A bloke in a Cronulla jersey nearly ran me over at a pedestrian crossing this morning so I'm tipping the Cowboys.

Just hope we can last the game with a fit 17 for once.

Winning is a pipe dream, but why not dream!

uh which one was that? and what about the double-movement try in that game? we were at 12-all at one point so certainly could have gone on to win it

against the Roosters we had SBW dropped ball penalty and Lui's "knock-on"

was either the roosters or Manly game pretty sure there was a ball grounded in goal that wasn't called because the player "didn't mean to" as well so he got up and got back into play

shitty calls, every team gets them, we just had our season ended 3 years in a row because of them

2015 made up for all of it though

Don't you remember the Cowboys stripping the ball in a 3 man tackle and Thurston throwing a 2 meter forward pass to score that leveled the game up in 2012?

Don't you remember the Cowboys scoring after Thurston intentionally took Gallen out of the play, bombed the lead with 10 to go and Linnett screwing the winner getting taken out by John Morris ffs? Don't you remember how piss poor the Cowboys in 2013 were failing all year and only scraping into the 8 on for and against in 2013?

Don't you remember how the Cowboys let in 30 points away from home against the minor premiers and defending premiers away from home? Don't you remember the Cowboys scoring 2 illegal tries of a forward pass and after taking Mini out in mid air in 2014? You don't remember Lui knocking on and the Cowboys barely winning any games away in 2014?

They weren't good enough in any of those games and to say they were robbed is just an excuse to blame failure. They had no possibility of making the GF in 2013 it was a miracle they even made it that far. Thurston said they weren't good enough and let themselves down in 2014, you can't be 30 points behind and blame anyone else. None of those calls ended them. The Cowboys never made the top 4 either in those years and remember no team has won a premiership from below the top 4 in 22 years and the Cowboys have no possibility of winning it this year. It's a miracle they made it this far.
