It’s amazing how boring Milford and James Roberts have become within the Broncos structure. They’ve had their natural football instincts coached out of them.

Milford was better for Broncos in his first year after leaving Raiders when he still retained some vibrancy.

Milford looks like someone who isn't really enjoying their footy at the moment. I think he was moved to the halves much too early, just to accommodate Creeping Death Jr.

He was brilliant for us and in his first season at the Broncos. He seems to have regressed in the last couple of years. Still, he has far too much talent to write off.

That is a disgraceful overlap allowed by the Bulldogs. Disgraceful.

Bulldogs 6... Rhys Martin try on debut...

Broncos 6... Oates try completely unopposed on the wing... converted from the sideline.

The referee isn't even trying to mask the Broncos bias here, this is great stuff.

If anyone wishes to question the existence of unrecognised bias, then just see the call of "no knock on" against Isaako. It is outrageous.

Now the Broncos get a penalty on top of it... and another call against Klemmer for chat... and the Broncos get a penalty goal.

28 to go... PENALTY GOAL BRONCOS...

Broncos 14
Bulldogs 14

Wow Broncos getting some outrageous referee calls in their favour.

Why don’t the Raiders get consistently favourable calls in their favour at our home ground.

Broncos will get one bad call against them and think they are hard done by consistently.
