Parramatta Eels Supporters Website
Undoubtably we are in dire times.
I am amazed where all the personality issues seem to come into the reasoning. Usually seems linked to Hayne, Norman, Moses and now French. I watched Norman and Moses in the dressing room, next to each where they put their gear, talking after the game in a meaningful and understanding way. There is no abnormal conflict there. Hayne is a red herring in the circumstances and French is a kid seeing a dressing room unlike one he has ever been in.
I am not convinced any of this is the cause.
We have come up against a perfect storm (no pun). The circumstances of our defeats have been dictated by a common ill discipline.
To my way of thinking there is definitely something physically wrong with the preparation with the AFL style conditioning. I would not have a clue why that is as I do not pretend to have the expertise, only what I see.
The forwards are not good enough at any level, too slow in recovery, marker defence and roll on....its that simple....the opposition have done their work closing our backline down because they know there is no threat from the forwards.
Finally I am using this terminology of "momentum" refereeing. This season it seems that the referees are so obsessed with their instructions that the only side that gets reffed are the defensive side.
Attacking sides moving off the mark, shepherds and ball strips all go their way. You can only get back into a game if you have forwards that are good enough to turn it around. Parra's quite simply are not good enough.
What's the answer....well BA has failed to see this and address it in any cognitant way. It will most likely cost him his job because of this.
Unless he makes some very specific changes this coming round he will have lost everyone.
Summarise that; momentum refereeing, poor forwards, marker defence and clueless responses by the coach.
It is only human and understandable that the playing group will lose solidarity....a few wins can only help that!
So says the "bi polar kid" what wrong with using your real name Grunts!
well, no need to ask what week it is in the bi polar kids diary is it?
Having been up there and insulted by the best......Fong and you and Snakey...its good to see I have your attention lol.
I know Snakey does it with some affection but I suspect Fong and you are quite genuine in your hatred, which is sad because I don't hate anyone!
I hope you get over your illness Grunts.......
You dont know jack shit about this game. We have piss weak props. Plain and simple.
I don't like negativity for the sake of it Chief, regardless if you are right or wrong, it is not motivating in any sense having to witness your ravings and for that matter Snake's constant on letting of the Jersey issue, which you are equally conducive too.
The only consolation is that you get to hear my rants and blogs and I hope I can irritate you as much as your constant harping!
Of course what we all love in any discussion or argument is being "I told you so" you wouldn't do that would you chief.
If I remember right you were also a huge fan of JH's and advocating he would start at fullback with a diatribe of his Dally M winning prowes (put it in the bank were your words), equally I was just as determined to say he should be on the wing.
I am obviously not right at this point, but we can say you were absolutely wrong on that occasion.
So what, it is an opinion site and nobody gets it right call the time, but bragging rights is obviously important to many on here......I wouldn't know....I don't think I have bragged once.....but then again I am not sure when I was last right or if ever.
You know that broken record that someone posted on one of your blogs?
What do you think that stood for? You join in on every accusation, every comment to ensure you repeat the same thing......If you went to political school that's exactly like you would be instructed to play it.
Tell me the last politician you know to be popular?
Calling someone else a broken record and having a go at them for joining in on everything? Jeez, that's rich coming from you lol.
I'm not doing anything Chief, you are!
I think you will get your wish and whilst you have been proven right.....I don't have to like it.....after all I am a Parra supporter first and foremost.
Maybe you are as well, just no one would have thought so the way you attacked it.
You probably could have got me a lot earlier if you made it a more regretful process, some people, lets say most would say you enjoyed bringing him down.
PS He may of brought himself down but you attaching 20 kilo weights to each leg didn't help the process any.
Pops practice these words, 'i was wrong', it wont hurt you saying them especially considering what a right fighter youve been lol
I was wrong for being loyal and following my team and its coach? subjective?
I live with myself very comfortably Snakey....you want me to admit I am wrong, I will tell how wrong I am......I have picked 15 winners out of six rounds of football and I obviously haven't got a clue. Restate that 15 out of 36, that's 10 worse than last year and I was running last then as well.
I know how to say I am wwwwwwwwwrong
