    These results really do say Bellamy is not the ULTIMATE coach.

    Storm have bowed out in the semi final stages on 13 occasions versus just
    2 GF wins

    2/13 is an ugly picture.

    Okay, whatever mental gymnastics you need to convince yourself he isn't a fantastic nurturer of young talent and building club culture

    Very interesting observation...
    May I make another, unrelated one.
    In all the games above we either do not feature or have never beaten them in a finals game.
    Granted 1999 we gifted them the premiership.
    We also have a diabolical club game record against them as well.
    I reckon Bellamy may have lost a number of finals games but is still a genius coach who seems to be getting better and more ruthless with age.

    You left out a very important bit of information. How many years out the last 13 have they missed the semis?
    Also, they played in 7 grand finals in 13 years, even if you take the 2 away for cheating, still 5 grand finals in 13 years, 2 premierships, and 13 straight years of semi final footy....
    But your right, as if anyone would choose that over our success rate over the last 13 years.

    What other current coach has played semi final footy 13 straight years and won 2 premierships?

    This is just Stockholm Syndrome taking place after having Mary as coach so long.

    The '99 grand final was awarded to the Storm by ex News Limited employees, Bill Harrigan and Chris Ward.

    It remains the biggest rort in Australian sporting history.

    Maybe so but Mundine could've taken it out of their hands.
    Tracey screaming for the ball unmarked...you know the rest.

    I guess so, I was just surprised how poorly they have performed once they were in the finals. Having a super coach get them there, I was expecting to see far less final series losses.

    Versus Bennetts record of 7 or 8 grand final wins.

    With the QLD SOO numbers 1, 7 and 9 and many other SOO players in the team, if I was a fan, and having made the finals, I would not be happy with 2 Wins and 13 losses.

    Then finding out we spent more than.one million extra dollars.....well I would be very pissed with that finals record.

    You are right St Jimmy, I was at the ground sitting just behind where we were robbed.

    One of the best tackles in the history of the game.

    If the Storm winger had not have dived low into the tackle, it was a dead set fair hit.

    Watching that game live and watching it replayed 4 or 5 times since, we were a 20 point better team than the Storm that day.

    It was embarrassing how much better than the Storm we actually were.

    Ripped off, storm should hand the trophy back.

    Have to agree. I'd be dirty too if we'd only made the grand final 7 times in 13 years.

    Imagine having to watch the grand final six times in 13 years and your teams not in it? No wonder those jokers in Melbourne watch that other game.

    They have been in the GF 6 times
    in 15 years.

    Missing out 9 times.

    They won it 2 times in 15 years.

    They need to start a sack Bellamy thread.

    Great at getting them to the semis, great at losing once there.

    Good point.

    Mary's only lost one semi, Bellamy's lost heaps more than that.

    Bellamy must be shit.

    Very funny.

    Not comparing the nugget against Bellamy.....obviously way way different.

    Just saying Bellamy is no coaching God.

    If he was...the storm would have won
    6 or thereabouts.

    What the heck are you smoking? Seriously he is the best coach of the modern era. Harry Bath has similar qualities.

    Ouryear please take another puff it will help you
