    Comfortably more, I'd say.

    Actually given some of us who get lumped in as gormless defenders but then give it to Smith or Matagi or Taka (for eg) I'd say it's way more who are only negative compared to those who are only positive.

    I can only think of one bloke who argues positively every single time. And we all know who that is and what his motivations are

    3 from 16, the only stat that really matters.

    It’s quite different from last years 16 from 24 isn’t it? Or even from the previous year’s 13 from 24. Do you think you know the cause for this year’s drop? Is it because we lost Radradra, Fritchard or Gentle? Or is it because we brought Hayne back to the club? Or because we signed Evans? Or Tony Williams?

    Whose job is it to figure out the cause? Should we sack the coach? What if he’s the only one who knows how to fix what’s wrong?

    Mate he was out of answers after round 4, he's been shuffling the deck chairs of the titanic ever since then.


    It's no ones fault it's just been bad luck, oh and the weather it's either been too hot or too cold. Can't help bad luck.

    What if the fix was something that could only occur over an off season?
    Yet you think our results of the previous two years were just about good luck? You can't have it both ways mate.

    I agree with Sterlo, right move, poorly executed

    Last year we did have some luck, we won a lot of close games that could of all went the other way. Our poor F/A showed that while we won 16 games we weren't that dominant in a lot of them. I thought we overachieved last year and it give the whole club a false sense of security, I think we came into the season a little cocky and just expected it to happen. And thats on the coaching staff and players. Plus this season we have had bugger all luck.

    i'm not so sure it was the right move

    ok it's a good result if it comes off but it's still an unnecessary high risk play when all we need to do is finish off the set and kick to the corner

    make THEM roll the dice they are the ones behind on the scoreboard

    The reason is

    Brown missed games. He was influential .

    Gutherson,Norman,Moses,Jennings,Bevans,Kings form been way below last seasons.

    KE sacked who played a fair role in last years success.

    The rest have been simmilar or better form.

    Evans a huge flop.And offered nothing

    Hayne been solid

    And of course loss of Semi

    Wow so there's good luck, but when there's bad luck it has to be some merkin's fault?

    It was a kick into space, under no pressure and with no defenders. How is that high risk? Waiting two tackles would've added maybe 15-20 metres, but also added more defenders in the backfield, plus heaps of extra kick pressure.

    The problem was that he was too close to the 40m and didnt have a simple lead into the kick.

    I agree the concept was ok .... but it still was a low percentage play
