Well after that result I wouldn’t mind if the Raiders lost this weekend. I like an under dog and it gives the Tigers a shot at making the 8. Go Tigers

How’s that trolling? Just mention now Brisbane has lost, if Tiger’s win they will be separated by 2 points.

Post is related to last nights game and I’m not trying to trigger an emotional response just mentioning that Tigers could now make the top 8 and I’m on board. Be great to have a Fairy tale exit for Benji and Farrah.

That’s a bit rough. It’s not like he’s cheering against the Raiders. Surely it’s ok to find some sort of fun in this train wreck of a season?

Plus death-riding the Broncos is the second best way to support the Raiders generally

You’re right. I should not tell anyone how to fan, but I can’t really understand Raiders fans hoping the opposition win.

I had money riding on us winning the spoon all season.

Yet I'm a paid member and have been for decades. We can love the club but hate the current circumstances. I hate people telling me how to behave. I want success. As a professional football club, the club should want success. But I won't sit back and "Raiders4Life" or "Bleed Green" like all the other sheep and not speak my mind when all I see is a club that wants to excel in Real Estate and jobs for the boys.

It's a joke. I want accountability or success. And this current team and coach just want a free ride.

I know it shouldn't rattle me after seeing the same thing for years now. But I haven't seen much in the media this morning on the Roberts try last night. Sure it didn't cost the Cows the game, thankfully, but I don't understand how anybody can see that play and several replays of it and still come to the conclusion that there is not enough evidence to overturn the on field decision. The decision was flat out wrong - there is no 50/50 with it at all.

There really needs to be an investigation :rant

That decision plus the obstruction try being given were a joke.

Warriors beat Knights fairly convincingly.

Should be an excellent game, Souths v Easts.

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.

Dragons finally start to build some momentum and get a roll on, Ben Hunt decides to kick the ball on 3rd tackle which has set off very bad chain of events for the Dragons.

The wheels could be off at the Dragons I guess...

Parramatta Eels 40 defeated St George Illawarra Dragons 4

Widdop off with a dislocated shoulder.

I hate the Dragons... you know... I guess I hate all the other teams. So that's good.

What's that mean for the Raiders?

We are slightly less of an outside chance of the spoon, but it's still a tiny chance.

As they play each other the best one out of Parra and Cowboys can achieve is 8 wins and they will need to make up 100 pts F/A. Plus Canterbury would need to win 2/3 against top 8 and make up 100pts. Plus everyone else below us winning 1 and making up a lot of points and us winning none.

GE the wheels fell off the Dragons mid year when Hunt first got injured. After that time they had a couple of lucky wins when they didn't deserve it, including against us. The other thing that hasn't helped them is the return to the wrestle. Early in the year they had great momentum with Widdop and Hunt really quick around the ruck and getting them on a roll - plenty of bodies in motion through the forwards.
I don't know they'll win another game.

The refereeing interpretations... I agree. There's a massive problem. The NRL changes opinion mid season and suddenly some teams are winning and others are losing. This is the accountability of the NRL to fix.
