Two of the top 3 have tipped Souths. The smart ones know who's going to win.
Assumptions require evidence. The difference is that assumption-based planning recognises that the available evidence might not accurately reflect reality. Like the opposite of the turkey whose confidence increases daily that the farmer is just a top bloke who does nothing but bring it food.Why not try evidence-based planning? It's fun.
Precisely. Bookies don't like to lose money. They offer odds that are always in their favour no matter who wins or loses.
Unless the paper isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.Don't worry too much about form. It can turn around in an instant. Best metric is to compare the teams on paper. There's no guarantees, but the better team (on paper) is usually the better team on the day.
It's not about whether their coaching decisions are right or wrong, it's about probability and risk. Every decision they make could go either way. It's about getting more successes than failures over a given timeline. If something goes wrong it's not that the coach didn't know it could go wrong. The alternative decisions also could've failed, maybe worse. And after the fact smartarse fans with no skin in the game pretend they know better.
I dont understand the crazy perception on this game. We've played 2 bad games all year.
Souths have conceded in the last 4 weeks more points than we conceded in the first 10.
It amazes me that we are strong outsiders with the betting agencies. Even Daley on the Matty Johns Show who gives the tab odds said it should be the other way around.
We've only started 2 games this season prior to this as outsiders - Storm and Canberra - and we won both.
If we trusted Pou we'd still have Mannah and Alvaro as our starting props, based on his stats amongst the best in the game.Well tell them that Pou says that they are all wrong and that he believes that it is actually the entire teams fault, not Waqa's. They are the ones that are letting Waqa down by their inability to make his tackles for him. If they don't get their collective sh*t together this week, he will recommend BA drops all of them to NSW cup and give some new young blood a go.
In Pou we trust.
