    I didn't want to rush to judgment after the game so I held my tongue, but having had some time to reflect now I have to say, I prefer it when we win.

    Given our results since then we've obviously 'learnt' from it. Have they? Last time they had such a dominant team they were cheating. If it was so easy to do without cheating why would they take that risk? I remember being suspicious of them at the time and I'm suspicious now.

    And if we ever find ourselves consistently successful I will absolutely assume we're cheating the cap again. I'll just hope we don't get caught again.

    I was half watching the game whilst at a 50th birthday party. First time I can remember not wanting to watch the game on replay.

    Simply not good enough. We need a change next season.

    Gutho as the captain walked off to the dressing room (from the warm up room) to get the players so we could take the field...
    FFS, why does every action taken have to be made into something dramatic?

    Everyone is looking for a gotcha moment. They have their personal scapegoats and follow that agenda via that bias.

    If that's true then why did the audio pick up Gutho calling BA a "useless f**king bald idiot"?

    Actually, if you listen carefully you can hear BA say "I'm thinking of starting Timmy as hooker instead of Reedy ".

    Which is when Gutho said " seriously, not that useless f**ken bald idiot."

    And the rest is history.

    That's not true.

    If it was, Gutho would have simply said "he's a machine..."

    Finally recovered enough from my trip to Magic Round to talk about it.
    Bankwest is better than Suncorp in my opinion.

    I knew it was going to be a shit performance as soon as they came out onto the field at the start of the game, they just wandered out with no energy. Body Language was very poor, when they came back for the 2nd half it was worse. Taka had his head down and shoulders slumped like he just wanted to crawl under a rock and hide.
    This team is still not mentally strong enough to compete week to week with the top sides, we may make the 8 this year but unless something majorly changes with desire and attitude we won't be a threat to the likes of Souths, The Roosters and Storm.
