Righto, before I get shot down in flames, yes I was disappointed in yesterdays result as well, my third trip (at some expense) to Brookvale for 2010 and not one win amongst them. BUT, am I "gutted", not going to be a member in 2011, never going to support the boys again....hell no. We have had "the year from hell" as far as injuries go and add to that more suspensions than usual (perhaps as a result of frustrations) AND many refs decisions that have not gone our way (many that were game changing), so it probably just "hasn't been our year". We were "behind the eight ball" as soon as Brett was injured in the first game, which added to the Wolfman already being gone for the season before touching a ball....our two most potent weapons not available for an entire year. Add to that two brand new (and very young) halves and it was always going to be a tough year. I for one have never really expected much more (from this year) than we got, so unlike many I think making the 8 (just) has been an achievement (considering all things) We have had some great wins (Dragons / Storm at their home / Warriors in NZ to name a few) and the MWTS have had a ball all year (win or lose), oh sure plenty of miserable losses as well but that's football. There's plenty on here "wanting answers", "calling for Des's head", "wanting to sack Bailey" and the list goes on and on and on. Yes it's fair to rant and rave BUT do NOT lose perspective, you cannot win every year, and to be 100% honest we have had some pretty bloody good years in the last 5, and you just can't compare 2007-2008 when the team that Crusher/Des "built" to win a Grand Final were at their zenith. And let's face it, it could be far far worse, you could be supporting the Sharks or North Queensland and THEN you'd really have something to complain about. So vent if you wish BUT at the end of the week this team still needs our support and after all you are still Manly fans!!
