Parra players speak to the media

Why are the players speaking to the media?

Especially what I just heard...."players think they can't win the GF if they finish out of the top 4.

What type of positive thinking is that crap? If anything they've just put more pressure on themselves to beat Tigers.

But what if they don't beat Tigers? Do they change their minds and say they can win from 5th? 

Bloody Hopeless, and it starts from the top!!

  • Unless they say "we are crap, our coach is crap, we can't win the comp, we are as surprised as anyone we made the top 8 let alone top 4, we are just making up the numbers, did we mention our coach is crap...." then you're not going to be satisfied, so why worry about a professional rugby league player having a positive opinion of his teams chances in the upcoming finals, how dare they.

  • Unfortunately it's in Parra's contract that we allow the media to speak with some players midweek.

    Dopey thing to say though.

    • On Analyst's part yes......what would expect the players to say......

      for the others who think it is ok to suggest the coach and players are not over bright.....can I suggest that they verbalise for them what they should say!

      • How about they say something like,. 

        "We're confident we will give a good account of ourselves in the finals regardless where we finish"

        "If we don't get our attack into gear it  won't matter where we finsih on the ladder" 


        "We are more concerned with fixing our obvious issues against the tigers this Friday than where we finish" 


        Instead they dribble about how they can win the comp,, it remimds me  of how Gutherson opened his mouth like a fool before the Storm semi last year  when he said " we are  not scared of the Storm" then they shit themselves and got humiliated 32 0, Gutherson couldn't just say it  will be a very tough game and leave it at that. 


        Eels players are always making outlandish comments and predictions and it's been happening. For years, clearly their is no real leadership or standards at he club. 


        • It's not just Eels players Fongie. Unfortunately not many NRL players are able to communicate properly and their clubs do not provide them with the necessary training. 

          • Do you hear Roosters, Souths, Storm or Raiders players making outlandish comments and predictions like eels players do and have in the past?  No because they have leadership and standards, parra has no real leader at the club and haven't since Fitzy. 

            • Mmmmmmmm not sure about outlandish comments but certainly outlandish behaviour, and im not so sure what their clubs leadership and standards are like when the following is allowed to happen.

              There are a lot more incidents within the clubs mentioned but i was getting bored giving them oxygen. Point probably made though, glass houses and all that.











        • Agreed, we don't handle pressure at all, so why make those comments, it's just common sense isn't it? As I said previously, not smart.

        • This ^^^^..... can't wait to hear Brissy's reply lol

          • Fine with them giving those answers that Fong has suggested, 100%, but it's all in context. You haven't said what the question was from the journalist/reporter and I have no idea where you got it from, therefore, you simply taking an answer to some random question somewhere and bagging the crap out of the player(s) for saying it is a joke. You've also changed your blog from what you originally posted, which again, not only completely changes the context of what the question may have been, it's completely changed what you originally posted the player(s) said!!!
