    OK so Hindy need to pick 20 of the remaining 23 games right to get above the 85%

    I’ve got a bad feeling about this season. There was too much hype around us in the off season and we have traditionally never handled that very well.......

    Traditionally? The last time there was any hype about us was 2010, and only two players from that era are still in the team.

    Well many experts tipped us to make the top 4 but after last weeks performance we didn't look like a top 4 side. Then again its only Round 1 and the Roosters were beaten as well. Hopefully the Eels willl bounce back and play a lot better in controlling the game. If they lose this one, Id be quite concerned, I know teams have bounced back after 0 and 2 but I have a bad feeling this would mentally hurt them a bit.

    Would it hurt them anymore than being 2 and 0 and then loosing the next 4 in a row?

    We lost 3 tries each, away from home, to a team paying the same top eight odds as us. In round one FFS. The Roosters got beaten by the Tigers. It's round one. It is meaningless. The only thing that matters is missing the two points.
    Ok I see you addressed that here.
    Why be concerned? There is a roughly fifty-fifty chance of losing this one as well. The team would be pretty weak if they let that affect them. They would be at least as weak as their wrist-slashing fans.

    Last year we won the first 2 then lost 4 in a row. I'm pretty sure we were writing the team off after round 6 last year like we are in round 1 this year.

    It was about that time Kenny Edwards returned from his suspension. I hope BA doesn't wait that long to put him in this year.

    Yep, we look a totally different team when he is in the side. Stats tell us this as Pou would say.

    I don’t need stats to know I like the look of the side when Edwards is part of it.

    Just tipping.

    You are Mr 100% at the moment but enjoy it while it lasts because there’s no doubt that you’ll be much less than Mr 85% soon.

    I’ve incorporated a new rule that if you fail to tip who will win a Parramatta game then by default you get 0 for that round.

    Best of luck merkin.

    It wasn’t. He was pulling his dick.

    There are some new metrics that have been incorporated this year to ensure that there is a responsible, evidence based assessment in 2018.

    Welcome to a new era of governance and accountablility Mr “85%”

    Show me the stat for that. I was listening to the radio and Parra started faves....
    Panthers blew out. They brought up how Eels opemed at $2.35 but now faves. Lot of money come for them.

    Only Ram and hindy111 knew an Ambush was coming.
    Mr 200%

    Just need the winner thanks. That's the only component that is relevant.

    Manly has been registered Mr 50%.

    It's certainly possible, just like the Panthers winning at home was possible.
