    I've been doing the opposite to Baz. I've put myself in a chemically induced coma. Next time I wake up we'll be running onto the field

    Fair point ... i might not sleep well, worried about the game, on Friday ... so maybe a nap pre-game could be a goer too

    So, anywhere between ONE and THREE sleeps to go!!! (at each eels fan discretion)

    Melbourne have always absolutely loved an occasion. Cam Smith will break the all time game record tomorrow and it will Cronks last game in Melbourne (Unless they lose??).

    I just get the feeling we will go with them most of the way but they will get us in the end. I'm pumped for this one !

    I had thought of that but living in Wanniassa it was cheaper to snag some speed from my neighbour.

    I assume you are talking about NRL.com's team. I'm was beginning to doubt them when their list of top 50 players had Inglis & Matt Scott moving up in rankings despite having logged more minutes on PS3 NRL than playing minutes

    I am really keen to see what we throw at Melbourne tomorrow.

    And i am intrigued by how we use Semi.

    There is no doubt bellamy will have a plan to combat Semi and wont let him run wild like last time.

    It will be about having the right balance in attack by being too semi consicious to not using semi enough when attacking the try line.

    I think Cronk and Smith's kicking game, with Slater running through will account for 3 or 4 tries as Will Smith has no positional awareness and Arrrrvvvaaarrrrr will be bombed to every time they are in the 30 metre zone.

    We will be found out with these 2 weaknesses.

    I think we can match them everywhere else but with their superior kicking game and a player like Slater to run through will be too much for us and their defence is way too good for us to be chasing points.

    Plus, we can't beat the refs tomorrow.

    It's round one and Patriots often are slow in September.

    This is the NRL finals and the Storm are seasoned professionals and we haven't been there for 8 years.
