This thread is for discussion of his tactics, selections, and any other coach-related rants which may be causing you headaches and need to be externalised.

2. Parental guidance I
Matt Elliott often likes to use an analogy around coaching and raising children. Team selections, he says, is about showing players faith. "Like your kid who you've told to wash up and make your bed, they are not going to do it every time. Your job as a parent is to stick by them, tell them you love them and tell them to make the bed properly. When people ask me if I am losing the faith [in my players], absolutely not. Watch me stick with them."

3. Parental guidance II
Elliott then offered this when talking about Shaun Johnson and the goalkicking duties. "Like the kids, I'm going to stick with him. I'm looking forward to the time when he kicks a goal from the sideline to win a game and everyone says, 'how good was that?'. You have to go through it and sometimes it's tough. If you have had kids who are difficult - I have four daughters so I have a little insight into it - it's good sticking by them, keeping the faith and they come out the other side and end up being good kids." It's not known if Johnson does the washing up and makes his own bed.

4. A dingo stole my baby
Elliott, clearly on a roll, bristled when asked about the NRL drugs scandal. "It's one of those ones where you don't want to say that Lindy [Chamberlain] did it or the dingo did it because you could be wrong. I don't know why our game is being dragged through the mud. I'm not condoning what players have reputedly done but I d
