    Today's loss has hit me harder than usual. I have this gut wrenching feeling that is staying with me and i need to get rid of it. What do you do to get rid of it'?

    Can't beat Getsmarty's advice.
    Follow Canterbury Cup for the rest of this season. Dragons will be in the playoffs and watched a replay yesterday in which they beat the Dogs. In fact, if I lived in Sydney I would only attend Canterbury Cup Dragons games and show the next generation some support.
    Better yet, find another outlet, especially since the season is almost over. Hiking, cooking, stamp collecting, take the Missus to a movie or show she always wants to go to, etc.

    Starting another thread sound like a great idea! I was going to start a sack McGregor thread but there are a thousand of those already. Maybe you're onto something about us having it better than others, Maybe we can start some sort of charity.

    Thank god that we have such a rich heritage so sit back & enjoy this.

    Now go back to youtube and look at 1977, 1979, 2010 and be happy.

    There was a great youtube vid of 2010 which went for about 15 minutes which keeps getting pulled down. I've watched that '66 game a couple of times which was quite enjoyable.

    That awful feeling is the thought of McGregor ruining another season for us next year.
    He needs to be sacked ................... this year! ( pardon the pun )

    Losses really don't hurt anymore. It's clear the higher ups and players don't give a f**k, so why should I? I generally just laugh at how inept we are during the game, take a few shots at Paul & Co. and get a good night's sleep...
    Some losses used to chew me up for days (years like the 99GF, 05 prelim) but it's pretty hard to be let down when you know exactly what to expect from the club atm.
    Just ride the wave of footy nihilism mate.

    Fulminate loudly and then have sex.

    In that order.

    I like to get into arguments with other Dragons fans.

    It doesn’t make me feel better, but they also seem keen for a stink at the time, so it’s serving both of our needs.

    Delve back into the archives of all Cameron Smiths games and count how many forward passes he throws and how many times Billy Slater was in front of the kicker when he scored....that should keep you occupied untill 2022 when hopefully The Imposter is gone.....

    I don't come in here often anymore. But I do after a loss. It gives me a good laugh.

    As getsmarty said, no use getting upset by it. There are other things more important in an already short life.

    I close my eyes, do circular breathing for a couple of minutes, pour myself a large scotch and then head out to the backyard to continue working on my 1:20 scale model of Fairstar the Funship.
