Ettridge became so creative in explaining away his grand final losses that in the end, he was just discovering more ways to lose. Classic case of paralysis by analysis.
Replacing him is the equivalent to the Heimlich manoeuvre- clear the obstruction in the airway so normal breathing can begin again. Amen

my information is that the goldfields giants players had no respect for wayne creeks coaching ABILITY .therefore this team was lucky to get were they did because of how smart there leadership group was . bowie,holloway,humphries etc.
the giants board have decided to stick with the coach and not listen to the players and are know going to loose quality players and people.
sometimes you need to listen to the players- look at the rockingham women.

No pot stirring - this has come from Lukosius himself through multiple people in the metro area. Old mate who says you're one of the players, the ship is sinking hurry up and abandon it with your comrades while you can or be stuck with more mediocrity than a Wolves Men's team in the Grand Final
the magic men are a basket case team going nowhere ever. their best season is still their inaugural season in 1990 - that is abysmal. the women's team on the other hand are perennial grand final chokers
sure the club gets fans to games - there is not a saturated market in mandurah

Okay Moose, I'll bite.
I have avoided this forum in recent times as unfortunately it has become a cesspool of misinformation, ghost whispers, undeserved and misguided criticism, and sadly pure loathing and hate. But when my name is mentioned and linked with some of that misinformation and ghost whispers, then you have crossed the line.
Moose, you obviously know who I am (it's no secret to most people in SBL circles), and I have absolutely no problem with putting my name to my posts (unlike yourself). So please call me - I'm pretty sure you have my number - and I will debate with you the misinformation and untruths being thrown around here, and update you with what the ACTUAL situation is with our playing group and coaching staff. You will probably be very surprised as it will be completely different to what you think.
If you feel you want to continue debating this on this message thread, you will be wasting your time as I won't be responding.
Tribute to Benny Dover - Rating the Chokes
No.4 - 2017
If I can give Ettridge a tiny tiny break, is that this was more a 50/50 game I didn't think they were the strong favourites in this game.
Bet365 thought otherwise, and they weren’t just beat they were absolutely embarrassed in what was one of the biggest lopsided GF games in SBL history.
The game was effectively over by quarter time. Not even a sniff.
With Ben refusing to make any changes or adjustments he sat back and watching his team sink without a yelp. Pathetic.
No.3 - 2019
The running stoush with Buccs Skipper Moot, only adds to this story.
Ben attacked the Buccs organisation during a regular season game in 2018, only to poach the very same player he was condemning in the offseason.
#builtnotbrought was turned on its head as Benny did everything he could to buy his way out of a 4 peat.
To blatantly bag out a team, only then to do the exact same thing means Ben actually fielded 1 wolves player in his top 7 players.
So as Minor Premiers shaping up to a Bucc’s team on the road, recently sending home an import, and getting destroyed by one of the players he bagged (MVP – Hunt) and let down by the one he poached (Ross) was an all-time classic.
No.2 – 2016
Losing the final regular season game and conceding the minor premiership, Benny then felt compelled to tell anyone and everyone that would listen that "we will see what happens in the Grand Final".
When word broke that when Cougars lost captain and best player Gav Field, Benny boy’s talking and confidence grew louder and louder as he was eyeing back to back championship’s, the shirts and hats were ordered.
What transpired was anything but, again a contest over early with Benny refusing to shake hands and smash his white board in full view of the crowd.
No.1 – 2018
Hawks losing stud import Holmen in the Semi-finals, left the Hawkies right for the picking, Wolves starting as the unbackable favourites, the result seemed a foregone conclusion, all the Wolves had to do was turn up.
However after losing 2 in a row, external pressure was building on the Wolfpack, but no one had any idea the mental demons Ben was facing inside, his kool aid he was drinking was going sour.
With Ben clearly struggling they went on to lose the unloseable of games, and the greatest upset in SBL history was set.
Losing to a Domestic team of Perry Lakes juniors the unthinkable happened and handed Benny boy his 3 peat.
