    I'm 940km away. If you can put in the contract that I come down fortnightly, you pay my fuel, vehicle servicing & a new set of tyres at the end, you're on. If I win, you stay there, I'm happy mowing my own lawn & I'll catch you up for a beer or 3 when we go down for a game.

    Either result wouldn't be bad for a bloke that just threw a comment out there to be a positive among the negatives :lol:

    Honestly getting sick of people playing the negative card.

    Are people not allowed to give there own HONEST opinion anymore unless its a positive one?

    We will be lucky to win any of the remaining games. We NEED luck to win. Its just that simple. We don't have the luxuries other sides do of big game players and experience x17. We have 1.....state player who has a downfall or out of position. I dunno which one to go with. Negative? Nah just stating how it is "at the minute"

    Say what you want mate, I couldn't give two ****s to be honest.
    Weather I think they can or not, I like to try be positive on a public Knights forum, that's my view & mine only. Each to their own.
    I don't remember trying to condemn you in my post, must be my bad memory again?

    At the end of the day we all want the knights to win and be contenders. I think you are giving yourself a little tough love. We aren't attacking you personally just stating our minds to you. We are human, born to have opinions. Such is life.

    Not at all! Never could we win by a "perfect" game so to speak.... Win ugly? For sure.

    Really? For a team to be 9th they actually have to be a competitive outfit in any game not just a few or because the other team didnt try.

    That aint negative either, its honesty and fact.

    It was hypothetical, what is the difference trying to make the eight or trying to avoid the spoon, keep winning is only option, if we win more games than tigers, at least two, then we could offload the dreaded third spoon.
    That is a honest FACT

    We have placed ourselves 2 points behind the tigers again, they have Penrith on Sunday.

    Fingers crossed the Panthers give them a thrashing, we need the for and against.

    As amazing & unexpected as it is to win 2 in a row, we probably really need 2 more wins to avoid it. That's gonna be really tough. The Tigers winning last week really stuffed us.

    Agree, but there is still a glimmer of hope.

    Eels
    Storm
    Canberra
    Sharks

    Very very tough to see a win in any of those.
    Canberra is honestly our best chance though with them trying to make the 8 it could be 4 ugly losses to finish the yr

    Our run home

    Eels (A)
    Storm (H)
    Raiders (A)
    Sharks (H)

    West run home

    Panthers (A)
    Manly (H)
    Roosters (A)
    Cowboys (H)
    Warriors (H)

    If, (again with the ifs), the panthers can defeat the tigers Sunday. That cements us 2 points behind them. We have two home games left but against two very difficult opponents. We have played well against some tough opposition this year. To qualify that, we have played competitively but not long enough in games to get the points.

    We gave the sharks a scare earlier in the year away, and we tend to play well against the storm. Both those games are at home. Canberra will be a hard ask down there, but they are vulnerable, and we have beat them this year.

    What are the chances Wests lose all remaining games?

    Warriors at home don't think Wests will lose that, last game of season, Captains farewell and spoon chance, am hoping and wishing but not confident, said today that Warriors have only one win in Aussie this season
