Forgive the multiple posts, but I do think we are at a point where things need to be debated…
Which brings me to Madge…
The uncompromising style has had one big problem…redemption has always come unearned.
And that is not his entirely his fault…an inherited roster and this complete aberration of a season have caused so many issues.
But basically everyone he has dropped…has come back without earning it or changing.
Benji dropped for poor reads and lack of control… Benji back without doing a thing to improve. Same poor reads / soft tries / seven tackle sets. Nothing achieved.
Every forward dropped has come back without showing anything…Garner about three times for the exact same issues.
We all know Garner will be back next week as there is no one else and he will have to sack someone after a hiding like that. Nothing achieved.
Halves have all been dropped…but they all come back the exact same. Brooks not a single change.
We are at the point where all this undermines Madge. He has had the balls to drop them and to tell people they are not wanted…but there is a real limit on how many times you can drop / yell at a player before no one cares anymore.
If anyone has read my posts before, you’d know I am in Madge’s corner. But it is time to just write off the season and experiment and move forward.
Pick a new spine and tell them they have the last month and half no matter what. Give someone else a shot at goals. Find a new captain. Step back…start to see 2021/2022.
Just don’t keep yelling at them and swapping bad for worse every odd week.
