    We won't beat Parramatta.

    We are the worst team going around. Only our good start builds the mirage.

    Every team shows up to play the Dragons, and they get the result. Since Round 16.
    Round 16- Dragons snatch it at the death against the Eels. Eels probably the better team. 20-18
    Round 17- Play good attacking footy for 65 minutes, pretty garbage defence, but still in the game for that time, play complete shithouse in the last 15 minutes. 30-52.
    Round 18- Play flat and slow football, always on the back foot for the whole match, Tigers felt the win was more important. 16-20.
    Round 19- Wins against the Cowbyos, a decent performance. 24-10
    Round 20- Play on the back foot from the first tackle, Roosters pounce and give out a thumping, no energy. 18-36
    Round 21- Do absolutely nothing in the first half. Play good in the first 10 minutes of the second half; then back to nothing. 12-18
    What will happen in the rest of this season. If it is similar to recent form than this is a scary prospect. 4 losses from last 6 games.
    Parramatta, Tigers, Bulldogs and Knights will alll turn it up. A loss in any of these games will bother me.

    Imagine we lost that round 16 game - we'd actually be a chance of missing the top 8 altogether. Again.

    The season imploded as soon Melbourne put 50 on the Dragons. Sure, a lot of players were impacted by representative duties, but the game demonstrated just how far the Storm are ahead of the team (not excluding McGregor).

    This is 2015 on repeat.

    Others have said it - the Dragons jump out of the blocks and take all before them , then the media gets in on the action declaring that they are premiership material and as the season wears on the foot is taken off the gas pedal , or should I say there is simply no more gas left in the tank . The whole shat-heap stutters and wobbles before finally coming to a halt with the end in sight - again , so near yet so far , again .

    When is the coach ever going to realize that it is a long , long season and you need to fire your players up for each and every match . What a waste of a year , what a waste of talent that under a decent coach could had done so much better .

    Last round of 2017 says it all really. It was a must win against a team with nothing to play for.

    Eels are playing well tonight. We’re playing sh*t. Ominous signs.

    Eels are looking good against the titans.
    Hayne v Aitken will be a no contest.
    We are also good at making ordinary players look good such as today with Mannering & Beale. Next week it’ll be Gutherson, Moses & Mannah

    We'll make Parra look like a top 2 side next week.

    We're soft and poorly coached.

    Anyone who underestimates parra is an idiot. They took it to souths and are giving it to the titans.

    I agree with your comment.
    The Dragons will make parra, tigers, dogs and knights look like premiership winners.
    They will find another stupid way to lose these games.
    I get the feeling they are just not trying to win.
    I wonder are they deliberately tanking it?
    Is the fix in?
