Fair point.He could have chased harder from the beginning.
If you watch the whole sequence it’s as though both Boyd and Milford were shit scared of the support play and a pending pass so they held off. Thing is there was no support players and for me, Milford had a really good shot at tackling from behind.Fair point.
There is a real attitude problem amongst the whole side at the moment, they are all leaving it to someone else to do. It should be that two or three guys are competing, not two or three guys hoping the other guy is going to do it all for them.
Someone has been sticking these up around the city lol
Is taking pressure away from players still a good tactic? You don't see it at the Roosters, and you definitely don't see it in Melbourne, Bellamy blasts them for the smallest things.Does anyone else think it's possible that these articles from Boyd were just a way to control what the media were saying?
That perhaps he knew that his form wasn't up to the standard expected and was simply saying these things because he knew it would take the attention off the rest of the squad because the media would have been too busy blasting him?
It's something I've been thinking in the past couple of weeks. Surely he knows his efforts in the past couple of weeks are what's needed from him.
He's been under Bennett for 99% of his career and Bennett was always a master manipulator who was very good at controlling the narrative and taking the attention away from his squad.
Not everyone responds the same way. Some players respond differently. I don't think those sides also have as many young and inexperienced players as we do, players that aren't used to being hammered in the media every day.Is taking pressure away from players still a good tactic?
