If there was fairness the last round would be like the EPL where every game kicks off at the same time . So nobody knows the score needed .

If it comes down to F/A for 8th spot between us & the broncos in rd 25 we play Thursday night & the Broncos are the last game on Sunday .

Broncos are never last.... They're always first or 2nd.
Funny that... Lucky for them

I think playing the Thursday is an advantage for us. We play our game knowing we put our best foot forward. Broncos play chasing a win by x amount of points and it is extra pressure on them.

So much to happen between now and then.

I would agree with you but when considering what we have done to the top teams then don't deny our boys the back up. Look what they done to Sutton's 300th game party. Then to bully Raiders. My saying in chess is that where there is life there is hope and it sure pays off some time.

If I was a bookie I’d have us 1.50 and the Broncos 2.50.
At the moment Sportsbet has the Broncos at $1.20 and Tigers at $3.50 (after The Tigers being $9.00 before the Raiders game).
So is that $2.30 to the refs?

no.
I did back the tigers to make the eight back in round six at 2.10.,so im still cheering.
hopefully the wayne bennett saga will derail their season.
I do find it ironic that wayne bennett is being such a drama queen with his impending departure from the broncos when he has finished the careers of so many.

I hope they do, I backed em to make the 8 after we beat the roosters at $5 and watched my cashout option go from 75% down to almost nothing.

Sadly I don’t think so.

Winning the last 3 games will be a hard task, and even then our for and against will count against us.

I think that the dodgy decision against the broncos will be amplified at the end of round 25.

I would like to be pleasantly surprised, but am waiting for the let down. It is like standing on the trapdoor at the gallows hoping for the mechanism to fail.

Sadly no but would love to be surprised. I think if we can overcome the Dragons this week then maybe , just not sure if we can beat the hype of going in as favorites this week which will define this possibility.

I voted NO because I think we need to win all three games and I don’t think we will.

Sadly, the Manly game worries me more than Dragons and Souths - because we tend to lose games we are ‘supposed’ to win.

Geez, everyone is so sad, so sad.
Is anyone woebegone, or forlorn?

I voted yes because I'm a Wests Tigers supporter and what's the point of that if I don't support them for the win.
So, I'm not glum or gloomy.
Go Tigers.

Wish I could vote Yes, but we've been in this situation too many times before and failed.

Let's hope Ivan has got the team to turn that corner.

Hey, all you NO voters should get down there to Leichhardt and boo the team.
Put up some Wests Tigers are mediocre losers banners. Make your vote count and make sure your predictions come true!

I don't think the NRL can afford to have Brisbane miss out. So I expect the Broncs will get every 50/50 call go their way over the next 3 weeks.
In short, I think we'll just miss it.

Just like the previous 333 weeks.
