At 83.6% the optimists are singing .. This is the real life ... but the pessimists are chanting .. This is just a fantasy, we are caught in a landslide, no escape from reality ...

Maybe a little high, maybe a little low ...

im still not sold on the new structures

most structure is from the spine and they were all different in the trials and will be all different on saturday

defence and enthusiasm were up but youth can do that.so can competition, maturing of the young guys and the new coaches of course. but when we leak it still a torrent

we were still compressed in defence. most teams are. we played well when the other team gave us ball and looked poor when they stopped

our props didnt dent the line too much but backowers went good

kicking game wasnt flash but the kickers will be different

our depth did look good with a few logjams in the making around the halves and backrow

just getting back to footy. it was a trial, 3 days to see whats really changed

we will improve with depth, youth, attitude and enthusiasm

but to improve into top 6 we need new game management, forward thrust and tom more as a decoy. all still unknown. with schuster out all eyes will be on TOM.......again

Biggest thing I am looking for is how easily the opposition make meters and how easily they score tries. If they have to work hard to score and because of weight of possession thanks to dubious refs then ok but if we give anything easily like the 3 vs the rorters in the trial then it'll be a concern.

yeah the team itself knows its identity and its own metal.

im not the biggest DCE fan but the game last season against the cows where we snatched defeat from the jaws of victory i kind of understood that moment where he overplayed his hand. sure i would have preferred he played tight and kicked into the ingoal but that was never going to happen, so he went for our go to, score more than them

i thought it was a telling moment for this reason other than the result. the whole team knew, he knew, we wouldnt hold them out and had to outscore them and kill there spirit and NOW

Okay .... All the pre season hype, PR and media is done .... everybody has tasted the raspberry cordial ... and all Silvertailian's are excited ... that is except the 15.8% that aren't ...

Going into the first game of the season ... optimism amongst fans is riding high at 84.2% ...

If you haven't voted yet ... vote now ...

If you have changed your opinion ... change your vote ...

And go the Sea Eagles ...

You optimists are a pushy bunch. But winning our first rd1 match in 10 years is a big deal so i changed my vote.

Don't panic ... if we lose next game you can change it back ... it's a pulse ... it should go up and down to reflect current attitudes ...

What we watched yesterday was only the beginning of what this team can achieve this year .Defense was good and no injuries . We have a couple of attacking players to come in with Saab and Schuster .I have not seen a start like this for a while with a first game full house and a win .My prediction of a top 4 finish has started and the team should put the Eels away in the next round .Maaaaaanly .

One must admire the pessimist's dogged determination to remain .. "realistic"

Apart from a couple of come to Jesus converts ... they remain unimpressed ...

Perhaps a win against the Worms next week will rock their world ....
