I understand your pain dear friend but trust me when I say there will be a light at the end of the tunnel one day or another and your club will become a finals contention club again.Rebuilds f****** suck
My club was in a once-twice-thrice-how many times rebuild for pretty much 10-15+ years (most of my life lol) and especially when you support a club outside of the state you live in and only get to see your club 1-2 a year at most, you watch some pretty horrendous results occur live and you always ask to yourself if the pain of rebuilding all the time will ever end at your club. It was only ever since Fages & Nobes joined our club in 2017 in which the ball started moving in our rebuild from a bottom 4 team to a top 4 team now and even that, we have been so lucky in some many ways with that so I can't whinge there. The main thing is though all the pain from losing now and before will turn into more excitement and emotional when your club starts winning again on a more regular basis and makes finals
So far this season though, your club has been doing pretty well with getting some good wins under the belt early on in the season. Yes, they were wins against lower-ranked opposition don't get me wrorng, but it's nice to get those wins early to allow the club to have a purpose to keep winning throughout the season and not worry have to look at the future in Round 8 sitting at 18th position. In fact, your club actually looked quite good in the 1st half against the Eagles and should seriously take out some positives of that for the younger group of players that look quite good already.
The other thing as well is that your club seriously did well last year to finish where you were, given the whole COVID situation and not playing at your home for most of the season and you should seriously be applauded for that given the squad you had in your disposal compared to the Eagles that whinged there whole way through the QLD bubble and got knocked out, 1st week of finals even though they have a very good playing squad.
Just enjoy the ride of the rebuild mate with the group you have now though, sure it f****** sucks right now and it seems like your questioning if the team will ever be good again, but trust me when I say my team had been in rebuild mode for 10-15+ years and we have found the light at the end of the tunnel now. Every team finds the light at the end of the tunnel when they rebuild in the end (maybe not Gold Coast yet lol) but it just takes longer for interstate clubs like ourselves and yours to rebuild, that's all but it will happen one day where you team becomes good again
Anyways, good luck for your team on Sunday against our mob as well and hopefully we see a cracking 4 quarter performance from both teams out there like last year encounter was
