Re: Team V Parra

Yeah, I've read all that crap. I think the term "dominated" is over-used. I haven't agreed with Sheens' selection policies all the time (JMo), but for the most part he's been prettty good at bringing young blokes through. If he thinks Shirnack, Moors and the others mentioned don't strengthen the squ...

Re: Team V Parra

In all seriousness, the future can get bent. I'm more concerned about now than next year. Shirnack, Moors etc can wait if Sheens wants Skando there. I have no doubt that Skando is there for exactly what Geo said, to steady the ship where needed and his influence on Fifita etc. You know what you'll g...

Re: Team V Parra

7.625m last game... Yep. Ellis' average was 7.533 The Todd's 6.363 Heighno 6.928 Fulton 7.076 Gibbs 8.000 Skando is there to do a job for the coach. The criticism of the big fella is about as unwarranted as is possible. Does anyone really think he's there because he's spent all season begging Sheen...

Re: Video Ref

Consistency for mine is the real problem. 3 similar incidents over the weekend, 2 get a green and one gets a red. One on Friday night and one today gave the try when without a VR neither would have been given and neither was 100% conclusive. Brown's should have been given or the other two should hav...

Re: How did Merrit stay on the field?

The only thing that kept him on, I think, was that they didn't have the perfect TV angle. He should have gone, for sure. He actually jumped up and smashed him. Nothing but face. The crap thing about the video ref is that pre-video ref, he'd have been marched for sure. Now they're just too bloody sca...

Re: lawrence kicking

It's staggering that we haven't sorted something out over the season.

We're about to go into the finals (hopefully) with two goalkickers, one at 60 odd percent and another who has kicked for goal 1/2 a dozen times.

Not too flash.

Re: Folkes deserves more credit for where we are than Sheens

I don't buy into the "Folkes is responsible for out ladder position" nonsense.

If Tim Sheens is responsible for our ladder position when it is 9 or lower, he's also responsible for our ladder position when it's 8 or higher.

If we make the 8, I'm happy for him to fulfil his current contract.

Re: Souff's and Ben T'eo....

Last night's game was typical Te'o for mine.

The Roosters were dominating and it was only when Te'o went off injured that I realised he was actually on the field.

5 tackles with two misses and 4 hitups in 27 minutes.

Re: is it me?

He's a rare talent. I enjoyed every minute of him tearing the Dog apart. Being a loyal supporter of one club doesn't mean you shouldn't appreciate an amazing talent playing for another club. There's a lot to like about Hayne, not the least being his loyalty to the game. Apparently AFL made him an of...

Re: The Teams we cannot beat :(

I'd like to see us get over Cronulla first and I'm not confident of that. We seem to be ok against weak, understrength or out of form teams, but up against any decent side in a bit of form we're found wanting. Not a good look at this time of year. I'd stop tinkering with the side, punt Fitzy and (Go...
