    Wow.

    Congratulations Sky and the Warriors for the documentary series.

    Episode two was up lifting and insightful....one of the very best ( when we were Kings is still my number one).

    Thanks for letting us in....I've been a harsh critic....but that show gave us insights into where the club is aiming....and reinforced all I have invested in this lot come times past.


    All I need now is to see effort. It is no longer about the score or the position on the table...I'm gonna stick by our boys staunchly if they try.

    That Doco brought me back to why I support our boys.

    It's us against the toughest sporting comp in Australasia all over again for me.

    They are better than us....but If we realise that our job is to go fk their shit up for 80....then I'm happy no matter what the final outcome.

    Refs be dammed.....Salary cap superside cheats like the Bunnies be dammed.

    Injuries be dammed.

    Lose well boys and you will build our house of pain again. From those foundation's you will be up there in times to come.

    Dissenters and player agents be danamed.

    Deliver on your words....Kick chase....and the word Fuck is apparently the word for process behind the scenes....follow
    your teacher you bastards ...go u good things.

    The players have set themselves up for ridicule if they fail to put in....good on them for taking the risk.I

    It's up on the Sky Go website if you have a Sky account. Just watched it. Little bit let down compared to the first episode - I felt like there were more punches being pulled this time around and it was hard to get a gauge of how much the team is really committing to the cause this season. Lots of cheesey "same old" talk from the players at the end, but until I see a difference with their performances on the field I'll struggle to believe it.

    Key takeaways for me:

    Blake Green is a smart footy brain and a great talker. I have no doubt the team will be improved when he is on the field... so probably he picks up a season ending injury in game 1, hah.

    Good to see Fusitua either being a good talker or developing into one, we need more of that in the team. Say what you want about the signings of Adam Blair/Tohu Harris, but I expect them to bring a lot more talk into the team during a game, which can only be a good thing.

    I cannot stand listening to Issac Luke talk about culture and commitment, when he has clearly shown none during his tenure at the club. It boils my blood.

    Of course It's different. I'm establishing the fact that he has had success. He has had the best grounding of any nz coach ever.

    Aussie coaches apart from Cleary fail to get the best out of our boys. So for mine, a Kiwi, especially a Polynesian, who has as good a knowledge of the game as an Aussie has the added advantage of relatability .

    He has been assistant coach to Bennet and Bellamy for many seasons. He's hardly a noob.

    The only reason He's tainted is because He's not Aussie. There are so many bad coaches that get myriad chances. A kiwi doesn't get that luxury because we are outsiders and apparently inferior.

    Given more chances SK will shine. I'll take any of you on with this topic.

    But re: the doco, it is just a snapshot, but you can sense the type of relationship there is between coach and players. It's business. You can also see that the young full as in general struggle mentally. Pretty much everything people have commented, good or bad about the club was there to see.

    One's interpretation of the facts as a whole is the important part. Mine is that they are weak-minded and the coaches and trainers are trying to change that. Same as Cappy, Cleary and Anderson were doing. And for Mine, SK has as good if not better grounding than them but has an added edge in his ethnicity.

    We have to wait and see if it works. To me success is inevitable. The club only has to stick with him. The results will come. Changing coaches only halts progress .

    The weird thing for me was Adam Blair talking about winning the comp being a dream. That thinking absolves our players/staff of responsibility for our performance.

    I'm pretty sure the Bellamys, Flanagans, Greens, and Bennetts of this world aren't planning or hoping for a dream. Winning is an outcome of the strategies, tools, resources, and effort we put into things.

    Winning Lotto is a dream, a chance. Winning the NRL is anything but (or we'd have one by now).

    watched part 2, just realised that they got Budge in to narrate the highlights of the 2nd trial, as if it he were there live, instead of those rando's from the livestream. That sort of thing should emphasise that its been presented exactly how they want it to be presented.

    some of the things kearney was going on about seems very basic stuff, but again, they are hardly likely to include anything too interesting.

    Boys come across well

    I liked it, yeah Mooks is pushing the basics but you gotta agree we need that, also focused a lot on staying with the process, taking ownership, grinding the opposition down etc, all the basics for a pro but stuff he has to teach our team from scratch.

    Toopi is King 1st Grade Fringe

    Just watched the second episode, and to be fair, it really was a let down on what the first promised.

    I'm not sure what they were trying to prove, but it really didn't do much for me, infact the cheerleaders at half time did more for me than this series. I'm warriors through and through and don't need pom poms to keep me interested.
