Brilliant article....I think we all know he'll still be there this time next year though. Sadly.

First Tindall, now Johnson. Both are sacrificial pawns in the game of keeping Andrew in place at the RFU. In the approximate words of Henry II "will nobody rid us of this troublesome inadequate?" - not that I am suggesting an assassination!

Andrew is well past his sell by date and should do the honourable thing. Resign.

Wow, this is why we post on comments sections and Forums and Mr While gets to write for a living. Eloquently put and a summation of many fans' frustration with the current situation at Twickenham.
We seem to be hell bent on harming the better characters in these situations. Few could question the passion and knowledge of Andy Robinson and he was unfortunate to inherit a team in a massive overhaul. Punted. The man who stepped in and helped steer England to a world cup final (regardless of the ins and outs of the campaign), Brian Ashton manages to stay dignified and reserved when he is quite simply stabbed in the back in order to pace the way for Johnno. Now the man himself, under the scrutiny of at least three seperate reviews, has gone "to the gallows with dignity". All the while, Teflon Andrew and the Powers-that-never-have-been sneer and fight from their perch on mount Twickenham.
Please, please, please rid us of these old farts and bring some professionalism to the governing body of my country's Rugby Council!!!

Absolutely unjustified criticism of one of the great administrators of the game. We need more of sort not less. Up with him I say!

Teflon-coated slime-ball, who'll let anyone else take a hit rather than himself.
For a man who I used to respect as a player, I have none for him now. Whilst I'll accept an argument that MJ should have gone (although I, personally, think he should have stayed), RA should fall on his sword and resign.
He typifies the issues with the RFU at the moment - too many people worrying about their own future, rather than the future of English Rugby.
