    I’ll take your word for it.

    Tonight is first time I’ve switched the league on this year and I watched 20 mins of it

    I just don’t get the same excitement out of the game anymore. It’s not the spectacle it once was

    So true , it’s like mma now with all the wrestling and jiu Jitsu on the ground etc

    Perth red suggested 9s the rest of the year and I don’t disagree

    A number of years ago I used to watch every game twice. Its that "one out" and so robotized, most games seem so similar to each other, you only remember a small number of highlights. To watch some games again feels more like a burden.

    Too much wrestle, attrition removed, players milking anything they can get, I could go on.

    When I watch the nines (not a lot) I often myself thinking this is now league used to be. Fast flowing, line break, overlaps, attrition.

    Id love to see the comp changed to the 9 a side format.

    If we did change to 9 a side, watch the crowds flood in, and watch how many new talented players are unearthed.

    Yeah mate, I’m not fussed in the slightest if I miss a game now. I don’t watch any other teams play, not one of them, there’s a 50/50 chance I’ll turn a sharks game and watch also.

    Its not that I don’t love my club, the game is just not enjoyable to watch at all.

    Bellamy sounds stressed.

    He was going for something. No one in his team had a clue what it was, though.

    To be fair, our outside backs are very young and inexperienced, mostly.

    Missing Dugan, Moylan and Xerri, so you'd expect the backs to struggle for a while. I'm happy with the progress of our young players.

    But we really do play stupid football, most of the time, and have since 2017.

    You watch the games from early 00’s. Much more entertaining then. Too much un needed time wasting now

    What a horrendous game. Perfect conditions and they dish up that shit. Both teams seemed more interested in rubbing each other’s faces than playing football.

    I don’t think Bellamy will be too concerned about losing vunivalu and jac. Two clowns that do plenty of dumb shit.

    And if Morris had a pair he would of hooked Johnson at halftime. You’d swear he threw that game

    Vuni was one of our best today, as he was last week. He can be a grub sometimes, but he's our grub.
