    Yeah whatever mate continue to live your life in complete denial you are a salary cap cheat with the most disgraceful record ever. No remorse whatsoever. 996A6633-BC38-4177-8380-20A5DBA62F82.jpeg

    I wasn't really being serious but since you want to debate the matter, the Eels didn't make it to the GF by being lucky, they got there by beating the other finalists, luck had nothing to do with their results

    and as for the the Broncos ? lol, well they have such a great finals record dont they, we'd have been pretty happy to play them in the GF

    Interesting scenario but Remember the dogs were without Brett Kimmorely week 1 of the finals. The week before when they were playing for the Minor Premiership without him Wests beat them by 30

    Unfortunately the game hasn't recovered as well as your scum club has. Boring wrestling and grubby shit for nearly 2 decades now. Went from exciting open football in 2005 to the snoozefest we have now.

    The only highlight of Melbournes dominance is Manly raping them 40-0

    I honestly thought that was one of Latrell's Instagram posts of a fishing trip back home in Taree.

    The luck was by avoiding the storm. If they played them week one or in the prelim then eels don't make the grand final.

    Do you reckon Hindmarsh has it written into his contract with Fox that Smith isn't allowed to join in on the "haha you've never won a premiership" banter?

    Cam Smith is the best league player since Arthur Beetson. 400 NRL games, captained Australia to two world cup victories...... show some respect!

    Yeah, he's a great player. No question. Best of the NRL era, probably. Incredible ability.

    He's also a cheat. Fair ernough? It's possible to separate the incredible ability from the fact he managed himself during a time when he was part of a salary cap rorting effort, he's a grubby prick on the field and is a wannabe referee in a player's body. Plus anything else you want to believe about the way he's conducted himself off the field in recent years.

    Predictable rubbish 10 years on from ex Storm players about overcoming obstacles and adversity and coming back better too. The siege mentality. Yawn.

    Lol. He is a winner. He manipulates the refs to get the best decision for his team. All good captains try to do it. Just because your team is shit at it doesn't mean that Cam is bad. Show him respect!

    Very good point.

    So if we give Parra the win in week 1 we end up with the following

    Week 2
    Parra v Manly (winner to play Saints)
    Broncos V Dogs (winner to play Titans)

    Maybe Parra would have gotten there either way.

    I agree Hindy takes it in good humour from fletch and Marty Johns.

    if I were him I’d probably have to glass old mate Cam though if he tried to get in on it
