We will win some close games through solid defence defending a small lead - our right hand side defence will be attacked and hold firm.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

The Canberra Times writes an article on our English imports using a Beatles metaphor, most likely with the headline "Raiders Fab Four spearhead new British Invasion".

Channel 9 commentators:

. correctly pronounce the names of Raiders players,
. don’t confuse current players with guys from 20 years ago and
. don’t wonder why we aren’t utilising a certain player in the top 17 (despite that player having left the club in the off season).

Nah impossible.

John Bateman is a stud, I don't see it as a gutsy call.

We have the pieces, I'm of the opinion our coaching have absolutely let this side down with inept decisions.

To further Captain Punish's post

The coach, playing group and fans will collectively agree it's time to install a new culture of accountability at all levels of the club, to stop harping on about tight, 50/50 refereeing decisions and their impact on our results.
The Raiders, head to toe, begin to fully embrace a NO EXCUSES culture in which the fans, the coaches and players all hold themselves accountable for their own errors and faults and seek to address them.

As a result the coach is not quoted speaking directly about a specific (perceived or otherwise) officiating error. He is not fined all year. The coach and captains dismissed attempts to goad them into these debates by choosing to simply focus on their own issues, the players react accordingly, not a single member of the playing group is penalised in 2019 for dissent.

The fans react accordingly and adopt this mentality, they slowly ween themselves off the victim-mentality.

All prosper as a result. A new reality emerges from the ashes of 2018. Hope returns. Vibrant but tough football. Led from the front by an English quartet which has powerhouses scrambling to find the next John Bateman, Josh Hodgson, Elliott Whitehead and Ryan Sutton. Fans are delirious. National reporters wonder aloud "who are these Raiders?", whilst local beat writers smirk and file copy which could be surmised succinctly as "we tried to tell you, this is not the Raiders you used to know".

The Raiders storm into the finals, a top 4 spot and a home field advantage. Despite this, concerns remain, is this team really built for a run? Or are they just a flat track bully?

The ever present Melbourne Storm await them in a 2v3 contest. The "first real test" says noted goober Phillip Ronald Gould.

The Raiders come out of the gates with some nerves, they struggle through a tough first half and go into the break down 4. But a reinvigorated Ricky Stuart delivers a message to his troops - "Enough of this mess. It's time to play Raiders football", the Raiders come out in the second half and carve out a win, an unlikely hero - Luke Bateman, they earn the week off but the declining play of the storm is the national story. Is the dynasty over?

Awaiting them in the GF qualifier is the Penrith Panthers, a team choc full with talent. Struggles early in the season are long forgotten after an irresistible run to get them here. They're on a 10 game winning streak. They come into the game confident. They are widely tipped as the favourites to emerge as victors.

The Raiders beat them like a drum, from start to finish. They're never in the game. The narrative emerging from the game is that the Panthers simply didn't show up and whilst this has been a stunning run from the Raiders, they've running into a buzz-saw. The roosters await, looking to establish a dynasty of their own. The Raiders are installed as $3.45 outsiders to win the game. The result is a fait accompli. The celebrations are already underway.

Stunner.

32-18... Raiders win. Josh Hodgson Clive Churchill Medalist.
Parade down Northbourne. Beautiful,wild carnage ensues. The GH rejoices. We were all wrong, we were all right. No one cares. This is only the beginning. Our children revel in the spoils to come.
