I think I've only missed one of our home games in that 9 game losing streak so I'm probably at 8/9 as well egg. It's a **** feeling leaving that ground each time I assure you, not just because we are losing but because we are seeing the exact same thing over and over again with no change to the status quo in sight, like beating you head against a brick wall but your head is a soft shell and the yolk is starting to ooze out

I don't think things will just magically gel like we all hope though, Flanno's 'coaching' style is counter productive and preventing these talented players clicking on the field and I seriously question his training techniques

Sigh, ill still be there though on the hill drinking VB like a gronk

I will be too mate .
I've been spoiled living in Brisbane and winning 3 years in a row .
But for you poor sods down here , that walk from our home ground , enduring disappointment is AMPLIFIED compared to experiencing those same home ground losses from Brisbane.
I will NO longer winge about Sharks crowd numbers like I did last Friday night .

No mate, if crowd numbers are pisspoor you've got a right to comment on it. Friday night definitely wasn't the only time the crowd number has been lower than it should be.

I know , but just those 2 walks home thus far hurt after such a fantastic 9's campaign .
Can't even begin to comprehend 9 from 9 .

So we were tackled 43 times in the Broncos 20 and produced 4 repeat sets but still couldn't muster up a try, fmd that's bad, how can you have that much ball down that end of the field and not cross for a try

because Sharks, you would know as good as anyone this is nothing new. If our team knew how to create a try they would have scored 1 or 2... but the grinding game relies on a lapse from the opposition or some just plain pot luck which we tend to be short on

Again, Oh so sad and yet so true what in the hell is wrong with Flanno that he continues with such negative crap and gets paid a Motza doing it. This style of Coaching does not encourage current players or potential players from elsewhere.

Why does the Club the faceless men allow this to continue...... are they also a part of the problem or.......A part of the solution?

Flanno was re-signed at a time when Carney was here and we'd made 2 successive finals campaigns. Asada issues/nrl ban aside, there was at the time no reason to not re-sign him

I spilt beer on Lyall's suit on Friday night. Expect a resignation soon. He was not a happy boy.

How many times did the backs see the ball compared to the forwards? And was it good ball.

Spot on. Do you reckon he has any ASADA Type blackmail on the board or are they mostly sit on ya hands, do nothing idiots as well, also l am so glad we have purchased such a great assistant Coach with a great track record in attack and a footy genius , he is sure to put pressure on Flanno.

We would without doubt have 2 of the most effective brilliant foot minds in the NRL with our two coach's leading the way in new concepts and a killer game plan.

Bring Back Shep
at least we won some games against the top teams and played footy that was attacking and at times great to watch
