    At the start of the season we were written off as too old etc etc. We showed them in the opening rounds....then the experts and media jumped on board (typical!!). Well they've jumped off again, some even suggesting the top8 could bypass us.......THAT'S WHAT WE WANT!!! I've lost count of the times the media/experts have written us off, but heres a snapshot.

    2005 we buy Ben Kennedy and Brent Kite. BK is a crock, Brent Kite's a waste....we make the semis for the first time in years.
    2006 we buy Orford, he wont do anything and we will continue to be cellar dwellars....we come 5th and make week 2 of the semis.
    2007 BK is gone, Jamie enters. We can't win without BK, Jamie is overrated etc, we make the GF
    2008, Monaghan goes, 2007 was an aberration....PREMIERS!
    2009, favourites......we come 5th but have a shocking start losing 6 of 8.
    2010 media a bit indifferent and we end up 8th
    2011 written off...can't make 8 with rookie halves...PREMIERS!
    2012 favourites...come 4th
    2013 written off...........

    We just love being told we can't win...and it's happening again!! Come on Jamie and the boys show those smart A's in the press etc what you're made of...WE ALL BELIEVE IN YOU!

    Eels are the only team out of the running. There are a lot of teams below us that are still motivated and might run into a bit of form.

    We have got ourselves into the box seat but we need to start notching a few wins.

    Can you blame them? Something needs to happen with our attack and horrible discipline. I swear we get a penalty against us on every set we defend.
