All we can do is support the team thru it's good and bad times.
Wests tigers will again rise to prominence, so if getting the wooden spoon is a massive wake up call, then so be it.
Good luck today fellas..

Sorry to say it but if the spoon and being cellar dwellers for a few years forces another merger with for eg Bulldogs then at least we could be competitive year in year out. We are only 1+1/4 joint venture now and my maggies were always weak so what alternative do we have. But I certainly hope the boys all turn up for 80 minutes and give Ivan and fans some hope. With Pacquaio-Horn fight in the same room same time at the club at least I will get a win somewhere.

I'm hoping for a win but this team haven't shown a lot of fight this year at all.

Really need to play our guts out and win this one. Hope Cleary has the pre game speech all sorted to fire everyone up.
Bit of face slapping and a Rocky movie, might help.

There will never be anymore mergers BBF.
From now on teams will either voluntarily relocate (for the money) or go bust. Personally, I can't see any team going bust these days seeing that the NRL basically give clubs their full salary cap money. That may all change in future if the TV deal is cut in half.

Stating the obvious but if we don't win today then I think we deserve the spoon,it not only serves as a reminder,but it also reflects on how poor not only the players have been this season but also our previous administration and coaches who have allowed the club to get to this state we now find ourselves in.

Who cares. This year has been a disaster either way. Is it really going to mean much finishing 14th or 15th? We're still a laughing stock.

We've been given hard time by the media lately. Imagine how much worse it'll be if we lose today, especially if we get flogged.

Unfortunately, predictable and sustained defeatism prevails on this forum :crazy
Understandably, it is hard to switch from fantasy league safe space bubble to the real life. :D
If any of our players, especially Tedesco or Woods, says anything that has 0.0001% negativity expressed here continuously, they would be pronounced heretics, traitors, enemies of the people.... in one word they would be tarred and feathered :D

I kind of like having never gotten the spoon.

That's six words but I agree with your sentiments.
