How can you make 3 year demands on coaches when we clearly do not have the pathways and structures in place to be a probable chance of being as good if not better then the top sides every year?
From what you have said above you put majority responsibility on the coach to bring us a premiership... Any coach with half a brain will not come here if that is the case.
Fittler just picked a side that flogged Qld without Ryan Matterson. I’d say he has some idea.
On top of that, Ryan Matterson was very average in a losing NSW side plus he was injured last weekend. How the f**k would you pick him in the squad for this origin game?
Limited minutes? He played 36 minutes, second most of any NSW bench player and he offered SFA besides a crucial miss that led to a try. He played more minutes than Paulo and the same as RCG. How many minutes do you expect a bench origin rookie (who played in the middle) to play?He was "very" average, off the bench, playing limited minutes.
Injury aside, he didn't deserve to be dropped.
The boys all love BA because there is absolutely no accountability at all with him, unless it’s a young player or a chosen few who have gotten offside with him and were never seen again.I think they love BA because he makes excuses for them and praises them for their defence like in the first half last week when we should’ve been down 30-6. I’m sure he’s a nice bloke and they respect him but that’s not really enough, is it?
If Bellamy coached us I reckon we'd be Premiers for two years running and we'd definitely win the comp this year
Not really that strange.
I have said all along that we need a new coach when BA's contract runs out and I don't agree with his most recent extension, however I also don't believe he will see it out in full. I think he will leave at the end of 2023 by his own accord.
I definitely don't believe we should sack a coach mid-contract when he has constantly got us into the top 8 for the last 3 (probably 4) years. The only other club I recall sacking a coach who had the team in the semis in recent times was Panthers with Hook, but that was to bring Ivan back and keep Nathan happy.
So sacking BA mid-contract would only be because there was someone available who could basically guarantee an improved performance from our team and I would be keen to see the reaction on here if it wasnt the case.
