Are Melbourne finished?

What a silly topic to be brought back up
It was WAY wrong in 2014 and PROBABLY wrong now

Thus far this year they have played:
Rabbitohs
Eels
and Panthers

Three really good games and teams and they barely lost to the Eels and Panthers

That is WITHOUT DOUBT the toughest draw any team has played this year AND let us not forget they have to get back Harry Grant.

Those rule changes to make the game faster and more of a battle of whose got better cardio with less subbing is detrimental to Melbourne who are known for slowing the ruck. Have you noticed that they are getting gassed during the tail end of both halves by fitter teams?

They are not finished and they won't be until Bellamy leaves. Every time people doubt them, they respond and give the premiership a mighty shake. Harry Grant hasn't even really appeared yet, from memory. They will make the preliminary final at the very least.

It doesnt matter, win or lose they are cheating grubs.
Isn't it interesting how in every tackle Melbourne players accidentally get their arms caught under the ball or tangled in boots or something that only takes them 1 or 2 seconds to pull their arm out but its enough time to get their defensive line set and not slowing the play the ball enough to get penalised.

But but ...but according to Bellamy they don't wrestle :D

There's honestly no stopping them while Bellamy is coach. The big 3 all long gone and they're looking better than f**king ever even with a roster missing some serious talent.

They have arguably the 2 best hookers in the game fighting it out to replace the former best hooker in the game.

They have the best backup fullback in the game who looks just as good as their main fullback who will no doubt come back ready go lift them up another gear.

Halves depth not the best. But Hynes could no doubt fill in and they would be unbeatable still. It's ridiculous how good Bellamy is at finding and nurturing talent. Getting the best out of nearly everyone. When can us Storm haters finally enjoy watching them suck like we are with Broncos?

Yeah they’re gone. Couldn’t even get to 50 last night. Plus Nicho Hynes has a shit haircut.

Precisely. Even if they were found to be in breach of the cap (again) and had to offload tons of their squad, Bellamy would sign some journeyman spuds & turn them into *at least* a competitive unit.

Premiers again, I can’t see it. But they are not finished being a consistent top 5 team just yet. Munster is the key to their continued success. Other players such as the Magic Cheese or what ever they call him just don’t seem to have consistency for the week to week grind. Looks like a good bloke to have a beer with, but would disappear when it’s his shout.

f**king LOL.

OP is cooked
