Yes, being a tigers fan is like that point in time when you lean back on a chair too far and are about to fall backwards, only to catch yourself at the last second. That feeling lasts on average for 80 minutes per week for the average Tigers fan.

Are tigers fans less worthy because they can't take a bad loss? No. Is it a sign of their complete lack of foresight and reflective skills? Absolutely.

What a terible painful loss. Honestly, if you were a coach would there be a better time for a wake-up call like this than round 16 with a bye to come? I swear Sheens plans these midseason slumps only for the side to suddenly catch on fire at the end of the season. Will it happen again? Who knows? Can we bank on irate fans on here all of sudden blindly gushing with praise for the same players they ask to be dropped this week? Inevitable. Is the solution dropping lote, cash, heigno, Blake? You are kidding.

I know fans will be filled with vitriolic hyperbole but I just hope that nobody pays attention.
Spot on. But that's our right. If we weren't gutted, and upset by this then what type of fans would we be? Do I want changes to the team? Yes, right now I'm pencilling Hassan Saleh for a comeback on Lotes wing after the bye. But this time next game after Lote scores 5 tries I'll be on the bandwagon to re sign him. It's the life of a fan who bleeds black gold and white. I love this team, I love that our teams merged instead of Paramatta and my Tigers. We were the ugly ducklings of the NRL and no one wanted us in. So we went and won a bloody premiership instead, not just a premiership but the most relevant and exciting premiership in a long time. We as fans have been through hell watching our respective teams basically held to ransom to merge whilst teams like Melbourne cheapen the comp with their tainted cheating ways. Proud Balmain and Western Suburbs teams were destroyed to accommodate the Storm, Gold Coast, etc and we have a reason to be so much more passionate than other fans for this reason. I get crushed over performances like tonight, but yes I will be back in two weeks, cheering on the same players I'm ragging on tonight. Let us vent whilst we are still pi$$ed off enough to give a damn.

It didn't have to be this way. Why didn't we poach Hasler?

I can't believe I actually thought this team had matured

We will never ever learn

I'm so angry after watching that disgusting performance

I dont know whether to laugh or cry when i read these threads, we were poor sure....but all this stuff about never being so embarrassed blah, blah, blah.

We were down and switched off, they were desperate and caught fire and we got pumped. We went through a period where we just couldnt get the ball.

2 losses is hardly reason to slit your wrists, here is a scoop, in the NRL all the teams have reasonable rosters, and no team can play there best each week, sometimes you lose to teams you should beat,

The bye has come at a good time as far Im concerned.

the problem is that it happens every year. and at least twice a season when they completely clock off defensively and get 40 put on them. you don't have to hit rock bottom to realise that you need to play for 80 minutes.

This is the passion I'm talking about. If we as fans can get this emotional about a loss, why can't the players get pumped for a mere 80 minutes out of their week. The boys need to take a massive long hard look at themselves over the next two weeks. Tonight was totally unacceptable

So by your logic, the Bunnies putting 50 on us was just a blip on the radar. Some of us get a little pi$$ed when the team eats it big time like tonight. Melbourne seem to do a good job of not losing to teams they should beat. Sure as hell wouldn't lose to the freaking knights that's for sure

Big difference from last week Damo

You bagged a team out that lost its skipper after finding out his mother had passed away and had its heart ripped out

Many of the players knew her and some had lived with her when they came to the Tigers

This week is entirely different

Any person who thinks we don't miss Liam Fulton now knows better also

Melbourne lost to Cronulla, Manly lost to Parra, the titans and Penrith, everyone loses, Knights have more talent than all those sides

My logic was proven correct, we got beaten by the Bunnies by 50, disappointing sure, but we ran top 4.

IMO it is very difficult to grind away all year, and be good in the semies, it is very difficult to be up every week, and when you lose like this it is disappointing, but calls for the coaches head, 3 players to be sacked and alike are massive over reactions.

Damo just 2 things please... Sentences and full stops. Calm down stop mashing the keyboard, think what you are trying to say then carefully type it out.... Don't rush, just one idea at a time... Then put a full stop, then a space. New sentence new idea. Start with a capital letter and write that new idea.
As soon as you master writing a sentence we will move onto commas. Then when you have learned how to write we will work on the content. Don't worry soon you will be able to put something on the fridge to show you are a big boy now.
