I hope the Raiders win and we cause an upset

This isn’t the first time we’ve been referred to as “the sleeping giant”.

Pretty big supporter base, lots of juniors…I don’t know looking back, we didn’t recover losing Prince and we didn’t recover losing our chance in 2011.

Benji lost his way, some poor off field decisions were made, some players seemed to be dictating how things should go.

I reckon even if we’d won in 2010 and/or 2011, we’d probably be in this same predicament.

It seems like things are under more control though in the back room and that they are trying to fix and change the culture of a club that’s been stuck for nearly 9 years.

we don’t have the cattle, we have a centre playing fullback and we have no halves…not much he can do

How about he just gets us to compete, like Holbrook has done at titans and Payten with the warriors with a side that as players coming and going every week

we were competing and then the wheels fell off after the Bronco’s game…as for the Titans a -147 for and against doesn’t suggest they have been competing very well, but yes the Warriors went up a gear with Payten, however that was a change of coach which clearly helped…it’s never helped us in the past

Are the titans now above us ? But there not competing better

You’re just raising the goal posts, you stated “How about he just gets us to compete”

Their for and against certainly is telling and 1 more win than us? Seriously?

Seriously what more wins in the win lose column no matter what the for and against is still puts you in front but you already know that.The point I was trying to make and maybe I didn’t explain myself correctly is that over the course of the season titans have showed steady improvement unlike us

Have they though? Given their opposition over the last 4 weeks it’s hard to tell. This is what I said earlier. None of the sides they faced in the last 4 weeks are in the 8.

We’ll see how they go against the Knights.

Dave you can only beat the side you are playing, but if you think that they haven’t shown more improvement over the last 6 weeks than us just like everyone you’re entitled to your opinion. I am sure we only want the club to be successful

Absolutely want the club to be successful, as would everyone else here. I don’t know what’s happened since the game started up again after round 2, we were going pretty good for a while there, but I just think that Madge needs to be given more time, we just haven’t let prior coaches have the time required to turn us around

4 coaches in 8 years, seriously people…

We pulled the trigger too early on Potter & JT. They had us on the right path.

People keep mentioning that Madge inherited Ivan’s overpriced duds and unbalanced roster. Potter inherited the Sheens/Humphreys backended contract disaster & JT could not sign anyone other than reserve graders and has beens due to the cap space.

All these coaches have been in a similar predicament and all have produced similar results. I am not sure there is any valid argument to suggest that one is better than the others.

That’s right, pulled the trigger way too early on those coaches, so even if Madge was punted, we’d be going back to square one…we can’t keep doing that. They need to stick with this guy for a couple more years and give him time to rebuild.

not sure what would have happened…unlike the Storm, we don’t much NRL support, they put a lot of effort into the Storm to make them successful
