Re: 2019 Finals Week 1 V Storm: Game Day

That ain't it, chief. Annesley was 100% spot on, Whitehead should have been binned, and if not him, definitely Croker. And Vunivalu wasnt out. Those were huge plays in the game. As were the storm blowing it on tackle 1 with an obstruction, as was Addo Carr spilling his beans, as was Simo's positioni...

Re: 2019 Preliminary Final: Teams and Previews

This isn't your big brother's Raiders team This team is built differently. It's built on resilience, it's built on defensive back bone and it's built on the desire to play for each other and "earn" it. We may not win the comp, and it's not the first team i've seen i think was capable of winning a co...

Re: NFL Thread

Yep, i agree, but it doesnt matter much now.
The cowboys finally have a real offence this year, so dropping games like this where we catch a football and win, could really hurt. Curious to see what Jerreh Jones does with Moore/Garrett if this is a really good season for Dallas

They changed the rule to protect QB's who cant slide from tearing their knees up, basically a QB running now, as soon as he dives, be it a slide or head first, he's being deemed as giving himself up and ball goes to where his knee/elbow land there after....

Re: 2019 Finals Week 1 V Storm: Game Day

They both should have gone in a vacuum. Now obviously if whitey goes we probably don’t get Croker sent too

But they were both professional fouls and worthy of a sin bin imo

That said, they weren’t, and despite those calls the storm had plenty of chances to close out the game and couldn’t get it done

What a game. And what a post match as well! We were going nuts in the stadium for a good hour! Loved it! One thing that stood out and really annoyed me though is our terrible penalty kicks for touch. Why is it Melbourne averaged 30-40m each penalty and we averaged something ridiculous like 15m? And...

If we dont win this home prelim, it wont be because we're a bad home team, it wont be because we sucked and were pretenders all along, it will be because a damn good team out performed us on the day. But as long as we play the footy we know we're capable of, we're going to the grand final.

Eels were dynamite today, especially Moses. They could beat anybody, and with RCG signed for next year, should be strong for some time.
Has RCG discovered the art of time travel? Because nothing ive seen from him in the past 2 years suggest he's going to help their front row rotation.
