I’m not sure there’s a lot of value for anyone in a team getting a right flogging. I’ll watch the first 15 minutes - I’m not sure I can cop the commentator much longer than that anyway.
After 5 minutes it feels like >60 points

RE: 2019 NRL Grand Finals *Spoilers
I hate the roosters as much as the next guy but you have to give them credit for incredible defence. They were gone. We can only dream of that sort of commitment in defence.
For the record, I thought the Cronk sin-bin was poor. You can knock a blokes head off and get put on report but be a micro-second early on a tackle and get 10 minutes just doesn’t make sense. The professional foul rule needs to be reviewed.
The reversing of the six again call - which appears was actually correct - is something I’ve never seen before. I can only imagine it was over-ruled by Sutton. Whilst it changed that play, I think it’s a stretch to extrapolate a Raider’s win if it didn’t happen.
They just played the audio on nine and Sutton over-ruled. Three times they called ‘still last’.
RE: NRL Preliminary Final, 2005 - St George Illawarra Dragons vs Wests Tigers
How refreshing to see a game with no wrestle, no late hits on kickers and a referee willing to make decisions and not blow the pea out of the whistle. Oh, and a Tiger’s win of course.

It would be good if Josh could get his mate Ryan to come along and see what it’s really like to do it tough. It’s amazing how these kids find the strength and don’t ‘mope around’.
I think footballers sometimes forget just how good they have it.
Kudos to Josh, a generous and thoughtful effort for no personal gain.
RE: Signing Suggestions & Rumours
The player I hate most in the comp - with the exception maybe of Cam - but I would have him here in a heart beat. Would be an ideal centre for this team.
I agree with the first part but not the second. I think his best football is behind him and he’s of a culture we don’t need.
We need quality men as well as quality players. It’s hard to build a solid culture with knuckle heads.
RE: Thread closed?
Unfortunately religious and political discussions normally turn into unsavoury poop-fights. People are so fervent in their beliefs they can never be convinced there’s another alternative so there’s a massive degree of futility and frustration in trying.
Football discussion is hard enough, and we all agree on which team to follow…
