It is always hard to tell because a high percentage of our fanbase wear the pink, If it was all black then these things are easier.

I did notice a high amount of neutral fans wearing other teams jerseys
Maybe they gave them away to neutrals?

South’s + Parra both missed the Finals this year after being defeated in the GF by the Panthers the previous 2 years. Hopefully Brisbane are next.
That is a good point. Will the Broncos take this loss as bad as Parra and Souths did? A couple of early losses will no doubt draw negative conclusions. IMO, Brisbane are a better outfit compared to these two mentioned clubs, and will strive on to make the top 8 again.

or Penrith had they not taken Murdoch's 30 pieces of silver.
Penrith were neither wanted by the ARL or NEWS LTD from the start. It was a last hour meeting with NEWS that Penrith convinced them to take them on.

The bit about this is, when Gould and co were running around in signing clubs and players for the ARL, why were Penrith given the cold shoulder?

Why are so obsessed with me? It’s getting sad. Almost as sad as Cleary’s performances for NSW.
His percentage of wins will gradually improve. For the sake of the bigger picture, it really doesn't matter when a Panther three peat has been attained.

Generally it is almost impossible to dominate rep games.

If a half goes well then the outside backs are scoring. Someone scores a double then they are going to be the man of the match.

Look at the last series NSW won, Tommy got player of the series. Latrell would of been next best. The halves are often overlooked
That match in Perth which NSW murdered Qld, Cleary and Luai put on a clinic. The plaudits were already decided before the kick off if NSW won. Can't compete against brown bag media.
