    He is careful with his FOWARDS.

    Go back and see his half dozen bench games in 2018 (King was the main 9) and then apologize.

    why do you single out BA when you know we have a recruitment and retention committee ?

    he's only one voice

    Major scalp? Couldn’t even make Smuggies bench. He’s had one game where he wanted to punch on with JWH and that’s about it

    I think we need to get to a point where these three play a maximum of 60 minutes each. Preferably 50 for Junior and RCG.

    This means we need better players than Stone, Davey, Kaufusi, et all in our Top 17 though.

    It’s a BA signature move, classic Moneyballing Bea Arthur.

    sorry but that really doesn't say anything, well to me anyway

    its just rhetoric

    I haven't noticed anyone putting BA on a pedestal, I think most agree if there was a better option we'd look at him but some of the options being mentioned are simply not up for grabs, in other words, not an option

    some have said he has done OK, but not pedestal material, that I've noticed

    Understand you have a personal dislike for the coach, I can tell you that O'Neil is responsible for the salary cap and player negotiations, BA is part of the committee , so you can spread your distaste around now.

    Dislike for the bloke??

    lol I don’t even know him, I just don’t think he is a coaches arsehole and is now eating into our premiership window.


    7 seasons and there is nothing I have seen from him or his coaching staff that instills any confidence in me that we will ever be a legitimate threat let alone winning a comp.


    So O’Neill is Bea’s new scape goat??? And the BA signature Moneyball special move has been around longer the O’Neill has been here.

    How many old washed up farts has he signed that offered us SFA while young blokes were let go or barely got a run???

    Fa’sao, T Rex, Prichard,and even guys like Gower and De Gois we held onto far too long. And I don’t care who makes the final call but if the club signs a injury riddled bloke like Peats they aren’t serious they truly aren’t. Taking the Titans scraps lol.

    He has one semi final win and even that was a sudden death game against Seibold’s Broncos. He has a terrible semi final record and is channeling Matthew Elliott.

    He can’t coach yet has coached our team yet out of our last 4 seasons has a 4th, 5th and 3rd! Not bad for someone who isn’t a “coaches arsehole”

    He also has coached 4 players to becoming origin quality players!

    Not bad for a bloke who can’t coach :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    He was underwhelming all f**ken year ffs. Merkins making out he choked in the lead up to the finals. Whatever went wrong with him, the cause was early in the year.

    He has the same amount of finals wins as Mary McGregor, and the same amount of hair.

    Moneyball would've meant keeping Davies or persisting with Stone.
