    It's going to end up being 3 wins in 50 games. I just want to legitimately know what the feeling is like?

    Ask someone to kick you in the nuts for 80 minutes every weekend for 26 weeks straight.

    It has been excruciatingly painful being a Knights supporter over the last 3 years. But I am never embarrassed to tell people I am a Knights fan, infact I take pride in it.

    We are the best and most loyal fans in the comp and when success comes our way it is going to be the best club to be apart of.

    I don't feel embarrassed by it, but I know my friends and family take pity on me for it.

    Do the days of stars like Andrew Johns and their coach Michael Hagan feel like ancient history or are the memories still vivid?

    Embarrassing, only because I also support the NSW Blues, The Waratahs and the Wallabies - Actually football is embarrassing and stupid

    I was just saying, how many coaches can say they have won a premiership? It is an exclusive club and if you ask Andrew Johns he says that he was an important part of the victory. But you would know more than him as a fan of the knights surely, so sorry. I am just interested in accurate history. Obviously Craig Bellamy is a more successful coach. He has great players but and has some of those premierships revoked, so who knows. I am just learning about the game sorry. Everyone talks to me a lot about how Hagan is an unsung hero in other forums. The Eels team in 2001 was meant to be unbeatable so I've read.
