Was Luke one of the Big Four who last time delayed signing for yonks? Maybe we should also offer a contract to another decent half just in case and see which comes in first.

Pretty sure that I stated it at the time, that amongst others, the worst thing about Farah coming back was always going to be bringing BBF back from the burrow with him. I can cop the other stuff and find some interesting, but his worship of Farah is way beyond ridiculous.

Like a good amount of others, I think Brooks is generally better sans Farah and was probably the form half of the competition for the majority of the season.
Imo - Farah has cost him the Dally-M.
Lol.

If it wasnt for Farah, we'd still be playing Elijah Taylor at hooker and running dead last with Parramatta
Yes but Brooks was playing better - and that was the point.

That may be your most ridiculous comment ever (and that’s saying something!)
That's a bit rich coming from you!

well using the same logic of Russell's it could be said that keeping Farah away so long so Brooks could win the Award cost us a place in the Finals.

Like that time I said that Tui was better than RTS and Ben Barba? Oh wait that was you! But, jokes aside, I think today's comment that Luke Brooks didn't get the the Dally M because Farah joined really does take the cake. Even for you that was absolutely bonkers.

The point is Mate! That this is a Brooks thread - you don't have to make it all about Farah for every thread.

People were, you are included getting stuck into Brooks for not controlling the game - he cannot do that without the ball and seeing that at least 75% of the time the ball is going to Marshall or someone else, the control is in someone else's hands. Wonder who?

I have heard him screaming for the ball many times whilst at games, only to be left high and dry. The point being made was that HE was playing better when he was getting the ball (hence he was getting points in the Dally-M's) - we may well have got into the finals if he had been given more control - it didn't work out the other way - DID IT!

He may still get the Dally-m for half back of the year - has played better than most of them.

And that's fine, I think Brooks has had a really good year. But to suggest his season was thrown off the rails because we got a half decent dummy half is just not true.

Russell, I tried to make peace 3 pages back but then you spurted out with Brooks winning the Dally M except for HRH. Frankly speaking I don't believe Luke will ever control a game whomever may happen to be at DH. Thurston will and HRH a few times a year. But if Luke can do so then I am very happy for him and the team. When HRH retires will I respond to your search party?

Why can't it be true that Brooks and Farah haven't learnt how to play together?
Why can't it be true that Brooks played better this year without Farah in the team?
Does anyone have any stats to show one way or another?

If Brooks won Dally M this year it wld totally diminish the credibility of the award forever!
Hes barely 1st grade standard 3 weeks out of 4,and in the past month or two he been reducing that average!!

If we didnt get ripped off by the refs against Brisbane and managed two more wins we wouldn't be arguing about where we sit now
I hope the boys learn from this years results
Just because we beat the top teams doesn't mean we make the finals
We need to lift more against the lesser teams
If we did that we would be talking about this weeks game

You cant point the finger at a couple of players
Every player in our team missed tackles
dropped balls
And bombed try's
It was a collective effort from the team
It was Brooks best year
Hopefully next year he steps up again along with every other player we have
You make some very valid points CT,Im going to put my arguements forward in regard to Luke and others performances this year purely on CONSISTENCY and the lack of..when I say consisteny we have to go right back to the preseason and go from there...we lost Grub who would have been alongside Luke preparing for the execution of gameplans...Grub fails to start the season and Benji comes in,Luke has a different minder so to speak....Liddle our prospective dh gets injured and fails to play for weeks and the swapping week in week out of dh players unsettles the team organisation...Tui our fullback selection performs poorly after injury and we have to swap Corey to cover the FB spot and MWZ comes in...Packer gets injured and barely reaches his reputation for along time...still the team perform admirably,however the shuffling around and introducing debutants takes its toll,along with some very bad ref calls...

The refs calls were the most damaging taking the wind out of the teams sails,particularly the Broncs game..


Overall the lack of consistentcy in the run on team is what may have contributed to a team being just short of finals footy,they have done well considering and we should accept that they did do well with so many changes week in and week out...
Losing Reynolds was probably the best thing that happened to us
He wasn’t going to win any for us if his recent games were anything to go by,
Whether he was at 6 or 9
A good number for him is closer to 30 :pray:

What is this comment based on? Come on, at least give him a few games before you nail him to a cross!

We all know including Josh that he is not a 9.

Bit harsh to judge him a nothing on a few games at 6.

I thought he played pretty well in the games he did play.

I agree with Russell, Grub played pretty well at 6, just didn't get many games there with Benji and injuries.
