You merkins need to listen to this podcast: https://player.fm/series/the-rugby-league-digest/the-parramatta-splurge-with-ben-darwin

Rugby League Digest. You've probably heard of them. This is their latest podcast, about the 1996 Eels and their poor performance. However it's from a facts-driven perspective, and features tighthead analyst Ben Darwin. One of the first topics describes how team cohesion is a quantifiable statistical trait, and how sacking players in response to a loss can make the team worse.

It's very exciting, but also quite interesting. Listen to it, wipe your arse, and then come and discuss it in this thread.

In 1995 the Eels finished 19th, 1996 they finished 13th. That was under Hilditch. Then they changed the coach in 97 to Brian Smith and made the semis.

Changing the coach is never the answer apparently.

You are only doing the same thing if all other variables are also doing the same thing, otherwise the test parameters are no longer valid.

Penrith replaced Hook with Cleary. They went for finished 7th to 1st

But but but but Stability!!!! That’s further proof that if your systems are in place and you are a well run club the coach shouldn’t matter. But but but if we sack Bea we’ll go back to the bad old days 🤣🤣🤣

No. If the club decides to part ways with BA that’s cool. It will be their decision though, not a faction’s.

Big difference.
