    I wonder if that silly old git is aware of the fact that the crowd are only cardboard cut outs ?

    I dont really see any home ground advantage in playing in front of cardboard pics.

    The Broncos have only missed the finals three times in their history, and the lowest they’ve ever finished is 12th. They are a one-team League-mad city, the richest club who have a history of success.

    It’s a pretty big deal. And it’s pretty funny.

    To add to this, the Storm are another team who have never been through a sustained period of shitness. The lowest they’ve ever finished is 10th In 2002. The year before they finished 9th. Those are the only two years they missed the finals.

    Apart from 2010 of course, but that’s a different story.

    The NRL reporters spoke about his "emotion" on their podcast. The conclusion was that Parra were bashing him every time he had the ball and he just lost it. Wears his heart on his sleeve apparently. I can't say I have ever seen a forward cry because he had been targeted. :grimacing:

    How good is it having a forward pack who can bash people.

    Cos they spend millions above the cap that other teams have no ability to do ... their "down" seasons should be mid table, not easy beats

    Wow. More evidence that the Dally M is a joke of an award. Who was the judge in this one?

    To be brutally honest this kind of attitude is pretty shitty.

    The bloke is a twat for carrying on at the crowd and I defs gave it to him for that, but at the same the idea that dudes can't get emotional needs to f**k right off.

    Yeah I agree with that. We don’t know what he’s got going on in his life at the moment. That tackle and subsequent injury could have been the tipping point for him.

    I see that NRL.com does not show who the judges are for the Dally M voting.
    Is this to avoid another Ruan Sims-like embarrassment? I think it’s fair that fans know who is handing out these points.
