    Being a Panther fan/follower/supporter for many a year I just cannot get use to winning so often, I know deep down we will turn into the old panthers that I know and love.

    I had this bet with a Dragons supporter mate. Started at $1, double or nothing each year. It got to $64 before it was cleared. Currently he owes me $8.

    This is the part that's scary though. It feels like we have, or we're about to do so for a very long time. When the best we were hoping for was sneaking into the 8 the expectation of a long term dynasty wasn't something we could have comprehended. Now we've gotten a taste of the forbidden fruit of genuine hope, if the fall comes it will be a pain we (or at least I) have never known.

    We could have done so in 2004 but injuries and suspension meant the bench was pure reserve grade quality.

    The starter's easily put 24 on St George in rapid time in a final but could barely hold on for the win.

    The Dogs just ground us down in the prelim.

    2005 we were just to big and then the team fell apart.

    For me, the journey is far more satisfying than the destination. A GF win is just a cherry on top of a successful season.

    Yeah it really doesn’t make much sense that if you don’t win the one specific game then everything else seems to be forgotten.

    Nah. But I'm like that for every game, only feel confident after about 75 minutes and 20+ in front.

    That Dragons side were renowned for starting badly. They had us on the ropes in the last 20 but seemed to think they could score at any time. In the end a huge defensive effort kept them out.

    We were no match for the Dogs in the prelim though.

    We have won 25 of the last 26 matches, which is insane, but with a MASSIVE disclaimer with respect to the one loss in that run.

    I love this philosophical outlook. I wish I had it in me but I don't.
