  • Kevvie watch

    I've been fascinated to watch what Kevvie Walters is doing with his public face of Origin, and what he has asked his players to do.

    It has been so false and almost living in denial. And a hard watch. I said before Game 1 he won't win the series with this approach. The energy of the coach affects the players.

    But looking at him tonight on NRL 360 it was almost as if he had an epiphany during the interview with Ikin and the tough guy.

    He began calling them NSW, making specific opposition references and actually laughed and relaxed a bit...that's the real Kevvie!

    Watching with interest into game 3.

          I think it meant they were not switched on from the start

Until the colour of a mans skin is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes. Then its a war. That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race Then its a war

            I am so stoked to see him shattered. That Elmer Fudd clown was being such a cock and he only got worse after they won the first game. Can't wait to see him after they get murdered in Game three.

            He is like a born-again christian who suddenly realises there is no such thing as god. He hadn't even considered they could lose and now his world has fallen apart. All or nothing and he got nothing.

            LOL at "the tough guy". Basically sums him up.

                  He seems like an okay guy but maybe not the sharpest tool in the shed. I reckon Brisbane just didn't rate him as a potential head coach.

                    The 'living in denial' approach is castles in the air. There are some techniques that work well providing the players buy fully into it. Basically NLP stuff packaged for sports. Kevvie looked like a bloke who'd borrowed the wrong size suit. He was still struggling with the concepts.

                    I'd like to see some stats calculated on these coach whisperers. We're always going to be reading about the victories and the mysterious merlins. Fact is generally the best team wins and for mine a lot of the time the whisperers are just part of the bandwagon.

                    Qld's hatred of the unfair advantage NSW had back in the day fostered their fire. It was a joke that greats like Artie Beetson were representing NSW in that win at all costs mentality the NSW League had. The big man showed what he really thought in SOO 1980 and it's been that way ever since. That's what fires Qld.

                    But good on Kevvie in Game One where his unique approach worked. He explained he had a new team and he had to focus them. They know what's required in Game 3 and let's hope it's a cracker. But blokes like Gordon Tallis and Mal Meninga Cam Smith are likely to have a better effect than mind games. They've been there...done that...and done it well.

                      I met Kev on a flight recently. He was very friendly. Seems a good bloke.

                        Did you fire off any footy questions for him?

                          I would have tested his general knowledge...Which Australian state has the highest population?

                            Has he ever thrown any of his players under the bus and accepted no blame for a loss?
                            Has he ever told the media to let the players know they have been dropped?

                            I don't mind Kevvie.
