The win was nothing to get excited about and I wasn't surprised at all that it ended up a battle. The two teams were coming of huge losses, there was a lack of form or talent and the Knights also love playing us. However, there were some positives. Taylor, Woods and Aloiai all played well in the forwards and Ado-Carr showed flashes of brilliance out wide.

I watch footy to be entertained. That game had nothing. If the 2 points got us into the 8 then you'd be happy but what did the win achieve?

Moved us above the Warriors and 5pts clear of the spoon 1 win out of the 8..
The 8? Dreams are free i guess.
Yes, but there's some pretty ordinary teams still above Wests. This has to be one of the most skewed seasons in recent memory. There are only 3, maybe 4 teams that can win it and the rest are making up the numbers.

Too simplistic

Does it offend you so much that people give a brutally honest, warts and all description of the game.
We have to watch to give an opinion.
Don't you like honest opinions?
Does the truth hurt that much?
We aren't always boring... We sometimes are good... Don't be offended by people calling a spade a spade.

This is the beauty of sport..... The unknown... The win occasionally against the odds......

. That's why we watch

I only watched the second half but I thought there was some improvement. Team looks stronger with mck, good ball control, but more second phase play.....but still not dominant in defence and last tackle options still average.

We need to get a few wins on the Trott to breed some confidence

We watch cos we're passionate.

We criticize cos we're passionate and we want better.

A win is a win, but that doesn't mean you should automatically be pleased with the performance. How many times do coaches blow up about their team's performance after wins? Because they know if they don't get their act together, a better side will lap them. And if anyone thinks there was anything in yesterdays game that can give you confidence against the Broncos then i would have to ask if you actually watched it.

Yesterday wasn't as bad as everyone is making out, we got the win and there are still some signs of life. Sure we have a lot to work on but we held a better structure in defence on our edges, our long kicking game was good, Taylor showing his hand that he has the ability to be a really good ball playing lock that tackles everything that moves, some of our forwards made some good metres going forward but it needs to be more of it.

Our missed tackle stat is poor to say the least and needs to be worked on, our short kicking game is terrible by far the worst I've seen this year, we give away far too many penalties still and gift the opposition too many easy get outs and our game plan in attack is still so predictable and 1 dimensional.

The top 4 sides are streets ahead of everyone else but I think we can compete with any of the other teams if we turn some things around and put it together on the day.

Not the greatest performance today but a win, I am excited watching ET and JAC a few of the younger forwards .Never understand myself why the negativity after a win but that s life I suppose ,we all have to realise that there is quite a few players in this team that are either over the hill or just not up to scratch but the club is bound to them and until they are moved on what you see is what you are going to get enjoy!
Some of our fans' attitude is pretty poor when you consider that the Parra fans are still motivated with zero points at this stage of the season.

Parra will likely finish above us, I'd be motivated if I were them too.

yes i am so offended...

anyone could have told you this would be a crap game. it was called a 'spoonbowl' pre-game for a reason. we're not a good time i have no clue what people expected... another broncos vs cows showdown?? :crazy

we havent had a good win all year, or even performance. if thats bored you all year then its safe to assume yesterdays would too. if you want a crystal ball - stop watching until we become good again. you can hop on the bandwagon then
