Reality: It's time for even the most one-eyed die hard tragics to admit that the we can't go back to back. Losing 6 out of 8 is going to make it tough for us to even scrape into the eight. Unless something extremely miraculous happens there will be more losses. In '07 and '08 we were on fire and hardly even considered by rep selectors. This season we suck and they're going to select quite a few of us. For those of us who have no interest in supporting any back-up teams it's seems like it's going to be a long season. The light - for one-eyed tragics: There is still time left to find some form. B.Stewart due back in round 18 - could possibly return earlier. Change of thinking - The team needs to think, "We can win this match," instead of, "We can't lose this match." A list of the following matches and Nicci's ratings on possible wins: 9. Broncos (go camping or something next weekend) 10. Eels (strong chance of a win) 11. Titans (tough one - though in with a slight chance) 12. We'll beat that Bye team by 50. 13. Roosters (can win this) 14. Panthers (in with a chance) 15. Raiders (strong chance of winning) 16. Bye - this time by 60. 17. Bulldogs at Brookie (seems like a loss on form but anything can happen at Brookie) 18. Dragons (B.Stewart back, Dragons firing - a win would be an upset) 19. Sharkies (both teams suck this year, hopefully they suck more - we win) 20. Knights (tough match 50/50) 21. Tigers (another 50/50 - somebody slip Benji some sleeping pills) 22. Bunnies (hopefully a win) 23. Roosters (two under-performers so far, Eagles to find form by then and win) 24. Storm (maybe another camping trip - though they're not as tough at home as past) 25. Sharkies - Brookie (We'll smash those thugs) 26. Titans - Brookie (Eagles to finish competition rounds with a winning double at Brookie) Go the Mighty Eagles!
