100% agree with you mate. I was at the Penrith game and thought there was no way Rankin would be picked again.

If you make your players accountable then you have to drop them, and dropping players means players coming jn and out of your team which is bad for consistency and cohesion lol.

You do get caught up in the moment and think gee we just need to beat the Raiders and where playing semi final footy, but realistically we have so many 1st Graders that simply aren't that.
Our Forwards are soft bellies with no Mongrel or intimidation about them.
They couldn't even get physced up for the occasion in the opening 20 minutes with a packed house.
Then again a Club with no accountability with the same plodders getting picked every week, they are hardly going to bust there guts when they will still get picked regardless the following week.
A bit of complacency happening with some of our players IMO.
I can still visually see Rankin knocking that ball on against the Bulldogs that was on his chest that would of sealed the game or the 200 knock ons i had to witness at Penrith Stadium from Rankin but he still got picked every week .
The lack of involvement from Brooks throughout the year the missed tackles that led to tries .
The poor lack of defensive reads from Naiqama , the rushing up in defence when not required .
Lovett , Edwards etc but they will all get picked every week .
We had Addo-Carr untouched for half a year and persisted with Rankin when Addo- Carr was the form winger during Pre-Season , Rod Griffin not even experimented and see if he had it .
I was there too, and if ever accountability was called on it was after that game, as JT cranked on about when Farah was dropped, JT lied there was no accountability and Farah was shoved out, just sack the bloke and move on.
