Ahh yes cause no one lies in RL
Forby, why cant you read?
So in summary the reason they are good all of a sudden is they had a soft draw, didn’t travel, played all their games at home, had zero injuries and didn’t face any adversities?
Give me break!
Is your name Forby cos you have the intellect of a Forby-Two?
Holy shit. The panthers are good just because they are, it's a mystery without any contributing factors apart from goodness. A reading from the book of smug
That’s what I have been saying. The reasons listed above have been a recurring theme.
Everybody should just accept that they are a very good team without all the qualifications and buts!
I think panthers fans are looking at this the wrong way.
As a general rule, the more successful you are, the more you’re hated.
Most people I know are pretty neutral about the Panthers, but that’s because they’ve been a bit harmless for a long time. They probably deserve to have the feel good underdog narrative attached to them this year, but a combination of Gus, Brandy and overly smug fans has undermined it a bit for people who follow the sport closely. I’m sure casual fans are still backing you in overwhelming numbers.
I reckon you should embrace the hate. You should hope to be more hated come Monday, and to be the most loathed team of the next decade.
I’m with you mate.
In a thread named “why are the panthers all of a sudden so good”, it beggars belief that people are discussing the possible reasons why the panthers are all of a sudden so good.
What a bunch of morons.
Do you like walks in the park?
I dunno why westies have a reputation for wearing ugg boots.
They all wear smug boots instead.
Some people have principles, others not so much. Once someone shows you who they are, believe them.
Shouldn’t matter where first grade footballers play. Home ground advantage is a myth, you know, like fortress Leichhardt lol
Ok, so travel isn't an issue then? Glad we finally got to the bottom of that one..
There are no nice guys in Professional sport though
It’s a dumb thread. We are so good cause we had the best defence and the second best attack, the best completion rate also, it’s not rocket science. We also look physically fitter than a lot of nrl sides and have had a lucky injury run this year. This all came from the culture being turned around after last year and a lot of hard work.
If you’re in here talking about soft draws and travel then you’re just a little jealous I’d say. Half the comp had an easier draw than we did, and some teams that went deep into the finals had lots of travel and still did well. The fact that we underachieved last season has got all the muppets with short memories thinking this success has come from no where, fact is we have been building to this for years, you know the old five year plan. Last year was cultural issues exacerbated by the off field dramas and a coaching change.
Ah, the soft draw and very little travel compared to their main rivals in no way benefitted the Panthers..... of course....
So it's that 2019 panthers underachieved, not that the 2020 panthers are overachieving in the Covid Cup
look at the 2nd half of last year. We started to get form after Round 11. A few more tweeks and here it is
Pretty much. Cutting out the cancer that is Jimmy"Wins" helped
Tigers had less travel. How many top 8 sides did Sharks play? I remember the draw getting ranked post Covid and teams having so called softer draws then us
Even before him. 4 out of the last 5 years in the finals so it isn't like we were spooners and only got good with a soft draw
Separate names with a comma.
