Off The Bench

So I'm going to follow through with the promise I made on match day and miss my first game in the Warriors history, due to Thompson's selection.

There would be no worse back rower in first grade at the moment, he is not in the Warriors future plans, he leaks a at least a try every game, has no offensive impact, his timing with Shaun Johnson is off, he was part of the drug scandal and he has up and comers snapping at his heels. Kearney running a team with no accountability is absurd; there is no upside to Bodene's selection atm. When others in the team talk about uncommitted players letting them down who are they talking about and what effect is it having on their morale

Kata's defensive misread was the worse defensive play I have seen in the NRL...EVER.

I am done for a while, and I bleed this club. Totally disillusioned right now.

I hear you man but we got through years of mateos shit defence , At least brodine
Don't just throw the ball around an call it an offload,An he hasn't got an extention .It's
Baby steps I know But it's progress

Is Roache gonna get any minutes this weekend or will it be another big fat 0 next to his name? SK's definition of development right there. Sit the kid on the bench for a full 80min. Smh.

I'm starting to feel as though Bodene and a few others have photos of SK doing something or someone he's not supposed to be.

I bet we beat the Titans this week. And then, we get absolutely hammered by whoever we play next.

Classic Warriors.

This reminds me of 2010 and early 2011 when Ivan refused t dump players like Brett Seymour for that new asian kid, Lance for the little dude with the 105m U20s try, Mateo for anyone. Wouldnt give Inu a shot cos he was on the naughty chair and knew what he did. Why do coaches all get stubborn against the fans when their team are shit? Sure, for Ivan eventually it paid off. But it virtually never does
Way back in 1995 we had a "supercoach" called John Monie. He wasn't scared to drop players at all. No way, make a mistake n the field and he hooked you without thinking.

There was this young Samoan winger out of the under 20s, first game at MSS and he made an error. Monie dropped him and never played him again. The kids confidence was shattered. He got offered a contract at Warrington and became a superstar before coming back down under and eventually one of the best try scoring backs in the game.

That was Nigel Vagana. Think about it.

With the 22 man squad he could get all cunning and change it closer to game day. But he won't.
Pretty sure i saw kata grab his leg again late in that game, might be some false hope that he isn't fit

I got free tickets... Do I go or stay and watch at home?? I have never even considered not going to the annual GC game and now I'm torn and they are free!!

Haha I'm in the same boat. I get a few free tickets and normally have my mates banging the door down for this game- this time it's been tumbleweeds.... I had to put a post on Facebook to see if anyone wanted them.
The fan base have seriously had enough.

So that's our run is it? Titans then the bye then the bulldogs?
That's actually 6 points that are there for the taking and that would have us back in the running.
Not counting my chickens but it does give me a glimmer of hope.
A tiny wee glimmer but a glimmer all the same.

Wow.

This is the worst I've ever seen it on here in recent times.

We are all so ashamed to be fans right now that we take the piss and rip to shreds the very team we claim to love.

Oh look. No changes. No surprise.

Kata and Thompson should have had a spell.

But that's not our call. That's on SK.

I often wonder if we..us as fans...contribute to the mental weakness of this team.

Seems irrational right...these guys get paid thousands to play 80 mins a week, harden up.

The Warriors are the most scrutinized team in the NRL.

Maybe in the Southern Hemisphere.

Media in both NZ and Australia rip these guys to shreds.

Justifiable to criticize...but often too far.

Fans are the worst.

Take a guy like Maumalo for example...I heard on good word he gets a shit Ton of hate mail on social media by fans who bag him being in the team..like seriously who believes their entitled enough to attack a player personally like that...

That hand gesture he does when scoring tries...a msg to the haters...

Then I read some prick on a Facebook page moan about that very gesture, saying it's unprofessional and if he couldn't handle the backlash he should get a 9-5....reckons he's gonna Email Doyle to complain about it...for fuck sakes.

Yes we have the right to be pissed off but supporting this team is a choice.

The entitlement of taking our frustrations too far....beyond the keyboard of a forum or Facebook page...to reach out to players and literally spit in their faces...

What I'm getting at is this team is low on confidence backed in a corner ridiculed from all angles.

It's in vogue to be anti-Warriors now.

Shit, I'm frustrated. Over it.

But SK, what he's showing me is that he has the back of this team, when the world has turned their back on this team (and I'm not saying without good reason).

And to an extent...it's worked for Maumalo who, despite scrutiny, has improved this season.

But until they learn as a collective to cancel out all fan expectation...media pressure...

To learn to fight for each other...do it for each other...

Adobt a Fuck the world attitude...that's when we will see the Warriors get back to their best.

It's a vicious cycle....a tunnel as deep as its ever been before....

But SK isn't phased...Veitchy and Radio sports have tried to brake him... he's taking the ridicule as sacrifice to back his team...

These motherfuckers need to pay him back some respect. Which will win back the respect of their fans. Then the media.

For themselves.

For the love of the Warriors.

To be honest, I think Ken Maumalo has been the best outright player for the warriors this year in regards to consistency. In fact I would even leave him in the side over a fit Manu Vatuvei . Not sure why people would place hate on a guy that puts in 110% each week.

An example, not sure which round it was, Maumalo went up to catch a defensive aerial bomb, and dropped it [Tuivasa Sheck was right beside him in which I think should have caught the ball]. Anyways 10 minutes passed and the opposition put up another aerial bomb, Ken was the first person to put his hand up to catch the ball, in which he was successful.
Half of our team do not show the grit to strive to do better in every aspect of the game, we would see half of them drop the head and completely dissapear

Didn't realise to what extent we own the Titans, 12 of the last 13, the one loss was that baffling anzac day loss at mt smart a cpl years ago.

Obvs the Tits havn't been a top team in recent years, but thats got to be our best winning record against anyone.

I like the Tits.

My 2nd Fav team.

Their fans as a rule speak our language.

They have issues with club culture, attracting fans, attracting players, they are long suffering like us.
Try to imagine what it is like to support the club that gets bullied by the Warriors.

If the Warriors folded, I'd jump on their Bandwagon.

Fark if they beat us this week I'm there.
Bandwagoned them all the way to the finals last year too.
Seriously a loss this week and she's all over red rover- may as well cut anyone who's not gonna be here next year and start building for 2018.

i think most coaches just assume that us fans do'nt have much knowledge about rugby league,i guess
