    Is trumpet a euphemism?
    Or is blowing?

    Either he can't coach, or coaching is meaningless in any given game.

    Mal Meninga is the most successful coach in Origin history, while Bellamy is the most successful at club level. But does that mean either if them are the best? I doubt it. Although I'm certain Bellamy is very very good.

    They were so scared that they went back to Yugoslavia.

    I've no doubt that Bellany is very, very good.

    But for me, he will always have question marks hanging over his head, because he has built a career at a club where Smith, Cronk, and Slater spent their entire careers.

    How good a coach would he be at Parramatta? Or the Titans?

    Bellamy created Smith billy and Slater. Smith wasn't even wanted at the broncs. You can't say Bellamy didn't have a major role in their development. Are you saying he was hit in the arse by a massive rainbow.

    Can some one enlighten me as to the meaning of mental toughness, or mentally weak ?

    Personally I believe its one of the most overused rhetoric that gets dragged out when a team loses, but I would love some one to enlighten me.

    Sure.

    But once Smith, in particular, developed into the player he is today, it undoubtedly helped the Storm.

    I think Bellamy is a great coach, but until he helps rebuild a club with less advantages...

    Those three players were already contracted to the Storm when Bellamy became coach. He even said the club knew they had a bunch of future Origin players on their hands. And Smith debuted at 18 when Mark Murray was still coach of the Storm.

    Anyone who debuts in the NRL as a teenager was known and wanted by every other club's scouts, probably since he was about 13 or 14. 'Unwanted by X club' just means that club offered less for a schoolkid than the club he signed for.

    So our good recruitment is because BA has limited say in it now, yet when a development coach leaves it’s because of BA......

    Agreed. Mark Digby is a great coach.

    I used to have a dog called Digby.
    Didn't have the best ball skills though.

    He's not as good as Digby Flanagan. Or Craig Digby
