They got paid and now they're content.
It's just a job right? Isn't that what Mr 2040 said?

Respect to Lawrence and Twal for showing pride in their jersey. Consistent employee of the months.

Farah and Mbye can sleep tonight knowing they did their best first week on the job.
Naiqama too but he's found employment elsewhere next year so lucky him.

The other guys... On notice.

After Round 6 they are 5 and 1. 4th and 4pts clear of 5th place. Decent for and against. At that point even if Tigers didn't make the finals they should be in the mix till the end of the season. Round 16 and they are gone. 2 wins in two and a half months. Things have turned bad in quick time.

I knew we couldn't keep up our start to the season but I feel like we should've managed at least another win or two over these last 10 games. 2 from 10 is absolutely abysmal.

Our forwards, Meters gained, and line speed in D is a shadow of the first 6 rounds...and I don’t know why Cleary doesn’t mention this publically.?

The myth that is Ivan Cleary has been found out. Reasons for leaving the warriors and Gus punting him from the Panthers??

He's press conferences are getting as bad as JT. "That's not what were about" however 2 & 8 suggests otherwise Ivan, it's exactly what you're about.
Careers have come and gone and the Tigers are still rebuilding. When 175 games and 7 years isnt enough, we've only been rebuilding since 2012. There's always next year and the year after that and the year after that and the year after that ...........

I’ve been asking for weeks what’s happened to the accountability. What happened to everyone clawing over each other to cement their spots. That’s all gone. We’ve hit the wall.

Even with the crackdown on offside, we had good defensive line speed & were not letting the opposition forwards make metres. No we are back to the structures of previous years where sides are rolling straight through our middle. The forwards might be posting big defensive numbers, but the attitude is garbage. Slow line speed & allowing the opposition quick play the balls.

They are absolutely bludging in attack with Lawrence the only one that puts any effort into his hit ups. The others stand around and let the backs do all the work, and then we wonder why they make mistakes after being belted constantly.
