Sack the coach ?????????? Who made their signings in the close season?
Nalanga is injured and has talent but other than that this is a team with no funds I would think apart from the hand full of forwards like Poc0ck,Sharpe and Hodgson the coach is hardly to blame for the fact he is playing club players in key positions due to injuries and lack of depth of a squad, the Force are no way a force any more, they should look at what the Cheetahs have done if they want to grow!

I have always held Tim Horan in high regard as a player and when he joined the Foxtel commentary team it meant that he Cannon and Kafer outnumbered the numpties, Kearns and Martin and he added value to the team. His attack on the fact the Force had sacked Graham was a piece of very bad journalism as he made no mention of the fact that he had a hand in the negotiations that were going on most of this year. Sorry Tim but you have let yourself down with what is irresponsible journalism. You had a conflict of interest and should have informed your viewers of your involvement. Your name is now tarnished in Western Australia.

Trinats "imagine if we took it seriously"...
Dont come up with excuses for how crap Aus is right now. Your SuperRugby is an absolute laughing stock and no amount of your crappy one-eyed excuses can make up for this.
Its not the rest of the worlds fault you choose to play sports no one else gives two flying hoots about. Unfortunately no one knows/cares what AFL and NRL are. Too bad for you, maybe invest in something better (something the planet knows about ??)
And yes, Australia does take union seriously, clearly shown just last year when they insisted a 5th team be added to SuperRugby. Personally this slot shoulda gone to an Islander team. Whats the point in having 5 crap teams in 1 conference ??

Thus said the Force have either had bad luck with their choices or they just don't pick them well.

how ridiculous to have adverts on the collar of his shirt, he should be sacked for that alone

they couldn't have announced it at the end of the season and avoided all this drama?

Good. I'm glad the Force had the balls to do this. How was he going to put his best effort into the Force after already deciding to leave them and having a cushy job to look forward to? It was a bad move from Graham and I'm glad they kicked him out.
Between Pocock and Sharpe they have enough rugby brains to look after themselves. They certainly play with a lot of courage and confidence - even though they don't have many stars.
I respect the Force even more now.

The right decision he had to be sacked.
