    a few people know this story but happy to share...

    I was planning my wedding in early 2000 and we both agreed that we wanted a spring wedding in 2001, so I sneakily picked the date which was a week after GF day and she wanted the week before which was actually GF day, I fought tooth and nail to get what i wanted unbeknownst to her the real reason why i chose the 6th of october instead of November 30, it wasnt until closer to the big day when she finally realized why I chose the date...

    suffice to say we're no longer together but proud at the one and only time I won an arguement ;-)

    You could set up a couple of those $29 folding tables you get from Bunnings and have the wedding in your garage on a Tuesday.

    You's save a heap on grog, cos no merkin would come.

    But if you put the tele out there and had the GF showing then you'd get a few along. Theyd'd probably bring a 6pack each as well.

    I don't argue anymore, in fact I have come to the conclusion there is only two words that make her happy

    "yes dear"


    All you blokes can thank me when we rejoice an eels lap of honour on Grand final day..

    There are only a couple of things that my wife doesn't argue with me over as she knows it's non negotiable and the Eels are one of those non negotiables.

    I balance that by letting her win every other argument outside of them.

    Works well for me.

    Should try and put Semi on the other side or something cause Jennings don't like passing. I like that backline though.

    See I thought that as well until Pou posted Jennings's try assist stats. None too shabby.

    Unless Pou made them up. ;-)

    Wicks still not fit either?

    I thought we would have named more interchanges than that so that players can be rested so as not to risk them late in the game.
