Wayne Bennett has been criticized for his ‘outdated’ approach to the game which allegedly saw him refuse to allow a film crew to follow the Blues and Maroons camps for a documentary series

Channel 9 presenter Karl Stefanovic had organized a team to make a documentary similar in style to ESPN’s The Last Dance and Amazon Docuseries The Test, giving fans a rare glimpse into the preparation of Origin

However, the Daily Telegraph reported that despite vetoing any part of the series that could be deemed harmful, Bennett and the Queensland Rugby League have banned film crews

Paul Kent, of the Daily Telegraph, called Bennett’s decision a huge missed opportunity to help develop the game under difficult financial circumstances

« He can argue that, but it depends on your priorities, » he said on Triple M

« I was led to believe that this is not as over the top as we thought, this deal depends on whether you want to see a large or a small image

« Is it all about winning this series? » If that’s what it’s about not having cameras in there Big Picture Earlier this year when COVID hit, Netflix blasted the Michael Jordan documentary – The Last Dance – it became a hit all over the world

« The secret of the documentary was in Michael Jordan’s last season as Chicago Bull, they allowed the cameras There were certain conditions under which these cameras were allowed and Jordan had the right to object to any viewing in which he was uncomfortable

“It gave everyone a whole new glimpse of Jordan, sparked interest in the NBA and so a lot of sports around the world saw this and I told Andrew Abdo about it myself, the future of the rugby league is to sell the history of the rugby league « 

Kent said Origin is unique in that it’s the only product the league has to sell globally

« If we really want to expand the game – let’s remember the NRL is in a fight to the death with the AFL – they should do whatever they can to win people’s hearts and minds, » did he declare

« Origin is the only product that you could put into a documentary and travel around the world and which would have a real global interest »

He added that the NFL had a documentary series called Hard Knocks that the NRL could follow when it comes to team participation

« They have full access NFL tells teams you’re this year’s team, you have no choice NFL chooses a team

Gorden Tallis added his own experience which confirmed Kent’s point, revealing that Bennett never had an open attitude towards the media

« I remember the Brisbane Lions were popular in Brisbane, they had won four competitions in a row and were asked to be media, » he said

« I kept doing it and Wayne said, ‘Stop doing it’ I said, ‘I’m going to keep doing it’ because you had Leigh Matthews, who was the coach on the all news. evenings to promote your code

« Wayne didn’t get it and said, ‘My God they don’t want to hear from me’ Well, why did you write two books? If no one wants to hear your opinion, you can sell a book or go to lunch and get paid

« You have to promote the game All the money comes from the media This reported to Darius Boyd where he was going to press conferences and didn’t want to promote the game and said it wasn’t my job. part of it Make sure you get your sponsors known in the news « 

James Hooper pointed out the difference between Bennett’s approach and that of Blues coach Brad Fittler, who was incredibly open with the media in his camp

« If you look at someone like Freddy Fittler and the approach they take to the home state, it’s an open door policy, » he said. / p>

« His attitude is that if players can’t handle the questions journalists ask day after day before one of the biggest games of their careers, how are they going to handle the furnace that is the original Arena? »

« Freddy has this different, open-minded take on the rugby league and Wayne who’s still a hell of a good coach but very dated and caught up in the 1980s in so many ways »

Bennett, as the team’s coach, obviously wants to have the right to look after his side as he sees fit and would prefer the cameras not to come inside the camp, a point that also garnered support
