Not just that, but the final dropped pass. Less about the fact that he dropped it, more about his reaction.

I believe you can tell a lot about a footballer's attitude and concentration by their on-field reactions. It's too tough and energetic a game for most players to maintain an ice-cool demeanour for 80 minutes.

Blake Ayshford has the look of a zombie no matter what he is doing, and it becomes evident in the 1%ers where he looks at loose footballs rather than diving on them, gives up when beaten for pace, doesn't look too concerned when the club concedes a try.

Old Brett Seymour had that classic cover chase of Benji in 2005 playing for Brisbane, where he gives up without even a dive even though he has made it within a tight body length.

This is the body language of losers.

This is the body language of Nathan Milone. In the way he gives up, appears unsurprised by the mistakes he makes. He dropped that last pass and just looked tired, looked like he had given up.
There's an old saying, "play the way you train"

I guarantee if you we're to head down and watch the boys at training it'd be all shiss & giggles.
Everyone social media photo I have ever seen of a training session has the boys smiling & carrying on.

If the attitude is poor at training it's going to reflect on game day.

Players need to be held accountable. If a player is underperforming the coaching staff & selection committee need to make an example of them, regardless of their status.

Until this happens the playing group will continue to go through the motions.

Just saw Addo Carr walking into the ground and up into the changerooms.

Although in saying that the only other players I've seen around so far are Buchanan, Ballin, and Woods.

Time to take the tin foil off and see the truth, Harvey.
Taylor is responsible for picking the team and getting results - and the board has said on many occasions he has their full support to do as he chooses.
I am no JT supporter but you would wonder why, when faced with getting the sack (which will happen if we keep losing games), he keeps picking players that don't do their job.
He needs to do SOMETHING - we lose this week and the phones will be running hot to people looking to replace him.
Careful some people will do anything to shift blame from JT......

He has got the coaches we wanted and gets to pick the 17 each week.

He is digging his own grave at the selection table.

Fans would get behind him more if he backed up the tough talk and dropped a number of under performing players.
I have to say I agree with this somewhat. How long do you persist with players that simply don't have it, or are not living up to their promise?
Hard to disagree... Though I do not see very many unconditional JT supporters... If any.

Felise over Chee Kam makes sense as he is a recognized Prop. But Milone over Chee Kam in the centres is lunacy

Surely there must be something wrong with Michael Chee Kam? Attitude or what? He's been to 2-3 clubs since playing U20s for Canberra and has played like...no games, despite being a genuine star at juniors.

One of my favourite players to watch few years back in that Canberra team, along with Milford, Cornish and Edrick Lee.
Extremely frustrated fan. Try not to let my negativity get to you.

Congrats to Addo-Carr and Felise on making their debut. Hope they both go well but I just can't see us getting the bacon today.

hope it's a typo or something. i'd rather halatau in the middle and siro on the edges.

big game for ava and siro. they both have to pull their weight today.

They'll get enough bacon on their pizzas if they lose

I just hope they can find a way to steal the two points ;)

Gee I wonder what edge the Storm are going to be directing most of their attack down today...

Storm edges are weak too. Debutant, Koro, Kennar and Hampton. Not good at all.

I have seen young Milone play several times and he has never looked other than, at best, a journeyman of non threatening proportions. We're just lucky Chambers is out for the Storm today. Maybe we can still get them but I'm more hopeful than optimistic
