Re: Is it time to replace Brett White as attacking coach??

I think the time to question who our coaches should be is after we have done poorly for several seasons and probably not the season following a grand final appearance.

Re: Corey Harawira-Naera reportedly on the Raiders radar

Re: Corey Harawira-Naera reportedly on the Raiders radar

He was 22 when it occurred and a football player to boot, which means he's as dumb as a pallet load of bricks. I don't know how old the girl was but clearly she was above the age of consent. Of course that does not excuse the fact that he did the wrong thing here. He made a massive mistake. Dependin...

Re: Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart calls for NRL to take axe to error-prone bunker

I think the pressure to make quicker decisions has to be involved. Maybe there is a bit of tunnel vision thrown in - looking at certain characteristics without looking at the whole scenario.

They were actually going ok until a few weeks ago. But this same thing happens every season. Start out ok and then the consistency goes out the window. Why is it so? GEs theory on preconceived bias?

Assuming the bunker were vaguely consistent with the rule book and season interpretations (a stretch, but allow me my pretence).

Just as I predicted. The 6-again is consistently applied unless Storm or Roosters are playing - could potentially throw Rabbits in as well. The ruck has been terrible tonight.
