St Merge Choke-a-warra Dragqueens are lucky to stay in the 8 if they keep going at this rate. To me it seems like August 2009 is the same as August 2010. The choke season has just begun.

Just imagine what the news paper headlines will say if the Dragons were to loose to the Roosters. "Dragons Choke On Cock"

If they lose next week, then i think it's fair to say that they have offical chocked. But i reckon they will come out firing.

i think next week will be a real test for them. the roosters are the form side of the nrl atm and if the dragons can somehow get a win it will get a lot of people off their backs

it doesnt seem to bother bennett according to media after the broncos game

Is it they are choking, or is it just that the other teams have been stepping up at this stage of the year? Cos I don't think they've been playing any different then they have been all year..

For me they started choking ever since Mark Gasnier returned, which was against the Panthers. From that point on they won just 1/4, though it was all very close games where they lost by 1-5 points, they had two games at OKI Jubilee Oval and lost to an out of form Titans side without Greg Bird and Ashley Harrison (?).
They just keep going to their left side over and over again in each attacking raid, just like the Panthers but they bomb it up. Penrith has more chance of scoring from kicks as most of our tries were kind of lucky, with the bounce favouring our way but with the Dragons, since every team knows there formula so well (Hornby > Boyd > [Cooper] > Morris) they'll know when to put pressure on Boyd or Hornby whenever to force the error, thats what the Broncos exposed.

If the Dragons do somehow beat the Roosters next week, then I'm not sure whether they have truly choked or not :L . But if the Roosters win comfortably, not only have the Dragons choked, they have given up their outright first position.

They all been close games but on the Titans game, you'd expect the Dragons to beat the inform Titans comfortably. Let alone the inclusion of anorexic Gaz.

If they lose to the Roosters, then we can say they are choking. They will be lucky to win against the Roosters, they're in great form.
Soward definately needs to stand up and deliver in the next few games.

Can't really say they're choking when it's round 22 and they're first...

No its called coughing, its a symptom and one of the first signs of choking. Its quite common in Dragons

Every year its the same, some team does well and in the last quarter they lose a few and they class them as chokers. Broncos it is every year, and they hate it...now its not the broncos classed as them and look whats happening...they are doing what they hated everyone doing to them..

Might i add even though every year people say broncos are choking and wont make it to the finals yet do every year. So don't fret Dragons fans, being chokers you will probably be in the Grand Final.

tbf despite the lads not playing well, they arent really gettin beaten convincingly. the last few losses have been close games and they've been very much in the contest. still losing is losing and im looking for the boys to lift over the coming weeks and get the the finals in form.

Never mind 2009. I was reading through wiki on an article on the Dragons team and they seem to have a long history of choking. 1992, 1993, 1996 GF they couldnt make the cut. Between 2003–2008 under Nathan Brown, there were high expectations for the strong side, but they ultimately choked.

Spot on dragons10. Gasnier's return has unbalanced the Dragons in defence as well as attack.

Nahh if you guys havn't noticed ever since Micheal Weyman has been out the Dragons havn't been going forward which makes no room for the backline to move that is why gasnier isnt looking that flash. But this week with Weyman back the Dragons should hit form again.
