    No. Eels got to the gf by not facing storm during that final series. Why reward then for that luck. Take Storm out of the equation and broncos could get through to the Grand final and beat eels

    Just while we're on milestones involving the Storm;

    On May 6 it will be two years to the day that Jeremy Latimore punched Cameron Smith in the nuts.

    Please Remember to repost on the anniversary if possible. And also if possible, accompanied by "Cam getting hit by footballer" vid. Ahh the memories.

    I can't believe it's been 10 years since this happened it doesn't feel that long ago at all. I remember watching deal or no deal that afternoon and it kept coming up during the ads for the upcoming news. Was glued to the sport news for a long time after it.

    It's a good what if.

    My first week winners are in bold. I know parra beat the dogs in week 3 but they were on a massive role by then. Under this scenario they play the dogs in week 1 a week after saints flogged them. Don't see the dogs choking.

    Week 2
    Titans
    V Sea Eagles
    Broncos V Manly

    Got both home teams winning

    Week 3
    Saints V Broncos
    Dogs
    V Titans

    I actually think your dogs were odds on to win the comp without Storm

    There is little doubt Manly would have won in 2007 IMO though.

    Yep, that's the one. Grand Final was a beautiful sunny, Sunday afternoon at Kogarah and we rolled the Storm 34-14 in front of a capacity 19,000 crowd. Latimore wrote himself into rugby league folklore and Cam Smith needed help to walk to the team bus. Great day. Apparently the season went on for several months afterwards but I'm not sure why.

    We polled fans to see if the Melboourne Storm should get their stripped premierships back, 1% said yes, 2% said no and 97% of fans said they would punch Cameron Smith in the balls if given the chance.

    I was one of the 19k there that day. I am proud to say that I almost outdone the guy who kept yelling "you're rubbish Melbourne" in the NW corner of the concourse level of the grandstand. I felt sorry for the 2 elderly Storm supporters who were sitting in front of me that had to endure the abuse that I gave their team.

    Don't forget his complete lack of concern for a clearly injured player...

    Even when we cheated we did it better than anyone else, other clubs have cheated just as badly and failed to win games in the process (Sharks aside who have outdone us by managing to cheat the cap, win a premiership and keep it, fair play to them!)