Wolves should have won this game by 20pts with one hand behind tied behind their backs.
I am a massive Wolves fan. My observation for the past 2 Grand Final games have been both the Hawks and the Buccs took their intensity up another notch. The Wolves just seemed to be in cruise mode and not play with the same sort of passion as the eventual victors.
Re giants. Will be interesting to see the fall out.
I have it on good authority a massive chunk of those players or the main nucleus are in serious doubt of returning if not gone already for various reasons. Anything else said on here which states otherwise is just lip service.
Haha love this bit - 'call me' so I can update you on the actual state of affairs as they would be ‘completely different to what you think’
It’s actually worse than what most would think.
So the Giants win 14 games and move from the bottom of the ladder in 2018 and it's a disaster.
Moose says it's from Lukosius, Lukosius say it's different to what's allegedly been said and Anon keeps telling stories.
It's got to be coming from somewhere.
I bet the ex-Willeton WABL players that defected to Cockburn, and may be trialing for selection to the 2020 U18M Metro State Team, are happy the State Coach is now their new Club's MSBL Head Coach...it's funny how things like that happen sometimes
Wow we're clutching at straws there a bit aren't we. Clearly some jaded willo person based on the remark. Let it go, they left its done, move on people far out. Previous post saying Thwaites appointed himself women's coach clearly doesn't look on their social media page much given they were only asking for further EOI for that position this morning. Perhaps if you're going to make up BS you should at least make it a bit harder to fact check.
The Thwaites thing may not be done yet and shouldn't of been written like that but I think it is fair enough to speculate on it.
They open the positions in August with him running the process for both men and women ending in Coops being appointed men's coach.
They now re-open the women with the expressions to go to the President. It definitely creates a process and pathway for him to apply for it.
So 2020 Coaches:
M: Andrew Cooper
M: Driscoll? Wildcats Assistants??
M: Dayle Joseph
M: Wayne Creek
W: Tom Knowles
M: Mark Utley
M: Dave Daniels
W: Craig Watts
M: Aaron Trahair
W: Deanna Smith
M: Matt Parsons
W: Craig Allen
M: Craig Jackson
W: Keegan Crawford
M: Ryan Petrik
W: Nathan Grover
W: Charles Nix
W: Dion D'Agostino
M: Mike Ellis
W: Simon Parker?
M: Stephen Black
Will be interesting to see where Nener ends up now that he is out at Cockburn. he did well with what he had to work with.
Coops will do well there and will be interesting to see if any rocko boys follow him there. Travers?
Rumours swirling that Ettridge could be linked with another SBL club for 2020 season
Will be interesting to see how Tigers go with their recruiting in the offseason. Barrow didnt exactly set the world on fire for them and their second import situation didnt work out for them. Will they go with the model of trying to attract imports from other clubs or try to recruit out of the US?
CJ Jackson in at the Redbacks will be interesting. You can imagine he will be able to recruit a few guys there. Does he look at Redhage and Roberts returning?
Who do lakeside get to replace Kyle?
Do they back isenbarger in for another season and retain Wall?
Wolves. do salinas and illiadis go around again? Does Ross return? Davis?
From who i have heard Cockburn interviewed for the Womens SBL job I am amazed they have re advertised
some pretty qualified and experienced coaches were in the mix
you can only imagine this next process is just a formality and they have their person in mind!
I do think the changing the Finals format would bring a fresh look to things....
Wolves v Flames
Lakeside v Gero
Hawks v Suns
Stirling v Giants
Flames v Stirling
Lakeside v Hawks
Wolves v Lakeside
Gero v Flames
Wolves v Gero
Similar results but I just did a different path for the fun of it.
Big Booty Ho
And he won a medal at 12s Schoolboys with the same group. Outside of that he has done very, very little in terms of results but talks a mean game as well as benefited greatly from being a favourite of the former high performance regime where if you kissed enough ass it did not matter your results
Why all the hate for Tyrone.
What am I missing?
He doing great things down at Cockburn, passionate, pro-active, junior development, WABL, domestic, everything is on the up since he become GM.
SBL is not but lets be honest SBL not a high priority, they actually had SBL program in the black for first time in a long long time.
He gets off his bum and gets things done, or at least tries to make a difference.
Should be a lot more people out there like him.
