    There is an answer for everything.

    We came 4th last year and had as good chance as anyone to win the competition.

    What are the excuses for us currently?

    We were good enough last year, we have practically the same team, minus Semi but have recruited Hayne, why did we not recruit forwards? Hayne was suppose to offset the loss of Semi but that hasn't happened due to bad luck but there is no excuse for not signing some bigger forwards.

    Like the excuses can just go on and on and on, but at the end of the day, we haven't recruited correctly and currently we don't even look like we have done anything in the off season.

    There is no excuse for our start to the year. End of, spin it and which way you want.

    Honestly I really think half you pricks aren't cut out to be footy fans. You want instant success and to turn around a decade or more of abysmal mismanagement in a few months? Go follow an NRL darling like Melbourne....

    Cleary bought back a past champion of the club who has provided outstanding leadership both on and off the field. Why didnt we think of that?

    So you're saying size isn't everything? And who has been good this year?
    What was the reason? He's also played 77 games in first grade, winning more than half of them. What's the reason for that?

    What concern is it of yours if we call for his head? And if you bothered to read the forum then you would know some have been calling for it already. Also what effect would us calling for his head have anyway?

    Careful, talk like that will bring swifstylez out of the woodwork and that’s the 2nd last thing we want now.

    In case anyone is wondering fanbase is the last, he is the last no matter the situation
