    Freddys commentary now is about justifying his decision(s), quite foolishly.

    I'm not sure he even believes some of what he's saying.
    My friend keeps saying "Cheer up mate it could be worse. You could be stuck underground in a hole full of water". I know he means well.

      Despite the headline, there is no evidence presented in the article of Latrell having a "hissy fit". That's just the SMH goon journalist stirring things up. This is the same guy that wanted the Roosters disciplined for not telling him that Cooper had a broken shoulder.

      It's pure speculation. He might just as well have said "Mitchell could flee to Brazil after SOO snub".

        Great Roosters player and all and thanks to him for what he did for us but he could not manage a Chook raffle. Complete idiot.
        I can see where you are coming from. the few times I have had dealings with him he was not necessarily a dick but def not easy to engage.
        He has not had a "normal" life and seems to live in another world
        The Internet is a place for posting silly things
        Try and be serious and you will look stupid

          I'm not suggesting that Lats is having a hissy fit, only that if he is as was reported then he needs to learn and grow from this. And yes, there are some lowlife journos who love nothing more than stirring the pot, especially if they have a dislike of a particular team.

            I honestly think he thought that everyone would agree with the decision to drop Latrell because Gus had braying about it so loudly, and Gus seems to be the only one Fittler listens to. I think he may be somewhat taken aback now by the horrified reactions by nearly everyone south of the border, so he has to try and justify his absolutely shit decision. The more he talks, the more shrill he sounds. I can't listen to him anymore - he get's switched off as soon as he pops up, radio or tv.

              Please quote where Letrell has had any (hissy fit) its all media hype.

                Craig Wing on nrl.com gets it right. Says there are a few selection decisions that look like 'head-scratchers', but he's going for the team anyway. Like Robbo said, Freddy's the coach and should get the team he wants. I hope the Blues win and Latrell comes back for game 3, by hook or by crook, and has a blinder.

                That said, if the Blues lose in Perth Freddy has to take responsibility.

                Hate to say it, but the best coaching option for the Blues is Robbo. You'd figure the NSWRL could work something out where he gets the gig but has people like Dan Buderus, Fitzy and JT doing a lot of the leg work.

                  LOL yeah why do they troll their readers with that line?

                  It's like the crooked strata company that manages one of my investment properties (an apartment). They are called 'Independent' (capital 'I') and at quite literally EVERY strata meeting they are like 'we hired an Independent painter, an Independent cleaning company, an Independent handyman...etc and now we're gonna raise the levy by 30% so that we can raise money to check whether the aluminium cladding is okay... ooooh no... we strictly cannot sue the builder [who owns us] because the materials were definitely compliant at the time... most certainly!!!'

                  Or back in law school... I challenged the grades that this idiot eastern European lecturer (no Aussie law degree and a questionable foreign one, but she was sleeping with the head of school [who hooked her up with the job and was under fire for doing so], so you had to be careful of both). I walked in and gently asked for a breakdown of how she'd calculated a bollocks 'class participation' mark (worth 20% which she'd given me 2/20 for because I quit her stupid mooting team... an unrelated activity), bumping me down from an HD to a pass. Instantly she started screaming at me and saying 'HOW DARE YOU QUESTION MY ACADEMIC INDEPENDENCE!!! I AM INDEPENDENT!! I GRADED YOU INDEPENDENTLY AND THIS WAS NOT PERSONAL!!!' I was like 'eeeerm I never said that, I just asked you for a breakdown of the mark so that I can do better next time'. This dragged on for 18 months (well past my graduation) because the 'independent' head of school backed her all the way. After graduating (first class honours so it had zero impact on my final grades) the dean of education called me in and was like 'I received your complaint... here's a new copy of your transcript, do you agree with your new mark for this subject? The eastern European lady is no longer with the uni and we have a new head of the law school... old head has been moved sideways... shhhhh okay?' I still wasn't happy due to the lack of procedure/independence in what happened there. But... I did take the new transcript and run

                  The word independent shytes me if you didn't notice
                  Awesome vindication, bra. Nepotism never works out.
                  Making Steve Naughton look like Vince Mellars...

                    I wouldn't want Robbo as coach of NSW. Bellamy only won 2/9 because there isn't enough preparation time for a highly structured coach to make an impact. SOO suited to inspirational coaches capable of getting the best out of individuals.

                      Maybe. But Bellamy's record in GFs is 50% (including when his team was over the salary cap). His failure at Origin level might have more to do with his patchy record of getting teams up for big games.

                      Agree that, say, Meninga was a guy who was better suited to coach at Origin than club level.

                      I reckon Robbo would go well.

                        Roosters star Latrell Mitchell is reportedly considering turning his back on NSW coach Brad Fittler over his State of Origin Game 2 axing.

                          The current group of coaches and advisers not only hung him out to dry but have continued to fuel the fire.

                          I keep hearing them talking about accountability and effort, lets flip that 180 and talk about the responsibilities of a leader. There's been no leadership from this NSW camp by throwing a 21yo under the bus, it's embarrassing and quite frankly every player working underneath that leadership group would be concerned about the way one of their co-workers has just been treated as it could just as easily happen to them. That's not a good culture, that's not a good environment.

                          I loved Freddy as a player but it's easy to see how he lost the respect of the playing group in 2009.
                          Do you reckon Gus played a hand in this?

                          I get that Freddy can pick the team and all but why did the public scolding go on? IMO part of being a strong organisation is that you don't air your dirty laundry. Like sure drop Latrell, but NSW is one... QLD will be laughing at us over this.

                          If Latrell's got personal stuff that he's shared with you as the coach then don't go fukking sharing it with the world. Keep it private and give the public a strong, unified face.

                          I'm not a Liberal fan but Howard and Costello had lotsa clashes over the years. They stayed in power because they gave the public a confident, unified face no matter what was going on. As soon as you air your dirty laundry, you're fuuuucked. Bloody hell Freddy...

                              It's common knowledge Vegans eat their own turds, which supports the age old saying "shit for brains" being applied to Fittler.

                              The speed of his evolution into complete karnt can only be measured by the LHC.
