    it's the Fox way in having one commentator vying for each side. Channel nine also have adopted this method. Even if your side is getting done like a dinner,giving fans encouraging hope keeps some watching. And that is what the sponsors want.

    I think he's still a bit off 2017 form. But that looked much more like him.

    I hope he plays more like that for NSW too. We dont want him turning into Woodsy.

    Slammed with all the agreement maybe. Definitely down a bit and your ratings reflect that.

    Not to mention Tim Grant. That big take the ball up from the kick-off in SOO 1 a few years ago,then hardly a blip on the map. But to Grant's credit,he is making a good fist of if in the reserve grade.

    They give us constant reruns of particular programming adnausium,which in turn allows them more ad breaks per hour. If anyone thought we were going to get a channel with wall to wall football matches,past and present with the odd talky show,we are left somewhat again abandoned.

    If I could understand what Justin Hodges was saying I could possibly agree with you.

    I would give my Raiders ratings but it is just depressing so Josh Papalii gets a 8 and the rest best not think about.

    To be brutally honest,Canberra should have won fair and square. The refs managed to screw things up again,as it happened to us v Dogs.

    Hmmmm....you saw the Rapana try? To be honest we were a bit lucky to get away with a down performance, but thats not the same as saying the Raiders should have won.

    Sure,good teams know how to win,and crap teams know how to lose. They both get used to it. But the ref took those x factors out of the game when he made a bad decision. We were about to lose this game,but thanks to the ref,Canberra lost it instead.

    That's not really accurate in my opinion. Raiders got things in their favour. Neither team won or lost on the ref.
