    I do agree with you and almost mentioned coached like Bennett, Jack Gibson and Tim Sheens, but decided to keep my examples to Manly related.

    Funny that. I only raised Bennett because you already named all the manly coaches i was thinking of.

      The common denominator with all the great coaches that this game has had, Willey, Stanton, Fulton, Hasler, Bath, Beetson, Bennett, Gibson and Sheens, is that they were the coach first, friend second. Yes they were approachable, but they were also ruthless and players personal feelings didn't get in the way of their ultimate goal of winning games. Their players bought into what they were preaching and in a lot of ways were afraid to lose. With Barrett, it was almost like "OK, we lost. Lets go have a few beers".

      In professional sports, nice guys do more often than not finish last. As far as most of the players went, Barrett was too nice for his and our own good.

        WE’RE hearing Trent Barrett will join St George Illawarra as an assistant coach to Paul McGregor once his contract at Manly expires in July.

          Please. He was a coaching disgrace.

          A waste of 3 years ... who bitched and moaned to Gould as well as the media when he showed he was so far out of his depth that it was pathetic to watch.
          Always looking for excuses and never took ownership for being terrible at his job.

          Thank goodness his tenure is almost done and soon he will be a distant memory in the coaching ranks at Manly....

            But he can redeem himself.
            He could continue the great work of other undercover Sea Eagles operatives that have been members of a white ant brigade successfully reaping havoc on the success of other clubs.
            Foran, choc and even brigadeer Des himself.
            But he who cannot coach has a lot of ground to make up.
            Heading for the exit would be a great 1st step...

                We need all the help we can and he can cripple a team quickly

                  If only he'd had a sprint coach to help him....

                  Who knows what magic they would have created....

                    If they hired him tomorrow would it be too late for him to take them all out for beers to celebrate their big win over the dogs? They earned it, right?

                    You’re assuming he was ever a Sea Eagle in the first place.

                    He should be medically retired, due to mental issues. It's quite obvious he'll never be able to fully coach again!

                        Baz is still taking up Manly's resources.
                        He could simply start at the Drags before Jul 2nd.:cool:

                        I want an investigation to find out if he is doing a Flanno and assisting by stealth already :mad:
