This team NEVER learns

Post by hybrid_tiger » Sat 07 Aug, 2010 10:11 pm

Getting taken over the sideline on tackle one

Regathering a chip kick then throwing an unnecessary pass and tackle three, 10 meters out

Failing to stop offloads even with three or four players in a tackle

Showing no aggression or enthusiasm when it matters most

These are the same things that occur year in, year out and nothing ever changes. We are like a sick, old broken record.

We are a disgrace and nothing ever changes.

Your 1st 2 points are crucial. We played our hand and one. We than attempted to double up and it failed once again. Why don't they learn?

We don't learn because nothing is done to address the issues.

A few weeks ago Sheens said in a post match conference that we needed to cut out those silly plays, i.e pushing passes.

We have done this for the past five trekking years, why hasn't anything been done about it? Why do we just make the same mistakes over and over and over again??

I guess taking risks is part of Sheens plan? There is no other answer. Otherwise these risk-takers wouldn't be playing.

That was the most disgraceful loss I have ever seen. Mind numbing. We won't win again this year after that.

Not only that, the team really lacked structure, fitness and passion as the game went into golden point. The reverse was true for the Rabbitohs. Without those 3 things forget the semis.

Yep I agree. If I am at home screaming at the TV for Beau Ryan to go in field or to say Souths are going to go from dummy half most of the time or to lock up the ball its amazing the blokes on the field don't realise these things.

Souths didn't play that well. They were just more committed and had less mind numbingly bonehead plays than us.

Thats right, they didnt give up and made less crucial errors. They weren't brilliant. Imagine what their full side would have done to us....

Either argue the point made or don't bother posting, seriously.

I like the Tigers because when they are playing, it's entertaining. They might use those low % plays, but sometimes that's what pays off when nothing else is going right. Would you rather want Tigers to be more like Dragons and go Tackle 1,2...5 kick, chase. x 10. Then wait for a mistake and score? Sounds boring to me mate.

I don't care how boring or uninteresting we play, I want to WIN.

We might look good and be everyone's second favourite team, but that doesn't win comps or help us make the finals does it?

Do you also find it entertaining when we throw away games like these and miss the finals for four (soon to be five) years running?

Is that entertaining?

You know what is entertaining. Winning. We aren't winners, we are losers. We have a losers mentality and this hasn't changed and hasn't looked like changing.

Those low percentage plays come off about 10% of the time. Guess what mate? We've made the semi finals once in ten years. 10%.

Getting bundled over the sideline on the first is moronic. Nothing exciting about watching that for five years.
