces, but the truth is that DCE was always going to the highest bidder and Foran was lost due to the departure of Gift and Watmough. There was little they could have done that they didn't do. So to those that are carrying on about the Penns and Kelly, wake up to yourselves and look at the facts. See you in season 2016 when hopefully we only have players here that want to be here.
