FFS you inferred that Hook had his favourites and therefore the kids were not selected and as a result they we’re demotivated and you asked how do you motivate them under those circumstancesThis thread is now just a bunch of boomers saying that the kids are lazy and that’s why they’re not making first grade.
Maybe the reason that we as a club are completely f**ked is because our board and coach are reflective of this section of our fan base.
So if your scenario is correct and they need motivation to perform then they are the wrong players to have at the club as in your scenario they are choosing not to put in
I brokered a different scenario in that simply out they are not good enough and we have overrated them not out of anything other than hope and frustration.
So IMI and obviously others this is not about Boomers bla bla bla it’s about performance or lack their of.
Simple answer is if you want to play 1st grade be really dominant in reserve grade and be very motivated at training.
