In year gone by the Wests Tigers have Started slowly and came home with a charge only to fall just short of the eight. This has sent all us half baked crazy supporters into the off season full of hope hope and optimism for the next year. Some of us even crazy enough to start setting aside dates in September for the following year.
This years we had a couple of unbelievable results against real quality opposition early in the season only to see it rapidly fall apart in the back end of the year. Its such a negative way to end the year and really puts a boot into your supplies of optimism.
For me like most others I will be back in 2015, but the past month has really hit my enthusiasm for the club for six. All the negative vibes start to get to you after a while and I dont see much to get excited about.
After the last game the spin doctors will be out in force talking the joint up for 2015, but I dont see anything changing,sad really because supporting a team is all about hope and optimism, but I suppose you can call me a harden looser
I know exactly how you feel. I never thought I would miss a game in Sydney when the Tigers play. I think I’ve missed only 4 over the last 5 years. I am a platinum member. But, I never even considered going last night and my two regular footy mates didn’t go either.
It had nothing to do with it being a Thursday night game. It had everything to do with having had a gutfull of embarrassing efforts from my team. And, while we won the second half (hardly an endorsement of the Bulldogs’ title hopes), we were shot ducks well and truly by half-time.
I will go to Rd 26 at Leichhardt to show respect and appreciation for retiring players and. most probably, the last game of Mick Potter.
But it’s the lack of respect and appreciation shown by the team towards us fans that makes me angry. To capitulate like they have done over the last few weeks is disgraceful and it’s summed up by attitude, not skill level. Their attitude is self-centred. Their focus is on self-interest and point scoring in a power game off the field. I bet they spend almost NO TIME thinking about how we, fans and members, feel about this situation.
