The obstruction rule is all over the place. I am getting more confused after each game I watch.

Are you meaning Gallen's? That was a blatant obstruction IMO. Then the one which they gave the try, Gallen milked it so much that he was way to far from the ball to get close to tackling. What a knob.

If Gallen actually makes an effort and gets anywhere near Tedesco then it's a penalty. He brought that on himself.

I know we all like to think of ourselves as wannabe coaches and EVERY comment in here is purely based around "IMO" only,
but alot of the backlash really has been over the top.
After 11 consecutive losses and a revolving door defence? I don't agree.

Well its the 11 consecutive loses that have really been the forefront of everyone's wrath, hey I totally agree, it happens on every forum..
But the point of my post was more about our 3 loses to date and comparing our games to other games that have been played thus far.
I think we are in better shape then we're giving credit for or fail to recognise given we sometimes think we know more about coaching then those that are qualified.
Of course a lot will revolve around this game today in particular given last week was our first win in awhile.

And just out of curiousity, if we lost today, what would be your view on the season then? or would it be the same? By way of losing to a bunny side according to most experts

Don't get to far ahead of yourself bud , maybe that's the problem, 1 game doesn't define a season win or lose. Everything is week by week.
I don't mind if we lose if we show clear solid commitment and we are beaten by a better team on the day.

Hoping to hell today is not the day and I'm quietly confident its not...

Not trying to get ahead of myself, but lets look realistically at what is to follow, Manly at home, Bulldogs away, Melbourne away, so where do we get the points if we don't win today to try and make the top 8?

So your not getting ahead of yourself but in your own mind if we dont' win today your not convinced we'd win games we haven't even played yet.

You haven't really read my post (

That being said , Manly fans are probably saying the same thing about the Warriors after last weeks win. I've already touched on Manly not being the same Manly of old. Your not all of a sudden scared of Mateo and Lewis Brown are you??? Manly are a work in progress just like the Warriors and yes slowly improving but likely to be without DCE when we meet them next weekend.
The Doggies I'd be realistic in saying we'd do well to beat them at the moment but i'd be more sceptical of The Titans and The Eels more then I would of Manly.

We should have beaten The Storm last weekend , that is reality and there was nothing convincing about their win against Newcastle last night that suggested we are in for a beating at AAMI park.

Lets Gone Warriors!

So if we are saying that the warriors are developing still and some people are saying they will be happy if they see improvement each week, would that mean that if we finish bottom 3 at the end of the season you would be happy? as long as their was improvement?

Hate to be obvious but even if the warriors get a little better each week, the other teams are also getting better each week, which means we would never close the gap. That is why it is important we thrash the roosters

I'm guessing sky are just picking up on the FoxSports feed and they've chosen to cover the other game.

Since the cameras are all in place, it's a pity that Sky can't arrange for a separate feed for the NSWarriors game - even if it meant that we put up with McIvor calling it from NZ. Guess it's not finically worth it for them.

Lol @ Eels

No matter what happens tomorrow night we'll be 2 points outside the top 4.

Crazy, all things considered.
