O'Sullivan Resign's (is paid off)
Well 6 months too late (or 12 months with the benefit of hindsight) and EOS has finally been removed. Already the eulogies have proclaimed Eddie "The most successful Irish coach Ever"(TM) which considering the very low base we are working from here is not saying much. In fact seeing as Eddie didn't win the 6 Nations (let alone the Grand Slam) it would be far more accurate to say "Eddie was the least unsuccessful Irish coach ever". The man deserves nothing but scorn, he squandered the best Irish rugby team ever, he sidelined excellent players, he promoted his favorite players to the detriment of the team, his substitution policy was an insult, he never had a plan B, he was stubborn, controlling and ultimately a failure. Good riddance!
