I go back to the 60's and the term "mighty Tigers" was used by us Balmain supporters then, quite often as a term of derision if we were useless.
I am sure that it goes back much further than that

Way back just after the Earth had cooled when mighty Tigers roamed the world. Lol

I had a Martin Lurther King moment when i had a dream we were 1/11,bloody nightmare really but i still went to Homebush that evening to see WT outplay the Rabbits,I came away thinking if we play like that we may win more than we lose this season.

I know it doesn't really matter this early.

but looks a strong possibility if we get done!

Lock it in Eddie!
Speaking of Eddie, I watched slumdog millionaire for the first time last night... good movie.

On topic, I imagine we will be last after this round, but who cares? I'm not worried about getting the spoon, there's a few teams worse than us. That doesn't mean we'll make the 8 though.
Year of last finals appearance:
2018 - Roosters, Storm, Rabbitohs, Sharks, Panthers, Broncos, Dragons, Warriors
2017 - Eels, Sea Eagles, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers

If the raiders win today it will be the first time since 1973 that every team has at least one win, 3 weeks into the comp

I felt during trials to that an even comp was coming up. Could be good for us if good enough. A good for and against is important and we put that in last week.
Anyway no excuses now.
Coach, halves and others will need to perform or else.
Apart from Woods and Tedesco everybody else is expected to lift.
We can make a statement today!

After alot of bad luck last year against Storm thinking of a sizeable wager next weekend.
However, I want the team to show a huge performance in a couple of hours.
No excuses.

Last place? Yes the team deserves it especially management and coaches. The top 4 of the club also deserve it by selfishly holding up negotiations the club could have had with potential new class players.

At this rate I reckon 1000 is on the cards for the season ....

Newcastle are having a red hot go every week & saints about to beat the defending premiers. Wooden spoon is not such a far fetched idea now
