    Exactly. I think the frustrations of the past two years have just got the best of a few people, and because of this it seems that if you make a mistake you should be dragged out the back of the terry lamb grandstand at belmore and shot in the back of the head.
    I think he will come good this year. Real good.

    I love his attitude. There's purpose in every hit up, every tackle. He has a proper dig. Seriously needs to fix his hands though.

    Attitude can not be underestimated! You can have all the skill in the world, but if you dont put in the effort or have a shit attitude you will go nowhere.
    As you say, and actually you are the first person to mention his attitude, he has the right attitude and a hell of a lot of heart. He will improve in leaps and bounds this year!!

    Tony Williams - big, strong, quick
    Josh Jackson average size, strong, average pace.

    What could be the key attribute that differentiates these two.. hmmm..

    JJ had some pretty awful drops when we were in attacking positions.. I can remember at least one game that his handling cost us the game when we were attempting a fight back.

    but i don't blame the players I blame Des.. Yes it wasn't Des dropping the ball but it was Des deciding to spend hours on stats and video work and not on ball skills.

    Des is the kind of coach that can take a great team to a GF and win.. not one that can take an ordinary team and make them great, or take a player with raw skills and develop them.

    Totally agree mate. A happy work environment is a productive working environment. Its no different in sport.
    Under Dean Pay everyone seems to be super excited about this year, and just really happy to be there. This will translate to a massive improvement on the field too.
    Every player will improve this year.

    Very good player in the making imo. The level of hate he has copped from some is absurd.

    You don’t think mistakes and poor decisions happen when team morale is bad? What a narrow minded post. Hasler WAS partly responsible for our handling errors. He was so obsessed with completions he got into some players’ heads. Anyone who would write a player with Elliot’s potential off because he made some mistakes during our club’s most frustrating season in recent memory is a bit of a knee jerk reactionary imho.

    You’ll probably be wiping mud off your face soon.

    I can’t stand him!

    Seems to try and get his head on camera and thrown his opinion whoever holds a microphone.

    And runs it up with gusto and trips and falls without a hand laid on him.

    His head drives me nuts

    Lol it’s a good and exciting time at the freaking club, why wouldn’t I feel optimistic? What is so optimistic about assuming that a player who showed a lot of potential in the first part of the season will improve under a better coach? Elliot’s potential was clear. It’s you who is being a bit too negative tbh.

    What is the point of being a footy fan if we aren’t going to be optimistic sometimes? Beats following it as some sort of curmudgeonly misery guts who expects the worst all the time

    Give the kid time and Pay will mould him into another Andrew Ryan, has great attacking skills, runs very good lines and can tackle albeit makes a few errors every now and then but name me a player whose never made a handling error and I’ll stick feathers in my butt and become a Roosters fan! Just quietly I hope no one provides evidence of a mistake free player!

    Go away bud
    Disliking one player has translated into me not liking my club or looking forward to the year??? Wow
    Plz ignore my posts from now on seeing as though I’m sooooo negative
    Wouldn’t want to hit you with a dose of reality

    The guy is average at best
    At best he should be on the bench in fg
    Not starting over the likes of rfm, jacko, tolman, Thalia, Fualalo, priest, Tuamaga, martin etc
