    Its the exact same problem over and over. Hire a coach that wont be here for key chunks of time. How is this guy supposed to get this done in a year? He will only be here just over a year when they head to Japan. Ridiculous. They need a CEO with a business background as a CEO and Mags and Hodges need to go.

      Mitchell couldn’t get out of here fast enough with this amateur hour sideshow going on. Payne was supposed to be transparent. He won’t talk about PRO Rugby and Chang is invisible. So is this farce of a Congress. Blow it all up and start over but not with Ridnell. He doesn’t do anything but complain and talk about how great he is. Does that guy even coach a kids program? He does nothing.

        I don’t agree with either of you. Gold is moving here. He will have time to put a team together. Lawyers have put a gag order on Payne on Pro.
