How many ways should I vent my Spleen?

Post by mikey » Sat 14 May, 2011 9:36 pm

I don't often get my dander up but the performance ub the first half was just %^&*().

Why does such a talented team need such a game every year to fire them up?

probably to make them realise that they have to compete for the entire 80 min.
and not assume its going to be a case of run onto the field, complete a set of six, and win the game.

Good question Mikey. The only problem is this year they've already had 2 other poor performances like this one (against chooks and broncos) and the motivation to fire up after those games only lasted a week or two. It's a huge problem with this team, and unfortunately, it is never addressed.

What is it about Soufffs that brings that sort of performance out in us? Abysmal display from all but McKinnon in the first half. Desperately need Gibbs and Ellis to tighten the defence.

, complete a set of six, and win the game.
Get real mate.
Do you think they do not know this?
Us mugs here know it...theyre sposed to be professionals coached by a supercoach.

Things look way too comfortable at times....we go good for a while then slip back, that is slackness and laziness, misattention to detail and poor mental attitude

Poor mental attitude probably sums up that first 40 minutes of misery. This happens all too often unfortunately.

Its this attitude every 2nd or 3rd week that makes me realise we are miles away from the top sides. They at times lose but when were bad we are inept.

just speaking my mind.
for quite some time, I've tried to be pleasant about losing.
not anymore, it just plain disappointing, as we know they can demolish most teams.
no more beating around the bush.
I was under impression constructive criticism was a good thing.

Thats not constructive criticism.....youre treating them like babies.
Do you seriously think they need reminding they have to play the full 80????????
Seriously?
Its freeking automatic!!!
Shouldnt even have to be told, reminded....us mugs know it....yet they need a flogging to ram it home!
For years this garbage has gone on and on and on and what do we do time after frikkin time?
Extend the coaches contract.
We are a joke.

Why would a new coach instill anything different to this playing Roster....?

Like you say it's been the same for years...inconsistant
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

LOL Yes Alf, we are! Let's bring in a shrink to sort their heads out, or at least a sports psychologist/motivator. I wonder what Roy Maters is doing these days?

When a player here or there shows inconsistancy and just doesnt turn up sometimes then yes, its the players fault.......but if an entire TEAM doesnt turn up time and time again like us over the past 8 years, then its the coaches fault. Bennett gets praised for instilling consistancy to the Dragons, so IMO Sheens gets a the same "praise" for intilling inconsistancy for us.

The odd individual mistake is not the coaches fault, but a teams attitude, mental application and preperation comes from the top, so i have no problem laying this part of our downfall on Sheens

Yeah after a loss you guys always do.Might i remind you we run 3rd last year and this year we in the running....

Its the individual simple errors that cost us sirro.Who said it had anything to do with preparation.

Dragons have been consistent before bennett come they dont have stand out players like us they have team players that arent that flashy but get the job done.Thats not bennett brown also did that but didnt get them to the grand final

Attitude mate, its our attitude that let us down. Getting owned around the ruck and being made to look like fools doesnt come from the errors u speak of, they come from attitude.

When youve heard all the same routines, monologues, speeches, the same talks and the same threats over and over and over for 7 or 8 years....its probably difficult to be inspired.
Theyve all heard it all before.....most havent heard it any other way.
City & country jerseys are as far as we go
