Good work Gruff, it says 34 more needed, surely they will sign up now. What happens at 100?

It's got to the point where the club can't afford not to sack MC. Aside from all the coaching oddities (weird subs, playing some for too long and others not enough, no structured offense, soft defence, no connection with the fans etc etc), keeping him after consecutive losses to the bottom team whilst having a talented lineup sends a message that these kinds of performances are ok, that the club accepts these failures and perpetuates them by taking no action. This is an insult to the supporters and to the storied history of our club. I'd rather almost anyone coach the team at the moment rather than the current coach as at least the change would indicate faith in the team and restore hope to the fans. Experience would be great but we may not be able to afford a Wright. A rookie with common sense would be an upgrade on the current situation.

At 100 the club are emailed about the petition. Every signature after that also updates the club of the numbers on the petition....I think...I got confused ;)

It is definitely time for a shake up now, Adelaide lacks severly in the effort areas, there defense lacks and daniel johnson has been sleep walking the past few weeks. Its time for a big change, Martys subs are ridiculous and Im not sure what hes running but it doesnt play to our players strengths. hows about drop marty, bring in joyce and get a worthy import. case closed

So Marty's bad coaching had them shoot 36%?

Had their All star boomer point guard go 2/16?

Players are just as responsible for our bad record.

Marty has been very inconsistent in his coaching and rotations, however I think last nights game was more than just him.

Bring in Joyce you must be kidding you sure as hell don't know anything about him you will end up having 2 point guards playing big minutes and not a lick of defense. Wright would be the best option

Anon' 572...exactly...

Where is the sack Gibbo thread, sack Cadee thread?

Players are allowed to have sh!t games and make mistakes as long as Marty is there to be the punching bag.

Camby: no guard should be shooting a low percentage with Schenscher down low. They aren't using him correctly and as a result the guards don't get nearly as many good looks as they did when he played in Townsville.

Whose fault is that?

Schensh catching is suspect, he cannot hold his position against smaller players.

However...when he does get the ball, he holds it for too long and players CBF cutting for him.

The coach is not on the court.

The players need to follow the coaches directions.

There are always calls for sacking coaches why not sack a few more players that are not following game plans.

It is not always the coaches fault .So many good coaches have been sacked because of so many individuals playing a team sport.

Look at the players first.

Its the nature of the beast. He selected the players, and over a consistant period now, this supreme roster has failed at critical hurdles. If Gibbo shot 2/16 every week by all means he would be targeted, but he doesnt does he. Yet Clarke performs poorly with his in game decisions every game, hence the anger and targerting he is recieveing. Its justified, if you dont think, your dellusional.

Its gone on long enough, too many weapons and exciting players on this team to fail. Now with the sad situation of Creek, and an import spot open... 6ers need to take this season in a new direction, with a new coach and assistant (i think radford is more moronic than Clarke in many ways imo), and a new exciting dominant style import. Things can still turn out special in 12/13, but it wont happen the way things are.

Who are you going to sack when marty's replacement fails, maybe the players are duds too

Mick.You are not watching, Luke is no longer drawing a double team. Easy to be a good passer out of post when there is always an open man. When he starts
putting points on the board the floor will open up again.Remember Marty saying he will score 50 if not double teamed. He said that for a reason. Make Luke play one on one and he struggles.
