    i think Storm will be too good. Reminds me of the 09 gf where Storm went into the finals not making much headlines while going about their business and letting Parra (Dogs) getting all the attention.

    Except Parra scraped into the 8 and the Dogs were the minor premiers

    Hopefully the most recent cheats with remnants of their illegally assembled squad won't get near this prize.

    Hoping that the Storm will win but can't help but feel that everything is being set up for an "upset" and Dogs will get up.

    Dogs by 8.

    Has potential to be one of the best grand finals in recent years. I am really looking forward to the game.

    Also, people need to get over the Storm, and even the Bulldogs, breaking the salary cap. It is in the past, both teams were fairly punished.

    Just enjoy these two marvelous teams play out for the big prize this year.

    Every finals game this season has been won by the higher ranked team (premiership order). So if that was to continue then the Bulldogs should win.

    But I don't like Canterbury so for the next week I have become a Storm fan.

    I hope the Dogs win.
    Couldn't stomach the inevitable talk about redemption for the storm if they do.

    Should be a close game. Although I anticipate that Cityrail management will be biting their nails and hoping for a Doggies win.
