There will always be a vocal minority on here that just will alway put crap on him no matter what he does.

He has a record number tries scored for his posi in WT.

Can someone tell me why Brooksy is $1.45 favourite to win halfback of the year?

He's been in the leading group for Dally M player of the year all year and it's hardly been a vintage year for halfbacks.

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!!
That statement about foolishness is doing the same experiment over and over again and expecting a different result comes to mind - that game when Luke kicked about 5 consecutive grubbers in the same position to the same line up all getting the same failure.

But seeing that someone brought up stats for Luke lets go a bit more into it.

Luke scored the most points in a year when Farah was playing with the team - Luke's lowest was 2017 17 points when His Royal Highness was nowhere near the place so presumably he was getting balls coming out of his ears. His highest points for a season was when Robbie last played a full year in 2015 for 40 points. When Robbie was in trouble with JT for stifling the attack of the halves. Play that again Sam.

The big question is can Luke match Robbie's record for most tries in league history for his position - I hope so coz it is better for WT as well.

Luke's tackling efficiency is 73% and Robbie's is 94%. I don't think JT was a good influence in the tackling dept.

True Yoss, all the usual suspects have been down on form, Thurston, Cronk, Johnson, Cherry Evans, Reynolds, Taylor, Pearce was going great but missed about 10 weeks with injury so he is out, Hunt crashed and burned after origin 1 and Cleary has been relatively quiet since origin also.
Seizer, Marshall-King, Nikorima, and Moses are not going to win, Townsend has been ok, the storm have used 3 halfbacks, there is no one else standing.

Cory Oates made it ,and admittedly he he can run,
But he’s good for dropped balls and mistakes in every game that he plays , that’s why so many teams kick to him in most games
So if he can make it , anyone can.
And Valentine Holmes on the bench?? What drugs were the Twits on at Twitter when this Poll was taken.

Other people just see it different to you.
From NRL.com 2018 Brooks was named in NRL.com Team of the Year.
Voted by teammates as NRL Players' Player of the Year — Luke Brooks
NRL Player of the Year (Kelly-Barnes Award) — Luke Brooks

You have put crap on him all year. Even at the end of the regular season you are still trying to find ways to cheapen any achievement he has made, someway or other you will put a stain on it.

That is a load of crap, I have praised Brooks when he has done well, and I have not put crap on him all year as you say, I have said, and I stand by it, Brooks has no or very little game management skills, and tell me another halfback who played well this year, there is no one.

Come on, own your opinions. Every time there is an opportunity to hammer Brooks there’s you, snake and cqtiger (or ck).

Any praise is begrudging and along the lines of good today, but as I have pointed out for the last 4 years generally crap.

Who would you suggest we sign on a similar contract, and what do you think other clubs would pay for Brooks

I do own my opinion, I would have let Brooks go 2 years ago, he didn't progress, he has no game management skill, we have payed a stack of money for bugger all return in the last 5 years, but I have said many times now we have invested to heavily and now have to keep him. We either hope Grub is a game manager or we buy one, have said quite a few times.
Also stand by my opinion no other halfback has played well this year for any great length of time, be it form or injury, so therefore other halfbacks wouldn't have polled to well.
I have bagged Benji, Sue, Aloiai quite regularly too, because I am a supporter who wants a team to support that tries and does not do dumb things, and can get us to the finals, so when I see it I call it, I have never shied away from my comments.

If we can get some of our other players playing to the same level of consistency as Brooks we should be in for a good 2019

He is certainly a first grade half, however, he has no idea how to manage a team around the park. He certainly has no idea how to close out a game.
