Its the closest its felt to the 2000 season with the uncertainty around future ownership combined with terrible on-field results. l will always rate 2000 as my lowest as the NRL were losing patience with the ownership debacle and came so close to revoking their license. I honestly didn't think I was going to be watching them take the field in 2001. At least its not quite like that this time around and we saw that Watson will not just offload the club to any bidder. I'm holding my breath on this weeks signings to at least provide some positivity for next year and who knows, they may rebuild like they did in 2001, though that did involve a new coach that seriously waved the axe.
