    Great stuff GROTD.
    Poster of the year in my opinion.
    Joins the forum in time for the Broncos to get the spoon for the first time.
    Winning.

    This reads it was posted by a 12 year old Bogan who thinks going to Cavill Avenue means he is "well travelled".

    By the way Fast Forward debuted in 1989, and Joh resigned in disgrace in 87.

    Ch9 said after the gam they were going to discuss the 17th team, but here in Melbourne Ch9 went to the news before anything was mentioned?

    Good to see the players publicly thanking Vlandys for all he has done for the game this year.

    By holding up a trophy they may not have won if he didn’t get the game going again? Weird.

    Yeah, all those Victorians on the winners podium last night really stuck it up PVL.

    Did you ever watch the bloody show?

    There were plenty of skits on it that parodied Sir Joh, especially their send ups of ACA.

    What sort of wanker bases their worth on how many cities they've visited?

    This obsession you have with "bogans" is bizarre, and reeks of insecurity.

    "Someone once looked at my mum and sister funny"

    That doesn't make you sound like a dumb redneck at all.

    Not knowing the difference between "there", "their" and "they're", which is a mistake you've made in the past, is a characteristic of a "dumb redneck".

    Are you stupid enough to think you're now a member of high society because you've travelled to Melbourne?

    That's how you're coming across.

    Not just Queenslander’s mate, every state cops it but once the serve is returned they go to pieces. Apparently its the only place in the country that has “culture” (whatever that means) which I assume is what they call sitting in a laneway drinking a coffee.

    What V’Landys is aware of is the constant migration of fumble loving Victorians to Queensland (which is their reference to the Gold Coast) because they like holidays there so want to live there. Letting Brisbane run with a single NRL team gives the AFL equal presence (as on the GC) hence his push to bring in that second team and reinforce the heartland. Potentially a third team one day on the Sunshine Coast isn’t out of the question either as the temp status of the Storm demonstrated this year.

    He’s a great leader. He knows how to unsettle the AFL people that have had a charmed run for 30 years and journos doing their mudslinging for them. Robert Craddock attempting to stick the boot in yesterday in another death riding article, by reporting origin 3 in Brisbane is struggling to sell tickets despites sales not opening tomorrow is a prime example. V’Landys will hit back at that stuff.

    Yes I saw that and was thinking great some news and plans at last. Alas I think it had to do with the Coolangatta Koalas they advertised with Wendell.

    I agree with this. How does a born and bred Victorian, hardcore Melbourne Storm supporter feel about statements like this?

    I love it that he throws jabs at the AFL but to include the Victorian comment is throwing jabs at some of our RL family

    Do you really think PVL’s comment will unsettle the AFL? Hardly. It appears PVL’s vegetarians in Queensland like meat and also ABBA. His stuff is funny but of little consequence. The good news is that in VIctoria no one knows who he is and whatever derogatory comments he makes will have zero affect on the popularity of RL. We will just have a chuckle and and continue winning just about everything.
