    The players gave up. Not Sticky's fault.

    Half of them won't be playing first grade for us next year, so the coach doesn't have any leverage with them.

    There is not a single coach in the world in any sport that would have had this team successful this year (by successful I mean above a bottom 2 side) if you honestly think Ricky is the blame for this year I'd hate to think what you thought of SK. Probably thought he was the best thing to ever happen to this club.

    If Stuart goes the only person to immediately make an impact is Brian Smith. Full stop, end of discussion. Only him. I'd be calling him tonight.

    name me one player that has improved his game under Stuart.

    It is not about the results as such, it is the players who have become bloody worse a splayers - uou could make an argument that the same players under kearney last year were playing a lot better - our player development has gone backwards - and a good coach would not have us in the position we are in now.

    Just a reminder - this thread started as a result of rumours that Stuart may be going elsewhere, not rumours that we are sacking him.

    This is important context that anyone reading your post should consider.

    Brian smith is a great coach hey?
    Remember that gun junior we had that was screaming to be picked and he refused to pick him. Step up JT who picked him straight away. The juniors name is Jarryd Hayne, some might know him. The rest is history.

    That means shit. So what ? You reckon Hayne wouldn't have played eventually under Smith. Let me tell you something, Smith is only number 2 behind Jack Gibson as the best coach we have ever had. Ever. Smith is twice the coach that Stuart is. I don't care about his premiership with a virtual Australain team. Stuart is a myth. This team has gone backwards under Stuart. It's Stuart's fault.

    Terepo, Kelepi, Sio, lussick.

    Kearney is a huge reason we are so shit this year. But you fail to blame him for that.
    Look past your hatred for Ricky and look at the full picture.

    As I said earlier name me a coach who could have avoided a bottom spot this year?

    Smith couldn't see one of the best talents to come out of our club.
    He scared the shit out of our players before the 01 gf and the 05 semi.
    You can honestly tell me SK isn't at fault for this mess?

    He is but Stuart has made the team even worse. He has not improved them one bit. In any other sport in the world he would already be out on his ear. However we are asked to be patient. Nobody expected the premiership but nobody expected the spoon either. We have it with two rounds to spare and Stuart is fully accountable.

    How accountable should the players be in your opinion?

    Yep. And Morgan, Mannah and (strangely) Keating.
    People knocking Stuart's coaching ability based on this year`s results are being very reactive. I don't blame them, because it's been a very frustrating few years for us. But I'm dead certain that Stuart's recruitment has been spot-on; and that we will improve drastically next year.
    Chin up, lads.

    Very accountable but what's happened with them? Why aren't they tackling? Why is there no urgency? Why does Stuart keep picking them?

    Well Stuart had the chance to knock the Raiders rumuors on the head with the press conference. He said "no" when asked had he had contact with the Raiders, but he didnt give you confidence that he was committed to Parra for next year.

    I dont think I expect him to be here next year now.

    The answers to your first three questions need to come from the players themselves.

    I suspect the answer to your last question is something like "because we don't have any other f**king genuine first graders to choose from".
