No wonder Pou doesn’t post as much anymore.
Losing a game here and there means generally we are competing.
Losing six straight means there’s fcking issues. Either outplayed or we simply aren’t good enough.
If the consecutive nature of the losses mattered we would be just as likely to go on a run after winning the next two.
So the consecutive losses didn’t cause our problems, they were a symptom of problems that may or may not be relevant through the entire season. Last year’s consecutive losses weren’t relevant while this year’s look like they were. But we only know that in hindsight, like so many of you only know anything in hindsight. You were all tipping the spoon after four straight losses last year and you were wrong. This year’s season from hell doesn’t restore your credibility.
I think mate, if a team loses 6 in a row they are not going to make any finals series.
Losing 6 in a row is different to losing 6 scattered games throughout the season.
Do you know in the history of the game, any team that loses 6 in a row, only about 3 have ever made the semis.
If you lose 6 in a row, you can only lose another 3 from the remaining 18 games, chances are very very poor.
Yes you might go on a run, but not win 15 from the 18 remaining games.
That's why teams who lose 6 in a row just don't make it.
If you toss a coin 24 times and the first 6 all come down tails, you can't win enough of the next 18 tosses to get home.
I've tried it 200 times, i got home once.
Well I’m glad that’s all sorted out.
Finals here we come!!
So you don’t think losing that many games in a row impacted our confidence at all? Even the most rubbish teams will win a few games every year (look at the knights the last few years).
I also think the timing of the losses, being at the start of the season, was detrimental to our belief that we can be a competitive footy team in 2018.
How so? The merkin loves an argument and we’re giving him one, even if he’s coming off sounding nonsensical.
You actually provided a pretty good perspective on the issue a while ago. I think Pou’s the only merkin who believes the rubbish he’s currently spinning.
Todd has already decided we will finish last. One year in the finals is enough for him.
Pretty good? That was genius!
Are you sure @Barry O'Speedwagon didnt write it?
Might have been me. But I thought I was just stating the bleeding obvious.
how cold is it on the south coast today?
