SCOOP: Unconfirmed reports from Whitten Oval say Rodney Eade has been dumped as coach of the Western Bulldogs.
Now, if the Dogs can only get rid of Number 1 ticketholder Julia Gillard, they will be ready to shine in 2012.
UPDATE: Radio reports say it's true. The man who allowed his team to be riven by personal feuds -- Aker vs everyone, Eagleton vs Lake -- and who blamed his players every time he was outcoached will have to find another job.
Given his general uselessness, we can half expect Gillard to find him a nice, comfy spot at the Department of Climate Change. He will fit perfectly with all those other useless, theory-fixated bastards.
