General What a stupid thing to say

Asked how much harder the loss made his side's hopes of making the play-offs, Roosters coach Ricky Stuart said: "That's two points we haven't got. [But] we had 11 out. Without any disrespect to the Warriors, give me one or two of our players back and we probably get a different result."

www.smh.com.au

Ricky Stuart has made quite the art form of making a rod for his own back with various comments over the years. Remember 2003? We only won because we slowed the game down, took forever to goal kick which was a deliberate ploy because we were unfit. Or a game against Newcastle where the Chooks just got home and the media commented on the Knights being without many players, and Stuart going on the defensive saying yeah but I only used 7 replacements to try and get the sympathy vote.

Before the game he talked about being confident for the match, his comments post game almost strikes of a man who thought his side had no chance. If I were one of his players, I wouldn't be too impressed with his thoughts on the game.

As I stated in another post, there were two games in 2002 where we didn't have Stacey Jones away to the Storm and to the Knights - people wrote us off. We still won. There were games at the tail end of 2003 where we were sithout Stacey Jones again, we lost to Newcastle away, and the Storm at home, but gained vital wins against the Chooks away, Broncos at home, Dragons away to make the top 8 and even then a half injured Stacey guided us to a 30 point demolition of the Dogs. In 2002, in a game against Wests Tigers we fielded our second string side except for about 4-5 players, Campo, Jones, Lauitiiti, Swann, Seu Seu, even Meli from memory all sat out as the likes of David Myles ran the show... we still got the win, comfortably. A team that can't function without one or two players as he puts it is horribly imbalanced, or perhaps his motivational skills are not that good if deep down inside he feels his side are no chance of winning without those players - in his own words, it seems he feels one or two players make all the difference, not his motivational skills, not his tactical nouse, not the enthusiasm of the young players, nor the quality of the opposition or their performance, just one or two players.

What a Neville!

Thats Ricky for ya, Ricky is all about Ricky. Thats the way he's been since he first came to league. Also it's his attitude that made him what he is, he's a winner and will win at all costs....he sulks when he loses.

Ricky has had he's caraer handed out on a brad fittler platter. With half an australian team at hes disposal for many years. Some think bobo the monkey could have coached during those years and the results the would be have been the same, i agree. He is being exposed for what he really is & once your exposed as a bad coach its hard to gain the respect back of your players. Before last weeks injury & origin toll he had a envieble team line up & did caput with it. Not even two of the 3 best players, braith anasta & ashley harrison, (matt orford 3rd) on the market could improve his coaching succsess. Thats a failure in its self. I don't know how long his dynasty will last or even buying even more stars will fix the roosters but i believe & hope brad fittler will eventually coach. He made he's coaching debuet last week with succsess, he knows the game & has got huge respect from the players. I do not support the roosters but i believe fittler is the better man.

I think it takes away from the young guys aswell as the likes of Fitzgibbon and Morley every single one of the 17 that went onto the feild on sunday have had a piece of them taken away in my opinion.

Coaches like Sticky, Wayne, John and Brian Smith have one thing in common. They talk. They talk before and after a game. When they win they are all for praises and bragging. But once you hand them a loss they go on the defensive and find faults at all corners. And you know where they find faults from? The opponets. Sometimes they pick of their own team but not always.
In Ricky's case I thought his comment about 'having one or two of his top liners back' is a terrible insult to the younger guys. Personally I thought they all played well and really showed what they've got. In case Stuart forgot but in 2005, at Aussies the Roosters had guys like Mini, WIng, Fitzy and a few others all playing but they still lost to us by two points.
I don't think just because you have your best players around garentees anything.
Stuart needs to open his eyes, he lost a multi talented 5/8 and nothing covers for that because since then the Roosters aren't the playing like the kind of team we have seen.
If I were some of those young guys I wouldn't have been happy with his comment either.

He's always got an excuse for everything, which is probably his downfall. He doesn't realise that his team didn't play very well, or the Warriors played good, he just has an excuse why they lost which is very stupid to say the least. He has to confront his problems because they won't go away by ignoring them.

Geez he annoys me, he always trys to find someone else to blame when they dont win. Sure they had alot of players out, but he chose that team to play!!
