    Please continue making your silly statements PdV so that you can get fired :cheers:

    Makhenkesi 'motherf****g' Stofile is as big an idiot as P Divvy.

    Why would the Sports minister have any way in PDV fired or not being fired? SA rugby really is in a bad place behind the scenes, at this rate I don't know if they will still be a powerhouse in 10-15 year time, where would they be without Smit and Matfield and PdV calling all the shots ?

    Maybe, but in this instance he makes a point surely?

    PdV: "Boys, boys, hear me out! I just think this would be a great new team uniform for when your out and about on the evenings after the games. You'll have plenty of padding, so if you fall over drunk, or are attacked you'll still be okay. As an added bonus, the team will appear friendlier. What do you say?"

    (Much muttering between the guys)

    Steve's probably ****** that this is the first valid point Stofile has made in his entire political career...

    All of us (SA people) knows that Steve-o, but yes C A Iversen I also think he has a point about this, P Divvy's job is to coach the players and make sure that they are focused on the game ahead and not to sing his whining songs to the media :rolleyes:

    EDIT: actually this is a very good re-enactment of one of PdV's press conferences...

    I don't know why, but I could imagine a pretty funny South Park version of PdV, very similar to their Saddam Hussein, with the whole popping head and voice, lol. I guess it's just the moustache.

    Back to the topic...

    I guess also (and hope strongly) if SA do poorly in the upcoming Tri-Nations comp that PdV might loose his job...?

    It's really just a countdown surely? He'd have to turn into a well-spoken, controlled and impressive coach for a long while to even have a chance. Is that going to happen?

    Not in this life time B) , PdV probably is a "good" coach as in to coach the players, I mean we beat NZ for the 1st time in how many years at the "House of Pain" (sorry to bring that up C A Iversen :p ) & won a Lions series with him in charge but other than that he's just a pain in the butt! :%#%#: :%#%#: :wall:

    I'm not trying to take all credit away from his coaching skills, but I've always noticed that for a while (even upto 2yrs max occasionally) the previous coaches effect is still felt within a team. I'm not sure how much of PdV's success can be attibuted to Jake White. If you remember for the first 2yrs of Mr White, South Africa struggled, but once he'd fully implemented things, well look at the results.

    Yes in my mind the White man is the "White man for the job." :eek:

    Or in other words, "Bring back Jake."
