I think he knows deep down he is finished and just playing out time on his career.

There is no swagger there anymore. Even with some weight off he still looks slow.

I think everyone knows it tbh. Even the commentators don't see him as the same player he use to be. He's probably at the same level of a Peter Wallace, or someone similar to that.

I don't know about that , I reckon he could have "your crap" tattooed 16 times across his skull by his fellow players and he'd still think he had been robbed of 3 Dally M points and expect a 10/10 from Rugby League Week :lol:

He just hasn't been very good since the debacle against the Warriors in the finals in 2011. Completely lost the plot and the Tigers made the smartest decision in their history in not re-signing him.

Did we make a smart decision??

Or were we just lucky he decided not to take up our offer??

Serious question.

He started deteriorating when he forgot he was a fantastic ball runner and starting thinking he was Andrew Johns and a brilliant playmaker. Maybe the coaching was the problem, who knows? He still seems to favour the highlight reel play and go for the line break every time they shift it. How many of his passes hit the deck tonight? I still think he's got something to offer but Widdop should be there main playmaker and just let Benji do the ad lib stuff. I certainly wouldn't want to be paying the sort of coin they are nor the flow on effects that produced.

I said when he first signed with them that he wouldn't see out his contract, and i still don't think he will.

In NRL Fantasy he score only 15 pts >> Equal lowest tonight

ON the other hand Widdop was excellent, the only shining light for the drags

I still have a soft spot for Benji, but wow am I happy he is in the red V

Serious question.
Mayer doesn't get many accolades on here but you can thank him for Benji's leaving. Humphreys put the big deal forward, then left. Mayer didn't offer the sink. Everyone worried over losing sponsors with Benji gone. I think we're doing ok.
