RE: How often do you watch NRL?
I’ll watch all our games without fail …
I’ll even miss family functions to do so
( nephew/ niece birthdays or turn up late
( 2 cars )
If we play early in the week …thurs/ Friday and win I’ll watch the rest of the round bar any hack matches like the Dogs v Titans
If we lose early on in the round I’ll lose interest in the rest of the round until the following week .
If we lose you will end up in the cooler (again )
I won’t have time to go on the live game thread …
I’ll be in Melbourne !
Hopefully I can call Billy Slater a grub 2 weeks running!
We should have a cooler chart lol
Think I’ve done 2 weeks so far …
You’d think the mods would show some compassion for my passion 🤬
RE: Round 9- Magic Round *SPOILERS
Something many probably don’t know was no sides were warming up on the surface and they had many people inspecting surface at both games we watched
Yeah I see @innsaneink point Manly lost a home game , Penrith lost a home game , Titans lost a home game ,Bulldogs lost a home game
Manly faired best climbed 2 spots despite losing by 16
Penrith lost an away game it was our home match
The Penrith game was actually their game
Remember we lost to Penrith at Campbelltown
No dopey , we lost to Penrith at Penrith Stadium.
Suncorp was our home game .
RE: 3,2,1 Thread for Parramatta Eels
Ok several posts not giving 3 2 or 1 to players have been deleted in order to make it easier on old man tiger when compiling the year to date player of the year…
I totally understand the frustration with that inept display by basically the whole team but you are just wasting your time posting it in this thread…there are many others to vent in…
It’ll be slim pickings for the old man this week lol
RE: Maguire spruiks Brooks' Origin future
Cleary and Maloney will stay in the halves now
Brooks lacks the confidence in himself to play at SOO
I know he got lots of votes in the 3,2 ,1 BUT sorry I still get angry because he continues to shelve his greatest asset …his running game
When you are one of two backs with pace, you are going to get extra attention. Happy, suggest you look at the slow backs we have and that is the No1 issue
Paws I agree to an extent…but I find it strange that when we play weaker sides he will take the line on with pure speed
Every time we play a side like Melbourne , roosters , souths or Sharks he doesn’t
Go back and watching it was if you don’t believe me
I reckon once last night he got close to full
speed , 2nd half it was
When Liddle runs it is the ideal time for Brooks to follow up next tackle when you have a team on the back foot
Main reason when you are on the back foot …you have to at some stage plant to turn around and he can tear the opposition apart in that situation
Good …so you should be able to highlight when Brooks was hitting the line at full speed
And geo your lust for Brooks is admirable …but it blinds you as well
Stats don’t tell the true picture…
I was at the game and I wasn’t sure if Brooks was even playing in the first half .
Although I was intoxicated

RE: Round 9- Magic Round *SPOILERS
On the tv they quoted 135,000 for the whole weekend, thats an average of about 17000 per game so I am guessing they didn’t count people twice like on Friday night.
Most were Queenslanders so they count both heads,
I have never seen so many inbreds at one place in my life lol
