I don't think we will win another game even if we are playing the Panthers and eels. Team looks like they have packed it in for 2015 and that is troubling. Raiders performance against the Titans was perfetic and we made the Titans look like a top 4 team.
Luckily for us the Tigers have imploded and the Farrah situation should mean they get the spoon. Raiders finish the bottom 4 is no real improvement this season had so much potential to end it with a another bottom 4 is a massive disappointment and you question whether we will make the top 8 next year.

Pro's 2015
Possible highest point scorer.
Possibly no cap fines. (fingers crossed)
Hoots write ups.

Con's 2015
Worst home ground record ever.
Most fined coach.
Missed the finals for a third year in a row.
Most uses of cliché's in press conferences.
Our captain.
A hot favourite to collect the wooden spoon.
Worst defensive team in the comp.
No emerging talent identified.
Children are the greatest advertisement for birth control.

If this is the only issue you guys have with my list, I'm on track.

And neither Bateman or Barnett have emerged imo, well not enough to displace a first grader in any case, so until they do that they're not worth looking at.

It's not the only issue. Most people probably just took it as a troll post and moved on.

I cant believe someone thinks Bateman is emerging talent right now, Barnett is very close to a first grade spot IMO, young Croker is emerging and if that goldcoast game is anything to go by young Lewis will be capable of being turned to pulp when taking the dominant role... Theres a spot for that in our first grade atm

the kids last name is Croker, if you dont think the raiders will stick him somewhere in the team regardless of defensive inability or performance then you've been hitting the pipe

Don't worry guys and girls - we have the most experienced coach in the game when it comes to wooden spoon dog fights.

It really is quite sad. This team should be nowhere near the spoon, yet it almost boils down to Monday night's game against the Panthers.

Despite all this, our coach reckon's we're ahead of where he expected us to be two years into his tenure.

So much promise and so little performance...

If it wasn't for the current basket case that is the Tigers that could easily be the finish for the Knights and Raiders too... As the Tigers are going to be 16th and there were only 15 teams back then I guess it's pretty similar... Ten years on, same ****...

If we haven't won at least 5 out of the first 10 games next year I think we should start looking for a new coach

Hahah! Oh dear!

What needs to happen for this? I assume the knights and Tigers still need to both win next week?
A win tomorrow gets us out of this **** show?

If we lose both and the knights and tigers win next week, and Titans win this week or next we're last.

Also, the Titans are a chance of beating the Dragons today and the Tigers could beat them next week too

This is a pretty real possibility. The Raiders need to win
