Best thing that could have happened...

Post by Luke » Sat 07 Aug, 2010 11:24 pm

I know everybody is pretty disappointed in our effort tonight, including me. But after the loss I sat and thought about it and maybe this is the best thing that could have happened to us just before the finals. Maybe a cut this deep, happening twice against the same team might just bring the Tiger's passion back. If the Tigers won or drew tonight they probably wouldn't have thought about it too much... instead they're going to have a good look at themselves.

Put it this way, we're in exactly the same position to when we lost to them 50-10. Everybody was on here crying about the game and saying we have no hope this year. What did we do? Win four in a row.

The frustration and anger of losing this game just might bring the best out of the Tigers. We have four games remaining, can we do the same as we did when we lost 50-10 against the Rabbits? I have every faith we can.

We need to win next week and it needs to be massive.

A loss or a close win won't do it, we need to flog the Panthers and it needs to continue into the finals.

best thing? this game could get souths into the 8 and us missing out.. we would have been on 30 points them on 22 with 4 weeks to go and they are the 9th place team. now that game has closed to 28 24 with 4 games to go. I know the NRL wants a close comp so hands out $$% to the refs but this isnt a good thing for us

I don't think for and against should be a target. A strong 80 minute performance with a win. We need wins cause they are all you are after at the moment. Some strong 80 minute pefromances could see us on a purple patch.

Im afraid the way I feel is the best thing that can happen is we miss the eight and hopefully the coach can boot off...I doubt he'd stick to his word though.

I hate feeling like this....Im so over the way this club is run now, I want to support them i want them to win, but when It gets to the stage where I want failure in order to see a change from the top to the bottom...its sad.
Ive never been like this.

A heartbreaking and frustrating loss. We're frustrated and down in the dumps at the moment, but it won't compare to how the players feel. Hopefully they reflect on this positively and come out with the right attitude against Penrith next week.

We will be making up the numbers if we make the top eight.. it's definently not the best thing that could of happened. We were desperately out of form, finding it extremely hard to put a team away, this was a our chance.. yet again, we showed we can't put a Souths team, without a Host of big names away. Schoolboy errors, terrible tackling, i mean imagine if Taylor, Burgess, Crocker ETC were actually there... we would have been smacked by 50 again... Sheens, please leave i don't care that were coming 4th or whereever we are... we need a new coach, new fresh start.

That's what I'm saying. If we played like we did tonight in a finals game there is no way we would have won. But, hopefully after this loss, it will really give the players a chance to take a good look at themselves and realise the lack of effort, passion, desire and commitment they are possessing just isn't good enough anymore. Do you think that if we won tonight the players would have thought about this? Probably not and they would have continued to play like this for the rest of the season.

It's already working. I really believe we are going to come out firing against the Panthers and really play with a lot of passion for the first time this year...

I agree with you,
we believed that we could just turn up every week flat and get the win..
might be the kick up the ass that we needed!
I also think well give it to the Panthers next week.
