not taking away from '03, but this match was brilliant.

I don't think it's a compliment to say it's the best GF since 03, that just highlights how shite most of the GF's of the last 10 years have been quality wise.

Good game but it was odd in the sense it was very up and down, some great peaks from both sides but they were never really at their best at the same time. When one side lifted it seemed the other went away a bit so momentum was quickly swapped throughout the game resulting in no real grinding period that a truly classic GF needs.

But personally i enjoy GF's like 2005, 2008 and 2010 where you can ride a bandwagon a bit and enjoy the game even if it is a blow out or low quality game. Stuff like benji's flick pass and Beavers try are what i remember about gf's... not a spectacle free game like last night. (Jennings try was good but it's jennings, who gives a f**k and SBW is not a spectacle)

The entertainment was great ... Although I'm not so sure about the Russell Crowe drummers.
The game itself was one of the best. Michael Jennings try was sensational.

My whole season felt like that!

Whinging at the quality of that game is like looking back at an awesome experience involving Jen Hawkins, Miranda Kerr and tub of blue vein, nd thinking it was but a mere wank!

WTF would have made it better? 4 sticks and 2 hours of aimless fumbing?

It was more the officiating that ruined the spectacle. The only thing good about last night was the footy being played. But with all the dud calls going either way and the Roosters getting a major rub of the green it ruined the spectacle. Having said that to come from 18-8 down against a Manly side renown for being ruthless is gutsy and shows how good of a side the Chooks really are. Surely any contract negotiations for the Wolfman will have been flushed down the toilet as well. Just an abysmal performance. Toovey should have hooked him.

As a game of footy it was a good watch. Plenty of attack on show, some good defence, and a competition for the majority of it. A few clanger decisions and the worst of two bad choices won, but that doesn't detract from the quality of the game.

SKD is the only possible player that could look more like a mong whilst scoring a try.
Should be an award for it.

Maybe, not relevant. After all, I'm not a male model so my looks aren't really all that important.

May have looked like a Mong, but how many people have scored a try to take the lead in a grand final whilst playing on with a broken jaw

Great game. Many neutrals or people I know who are not interested in RL watched it, and enjoyed it.
