    Julian O'Neill confusing the 13-year-old boy in the dolphin mascot suit with a firelighter.

    The biggest blunder I can recall was Bill Harrigan incorrectly penalising Balmain’s Bruce McGuire “for not playing in the spirit of the game”. Seriously even though he denies it he clearly pointed in the wrong direction.
    In the old days if there were no markers you could tap the ball forward yourself and run again..usually this would create an offside play for the opposition if they were still laying around the ruck.

    Didn't someone "score" on the 10m line once, or did I dream that?

    The Qlnd hooker niggling Mark Broadhurst all game and thinking there would be no repercussions.

    I've got to go with Marty Bella having absolutely no idea which direction to play the ball in...

    Or Jason Bulagarelli dropping the ball over the line in a semi vs Easts when all he had to do was hold it & fall over. Then the rest of his life continued in pretty much the same vein, poor fella.

    Or was it Inglis who kicked that FG when they were 2 points behind? That's gotta be up there.

    And the Bronco who dropped the Winfield Cup (whatever they call it now) from the extra time kick off in the GF vs Cowgirls.

    I was in Greg Eastwood's u14 club side when he did it. Would have been his 5tj for the game

    Well, I once went crazy celebrating a "try" when a player was tackled over the 10 m line. Maybe you saw me there and share my delusions. Needless to say, the crowd was amused and I probably can't be trusted with anything I say in the future....

    Broncos fans and the Courier Mail claiming TPJ was a better player then Jason Taumololo.

    Buzz ranking Kearney as the second best coach in the NRL.

    I'm sure I saw it somewhere, might have been a "stuff you may have missed" thing in a local grade comp or something. Can't have been that good since I can barely remember it.

    Covell?

    I’ll think you’ll find he was the opposite of a blunder.
    Played well above his natural physical ability.
    Awesome goal kicker and scored some try’s he had no right scoring.
    Bloody legend in fact.

    Brett Hodgson is Ray Finkle. Not saying that QLD team wouldn't have dominated the next decade, but that pass got them a series win a year or two before time. I hope that merkin is a dribbling mess.

    He had a great action for a goal kicker. But a career percentage that stands at 75% doesn't scream 'sharp shooter' to me.

    Also nominated for a prestigious award named after himself:
