Cam sMyth has missed 402 goals in his career. Let that sink in - it's almost 100 more than his nearest contender.

Cam sMyth is the biggest misser in NRL history.

Yeah, but did you see when he pulled on Simonsson's ears?? Croker's defence is a problem, anyone else think we should leave Joey out of the team?

Wow. That's incredible. Basically Cam Smith is the worst kicker in NRL history. Hard to imagine how he's played so many games

Can somebody make a thread about Smith's kicking?

Actually, don't bother, I'll bring it up in every other thread anyway.

****, get off your high horse pal. I spend hours travelling to and from games regularly. And I have concerns with Croker's kicking.

And, believe it or not, I talk Raiders with many people who do not post on the GH, and Croker's kicking has not gone unnoticed this year. It isn't some conspiracy cooked up by a GH fringe to bring down the captain.

The eye says that his left to right kicking in particular is poor. And the stats back that up. More worrying, he seems to be way off on many of them; as if it is a technical issue.

Why is it such a crime to discuss this on the GH? I like Croker, and while I think his defence can be intermittently questionable; I don't suggest he should be dropped at all, or that he is garbage.

We need a GH Freedom of Discussion about Croker's Kicking Bill.
Woh.....I was referring to Raider Azz.

I completely agree with you. We're on the same high horse!....unless you were also referring to him?
Yeah I was referring to Azz...thought that would have been obvious with the taking exception to the false equivalence between criticising crokers kicking and not going to games.

I think you should tell us more often too. How about regularly bringing it up in totally unrelated threads.

Im preplexed what caused his decline.... he used to be so reliable, but those 2 easy ones he missed tonight were inexcusable, plus his 2/5 effort last week... might be time to give sezer a crack

It's beyond debate at this point - he shouldn't be kicking. Any kicker worth their salt nails the two that he missed.

Jarrod, as co-captain you need to man up and make the decision to step aside here, for the good of the team and a fan base that have been starved for two decades.

We're not going to be changing our kicker 1 game out from the GF, so I'd accept it. We take the kicking duties away from him might actually make his game worse, I still think he's going OK.

It's the same people every time. I'm convinced at this point we could win the grand final 68-0 and they'd be calling for players to be dropped or sacked.

I wonder if the Roosters forum have a "Sack Mitchell" thread going, I mean he was **** diabolical only getting 2 of 6!
Get Stuart to realise he is holding the club back and step down to player manager!
