Benji literally looked like he was trying to have us lose.

The whole team is disinterested if you ask me, they look like they want Mad Monday to start this Monday.

We will do nothing as long as Benji is in our side!
Yes i know you think i'm crazy, and he is brilliant but the terrible far outweighs the brilliant or even good.
He is diamonds or rocks, mostly rocks and sometimes crusher dust.
At the end of his career he will have a great highlights package, but i could put together a blunders package that would go for 60 times longer.
To me he is like the Harlem Globetrotters, just a show of skills and tricks that's very entertaining to watch but cant really compete against real teams. He is a magician and he has bluffed his way into being a rugby league player when he is just simply a great touch footy player.
There is no doubt he can play but consistently at a high level is what makes great players. Benji will NEVER be one in my eyes. And because our team is soooo reliant on his form we will never be a threat as long as he is around. We will also continue to be inconsistent.
I know most Tigers fans think the sun shines out of his behind, and quite possibly believe the exact opposite of what i do, but i feel the gloss over the last few seasons is starting to rub off and more and more people are starting to become frustrated with the inconsistent play becoming all too consistent.
My opinion.

1 of the legends of basketball was a Globe Trotter (Wilt Chamberlain)..
Globe Trotters started off as a competition team who turned to entertainment after building up big leads.
Cant go wrong with 98% win record over 22,000 games :lol:

On a serious note.. Im a big fan of Benji, i think his defense has been great this year. The only issue in attack is the team relys on Benji for a miracle play on each set. If someone like Miller can come into the squad & take control, directing the ball on his terms then we would be less predictable.

If we used Benji as a decoy how storm use Slater, we could nail so many more tries through weak defensive decisions made by the opposition.

You know i'm referring to the travelling exhibition years of the Globe Trotters.
Benji is a show off that plays for his own highlight reel. Our team will never make a grand final as long as Benji is around mark my words.

I agree he is the most exciting every 6th week, the rest is very frustrating sometimes hilarious and embarrassing. Diamonds or rocks. Fun to watch for non Tigers supporters i suppose who probably only remember the freakish things he does, but not for me who watches every week and constantly see crap from the so called best player in the world.

You really have no idea, last year we were only one point from making the grand final on the back of Benji. He has captained New Zealand to series wins against the odds, contributed largely to us already winning a premiership as well as taking out Golden Boot last year for the best player in the world. I think it's quite obvious he is much more then a bag of tricks and is truly one of the legends.

Ben Smith gave Benji 15-20m start? Not on the footage I saw - Smith was always ahead of Marshall and had the benefit of running an angled line. I do agree though that Marshall was not fully fit and that a fit Marshall would have scored.

Maybe 5 to 10 start, he wasnt ahead and as such an angled run is no benefit

We'll have to disagree on this. Smith always looked ahead of Marshall to me

x 3 .. no one can be at their best week in week out, hell the knives were out for lockyer not that long ago and where are those doomsdayers now. all i know is that other teams regard benji as our main danger every week. marshall has natural abilities that 95 % of other f/g's can only dream about !
I dislike sowfs immensely
