Re Brooks…torn a bit.

Yes, absolutely deserved to go. Nine misses, poor kicks, no game management / well down on last year’s form.

VS

Broncs have been beaten all season post covvid return by speedy small men up the guts / pace running at their bigs who tire quickly. Brooks game is more effective against them than any other team.

I think Brooks will be on the bench…

What would be the point of that ?

Chee-Kam can’t cover halves/hooker…not long to wait and see…

Are you benching Brooks or do you think Madge is.

If it is your opinion I’d like to hear the justification as you have defended him, often rightly.

The second part…I don’t agree with it but I think that’s what we’ll see come 4pm…

Ye ole Game manager blaaaaaaaaaaah cliche…

How about we just recruit blokes who run harder and tackle harder than the opposition for 80mins week in week out…

I don’t care who they are…

All the best teams win because they have good game managers though. We struggle to gain momentum after we have lost it and we struggle to put teams away. Both goes down to - guess what - game management.

Rubbish

Tell that to Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk, Mitchell Moses, Josh Hodgson, Nathan Cleary etc etc. all these good teams have guys that kick deep into corners, turn the opposition around, find repeat sets, make the right passes and the right kicks at critical times. That’s game management and that’s something we lack

Of course it’s backed up by those guys who run Hard and tackle hard but you need both, you need your halves taking control of a game.

You only have to look at the recent Storm/Rorters game…it was a mistake-a-thon for most of the game…no one from either team managed that game…what it did have is 2 teams with strike power, speed and desire to turn up for your mate…

Had it been game managed by either team it would never gone to Golden point…

The top teams control a game by the whole TEAM managing the game…not 1 or 2 individuals…

Now look at Manly where I’m told by Coops and the crew that DCE is one of the best ‘game managers’ in the business who haven’t fired a shot since Turbo and Walker went down and just had 30 put on them by the Dragons…

It’s cool tho… Game Management terminology is cute for the younger generation

It’s cute for the younger generation and also all
The elite coaches and players that win premierships but what do I know 🤷🏻♂️ Just gotta run hard like it’d 1970 😂

Your point is right, the whole team needs to hold the ball and do their job and that will take you a long way to winning games. At the same time, guys like smith, Cronk can turn momentum of games by putting in perfect kicks and executing plays right, or they work off the back of their forward doing their job and force repeat sets etc. that’s game management and whether you like
It or not, it’s incredibly important.

There’s been storm games where Cameron Smith pretty much lead their team around all on his own and did all the big plays on his own as well, one example doesn’t mean anything.

Yep, swap Pearce for Cronk and the chooks win 2 titles .

Can Tedesco come with a touch of Cronk…

Phenomenal right!
I don’t know if it is worth biting really.
And to think Sezer would do a better job as a ‘game manager’ is laughable.

What our team desperately needs is support for our half. Be it Brooks, be it Walters. We need a firecracker 5/8 that has the ability to get on the edge of his inside defenders push the line every time, neat little grubber in etc.
Basically Benji 10years ago.
To think Brooks is capable of that on his own alongside a game manager is laughable.
Anyway forwards win games. And ours drop the ball whenever we have good field possession.

Sezer was a good enough game manager to help his team to a grand final last year, he was very good. Brooks in my eyes would be a great 5/8

Disagree. He basically plays as a 5/8 at the moment and is being hammered hard for it.
In my opinion, coaches preferring Left Side, Right Side has killed Brooks.
He has no skill of a 5/8. He has all the skill of a traditional halfback.
The only think letting him down is his involvement.
Get a strike 5/8 and get Brooks (or Madden) in the middle of the field playing a traditional HB role.

He doesn’t really play as a 5/8 because he’s got all the pressure of leading the team around and he can’t handle it. Put a game managing half next to him and just let him do what he does best, run the footy, short passing and short kicking. All a matter of opinion though 👍🏻

Oh that’s simple then lets get DCE the best game manager in the business…(Coops)…we sweet…
