    BS Pou...
    Storm and Roosters have maintained their high standards for years going into decades now.
    Attention to detail, smart recruitment..
    Oh sombrero helps too or 2 sets of books

    We’ve only been waiting 7 years and have another 3 years. I’ll eagerly await.


    We’ve had a dream draw this year to date. We’ve only left Sydney once IIRC and playing often out of bankwest.

    I am not sure what you are looking for when you say "consistent top 4 team".
    Does that mean you want us in the top 4 every year?

    In the last 5 years only 2 teams have been a consistent top 4 side, Roosters and Storm, although the Roosters also finished 15th in 2016. No other team has been in the top 4 more than twice in those 5 years and the teams that did it twice were Sharks, Souths, Raiders, Brisbane, and Nth Qld. And except for the Raiders, each of these teams have had a question mark over their cap in one way or another over that time.

    We are in the second half of this season in 3rd spot and looking likely of holding a top 4 spot come finals time. We will add this year to a 4th and a 5th place finish over the same period. Panthers, Manly and Newcastle haven't made the top 4 once in the last 5 years.

    Ok mate...
    Pretty obvious what i said...yes top 4 side every year...can i put it any other way.
    No more fkn spoons and genuinely competing for the comp every year like the storm and roosters..that's what i want the club to aspire to and be..
    And quite frankly i don't care about the other clubs because apart from us, GC, Canberra and Warriors every other club has won a premiership in the last 20 years...

    Well we don't have a sombrero so we need to stop thinking we can achieve that level of consistent success. We should be looking at the Sharks, Cowboys and Bunnies as teams that can have a period where they're a genuine chance three or four years in a row and hope to jag one during that time. And then during their rebuilding period still be a chance of making the finals.

    Just changing the coach isn't going to turn us into the StormChickens.

    Except for the 'swept under the carpet' bit which was probably the most important part of the statement.

    Yeah sacking merkins is the answer. It's done so much for us since 1986.
    Good. If we're going to win the comp we need every advantage we can get.

    If merkins are going to judge our coach over his entire tenure then it would be foolish in the extreme to pretend it didn't happen.

    Any response that points it out is exactly that. A response to others going off their tits after only our third loss this year.

    Keep the faith. Our last two games have been in supremely shitty weather which has stifled our attack. I reckon we'll finish the season strongly.

    Yes extremely shitty weather but the opposition have played to the conditions alot better.
    It is only our 3rd loss of the season but it hasn't looked pretty for 5 or 6 weeks now.
    Fingers crossed we wake from our slumber.
    Or is it a form slump?

    So why are you unhappy with us being in 3rd place this year and ahead of 4th by two wins? Makes no sense.

    ...and the Roosters and the Storm don't genuinely compete for the comp every year. Thats bullshit.

    Except for the Storm and Roosters.

    Oh, and three other clubs as well.

    Its definitely a form slump. But I'm pretty impressed that we've been in every game during that period. God f**ken help the rest of the comp if we find our form again.

    On fire...lol
    Calm down mate and read the post again.
    I'm not unhappy abt being 3rd. I want us to consistently be a top 4 team.
    Yes storm and roosters do compete for the comp every year and want to emulate them..

    So why are you blowing up after a loss when we are still in the Top 4? It makes no sense.

    We've been consistently Top 4 all year so we are fullfilling your expectations. Why soil your pants now?

    No shit. Just comparing the two and how the cows have parted ways with him despite the success he had.
