I sit back and scratch me head, the best second rower in the world, IMO the best no9 since sliced bread, a no6 who on a bad day is better than the next and backed up by the likes of Lawerence,Moltzen,TNT,Rhino, the old war house Skando and I forgot Sause and not to mention the Aussie coach and we still keep falling over at the final jump. Their has to be something seriously wrong to have this much talent and nose dive every year. Okay, injuries,bad calls and bounce of the ball–what will it be next yaer

If your talking about since the inception of the NRL, then thats right, but if you are talking about since the top 8 has been introduced then I dont believe that is correct.
In 1995 - which I believe was the 1st year of the top 8 system - the Dogs came from 6th to win the premiership. If I remember correctly, it was supposed to be Terry Lamb's last year and they smashed a star studded Raiders side in the Preliminary Final, before going on to beat Manly (16-6 or something like that) in the GF.
P.S. I think they are also the only team to beat teams 3,2 & 1- in that order - to win the premiership but I could be wrong about that.
