Pretenders

Post by innsaneink » Fri 02 Jul, 2010 9:45 pm

Our position does not reflect our play, our team, our football. It reflects the state of the competition i guess to an extent....

Its false.

If the Broncos had their big three we'd have been slaughtered...it wouldve been another souths game.

So what how often have we been in the opposite position and not made the 8...er alot.so if we win ugly make the 8 bring it on.

We deserved to win because we won.

Yep. All season we really have not hit form.

We looked slow, dumb and unorganised out there today.

If we remain in the comp we can turn it around and win the whole thing but geez we are running out of time to start playing up to the level we need to be.

We can't beat Saints, we won't beat the Broncos with Lockyer.
Great we are winning the ugly ones, but real contenders.....nah.

So your dirty that we won? Rather we played great/solid and lost?
We get 2 points, stay near the top and work on improving next week......

We're winning the ugly ones against teams that are terrible.
I really hope that we can lift when we actually need to. Judging by tonight i'm not that confident though.
On the bus or under it!

yes, we played ordinary [and that is being kind] but we pulled the 2 points out the fire.

They had all the ball, all the field position and all the calls from the men from opsm.

So you would rather we lost then tonight?

our forwards were dominated tonight.
possession first half was 60-40 broncos way, thats gonna take a lot out of the tank defence wise.
penalty count was against us we didnt get anything, not even for that blatant shepard.
both teams making plenty of mistakes.
i'll take the win with glee, we got robbed ealrier in the year when roosters scored in the last minute i guess it evens it up then.

Yep, it goes both ways.

It's good that we got the win, we just need to shape up for next week or we are in trouble.

I dont think it makes up for the roosters loss at all...we were pathetic that day as well.

We have been crap all year, bar a few halves of footy that were inspired. Everything is stale about this side.

On current form when we hit the last few rounds we will cop some atrocious floggings.

When one team keeps dropping the ball...it means the other team has the ball

Oh yes....the refs...that only goes one way huh?

Id rather we EARN a win....not get lucky
The Broncos deserved it...we didnt

You people can look at every goddamn thing bar tonite and make excuses, it doesnt change tonite tho...thats an ostrich mentality, stick ur head in the sand and pretend alls well
Tonite tells me weve really gone nowhere at all in five bloody years

The men from opsm were atrocious tonight.

It took to the 70 minute mark for our second penalty. They had 6 to that point in time. Where they so much better discliplined? I dont think so.

There was a blatant knock on by them the tackle before their try after half time.

I agree Ink, we looked disinterested and played very poorly but I think you may be a tad harsh on the boys tonight.

Time will tell.
