I don't think we played that badly tonight. We were playing to a different game plan. We will adjust. None of the 50/50s(100%ers in my mind) went our way in the last 15 minutes. The referee refused to award us a penalty.

As for fickle supporters, no most fans on this forum are not bandwagon jumpers so I can't call them fickle. You can call their negativity when we lose extremely excessive.

There's a difference between whinging cause we lost (and let's face it, most Wests and Balmain fans are used to losing by now), and being disappointed because we didn't look interested all night. I think tonight it was a clear case of the latter. The Titans are a very ordinary team and only Prince's kicking and our attitude kept them in that game.

If you read this forum enough you realise that the week to week comments are as predicatable as a Mills and Boons novel.
WIN - threads selling praises and discussing the grand final. Sheens and god are one. One player (often Benji) the best player on earth. blah blah
LOSE - hopeless, surrendering memberships, woeful v been a supporter for 2,000 years, never give up, positives
3 DAYS LATER - team choice comments, predictions, excitement
and then it all starts again.
I threw the towel in after last year's Rabbitohs game, and it lasted two weeks. Now I just roll with the punches (which isn't to say I didn't give the team a blast last night as they were woefully disorganised and flat).
The only bummer is I can never decide how to do my footy tipping where the Tigers games are concerned, and it may cost me money.

Well posted tigergirlz!! Dead set if I got slagged off for everytime I turned in an ordinary day at work, like some so called "supporters" do of the tigers, I'd be looking for the nearest bridge to jump off. Yes they played ordinary last night, but cut them some slack. We lost by 6 playing our worse footy. In years gone by it would have been a 30 point loss. The season is young, we've had disruptions with injuries. I have no doubt we will be contenders come finals time. Let's just keep the criticism constructive rather than slandering the players and coach!!

By the standard of english in your post I think you may have already been using the hard stuff. I hope so, otherwise there is no excuse for the crap you wrote.

I have a concern with the personal attacks on spudoakes. By the standard of support by the supporters on this forum you'd think each and everyone of us was Des Hasler.

I think anyone who signs up to a forum to discuss the team they support could be called a lot of things, but fickle is not one of them.

We are all big supporters of the club, wanting the club to perform well on the paddock every week is something we all want. Losing is hard to swallow, it always has been.

post of the week - but i must add we are emotional creatures, less so logical. its okay to vent after a loss and celebrate after a win and speculate 3 days later with team selections - like i said post of the week - cant say the same for the thread
