Johnson looks injured. Barely taking on the line. There's no creativity there anywhere, with Metcalf out. I said before we played them that AFB isn't playing as well as last year and I'm sticking by that comment. He was unstoppable last year. Sure, he's still making plenty of metres but not playing lights out like he did last year.

When did they look like premiership contenders, they literally not beaten a good side all year.

I’m also not convinced by Cronulla. They’ve had an incredibly soft draw.

They lost narrowly to Melbourne and Cronulla, and then looked very clinical against us, Newcastle and Souths before drawing with Manly. There was a lot of talk about them at that stage, but I take your point that their three wins have been against second tier opposition.

Average side tbh. I know Egan was being talked up after throwing a no look pass against a depleted Souths side, but he was dreadful yesterday.

TMM is about as average as they come and their outside backs are slow. No punch on the bench either.

They’ve got the Roosters celebrating JWH 300th into Penrith. They’ll hit a six game losing streak.

Hopefully it breaks their spirit.
I'm not one of those people to jump on their allegedly good feel stories . I'm happy to see them stink it up.

Was happy to get around them during covid but now the good will has run out. **** em

Plus I absolutely hate the "Wahs'thing.

We had a poster which called us the Rads.

Makes no sense.
The spiral of silence refers to the idea that when people fail to speak, the price of speaking rises. As the price to speak rises, still fewer speak out, which further causes the price to rise, so that fewer people yet will speak out, until a whole culture or nation is silenced. This is what happened in Germany.

If you do not speak, you are not being neutral, but are contributing to the success of the thing you refuse to name and condemn.

I’ve always wondered if it was linked to this or is this giving them too much credit;

“In traditional Māori culture, family is known as a whānau”

There's two theories from what I can find

Peter Ropati can't speak so he called them the Wahriors and it stemmed from that
They're a bunch of sooks so the got labelled the wah wahs and it came from that

More likely the prior tbh

Full credit to the wahs on team list Tuesday, whenever that is.
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.
