Hey Everyone

As you can tell from my username I am a Broncos fan but wanted to say straight off the bat I'm not here to troll or anything. I have always had a soft spot for the Warriors and thought it time I join in the discussion, I hope you will have me :)

I am expecting a much better performance from your blokes next round, it never seems to matter what is going on you guys always seem to lift against us.

Looking forward to some good discussions
Welcome mate, enjoy your stay :)

I reckon your 3/4 backline will bitchslap us throughout the game, however i do hope the Warriors play better. Should be a good game. You going to Suncorp?

Yeah I sure am going. Broncos v warriors games are some of the best atmosphere I've been at. I think our 3/4 has the potential to do that, but we will definitely miss Kahu, especially if Eden doesn't learn how to hold onto the ball.

The ad lib footy that your blokes put on will worry our defence like it always does.

Hi everyone,
I am another new member finding my way around. I have followed Warriors from day one waiting for that grand final win like us all. I have watched the forum threads for awhile and you guys make my day with your comments. Matamata born living in Tauranga and have spent nearly 40 yrs in the kiwifruit industry.My job dictates how many live games of warriors i get to but there are 4 hardened leaguies at work so after every warriors game we are experts at nothing except we get up for the next game win or lose. Look forward to sharing comments with you all.

Welcome bro. Never knew why we were so famous for kiwifruit until I was billeted by a family on an endless kiwifruit farm while taking on Greerton Marist. First time I ever seen possums. First time I ever seen them shot too.

Enjoy your time here and feel free to post up...

Long time league fan, used to support the Panthers back in Royce Simmons days, then the warriors came along and that was it!!!, Warriors for Life!!

Used to be a season ticket holder, but split with the ex missus, who I proposed to in the middle of the field quite a few years ago, when Steve Price got his first try against the bunnies, met my new missus and moved to Hamilton and now farming, so not alot of time to get up to the games.

Not alot more to say really, other than I still have the faith but get extremely frustrated with dumb decisions. Just like my tattoo I have of the warriors my love of the team and code won't fade.

Somehow, I managed to stumble onto this forum after doing a Google search for a Warriors forum.This actually came about after finally having enough of reading the bullshit negative comments in the Australian online editorials which focussed on the Warriors. Bred in Sth Auckland, now living in Darwin, it almost feels like I have come home. I've been watching this forum from afar for sometime now and look forward to throwing in my 2 cents worth in the near future.

Hi All,
Missed the first half of the Warriors first ever game in '95' queuing up to get piss at Erricson Stadium and wish I'd missed both halves of last weeks game against Manly - some things just can't be unseen.
Live in Papamoa with my son and his dog.
Guess the best way to introduce myself would be to post this letter to the editor I penned - it was at the end of last season but still seems apt:

Hey Warriors - you really really suck!

I don't mean really really suck as in you haven't played well the last round or
ten - I mean you REALLY REALLY SUCK as in you have misled this nation for the past 20yrs!
We had bought into your lie that you where a professional organisation, an organisation that was taking every step possible to win a premiership but it's now become apparent that the truth couldn't be further from the lie, what we now learn is that it's all been about 'roll'n-in-late' and 'putt'n-on-weight' - well... we've had enough and, as an extremely loyal support base, we deserve
so much much more.
We've spent hundreds of emotional hours, not to mention dollars, on you
with the understanding that you were a professional sports club - OHHHH... but the fraud of it all - it's now come to light that it's been nothing like that at all.... has it?

Ok - In hindsight it's been all far too obvious and to the rest of the NRL audience the signs have ALWAYS been there what with the dropped balls, the missed tackles, the gapping holes in defence, the poor
passes, the years of inconsistency, the inability to play out 80 minutes,
the innate ability to steal a defeat from the jaws of victory, and that
special skill - the one thing that the Warriors have actually always lead the competition in - and that's
the ability to buy in a skilled player and quickly turn him into anything but before bumbling along to a contract release - well....
It's not good enough, in fact it's been very, very, very disappointing.

Ultimately, Warriors, the way in which the club has presented itself for the last 20yrs has simply been FRAUDULENT and Instead of feeling excited about next year I'm already feeling bad for Issac and Roger.

Where to from here for you as a 'professional' organisation?

Regards.

Hi everyone
I'm new here but used to be on VOT quite a few years ago now.
Moved back to Christchurch after about 10 years in the country. I'm working as a travel agent and have been doing this for about 25 years.
Love the warriors so finding it pretty tough at the moment and would like everything to come out in the open so can be dealt with and we can move on.
Am a club member and have been for a long time. Looking forward not back.
Cheers

Hi Citygirl Citygirl welcome to the fourm. We all finding it tough at the moment; just confident we have right guy in charge in Jim Doyle to get the club through this situation and build from here.

Agree lets hope the club gets the current issues sorted and moves forward.

Howdy y'all. Forgot to post here so here it goes. Posting all the way from New Yawwwk City and need my daily fill of Warrior news as the news, Tweets or the Facebook pages isn't cutting it!

Been a fan of the Warriors through the good, the bad, and the ugly since 2001 and just bought membership a couple of weeks ago. Alot of ugly these days to make me wanna drink but it's all good!
A Mount Smart visit is in the works! Great to be here with all you folks! #letsgonewarriors
