    Yes that's correct. I would have liked to be at your special Bronco's party today actually, but finals prep got in the way

    Side has been managed poorly for last few seasons, makes you wonder if the assistant coach is making any real difference. We've carried Boyd and Thaiday for the last few seasons, Mccullough is too slow for a modern day hooker, Milford isn't a 5/8 and should be at fullback, most of our forwards looked like school boys against the Dragons forwards.

    Sorry there is a no dickheads policy at Bronco parties which of course rules you out.

    Simple dossier on the broncos side.

    No chiefs. You need game managers these days.

    Too many weak defenders. Roberts, Milford, Nikorima are absolute liabilities. They need lots of time in the sandpit.

    They play nothing but highlight reel footy. Roberts makes a break every 12 games and everyone starts frothing. Is it worth it? 25 round competition plus finals and I doubt their grind ability.

    Reliance on officials for easy outs and territory.

    Other than that you have the makings of an ok footy side

    Pretty fair summary, and I have to agree re the defence comments.

    Defence has been an issue for the last few years.. isn't Demetriou the defence coach?

    Roberts hardly sees the ball compared to what he was getting at the Titans

    "reliance on officials for easy outs and territory"

    by how much should we come last on the total penalties received count before this myth is buried?

    They spent too much time conducting their dick measuring comp that nobody noticed there isn't a set of balls to speak of at the top. Bennett and white hang your f**ken heads.
    Next year will be significantly better with Gillette, sua and bird all looking for starts.
    Fifita is that good maybe he can move into the halves?........... That's a joke but the merkin is a gun

    If you examine penalty counts without attempting to infer they advantaged or disadvantaged any side you'll find that the penalty blitz in the first half of the season almost completely passed the Broncos by. The Broncos were not involved in one match all year with over 20 penalties, whereas these were commonplace up until Origin time.

    This is why Broncos received so few penalties. They conceded few penalties as well. Bronco games had on average 14.7 penalties per match. The most penalised side, the Panthers, had 18.4 per match and 6 with over 20 penalties. Almost all of those penalty counts were pretty close, a good deal went our way, very often all one way in the first half and then all the other way in the second, but there were always heaps of penalties in our games.
