    So some may say to early to call it, but my family and I have made up our minds for next season to support another club. As much as this pains us to do, we simply are far to passionate, and get way to emotional week in, and week out watching the Warriors heartless performances. We will miss following the boy's, but it really is time for a positive change.

    This brings us to the question, who then? Before the warriors entered the comp, Manly was my team. Ridge, Toovey and Co were the club I followed. For some reason, I wouldn't support them now, not keen on DCE.

    My question to you lot is, with 16 teams in the comp, including our beloved Warriors, who, if you had a choice, apart from the Warriors would you support.

    For me, it doesn't have to be the best club at the top of the table, nor the best coach etc, it's more a club that plays with passion and pride for their jersey, and if I like one or more of the players. The Jersey IMO also plays a big part in it for me, I have to like the club colours and the jersey design.....I'm sure Mt Wellington can relate to that. :cigar:

    Anyway, be honest, if you had to pick a club outside the Warriors, who would that be, and why......

    If the Warriors suddenly went bust, I'd probably support Manly. I'd have to go for a team who wins the comp after following this bunch of fuckheads..

    Warriors will always be my number One. I just cannot change allegiances.

    However, Parramatta is my second choice team as their stadium is only a couple of Ks away.

    However, I do like watching my footy at Penrith.

    Come on Welly, no one can ever say your not the ULTIMATE WARRIOR through and through bro, but if this club wasn't in the comp, who would be your SECOND pick to support.

    Tigers.

    They have the coach we should have kept.

    A good stock of kiwis and Aussies including - Taylor, Lolohea, and Mutts.. players we didn't want to keep...

    They're a bit like the Aussie version of us right now - struggling to find their feet.

    If they turn it around next year, I'm be intrigued and pissed off at the same time....

    Warriors forever!:hilarious:

    Then in September I follow the team with the most Kiwi boys, usually the Storm so all is not lost. Shame about the actual Kiwis though, they :stinkyfeet: ATM..

    Honest I think this is worse than when Watson took over.

    I have followed Manly since they played in Auckland in about 1958. They have a lot of Kiwi members, even from way back then. I will wait for the Warriors to fold first, and I sort of hold hope that the NRL will intervene because they cannot afford to lose the NZ market.

    With the history of Eric Watson when the shite hits the fan he will be out the door and leave the mess to somebody else.

    Pretty sad really.

    TBH bruce, the Warriors will always be our family team, we have been here from the very start like most on here.

    League is huge in our family, I played for 13 years for the very same club, my father played, and latter coached for. So like your last comment, we all think its very sad as well, but sometimes you just need a break and a fresh start. The main reason for us is just being really down and upset after the team plays, it really does cause a few arguments within our home lol...

    We will always love the club, none of us are saying F this and F that, it's just what I think we need to do as a collective for now. When my boy came home from school upset, cause he is teased for wearing warriors gear to school, and asks if we can support another team, it pulls at your heart strings a little bit.

    Anyway, not at all trying to upset the forum members what so ever, no one could ever question the Warriors fans true commitment and faith, we just need to, as a family, do what's best to keep a happy environment within our home, and was just interested in fellow forum members thoughts on a second team they may follow.

    None in NRL, I'm a johnny come lately to the Warriors anyhow and have no connection or affinity with any other club in the competition.
    I follow two clubs in England, one RL and the other football. Neither have won the square root of f**k all since the 1970's so I'm used to it:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    My other two rugby league teams outside of NZ Warriors are Gold Coast Titans and Canberra Raiders but honestly if there was another team in NRL that I would recommend somebody to support other than NZ Warriors I would say Parramatta Eels. Both have strong community following and staunch fanbase and both are powerhouse who are one missing piece away from becoming genuine premiership threat the only difference is Parramatta Eels have all their pieces together. Seriously I genuinely believe that those guys are about to become next Melbourne Storm so you're going want to support somebody else, go and support them ...

    First team I supported was the bears- couldn't support them now for obvious reasons.
    Then I jumped ship to the panthers when fittler hit the scene- Can't stand Gould these days tho.
    The titans would be my go to now. Live on the gc and go to a few games.

    And FANFAN i don't for one second believe you'll be supporting another team next year. Preseason will change your mind- it's gonna be the best one ever ;)
