    Those Gregorians, what a funny bunch!

    Love their music though.

    Yeah, the year 2000 was the final year of the 90s (as you’ve explained). It was also the end of the 20th century.

    I don't like their calendar but I quite like their chanting.

    Anyway - despite the fact I have way more important things I should be doing - I Iooked up the decades and found this wikipedia page which defines the 2000's as 2000-2009

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000s_(decade)

    Since it conforms to my opinion, I am going to completely rely on it.

    Wikipedia is hardly a credible source.

    I’ll ask again. When you count to 10, do you start from zero or one?

    There’s your answer.

    I consider any source that agrees with me a credible source.

    When I count to 10 I start from a base of zero.

    If I started from a base of 1, I’d be cheating.

    I find it fascinating that a thread titled "Everything is pointing towards a premiership 2018" , a thread that was undoubtedly started to encourage hope and the belief that the impossible is possible, has morphed into a debate by some obviously intelligent individuals about the correct protocol for counting to 10.

    If any of you blokes start sticking sharp objects in your eyes or find yourself rocking in a corner while licking the walls, please share your thoughts with us, we understand "Mary Syndrome" and we're here to help.

    Imagine how boring this thread would be on the Melbourne forum.

    Original poster: "Everything is pointing towards a premiership 2018"

    Everyone else: “sure is!”

    You forgot to add that in the Melbourne forum it would be 3 months between the opening post and first reply...

    I bet you say “one” and not zero.

    Allow me to express things in a different way. When a footy team wins its first premiership, you wouldn’t start from a base of zero.

    Bigot.com?

    I guess you know that as an editable source, Wikipedia can be changed by anyone at anytime?

    What did we expect, Illawarra never won anything.

    Lots of non performing kids, youth unemployment, high drug users, low income, high portion unemployed, high welfare.

    Yep, real great joint partner.

    Like putting QANTAS with Malaysian Airlines

    Cooper, Morris, Hornby, Creagh, Young, Prior, Merrim and (if it weren’t for injury) Hunt.

    Yes, the Illawarra side of the JV hasn’t contributed or “won anything”.

    Short memories as the Oils used to say.

    I reckon we’re about 3 or 4 comments away from proving Godwin’s law.

    Methinks you’re confused with schadenfreude.

    Count ‘em: 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989 and 1990.

    10 years.

    of course you would.

    before they won that premiership, how many premierships did they have?

    there's your base. you count up from there.

    The problem with this is that the Gregorian calendar states that the new millennium started on 1 January 2001,

    So, where does the year 2000 fit in?

    Answer: at the end of the previous decade i.e. the 1990s.

    As stated, it was the last year of the previous century.

    Correct. The base starts from one onwards.
