Probably won't be during my lifetime, sadly :cry:
That is it, our supporters make excuses for everything bad that happens, happy with mediocrity, the team usually obliges with crap performances.
We had everything to play for, we were 4 points out of the 8 with 2 winnable games and the bye coming up. We had just come off 2 poor second half performances, which we should have won both games. And we come up with that crap, absolutely mind numbingly inept performances.

It's hard not to be despondent after seeing the same thing happen again. You'd deadset think Canberra were Brisbane circa 1993. 0-44 in the last hour. At home. If they got to place us more often they'd be guaranteed minor premiers every year. They must think it's all a giggle. Where's the pride from our lot?

Every random pass Canberra threw was hitting. It was circus football and they do that occasionally. That being said, we helped them by waiting for them to come to us. We had no defensive linespeed and were giving them ample time to come forward where our players were just grabbing them and letting them offload at will. Once they got on the front foot from second phase they just rolled forward and started throwing long passes and smashing us on the fringes where Aloiai and Rochow were defending. Firsts things first, both of those guys are out of the side. They were atrocious.

Because they were playing side to side and had us shot to pieces pretty much the entire second half random players were defending all across the line which threw out all of our defensive patterns. It also tired us out completely. Guys like Twal and Eisenhuth just had nothing left at the end and couldn't contribute.

The fact that Fonua and Lawrence both went down exposed that side of the field entirely. The defensive systems that have helped Brooks improve were gone within 5 minutes. That's almost forgiveable.

The blame imo must fall on the experienced forwards that didn't manage to pick the Tigers up when Lawrence went down. Packer, Matulino and Taylor should have been able to steel them. They are three very experienced New Zealand rep forwards. There is no way guys like Liam Knight and Elliot Whitehead should be treating them like chumps but they did.

That being said, Canberra were simply amazing in that second half. They clicked. They slayed us. They didn't give us barely a single chance. We just helped them along.

Not a good loss but at least Cleary knows now that this team don't have much under the hood. I'd say we've been winning up until now because of the systems not the players. As soon as we lost two key members of the system we got obliterated.

Don't even have to mention that Thompson just can't tackle these guys in open field because he shouldn't really have to, but he has to be able to when he has to and he can't.

So! The scapegoats? I don't think it's a good idea to only pick one or two. I think he needs to take a scythe to the team to make a point.

Rochow - Out, no question.
Thompson - Back to the wing. Mbye straight in.
Packer - To the bench.
Taylor - Stint in reggies.
Grant - Out of the side and on the XPT to Newcastle tomorrow.
Aloiai - Back to reggies.
McIlwrick - Back to reggies.
Fonua - Looks to be a broken arm so he's out.
Lawrence - I think he'll be ok.
Matulino - By the skin of his teeth stays in the side.

Making the next side.

There is no pride Yoss, yet we have plenty making excuses for them, no wonder the players dont have a dig when the heat is on

Nothing gets under my skin more than seeing our players smiling and high fiving the opposition after they’ve just dogged it like that.

I saw Scotty Prince playing in a touch tournament at South Tweed last wk/end , we could do with some of his smart halfback options

There are no other words to describe that other than it was an absolute embarrassment. Forget the top eight for yet another season, bottom four here we come.

Don’t know how any of our players could crack a smile after that.
Maybe they are just playing for the money and don’t give a hoot about the club or the fans.
PS I don’t include Lawrence in that.

Living in Canberra, the Raiders game is always a massive game for me. The 89 GF, the loss in the snow around 2000/2001, and that that year where we had two golden point losses to them, personally I dread playing them. Yes we beat them in a semi, yes we did beat them once by about 40, but the last few years has been atrocious.

I called for them to be forced to run laps of the oval after last year's pathetic performance, finals on the line, and we go to pieces. Well today was even worse. Sure we had injuries, but so what? Where's the passion? Where's the motivation to not let down their mates. An opposition player goes to the bin and again the opposition scores? They let down their fans. It's their livelihood, it's a performance based job and the performance is nowhere near good enough.

2 wins from our last 9. Eels are better than that. Wonder if Moses MBye has actually signed yet, gee I hope so. Would love to make the finals, but even more so, I would love to actually feel that we deserve to make the finals.

A week off? No way, I'd send them to hell and back during that week, and see just who does make it back.

No, really? I didn't see that. That's pathetic, that's Mitchell Moses-like behaviour, and I don't have any lower insult than that.

Forget it for the next 3 years. That is the minimum we have signed some of the bog average imports we have for
