Well, I think you could certainly examine
Our skills coach
Our defence coach
Our attack coach
The bloke who's supposed to sort out the players mindset/psychology.

The only coaches I'd absolve from blame at the moment is our scrum coaches Rowntree & Jones - but I was expecting them to be a big improvement on JK and actually I think JK did more with less. And it's probably grossly unfair, but I'd point out an entire first choice front row is currently suspended.

And yes, Mark Mapletoft is Head Coach. He bears direct responsibility for the others and their performance.

Not sure I'd include Dippy, he seems out the firing line as Academy and Global Development Director.

And someone is going to tell me that JK is ultimately responsible for all of them and therefore every mistake they make is directly attributable to him. Well I currently work for Vodafone (it won't last!) but were I to accidentally drop a production database for one of the clients, nobody jumps up and down and screams at Vittorio Colao (CEO) about what a poor job he's doing. They'd find me, and possibly my manager responsible!

Yes, but the clients would blame Vodafone, and if other problems were arising the shareholders would hold the CEO responsible. Im sure that a few would absolve him of blame and say it was his people who were the problem, but most would say it was his fault for bringing in the wrong people...
