    We lost to the dogs with any chance of a home semi on the line.

    They shat the bed.

    we are an 8th place team

    That’s where we deserve to be

    No better than that

    Our props worry the shit out of me

    Our attack worry the shit out of me - it’s getting too predictable

    What happened to our defence??

    Pure arrogance.

    Didn't show up to play and left it too little too late.

    Another disgraceful penalty decides the result. I don't care if the Bulldogs are bottom of the table. 8 points behind at halftime is not easy to come back from.

    Rubbish.

    Didn't deserve to win.

    Disjointed in attack and weak as piss in defence. No match awareness. Let a busted centre in Josh Morris run like 40m on the 4th to set them up for a field goal.

    We sit 8th and that is a very accurate representation of where we belong.

    Would not be surprised if we imploded next week against an under-strength Panthers side.

    Defense was horrid when it counted.

    Bottom of the table team looks like champions once again.

    Ground Hog Day?

    Too little too late.
    Shame , played really good footy for 20 minutes there.
    Well might be good going up against Penrith off a loss .

    Johnson lumping it onto hopoates chest with 2 minutes on the clock is awful play. Didn't deserve to win.

    Is McFadden the offensive coach?

    I know our defence was poor today, but our bigger long-term problem is how little we have in attacking structure, variation and set plays, which is quite ridiculous given the arsenal we possess out the back. How can we possibly be one of the lowest point-scoring teams in the comp (only 5 below us)? This is not where I saw us lacking in 2018, especially after the first few rounds.

    Perhaps Payten can fix it in 2019.

    The only consolation is that most of the top 8 teams are slipping up in games they shouldn't lately. We are not alone...close comp (he says trying to convince himself)

    A lost to a weak Penrith, Titian’s and now the Bulldogs.

    We cant win finals footy playing like this.

    One positive, RTS a machine once again.

    Few too many of the players been on this forum reading you guys gassing them up I think.

    Typical Warriors, no urgency in D and 1 out run after 1 out run. Bunch of jokers.

    Plus no Dally M points for Roger, fark!!

    I was more concerned about the Dogs than the Panthers.

    That laziness in defence is inexcusable at this time of the year.

    We should have toweled them up.
    Are we in some kind of private mini comp with Brisbane to finish no higher than 8th or something?

    So next week the Tigers beat Manly by 15 and we lose to Penrith by the same, the Tigers go on the following week to beat Souths by 2 and we just need to beat the Raiders but lose by 10. BOOM we miss the finals.

    I love the passion on this forum. If we didn't care it would be fucking boring.

    Oh, and conversions would have won it for us

    I think that officially ends the Warriors top 4 aspirations, they have the worst points differential and wont make up 70 points.

    Have they re-signed Luke yet? if not I honestly dont think they will make the 8 next year

    Probably gonna go against the grain but I’m not as disappointed as I thought I’d be, Dogs have despite their results always competed through adversity and managed a couple of decent scalps.
    Though we showed decent composure in the second half to get back into it and almost take it to golden point- if not for 8 shitty ref influenced points right before half time we likely win.
    A loss isn’t necessarily the worst thing to happen 5 wins in a row is now easier than the 8 wins that would have been needed. At least now we shouldn’t be complacent
