    All it changed was the order in which Parra sent them packing

    Storm are a bad matchup for Parra. They won’t get the open free flowing game they want, they’ll have to tough it out which we know they hate. Storm might get a scare but I expect them to win and do it fairly comfortably by 14 or so.

    Only one team has gone from wooden-spooners to premiers in consecutive years (magpies in 34)

    roosters came close in 10.

    I'm on board the parra train.

    I just forgot the game earlier this year.

    Hmm this will be interesting then. Parra should be motivated, Storm should be feeling confident they can do it again.

    And Soward’s milk of epic proportions which cost Bulldogs the win against them.

    Storm will get their act together and win convincingly. Hope Parra bash them at least

    The record margin in finals to last only a single week.

    Melbourne to score a googol in the first half

    Yeah but Parra played the 8th placed team and Melbourne played the 4th placed team, so it's not like Parramatta earnt a home final at all this week. You want to earn home finals, finish in the top 4.

    There couldn't be a more emptier feeling in not advancing past the second week of the finals after getting the minor premiership.

    It's not like us north of the border would be affected by a meteor.

    that's the top 4 advantage

    the top 4 games are tougher than the bottom 4, so losing top 4 isn't as bad

    The 5 seconds in which they scored the winning try.
    Doesn't count. Storm would have run 5th on the number of games they won.

    Both the 2009 Roosters and last year's Eels had made the top 4 the previous year. It was the wooden spoon year that was the aberration.
