Long live the Rainbows and Butterflies
- May 8, 2012
i wish i could see your enthusiasm for the future under brown. But looking back at his results and the style of play they did under him. Im seriously thinking of adding thunderclouds to my thumbnail.So, we didn't make the finals but given all the disruptions this year including restarting the season, change of coach, Green leaving (which looks more like a positive now) players going home, loan players.... plus a few dozen other things, for the first time since 2011, I'm really proud off the team, coach and staff.
What remains to be seen is whether the attitude amongst the team/squad remains the same next year. There has been so very few times in the last decade when the Warriors side has got me out off my seat (except to look for something to throw at the TV) but the freedom and spirit they've played with over the last few weeks has had me jumping around the Lounge and, even though we haven't made the finals, renewed my passion for the team again.
Brown, please, please let them play with this same freedom. No, more than that, encourage it, build systems around it and let them play at the level we've seen them throughout the second half of this season next year. A few of the teams in the finals this year will be looking over their shoulders to see the Tamworth Warriors chasing after them for their finals spot!!!
With a best possible result now 9 and a worst of 13 I really dont see how this season on paper looks all that different to previous years. especially considering the lack of wins against top 8 sides. Really not to different to the sharkies either.
Throwing the ball around is definitely edge of the seat stuff, but the results still arent there. Maybe a more settled squad would have improved on this, but given its a whole new team, with a different coach next year (yes one i dont rate) then i feel a fair bit of doom and gloom looking forward. Or maybe thats just lockdown me talking
