    The last time we were in the top 8.

    I don't much like being a rubbishy team.

    7th September 2016 back in the top eight. Not a problem.

    Since we were so dominant for 10 years that is quite a drought, and actually a shock.

    Let's hope we can set that right in the coming weeks.

    We will be back in the 8 soon enough @Ralphie

    I know it a very strange feeling seeing us not in the 8.

    Hang in there, I don't think we are far off cracking the 8 the question will be can we sustain and get enough wins in the season to kept our spot in the 8 for a finals berth.

    So long as we get back to #1 by first Sunday in October, the ladder is just a distraction :nerd:

    Geezus that is depressing. How the mighty have fallen and I don't see it changing this year either. We're going from the best finals record of any club over that last decade to heading for the worst in the next.

    I saw enough in the last 50min of the Souffs game to believe this team will develop into a top 8 side easily.

    So here we sit now in 11th place (12th if Penriff win tonight) and a difficult month ahead. We should beat Newcastle, but we always seem to struggle against them in Newcastle and they will have "bounce back factor" from their drubbing at the hands of the donkeys.

    The we have Cows, Donkeys & the Sharks. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see us winning any of those three. It means this weekend is an absolute must win game, because if we lose that we may go into the first Bye on a 5 game losing streak.

    Was just wondering how we're going this year compared to last. Will be an even more interesting comparison by months end.

    General consensus seemed to be that we should be in top 8. Personally, I thought given our recruitment, we need be in top 4 to be considered a successful season.

    Results driven business and all that drivel

    We are already in equal 8th position.

    For and against can turn around in one weekend...and not really relevant until about round 20.

    Yeah and we will have very little disruption through origin. Players will have worked a few of the wrinkles out. Some glass half empty types around here. That's for sure.

    I certainly didn't think it would take this long to click. It's been a very long time since fans were sugar coating such a horrid start - especially statistically, results, fitness/injury wise.

    Reminds me of the Jye Mullane / Sam Harris / Nathan Long days where people were habitually telling others how good we were faring.

    We are equal 8th? That'll do me.

    I'd like to think I am what's known as a realist. If you're happy with a 3-4 start to the season (1-3 at "Fortress Brookie") with negative F/A of 24 and potentially 12th place after tonight, then all power to you. I for one have higher expectations of this team and make no apologies for it.

    All here would know my views of our coaching staff. I had high hopes of the dawn of a new era with a modern thinking young coach, but I have not seen anything in the first 7 rounds to suggest to me that the coaching staff we have now are any improvement on Toovey and Co.

    most pessimists think they are realists

    its a bit like Andrew Bolt who thinks he is central and half the Liberal party are lefties.

    I am not happy with 3-4 start. The difference between us is I am seeing improvement ever week, and I'm getting a stiffi.
