Poor old Braith was squirming with all the talk of booting player managers lol
The merkins should be putting up their conflict of interests.
I can handle ex player biases like Sterlo or Fatty or Blocker when they were talking about Para, Manly or Balmain/Wests Tigers…
However, when you’re on the coaching staff, the board or a player manager, it should always be put up on screen or eliminate conflict of interests. Especially when they crap on about decisions and for example Brandy gets pissy about a refs decision against Penrith.
Someone mentioned about Braith being a player manager. I was sitting with in-laws who had no idea he was one. Most people probably don’t. It certainly affects the conversation.
You can’t eliminate biases but they certainly should be putting it at the bottom of the screen or saying so.
Furthermore, the amount of guys who do radio, newspaper and tv has certainly minimised the diversity of opinion and as such, allows for agendas or rumour/innuendo to go around and around to the point I feel NRL360 feeds off the newspaper reports that they’ve written and they can then just fabricate debate or ire.
The public then buy in to it and the NRL or coaches/players get screwed.
