see you obviously arent following the conversation between me and ink, its INNSANEINK who said a goal kicking % of 80% was "acceptable" standard from NRL goal kickers not me, so i asked him to provide career goal kicking stats of current nrl players who kick over 80% and he couldnt all he could do was post stats from guys whove had 15 or less shots at goal this year.

Like i said if you cant follow a conversation keep your nose out of it

The real and only questions is...

who is our best goal kicker.

If it is Benji, then fine. But if it isn't and he is still taking the kicks for some god-for-saken reason, then we have a reason to be angry.
We wear our heart on our sleeve.

Anybody got the Daily Tele??
Doesnt seem to be online, but in the league liftout today there was a story on leagues forgotten men, the goalkickers.
Darryl Halligan is quoted as saying "80% is now the benchmark...once upon a time you could get away with 70%, but not any more"

This from one of the games best ever kickers.

Edit: also in the same article JT was saying how he's helped Todd carney improve his kicking and that he had an off season to make the adjustments as he was recruited by Easts in November, hes only just come on board with us (reactive - not proactive) and therefore Benjis adjustments are occuring now, but he will improve because "Benji wants to" :|

Let's just cut to the chase....Benji's % conversion rate just isn't good enough....not for any NRL Coach, except ours....
I blame the man who hires....he bought Danilla, Brown,Tupuo.....only one friggin good winger/fullback who could kick 75% ..ie Inu or similiar whould have been a much better buy....

But then you come out with crap like....

difference is, your opinion was filled with holes when asked to provide career goal kicking of stats of current nrl goal kickers who had a %age over 80%. if only 1or 2 nrl goalkickers have a career goal kicking percentage of 80% or better how can that be the standard?

Surely now, after Benji hit the post from right in front, someone HAS to have a word to him about his kicking.

That was a gift 2 points.

You are wrong RON..... it's a problem now and you have no leg to stand on...

Stop making excusses this is 2010....the year of no excusses....

benji kicks them from the side line aswell, hes just had a bad start to the year, lets see where he matches up in round 26 as opposed to round 6.

at this point its not a crisis it hasnt cost us a game and besides the bulldogs game i cant think of another kick where the goal was a certainty that he missed.

Not if you want to play grinding St George Illawarra style football it's not.

that and the 4th & 5th tackle options of our gun playmakers where pathetic...

I mean Robbies kick for Lortay will come off 1 in 20 so he's due next week....
