    That's what I heard too....a Ledman decision despite him wanting to see it through. NBN very much on Ernie's side.

    Sad watching the report on Fox as they went through all the names we had less than two years ago....Nabbout, Dimi, Vargas, Roy, George, Joey C, McGree. We had a good base side and let it slip.

    So if this is a ledman decision I wonder what support Ernie got from the gypo. Seems strange to sack him and pay him out when there is no money for any players and cost cutting everywhere. Was thinking that maybe Ernie was jumping ship before we sink even further, but those reports maybe say thats not the case. Could easily see this being another firing due to challenging the boss along the lines of Miller, surely Ernie was reaching breaking point on player funds and I wonder if he snapped and called them out on it.

    Our Gypo CEO cited many points to Ernie's justified departure but at no stage did he mention the pitiful budget Ernie had to work with and to make matters worse when club personnel departed and long term injuries hit ie Wes no funds were forthcoming to fill those gaps.

    Ernie's departure reflects just as poorly on our Gypo CEO and our owner, They are both just as culpable in this abortion of a season.
