momentum (mō-měn'təm) Pronunciation Key
Plural momenta or momentums
A vector quantity that expresses the relation of the velocity of a body, wave, field, or other physical system, to its energy. The direction of the momentum of a single object indicates the direction of its motion. Momentum is a conserved quantity (it remains constant unless acted upon by an outside force), and is related by Noether's theorem to translational invariance. In classical mechanics, momentum is defined as mass times velocity. The theory of Special Relativity uses the concept of relativistic mass. The momentum of photons, which are massless, is equal to their energy divided by the speed of light. In quantum mechanics, momentum more generally refers to a mathematical operator applied to the wave equation describing a physical system and corresponding to an observable; solutions to the equation using this operator provide the vector quantity traditionally called momentum. In all of these applications, momentum is sometimes called linear momentum. See also angular momentum, impulse.

momentum

In physics, the property or tendency of a moving object to continue moving. For an object moving in a line, the momentum is the mass of the object multiplied by its velocity (linear momentum); thus, a slowly moving, very massive body and a rapidly moving, light body can have the same momentum. (See Newton's laws of motion.)

Note: Figuratively, momentum can refer to the tendency of a person or group to repeat recent success: “The Bears definitely have momentum after scoring those last two touchdowns.”

Momentum

The rate of acceleration of a security's price or volume.

Investopedia Commentary

Once a momentum trader sees an acceleration in a stock's price, earnings, or revenues, the trader will often take a long or short position in the stock with the hope that its momentum will continue in either an upwards or downwards direction. This strategy relies more on short-term movements in price rather then fundamental particulars of companies, and is not recommended for novices.

Zzzz it all you like pal, in 2005 we ended the year in a slump. In 2006, we lost our last 3 - in ugly fashion. Des thinks he has the squad to lose 3 on the trot, then possibly come out against The Bulldogs maybe at Brookvale, play players that haven't played for some time, and roll over the top of the them?

Your kidding.

I would rather the side go into the finals with no niggles to be honest Ryan.

We have shown how much better we are than 93.4% of the competition.

I have no doubt that when the boys come back next week, they will pump the dragons at home a cream anyone who we play in the first HOME final.

Be at ease rhino, Des knows what hes doing.

I hope so guys. I really do.
I just hate knowing we are going to be beaten in a match regardless of who plays !

I also am worried we are getting into some wrong habits. We don't have a squad like Melbourne, and can't just turn things around.

You were saying a month or two back or squad was equal to that of melbourne.

Anyway our guys need a rest as they have niggling injuries and resting them gives the back ups much needed match time and a chance to impress Des, it should put us in a better position come finals time. However I do see where you are coming from as there is some doubt in the back of my mind.

Actually, no. A few positives:-

Bani - well done...Take my hat off to you, and give 30-40 games experience...him and Robbo will be ruthless. Then add Stewart at the back. Bani got involved when able, scored a great try. Pretty happy there.

That said guys. Bad, heavy loss. Hall gone probably. Momentum gone. Looking forward to Brooky next week. It's about time we are at home again.

4 from 6 away really isn't that bad.

Norweigan's and sweeds like to fart as well.

Solvenian sounds like a sexual disease.

No wodner we lost today as Des couldn't understand the instructions.

Losing their last 2 regular season games seemed to hurt the Tigers in '05. The same goes for the Broncos last year when they got toweled by the Dragons at home during the first week of the finals.

There's absolutely no trend to momentum and it's impact on the eventual premiers.

There is a trend to your whining though.
 

clontaago

First Grader
A club needs a loss or 2 prior to the finals and also needs their top line players fresh and ready for a hard finals campaign.

A fine tune match with all players available next week and we will be right for the finals.

The only ones we will be missing are Hall (offset by kings return) and Burns (who wouldnt have got a run next week anyway).

So Des should fart us towards the finals>?
I don't know I think were still going pretty well. The last couple of games have come down to us doing a mountain of defence. It's not like we're getting smashed from the kickoff, we're just not coming over teams in the second half like we usually do because there have been injuries or completely incompetent refs.
Defence looks good (35 tackles in arow last week, is that some sort of record?), attack is looking good and effort is looking good. Plus we've go home games for the next few weeks, oh happy days :D . :drunk:

Rhino - time to look for the glass half full again. We have a PL team that won't make the semis and yet more than half of them were on the paddock against a top 4 team at home.

I can just iimagine Des at training: Look Glenn and Snake - I know you are carrying injuries which could stuff up the most important semi final series in 10 years. However our supporters need you to win a meaningless game just so they can feel good about momentum. Would you mind hobbling through 80 minutes just to keep the little man happy!!!!

Yeah right!!!
