EYE-BALL’s Snoop-Poop on – NSW SOO Coach – A Dirty Stinkin’ RAT
NSW SOO Coach – A Dirty Stinkin’ RAT …
|The 2012 SOO Game 2 tonight will define Ricky Stuart in more ways then one. This scribe has offered every opportunity for the NSW Rugby League to revisit their folly when they appointed Mr Stuart as the SOO coach – but alas they have chosen to ignore the advice and give ‘Ricky the Rat’ another chance at glory.
Ricky is well named as a RAT – he looks like a rat – eyes, nose, mouth, forehead … all a mirror image of a slimeball trying to squeeze into a crevice where only RAT’s would ever go. He played for Australia in two different codes – which meant he could play the game – he was never much liked on the field, by either fan or opposition players – even his own club mates had issues.
The current QLD SOO Coach Mal Meninga was a team-mate at both Club and Test level. Ricky envies Mal’s achievements at SOO level and it shows in everything he oozes. This is what drives the man – personal glory – a chance to be a hero – he envies most successful people and that in itself is no crime. But coaching to impose what he thinks are his star qualities on his players – as opposed to letting the players show him what they can do is why he will never be a big-time coach.
Last season in the middle of the SOO campaign – he thought of tossing his SOO Coach position to take up the Canterbury coaching position when the Club dumped Kevin Moore. Problem was they did not want him – poor Ricky – he is on the ‘do not hire’ list of all NRL CEO’s … and he only has himself to blame.
He is under pressure – if NSW lose tonight – Ricky’s chance of ever getting another coaching gig are about the same as Bernie Maddof getting out of jail in his lifetime. He is so tied up in knots with the stress and pressure – he refused to front the NSW media conference yesterday and sent his No 2 Trent Barrett to do his bidding. He does not trust himself and that mental scenario – will always send him where he is most comfortable – being a RAT …
NSW can’t win tonight’s game unless QLD don’t show up … they’re outmatched in ever department – experience, talent, star quality, game-breakers, kickers, halves, centers, forwards, fullback, and yet the odds have the contest as a $1.85/$1.95 market. Rookie Bookie has erred in claiming me for a 100,000 wager – I offered him the bet by laying NSW at the $1.95 – he accepted and now the contest is how does one ship 100,000 cockroaches north of the border … collecting his cane toads as the alternative would also be interesting.
This Rugby League scribe has never steered his followers wrong – NSW players will not go through their own personal hell to win it for ‘Ricky the RAT’ – something QLD players would do for Mal anytime and anywhere. That is the difference – NSW are coached by a RAT – play like RATS, and snivel like RATS when beaten.
The 84,000 odd NSW fans will tonight say goodbye to ‘Ricky the RAT’ forever … and the game in NSW will be better off for it.
QLD 26-14 …
