    Well given the different levels of success experienced by different coaches at different clubs, the first thing you should question is whether all clubs are equally capable of success. Michael Maguire won a premiership at Souths yet can't get the Tigers into the finals. Yet Wayne Bennett hasn't...

    Forget about Arthur and apply your logic somewhere less emotional for you. Bennett has a chance to get to a grand final with Souths; a club so strong they won a comp with Maguire as coach, but have failed to do under Wayne Bennett. If they don't win next weekend does that mean it's Bennett's...

    It's not like Arthur's team loses often. Usually less than a dozen times a year. That's less than once a month.

    Because when Bellamy's team loses he could've won if he felt like it?

    Is that Vlade Divacs? I used to love that merkin!

    Plenty of merkins care, I'm just saying randomness is a massive factor and only a useless pissy deadshit would pretend it's somebody's fault. Is Bellamy a shit coach every time his team loses a finals match? If he's the best why does his team lose sometimes?

    I blame Arthur's for overtraining all the merkins at a single position but none of the others. At least he's changing which position to injure each year. That shows he's learning from his mistakes. Before next year's finals he's planning to injure all our front rowers.

    Try assists are a lot easier out wide where the tries are scored. If he didn't play in a team with such a dominant kicker he would no doubt have more TAs from kicks.

    Win or lose it's going to say nothing about either team or coach. It's one game ffs.

    There's a bunch of merkins every year making more tackles than Reed Mahoney. If he can't handle the workload he better not be asking for as much mahoney as them.

    Yeah exactly. The coach isn't the cause of any of that, he is just another symptom.

    Mate you're completely wrong. The better team doesn't always win, just most of the time, and especially when it matters. You don't judge who's the better team by their performance in a single game. You judge them over the full season, because it's a bigger sample. For and against is also more...

    Injury Updates

    An extra twenty minutes of footy a week makes zero difference from a long term fatigue point of view. It's twenty minutes ffs. They spend several hours a week on the training field. The reason they're more chance of getting injured over 80 minutes isn't due to being unable to handle the...

    What are we to learn from the past? That the Storm have a better team than us and we don't want to meet them in the finals? Souths have a better team as well. So do Penrith. Does that mean some merkin needs to get the sack?

    Well he wears six and his defence and running game are his strengths. Is that what you meant? Regarding structure he is usually closer to the middle of the field than our other two (non-hooker) spine players, at least in attack. In defence he plays on the left.

    Well why do you think we've won so many spoons? Arthur's wasn't coach for all of them. Twelve other merkins won spoons at our club as well. They can't all have been as shit as Brad Arthur's. Maybe coaching isn't a magic bullet after all.
