TELL US: What’s the worst part about being a Blues fan?

    I’ve spent the overwhelming majority of my adult life watching New South Wales lose games of football.

    Every year, almost without fail, they find creative new ways to break your heart.

    Throwing away insurmountable leads, making stirring comebacks but falling agonisingly short, humiliating whitewashes – you name it, we’ve done it.

    Last night yet again delivered a novel form of self-destruction – getting to within a solitary try of a series victory and then spectacularly throwing it all away.

    So in the wake of another soul-crushing but probably entirely predictable defeat, we’re left picking up the pieces and negotiating that familiar Thursday morning depression that only Blues fans truly understand.

    On Roar LIVE tonight, a panel of New South Welshmen (including resident Roar court jester Dane Eldridge) are going to dissect the game and wallow in our collective misery.

    But as always we’d love to hear from you as well. So tell us: what’s the worst part of being a NSW fan?

    Is it the selectors? Is it the lingering hope? The…referees?

    Let us know in the comments what makes you angry and what kills you inside, or if you’re a Queenslander feel free to gloat and throw banter barbs our way. We’ll try to get to as many comments and statements as we can on the show.

    Roar Live will be streamed this afternoon at around 5:00pm on The Roar’s Facebook page. It will also be available as a podcast on Soundcloud and iTunes.

    Getting hassled by a parent or partner about spending too much time playing video games? Now, you can tell them the story of how some ordinary gamers scored $225k for just seven weeks of work.

        His column was special today.
        I’m not a Blues fan (surprise, surprise), but the worst part about being a SOO fan is Ch9 and Gus Gould especially.

      So every year of your adult life has been spent watching nsw lose. If you’re around my age, that means most years of your childhood was NSW winning then, doesn’t it?

      No no really no. Best streak for Nsw three in a row. Best for Qld 8. Enough said. I loved to know how many of you NSW supporters are still crying in your jerseys? Haha

        Sorta missed the point of the article I think. Hardly surprising considering the quality of your own.

      Last night was really rough. The whole 2nd half was just stressful, watching Billy slater jump into the back line movements where he’s stort of darting left and right until he finds a gap; it brought back too many memories. And it felt like the refs screwed us. Nothing went right. You felt like if Queensland had gained the lead earlier we might have switched on and came back but they timed it just right, I think that’s the most frustrating thing. They know that the only score that counts is the score when the clock hits 80:00 and they’re so good at managing their game towards that

      Listening to Phil Gould’s commentary.

      Oh, and being told each year that “this year will be different”.
