Kev Walters was an absolute embarrassment in the commentary tonight, it was like he thought he was sitting on his couch cheering the Broncos home. Pretty pathetic really.

Like I said earlier in the week, Souths will lose so we can hate them and the Broncos even more.

Souths are finished in this comp, they're on the slide
Yep. They hit form in the middle of the season.

Our best bet now is to knock out Warriors or St george
Brisbane will make it because the NRL said so
Only the saints look bad enough, but they have us covered on F/A by 99 points.

Us playing them is probably the only thing giving us a chance. If we rack up a score it is worth twice as much.

Otherwise they have a soft run, as do the warriors.

Broncos still have the roosters, could help us.

All these things are useless really, we just have to win and keep winning and in most seasons someone chokes badly enough that 9th can sneak into 8th. The NRL loves the drama, it gives uncle Gus a reason to keep gasbagging on.
Geez, I wish that it was "worth twice as much", but I haven't had a drink today OMT. Yourself?

He means towards for and against. The winning margin would be doubled as it gets added to us and taken off them. Still a bridge to far imo but you never know
You're both right:

Drink/s - correct
CFK - correct in interpreting my post and I agree it's a bridge too far, but if you keep winning you give yourself a chance.

Yep. They hit form in the middle of the season.
Missing Inglis Doueihi Johnston and Jennings
Points points points and points
That's why they are slipping

Huh, have you been drinking as well? It makes no difference CFK as it is relative only to Saints, so there is no doubling effect for the for and against.

I switched off after the Broncs 3rd try, the bunnies just weren't there.

oh well, as long as we keep winning at least. But have to hope the Warriors, Sharks, Dragons or Broncs lose at least 2 more games

That game Souths v Melbourne two weeks ago took a lot out of both teams.
Souths smashed them, their defence that night was brutal & when I found out Melb faced Cronulla the next week I was on the Sharks $$$....Backed Broncos twice last night straight out and -5.5...there was a big plunge on them.
Souths another tough one las week v Roosters, theyve got a 10 day turnaround before Canberra which should help and see some injured players return

Was atrocious. Shouldn’t be commentating.
I did not notice at all was it him on Ch 9? I really felt like ringing Ch 9 and telling them to keep him and get rid of silly-talk Gould. I hope he does not go downhill into silly talk.

Kevin Walters is a real critter, isn't he...?

Looks like an Orc and has to be up there for worst commentator and coach ever.

Face for radio... But no charisma or intelligence for that either.

Yeah it’s a joke
Roberts gets bundled into touch
Touchy puts his flag up
Pocket refs all good with it..
Main ref says penalty Broncos
:brick:
He was called held, so what else could have been done.
That’s my issue
He wasn’t held !
I didn't hear a held call
I heard it very clearly on the Channel 9 feed, it just came when they were already barrelling him over and couldn't really stop.

I find it unbelievable that he is a commentator at all. Must be somebody's mate.
