    Couldn't be bothered with reading all the threads, but Saint_JimmyG is correct.

    Yep, there will be a premiership won in 2018.
    Won’t be by us though.

    From what I have seen though, it's common practice by historians to state a decade starts @ 0 and ends in 9:

    "With the sole exception of the very first decade (1-10 AD), western historians believe that every subsequent decade begins on a year ending in zero, e.g. 1920-29, because the year ending in zero is nevertheless a full year."

    Most references to a decade on the internet refer to decades in this way however the Gregorian calendar doesn't actually have a year 0 as the starting point (or even a year at all). BC ended at 1 and AD started at 1.

    So technically Jimmy is right, but based on modern definitions, penguin is right.

    This the only sensible response so far. I was tempted to write something similar but immature arguing is more fun.

    Also - I was hoping Jimmy would call me a Nazi.

    Yes they have had some decent individual players, but as an area across a wide range of sports, won nothing.

    Ohhh, a basket ball title.

    The players were ours anyway, ( ours equals Saints) St George always had access to the players, the Illawarra area was always recognised as being St George, we did not need to give away a JV just to keep our access to the player pool.

    We already had access.

    PSA.

    This man is a dumbmerkin.

    Any opinion expressed by this man should remain unread, if you happen to accidentally read it, you should immediately forget what you saw, lest you be tainted by the foul stench of dumbmerkinery.

    I never really thought everything was pointing towards a premiership this year, but I did think we were a genuine chance. I did however think that everything was pointing towards a minor premiership. Since then we have lost 5 of our last 6 games. It is too bad to be true. We have gone from being the best team in the comp to the worst team in the comp during one season? If we would have beat Wests, Parra and Warriors, like I expected us to, we would have still been outright leaders on 34 points and with a better points differential.

    Nope. When you're counting objects you start at one. When you count time, it starts at zero. Grab a stopwatch and see for yourself.
