These three players will always try for opportunity. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. 'Taking control and think they have to win the game' ..
    I thought that comment meant that there are 14 other players in the team, but they seemed to be the only ones doing anything.

    A pathetic performance & everyone who was calling for Lewis to get a shot in the top grade will be very quiet after last nights effort & i think the Tigers will asking for their money back if they watch his last 2 games.
    Cooper copped a headslam from the Mongrel Dog & his legs had turned to jelly then he probably should've left then field as it would not have counted on the interchange as the hit was put on report.

    Agree with Whiz it was easily Odwyers best game & we'll see his hit on Gidley in many replays

    All in all easily the worst game this year.

    Well done to Rankin on debut has he showed a touch of what he's capable of doing but if The Prince is back next week i don't think we'll see him again this year as our 20's have a serious shot at the title & he needs to be there to steer the guys around the park

    There was at least one - I came down to see the Legion for most of the second half!

    And DieHard, you should change your name to Innocent^Brad. Don't you agree, Steve?

    It could have (and I apologise if I jumped too quick) but I took it the other way and what I wrote I believe. A couple that post on here just have no idea. Harrison got Player's Player, pity it was in a losing game, so amongst the players, he must have shown something. Inexperience & weak defense on the fringes is what cost us the game, not 3 individuals trying to 'win' it themselves! Have you ever noticed that they are ' damned if they do and damned if they don't?

    Harrison had a great game. He put it a few really good kicks (I didn't know he could kick) and at times it seemed like he was the half back and not Lewis. If we didn't have Harrison and Friend, we would have lost by a lot more.

    If playing a 16 year old school boy, no matter how well he tried, is the best option for the team, then that speaks volumes from the coach.

    The season is over and Carty is trialing for next year.

    Might as well through my passes away and get another $1,000 out for next seaon.

    As I always say, it's not the loss that gets up my kilt, it's the complete lack of effort and the obvious capitulation they have shown in the last weeks that rots my shorts.

    Instead of patting each other on the back and saying bad luck when a mistake is made, they should be getting kicked up the back-side.

    I know is was only said in jest, but replacing this team with the Toyota Cup team might shake a few up, and you never know, we might get a win.
    They couldn't do any worse.

    Here a challenge for the team. Let's see if you can actually win another game before the end of the season.

    i thought our biggest problem last night was we seemed to have plenty of spectators on the field,waiting for someone else to make the tackle,waiting for someone else to take the ball up,and on several occasions i was waiting for someone to kick the ball on the 5th tackle,3 times on the 5th tackle we were caught with the ball and twice we were within striking distance.
    I think Carty needs to take his head out of the sane,i cant believe in the press conferences the last 3 weeks he has said the same dribble like,they never stopped trying,more like they never started

    cant agree more, they have thrown in the towel in my mind, carty needs to get hard on them and dont forget they are all payed players, and on last nights pereformance a couple of the players were just there to make up numbers but i bet they will put there hand out for there playing payment. Carty needs to give these guys a rev, or maybe carty needs a rev from higher up about the disgracful performances of some players come on 2009 because 08 is done and dusted

    It's a pity a few more didn't think they had to win the game.

    I'd add Preston campbell to the 3 already stated. he may have dropped a few balls last night but this bloke gives 110% every single week and runs harder than anybody for 80 mins.

    When he was taken out by one of their props mid air last night & nearly knocked out of the stadium to broadbeach I thought he'd be dead but he popped straight back up and got stuck in straight away.

    Absolutely.

    Here's a thought. When a player wins he gets a bonus. That's normal.
    How about if a team loses they get a fine. For every point loss $250 is added to the fine. So if the team loses by 3 converted tries, that's 18 points and a $4,500 salary deduction for each player.

    I'll tell you what, there would be fewer losses and those losses we did have would be a lot closer.

    Just a thought.
