Sorry this ended up being a bit longer than I thought...
I don't know why but the idea of ditching the Warriors and reading this thread has given me the the right royal poops.
How is this season and what they're doing now any worse than previous seasons (2000 and '04 in particular) Sure there's the -4 cap controversy and all and because of that I viewed as a write off because but come kick off I was till excited by the prospect of watching my team run around the park.
The love of league drew me to watch these games and my NZ heritage drew me to the warriors and I will bag them from tim to time but stick to them like glue and abandoning them after 12 seasons is just bloody mindedness in my opinion.
They've built up so much collateral over the good times like 01, 02 and 03 and not just in the winning seasons but things like the debut, the 42-0 win over the knights in 1999 and other smaller things like being at Brookvale and watching them get up with Lauititi in the bin or even games like the Knights this year where you're deep in enemy territory...
On top of that I used to be a Bears fan (though my heart always bled blue, green white and red until the strip change) back in the day from about 1994 through to the end because I used to go to school across the road from North Sydney Oval and watching them leave the comp was heart breaking. I don't want to lose sight that we have OUR team in the comp and jumping the ship isn't going to help. I don't want to see the Warriors booted and then have ptotest marches to get back something I lost the faith over which is what I feel most of those Souths fans marching were. Sure they're frustrating and they make me so angry sometimes but they're still my team however simplistic that is.
I digress but the point I'm trying to make is that surely you've seen way too much to make you write it all off now and if you can do so well all the best at the Sharks but don't come back when the Warriors become a force again. We're in a position that many Norths, Wests, Balmain and Steelers fans would kill for, our own team in the NRL. If we start taking that for granted and losing the faith completely it'll just give them fodder to say get rid of the bums even they're fans don't like them.
Sorry had a lot to get off my chest...I'll have a lie down now
