Album: Proposed Warriors/arl Competition
----------<br /> Nope. Players weren't told to lose.<br /> <br /> If you are in a position to be able to rotate a squad because you're guaranteed a finals spot you should do it every time.<br /> <br /> 2007 Manly came over here at the end of the season, rested players, lost the match. It happens everywhere in sport.<br /> <br /> If they hadn't of been beaten so bad then no one would give a shit.<br /> ----------<br /> I thought this topic was dead regarding the tanking this year LOL Though the penalty they got was weak IMO <br /> <br /> IMO I still question his coaching in the local scene - we beat his team of paid players in the Shaman last year. Something debated on here before. <br /> <br /> I think he would excel in the Warriors environment developing all the younger players coming through. He was a legend of a player and still very popular out there with the kids. Those kids will benefit all right from his guidance, he'll have the pick of the bunch, far better then the local players on hand that he worked with in the past. <br /> <br /> ME is very smart bringing Stacy into the mix, I only can see positives.<br /> <br /> My only negative in that article isn't so much about Stacy but the proposed Warriors/ARL League competition in the schools. Stacy is fronting a concept that doesn't have full support in the local scene here in Auckland, should start a new thread about this???
