2017 lack of interest

Post by king sirro » Sat 11 Feb, 2017 1:46 pm

Anyone else feeling underwhemed about the 2017 season starting?

Dont get me wrong, im looking forward to round one, but my interest is way down on previous years. Im quite concerned about how little im bothered by it all. The nines and the all stars games certainly reminded me at how boring the game can be. I know they aren't true indicators of the real comp but the video ref stuff in the all stars game just had me syaing all over again "this game really has gone bad". Last year i only ever watched the Tigers games. I always had the other games on but didn't focus on it too much, head in phone, cooking dinner etc etc. I fear that will increase in 2017.

Someone give me a reason why the game will improve in 2017 please, i need it.

A few Tigers wins will most likely change my thinking though.

This is actually the most hyped I've felt about a season in a few years. If we happen to lose more than one of the big 4 to another club though, my interest will diminish significantly.

The club needed to bolster its forward strength and did not..it is going to be last season all over again with most clubs owning the forward pack .There will be high lights yes but I really do not get the feeling that it is going to be a great year.....reality for me is a finishing point around 10 th place ,the team just has not got the power in the forwards to sustain a long run of victorys just my opinion.

While the Tigers performances are taken into account with my post, its more about the game of rugby league itself. From top to bottom, from commentator to commentator, from coach to coach, from meathead player stuffing up publicly to another meathead player doing the same, i just dont find much positive in it all.

Channel 9 strangles the life out of any game. The commentating last night was as woeful as ever. I found last year more enjoyable due to all games being on Fox. Cant wait for it to start.

What's the idea of that twit Bracey being a commentator.
What a joke. I'd even rather Pops Warren ,

I felt that way before the start of 2016 season but then got foxtel put on and ended up watching nearly every game on there. The channel 9 broadcast sucks these days

I'm pumped for this year.

As geo said tipping comps and fantasy help with getting you interested in the other 7 games each week as well

I agree 100% Sirro.
The game has become boring. Very predictable, I call it tackle touch football. I taped last nights game and even the great JT who I love couldn't stop me from fast forwarding to any period where the attacking team was close to the line to score.

The only game of football I can watch now are WT games and SOO and I watch while fast forwarding any game I have a bet on. Without monetry involvement i won't watch. Even when watching WT games I do not get the highs I used to get from a win but I also do not get the lows when we lose. Care factor is very little. Like you a couple of wins or even a season or two of the WT improving may change that

The day spite was pushed out of the game was the day it became boring. The day players started socializing with other player s from other teams was when you knew most of the players were there for the pay and not care how they play.

Yep, they're just so whingey on channel 9. Goulds attitude of tearing everything down has just spread to the rest of the commentators.

Johns penchant for giggling like a pre-pubescent girl is also stomach turning.

Johns and Fittler are simply mental midgets and are incapable of any analytical commentary that doesn't involve the bleeding obvious,or alternatively their long ago past deeds.That may include last weeks misemeanours...if they can remember that far back...but who cares?
Against these guys Gould is indeed relatively smarter,but believes each of his words are pearls of wisdom ,but theyre mostly condescending rubbish and full of his own self importance.
The free to air game deserves a fresh commentary team...Fox is so much more watchable.
Nine still thinks NRL coverage is targetting Fattys footy show audience,and that's the core issue.NRL has a much broader audience(and ratings)than the Footyshow,but that too(NRL) be on the same slippery slope unless quality of commentary improves

I friggin love footy, can't wait every year when it comes back. Watch it with my kids, watch it with my Dad, watch it with my mates. It defines the weekend, I've put the Tigers games in my calendar and we need to schedule around those.

And every year it's the same, maybe even a bit more pleased for footy as I get older and older.

Tigers are a chance every year since they became Wests Tigers, that always gives me good vibes come round 1.
