    We have threads knocking other teams but there'll be plenty laughing at us.

    Barrett has ruined our siege mentality already. Barrett's all warm and fuzzy and positive media has them lulled into a false sense of security.

    Gus sold Bozo a lemon. WTF has Cartwright ever achieved?

    Management, coaching staff and players all caught up in the hype.

    We looked horrible tonight, beaten all over the park.

    Hate to say it & early days & 1000 more excuses, but the attitude is lacking resilience....hopefully this grows after a win, but for now, off the pace 2 out of 2.

    Don't know why everyone's on Myles back, he tackled his guts out in a badly beaten team.

    He's meant to do more than tackle given he's meant to be one of our star forwards. If its just tackling we want, we can pay a lot less for some other plodder.

    If he had shown a little more urgency he could have defused that first kick that led to a try, instead it was just plod slowly back until it was too late.

    There's more to your game than tackling. Miles should be terrorising the opposition with origin enthusiasm with his legs pumping etc. I'm afraid we looked like Dad's army tonight against a young & organised team. Oh dear this is going to be a long season.

    We looked like a rabble. What is the off season for if not for fitness, building combinations and cohesion and establishing a structure in attack and defence that will serve you well at the start of the year. It hurts to say, but we looked like amateur hour from top to bottom tonight, the owners and recruiters, the coaching staff and many of the players.

    I would laugh at a team playing that badly if it wasn't manly and it didn't hurt to laugh about it.

    New faster rules are unfavorable DCE. Not quick enough to take advantage of open spaces.

    Some of the so called stellar signings are laughable.

    Yep. We're funnier than the eels.
    I think the Nrl should dock us 4 points. Oh wait, they already have.
    I need a scotch and I don't even drink it.

    Myles got put on his back every time he ran* the ball up.

    *Myles did not run the ball up. He jogged it up.

    Never have I seen our team get absolutely owned. Most of our forwards looked ordinary and they went through and around our backs easily.

    We definitely need someone who's bled for the club and knows a little something about heart. Someone who can tell the players to keep it simple: run hard, tackle hard, put in more effort than the opposition. Oh, wait…

    I wouldn't say all of our forwards were a problem. Jake T, Lawrence, Tapau and Starlo to a lesser extent all ripped in and played with great heart. I cannot fault any of them. Barrett stupidly decided to pick Green over Leary and Brown over Tom Symonds. All our problems are from bad coaching. That backline does not forget how to defend without some muppet tinkering with a system that worked. Barrett has no soul and no energy. He was an over-rated player that promised much and delivered nothing. Nathan Brown slapped him because he is a moron that is in la la land and he can't focus. He is not a great coach and the experiment is a failure. We would be 2 from 2 if Toovey coached this same side with the backing and support of the head office. Management however decided to dismantle a winning formula and shaft everyone involved in the hope that Barrett would be a success. It is like they took over QLD and turned them into NSW.

    I seriously asked the missus to turn the DVR up to normal speed when he got the ball, because I thought she had actually hit slow-motion by accident.

    No lie.
