The story of this season is, that when we are the underdogs we win (not really) and when we are the favourites we lose

Rds 1 and 2 were special. The most pleasing fortnight of footy since 2005 for me. Second storm game probably the biggest achievement. They were ready for us, we gave up home ground advantage, another maggot's milestone. Bang.

First manly game and south's game. Also great. Even rd 3, very proud of the effort.

Lowlights were titans and dragons at LO. Losing to para and the dogs. Getting pipped by the rosters.
Totally with you on the first paragraph and with GNR on the poor dogs game, which we now know came on the back of the traitor's first known defection meetings.

First Souths game was the best, where we frankly dominated what a high-flying club (8 match or so winning streak at that time?) by executing a good game plan for 79 minutes. In some ways I consider we ambushed Roosters and Storm early - sometimes when a club is reshaped it's more difficult for the opposition to work you out in the earlier rounds.

But that Souths game, Farah just back, Tigers played terrific controlled aggressive football the entire match.

Worst game was the Raiders match. We were in that match at half-time, then it totally blew out, like Tigers of old. First big blow-out of the season and whilst the second Souths game was super disappointing, I can understand that it was a difficult game to compete in with Souths pushing into the finals and Tigers 100% coming 9th. But the Raiders game - two close losses to quality opposition, then blown away by a team behind us on the ladder. Crippled our season.
the story of the entire season, win against teams in the top 8, and lose against people in the bottom 8 :bash

Also that 2nd game against dragons was also pretty shocking, threw a phone across the room in that game
I am getting a bumper bar sticker.

Worst Game Was against the bulldogs towards the end of the season.

Purely Impotent performance especially in light of the fact that we were in the hunt for that 8th position.

second is the Final round Vs Souths 51 to 10 I think

Best was round 1 beating the Roosters.
Worst was the last round against Souths, they were already on a break by then.

Melb in Melb was fantastic as it was built up as such a huge milestone game for the storm.

The Canberra flogging was the worst for me

Any win over the Rorters is special, but losing to them in the second game was hard to take, Fonua just need to step inside and we would of won.
Today we saw a true champion in Winx, and a true bludger in Cleary!

Best: Two wins over Storm and one over Easts. Wins over Souths and (at last!) Raiders pretty good too, and the two wins over Manly.

Worst: The second half capitulations against Raiders, Titans and Sharks, and the nail in the coffin, the day they forgot to turn up against Bulldogs.

In the end though, they couldn't score enough points when it mattered, and it's hard to see where more points will come from in 2019.

Love thrashing Manly at Brookie. Makes an old Magpie fan very happy.

Hate how each year we get owned by the Raiders
The first 40 of that game was near perfection

Agree on both counts. With the Raiders game we were in it at half time but serious injuries to Lawrence and Fonua as well as very poor refereeing decisions took it toll. However the Titans game there was no excuse. The teams attitude on that day was very poor and they seemed not interested.

Beating Manly at home by 26.

Losing to the Dogs after Cleary told the players he hoped he wouldn't be coaching them next season.
We will smash em 50+ get on.

Best - the melbourne wins, especially because of bellamy and slaters milestones.
Worst - the pathetic efforts against the titans and the dogs when we had everything to play for.
Special mention - the stitch up against the broncos. I was absolutely seething after that effort. Even my bronco mates thought that was a dog effort from the refs that night
