It seems to me that the club has had a long hard look at itself in the past period and the players have decided to lift their games in order to develop a winning culture. Instead of being competitive we are now winning close games and coming from behind. After a loss BK stands up and say that Burns and Co are stupid in giving penalties away and chatting back to refs. Hasler talks about dumb penalties etc. Kite admits that his form wasn't up to standard. Orford apologises to his team mates when he makes a mistake. Noone is making excuses, there is no protected species and it is clear that mediocrity won't be tolerated. What is really funny is that this is exactly what posters on this forum have been saying all along for the past two years. Despite being castigated for being critical and negative the things we have been saying have been dealt with by the coaching staff who don't pander us with the "the players are doing their best", "they bleed maroon and white" and "you aren't true supporters if you haven't got nice things to say!" It is not my aim to puff up my chest (cause I am sure the staff didn't get their ideas from here :lol: ) but rather to congratulate them on working to change the culture and move towards winning. What really pleases me is that there is huge scope for further improvement in the side and with a good run we are a chance of making a mark in this premiership. To all those negative narks who have criticized those people who have been supposedly negative and critical on this site, do note that the same things posted are being said by the players and maybe they should accept that this is not negativity on behalf of fans but rather knowledge on what is really needed to produce a top flight footy team that can mix it with the best. Here ends the rant!!!
