Where on earth would Gutherson get those ideas from otherwise?
”Those ideas” are self evident. It’s why you merkins pissed your knickers from about the 20 minute mark. Would you have become emotional of we were down by six against Melbourne? If you know it was a game we were expected to win why wouldn’t the players know it? Just calling it ‘as important as any other game’ doesn’t change how merkins think about it. Warning against complacency can be counterproductive. Do you think anyone ever got warned about complacency when we played the Storm or Panthers? Pointing out the possibility of complacency reinforces that there’s a good reason for these idiots to be complacent. It’s an individual mentality thing and should improve with experience, but nothing anyone says will fix it. It’s up to the team leaders to go out there and set the example by playing how they normally do, and not taking short cuts against the weaker teams.
Imagine Melbourne or Penrith approaching games with the big game/little game attitude? They just don't.
They surely do or we wouldn’t have beaten them both this year.

The coaching staff are responsible for player attitudes. As posted above, the fact that language was used says it all.

Coaches set expectations. Looks like ours is"close is good enough ".
Everyone is responsible for his own attitude, but leaders should be helping dudes do that by setting the example.
