    Yeah I hope he is really hurting.
    His performance tonight should cost him his job in a fair world.

    As much as I’d have loved to win that by a more comfortable margin, it did feel exhilarating having that scramble at the end come at a halt

    He had talent as a younger player but my goodness it has taken years to finally bear fruit. Only this year he has looked like a first grader.

    Gus Gould is insufferable. He said roughly 400 times some version of "I've watched Penrith come from behind a dozen times", as though he were the only one watching those games. Then of course, they didn't. Where was the flabby windbag's chest thumping then? f**k Channel 9 are trash.

    Bellamy and Smith both looked furious at full time.
    I reckon someone had to remind them that they’d just won the GF.

    He’d been watching Tyrone May vids.

    I’d never seen a GF crowd deflate as easily as the Smugs fans tonight. Ten minutes in, limp and lifeless.

    How was Gould allowed to call that...

    Most one sided commentary.

    Channel 9 you jokers.

    He only started piping up when the Melbourne sin binnings began.
    I don’t know why his opinion is respected.
    He is very rarely proven correct when he makes predictions.
    He built his rep mansplaining the obvious to the audience after the fact.
    Total fraud. Suck shit to him forever.
    Additionally he must loathe Smith. He proved him wrong for the better part of a decade at Origin Level and many, many times for Melbourne. Pretty funny really.

    I think the Panthers overachieved a bit this year. Don't get me wrong, I think they deserved to be in the grand final but the 17 wins in a row wasn't a fair indication of their true ability. They only beat the Roosters by a point, they could have lost to the Rabbitohs if Adam Reynolds was standing just a foot back when he kicked that 40/20. The Storm just had their number all night and outclassed them in the end.
    Anyway they will be back next year and may even be premiers but there is a whiff of the 2001 Eels about them this year

    tbh I thought the Storm were f**ked circa 2013-15 when Slater had injury woes and they didn’t make any GFs. Then I thought they were f**ked from 2018 when Slater and Cronk left. The fact they have IMPROVED from 2018 to 2020, through 37 year old Cam Smith and the young guys, is extraordinary.

    Still a bunch of cheats so can't praise them.

    Penrith however choked. Big time.
