    Precisely and I also don't rate Christmas in July.....going off early for no reason!! McDipshit coach seems obsessed with 1st halves of the season & 1st halves of matches, claiming we would have run 2nd.
    Where as in reality, our team get lapped entering the straight when the heat is on!

    The reason we are not rated is that we have second grade centres and wingers. Thats being hard on nightingale only due to his age or lack of speed.
    Oh yes I nearly forgot we also have 3rd rate Coach.

    Who gives a flying fig.
    Most of these commentators have direct or indirect links to Clubs, some even are Board members who commentate on their own club. Frankly I’d rather we are not on the radar - Need a siege mentality and focus on our own backyard...

    I honestly believed and posted so that Duges would end up at FB with you guys.
    I still believe that will be the case just a case of when and won't be surprised to see him there this week.
    I think Moylan is well and truly rusted onto the 5/8 job for the time being.
    Still don't quite understand the willingness to let Maloney go.

    Even then he thinks it's a 98 metre sprint.

    I predicted we would finish top 4.
    I rate us. I believe that this is the year we finally power on deep into the finals.
    Hunt will prove the difference. Hunt in combination with Dufty and Widdop will prove that the coach isn't the be all and end all.
    The messiah is here.

    Whatever everybody else said AND- no depth- did you see the Intrust NSW performance against Mounties?-Leilua, Mary's great not so white hope, barely offered a wimper and our outside backs (Garrick and co) looked like boys playing against men. Field jumped around like a jack rabbit but his habit of running across field, linking up with his centres and then dummying is being read easily

    Your optimism is impressive Crush. Even if I don't quite share it.

    My prediction is 6th. The improvements you've mentioned are the key I think for this team. We effectively started the season last year with one playmaker - at 6. Now we have a creative 6, 7 and 1.

    Our forward pack is undoubtedly good, but forward work takes huge effort to maintain. If I was a forward playing last year working hard making good ground and space that was never capitalised on, I think I would have found it very disheartening, and struggled to maintain my effort.

    If the creative players are doing what they're supposed to, I think our forwards are a better chance of maintaining the rage for the season.

    Or I could just be being hopeful. Let's see what next week brings.

    Because we're consistently inconsistent.

    good point ... take Matty Johns' Fox show last night, his 3x co-panelists were Brett Finch (Roosters), Bryan Fletcher (Roosters) and Mitch Pearce (ex-Roosters). Enough said!

    also IMO we aren't rated by commentators because seasons of inept performances under Price and McG, and nondescript management have devalued the Dragon's brand to an insignificance amongst the NRL audience ... unlike of course the high performing and well marketed sides like Storm, Broncos, Cowboys <insert a bunch of others>...

    If you don't mind me saying, after watching Penrith, Warriors and Parra - they all have the firepower to do us some damage.
    For the life of me I cannot understand Latimore's selection over Kerr and Mann sitting on the bench for 74 minutes is just a travesty.
    I still think we are marginal middle of the table this year with McGregor pulling the strings.
