Hi Willie and readers. My crystal ball reads it differently. South’s beating knights and storm doing rooster again in first week, working towards a storm v panthers gf

My crystal ball for this year's finals

Yes, both states radar

Trent Robinson: The best coach of the modern era

Yep, surely, surely more factors, but that one was there to help.

Revisiting the proposal for an NRL draft

Is there evidence of that happening though every year, or by multiple teams every year? Or it just fan thoughts?

Revisiting the proposal for an NRL draft

I can’t remember off top of head, but was terry hill ‘made’ to move or put into draft? Surely a player would/should have be able to say no to be in draft or draft result? Do the other sports work that way?

Revisiting the proposal for an NRL draft

I think you got to look at more the a few years though, surely drafts in those successful comps have analytical data showing teams places and drafts success or failure. I think more telling are finals results over a period like a decade or two, if it ranked, have three or four teams getting into finals two or three times in twenty years it poor compared to teams not missing two or three times.

But would that happen now? Can union, does union have the money to draw a noticeable number of talent from the league?

Excellent, excellent post there Footy Fan.

Trent Robinson: The best coach of the modern era

Hi Daniel. It all just opinion in the end. How much involvement did robbo have when cordner was at Taree (was it Taree?)‘nurturing’ him up through the grade? Roosters finding talent is different to ‘who the better coach’ unless it can be actually documented that ‘couch A’ said, ‘I know our team talent scout said no, but I’m pushing yes’. I also think with ‘finding talent’ you don’t put ‘giving them opportunity or break’, talents going to make it. ‘Giving a break’ is for someone never looked at as ‘talent’, like documented other teams saying ‘nope, not signing jr cordner’ cause they don’t rate him

Amazing crystal ball there jimmmy. Lol.

Trent Robinson: The best coach of the modern era

Me!!!! I thought they had this sort of football left in them. Always rated them to to in nsw team if fit, often did great handle dangerous star Inglis when other couldn’t.

Trent Robinson: The best coach of the modern era

Oh excellent. I always find it interesting people hostile reaction to super league during the war. The ARL’s own plans were just as harsh (just super league beat them to the punch). The art of the idea I don’t agree with in their plans was possibility of kicking single city teams.

Super League revisited: The people (N-Z)

I think ‘stretch’ the eligibility to cover a possible downtime in a teams period of players with lesser skills. I think it ok to help smaller leagues in the international comp, but at state of origin it still be ‘first played senior with’. Not for where your grand parents come from or who players you liked played for, where you used to walk a dog or once went to school at for six month. If it not who you played first grade for with but they want early, club you first signed a contract/received something for playing with if at a jr age.

Super League revisited: The people (N-Z)

Yeah maybe, but Reynolds does have a few years on Keary so generally a 22 player would be better then a 20 year old. But Keary was earmarked as origin as a jr, I may be wrong but I don’t think Reynolds was as a jr. poor Reynolds was a nsw rep during the time of nsw not having good enough halves. He has never been next level in that position, what nsw needed. Will Leary’s name go down as an origin half be name? Don’t know yet, he may have to hurry

Trent Robinson: The best coach of the modern era

Hi Nico. I never realised there was much of a time origin teams got picked on place of birth. Didn’t birth only come in in 2012. How many of that team does it apply too?

Super League revisited: The people (N-Z)

What are people thoughts and ideas of ‘what if’ super league didn’t happen? I don’t get how people weren’t aware or brush over the ARL’s plans.

Super League revisited: The people (N-Z)

But Keary was rated as future ‘origin’ while at South’s. Lots of people could see what he had from an early age.

Trent Robinson: The best coach of the modern era

Hi Harry. Is you point Keary wouldn’t have become as good under any other couch, even Bellamy?

Trent Robinson: The best coach of the modern era

Hi Harry. I think Ted would be just as good if he went to any of the top five/6 teams.

Trent Robinson: The best coach of the modern era

Hello Andrew01. Really interesting observation there with the coaches being reversed. I agree.

Trent Robinson: The best coach of the modern era

Yep, sorry I meant more ‘strong’ as in the board, the organisation, the direction, the ideas rather then a comp with Zimbabwe and Bangladesh (no offence). But those two and the W.I.’s geting more regular games against the top teams and funding will help them and the comp. It like all other sports leagues, the weakest team is the weakest link, if the weakest is still competitive and strong it helps the entire comp. Atm the big cricket teams just playing each other every other year, playing a minnow in who knows when, don’t help.

That sucks Peter, not even able to give games away. A possible future could be a U.S. baseball style season/game. Australia playing India and England every three years in tests and whoever left whenever the can get in line, some teams never to play aust again. Test finish in three days, national test team skills whittled down so much by multiple t20 comps around the world, mostly India, a player never having a cricket home season record like in the past cause those games aren’t what they used to be and just aren’t on. But a t20 style baseball record of 30/40 plus player teams, multiple games a week, playing till they 40. All changed and grown to fit tv, like the U.S. other sport. What does the future hold?

Well first off, I know nothing. Cricket is up against it and not as straight forward as regular sporting comps, international boards doing own thing, three diff formats, year round playing, different seasons and the size of the world. What would be best comp (and it all needs give and take from boards and fans), would be an actual season. Maybe Aust doesn’t get a test every Boxing Day, let alone at MCG. Or cricket season Don’t start in November for Aust. Runs from December to August. Aust might play A few games in other Country during our summer. Surely a ‘brain’, a ‘team of brains’ Could work out a World draw for a set season. I think because of huge travel distances, season length and breaks, three formats they could increase team size (I get this changes fundamentals) from 12 man to maybe five extras. As I said ‘don’t know’, but at the moment it’s organised to benefit money making and then only for some boards. No set direction. I think three formats can live together, but it should not be to the detriment of the others, or it shouldn’t be tripled games to grab money. The top four teams in afl, nrl only playing each other every second week would kill the game. A ‘packer revolution’ style billionaire come in, create his own ‘super tests’ and odi’s comp. Ten International teams, travelling roadshow. Not saying it be easy to organise, but it could be done if that the set plan. Atm it’s not the set plan. Yes people saying I’m a dreamer.

Cricket. Old dumb fans like me. Dreams of the sport having a super strong international comp.
