  1. This is one enforcer who knows Bennett’s use by date is well and truly up after they bombed the 2015 grand final five seasons ago. Maguire walked away from “Bennett’s Pony club“. While Bennett has been sacked by Brisbane and England. Souths transit.lounge have purchased the sacked dud on past reputation.

  2. AH McGuire left the same time Bennett did no connection.
    I would say Bennett has achieved more in his chosen field then you have or ever will.

  3. Your wrong there Sid about Maguire.
    I recall he left months early in the off season for the Cowboys, before Bennett and his drawn out departure/sacking towards the end of the off season to eventually sign with Soufths.

  4. Mark.ofManywords thanks again for butting in on AH’s behalf. Are you the same person?
    Really being incorrect about the timing is irrelevant. The connection between Maguire leaving, the 2015 grand final lose and Bennett is ludicrous. I actual think Bennett would have told Maguire he would not be resigned but this is all history.
    That is my opinion and while I respect yours or AH’s I just don’t agree.

  5. As far as I’m aware Sidney I was not Mark when I woke up this morning.

    But I do know there was a tiff between the enforcer and the old timer. The Cowboys we’re pursuing Maguire throughout the entire 2018 season. They both left in the off season of 2018.

  6. Matter of fact Sidney Maguire announced his signing with the Cows on the 19th of Nov 2018 whilst it was reported was sacked by Brisbane 2 weeks later on the 2nd Dec 2018.

    Looks like you need to get your facts right Sidney.

  8. AH wonderful to hear from you.
    I checked the date out before my post. I know the time line. As said before your connection between the 2015 GF lose, Magurie signing with the cows and bennett leaving is ludicrous. My opinion and yours are different. You have just tried to bag someone who you would never even come close emulating.
    You could educate yourself and look up objective versus subjective data and opinions.
    Looks like you need to get educated Adam.

  9. Sorry AH maybe you need the definition of emulating!
    “match or surpass (a person or achievement), typically by imitation”

  10. Get your hand off it Sidney, Adam is stating a fact that Bennetts enforcer dropped Bennett and Brisbane to sign with NQ a couple of weeks before the dud Bennett was fired for being incompetent.

    Remember Saints gave Bennetts Broncos a hiding in the semis and they wanted the dud coach gone. His use by date was up after he lost his first grand final in 2015. When he did not instruct His players to ho for more points, instead allowing them to continually wind the clock down by kicking over the side line forcing scrums.

    Sid you clown, Adam is only stating historical facts, but you go off the rails at him trying to be a big worded posharse nobb and try to turn the tables on him with irrelevant rot about Bennett achieving more than Adam in Rugby League.
    Bennett has acheived more than everyone on this site but that does not change a fans perspective on his footy. Most footy fans have better knowledge than the so called experts. Look how wrong Andrew Johns is ALL the time with his calls and predictions.

  11. Oh MarkofManyWords wipe your chin you are dribbling.
    Calling me names and having a rant, too funny. Bit childish.
    Sorry don’t agree with your dribble.
