it's a head shaker at times, when we're winning, it's generally the same few people on, when we're under the pump, we seem to get more posters.........and generally with "end of the world" predictions.
I've been saying we have the most fickle fans for years. When we lose the forum is filled with experts predicting the wooden spoon for us and posting how pathetic this club is. When we win, suddenly those experts disappear and we have the usual minimal amount of guys posting how great we are.

Look, tonight, the Roosters would have beaten any team with that performance. They're coming off four straight unlucky loses and were determined to steam roll anyone who stood in their path. I thought we played well 65 minutes of that game. The last 15 minutes where the flood gates opened has made everyone want to throw themselves off a bridge.

Yes, we could have played better but Im not prepared to say we're pathetic or say we're a bottom four team. If it makes some people feel better about themselves to post that kind of garbage, I would think you'll know your place when we make the semis this year.

When reality knocks on the door it comes as a surprise to some, young players ..plodders ...some old heads make up a team that want to win but just will be unable to compete with the upper types of the comp.Reality is if you want to win every week maybe look at supporting a different team .... These guys want to win but are at the other end of the table unfortunately.

Yeah, there's plenty of unrealistic optimists among us, but mostly, I just think we want to see our team have a red hot go each week and not look like a bunch of amateurs. Bad or low percentage decisions destroy us all the damn time. Will they ever learn? Probably not....sigh.

Its not the last 15 minutes that were the issue

It was that 8 minutes in the 1st half

If we were still in the game we would of hang in their adrenaline does that , probably still lost though

We had nothing to play for and had run out of puff

It really is frustrating.

Makes viewing this forum after a loss so unbearable but it's just habit to login now so we have to put up with it for a few days until the new week.

I wonder where all the pessimists go when we win ? Why aren't they posting then ? It's as if tney can't wait for us to fall..

And i thought no one could be worse then dragqueen fans...

He doesn't seem hungry for a guy who's playing his 3rd game. I would expect a young guy trying to make his mark to be everywhere- wanting the ball in every set.

Do you agree or not?

No I wouldn't expect a centre to want the ball every set. We do have a game plan.

I don't think he was the worst on the field, if you're going to point the finger at somebody, why him?
Personal issue with him or something?

lol why would i have an issue with him.. you do realise i posted that right after the game or during the game- no one thinks clearly when they're watching the game. AGAIN, do you agree with me or not? i hate it when people nitpick crap like this but don't give their own opinion... what's your opinion? DO YOU AGREE OR NOT?

Willow I just think that they should have showed that they wanted to be out there. They looked careless.
