I can’t believe we won the Vietnam war and we still can’t watch rugby league on free to air while visiting our conquered lands.

What do you mean we didn’t win, I’ve seen the American war movies. We clearly won.

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.

Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart calls for 'brave' NRL to crackdown on wrestling

Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart has called on the NRL to be brave enough to clean up the game and stamp out illegal wrestling tactics.

"There's got to be someone brave enough to stand up. Not just at the Melbourne Storm, any illegal foul tactic on the ground, I believe there's a responsibility with our people who are in charge of the game to get rid of it.

Canberra Raiders centre Joey Leilua has time to click into gear

It's the perfect tune-up to get the Green Machine's rampant right edge back purring again.

"They've played a little bit of football together. Not a lot," Ricky Stuart said. "But hopefully going into the back end they can find a little bit of combination and cohesion together and it can be a powerful edge if we can get that right."

Canberra Raiders hard man John Bateman reveals hardest part of playing NRL

John Bateman is making hay while the sun shines - relishing every moment while his daughter Millie's down under. Millie and Bateman's mum Bev are visiting the loveable second-rower for three weeks.

"It's good to have them in the house and just here with me. I miss them quite a lot being away from home.

If we can somehow jag 3rd and play the roosters first semi, we can win that game. but we need to keep winning, and they are all good teams in the next few weeks, we need to win them all if possible.

Consolation is a few teams in the hunt play each other in the last few rounds.

So it's not terminal if we lose here

I reckon so as well. Plus, lay on the buses and fill whatever Sydney stadium it is with Raiders fans - it's actually sort of ideal, if we have to play first week away.

I think to guarantee top 4 we need 3/4. We could get there with 2/4 but it would depend on other results. Third is a good shot given out for and against.

A win against the storm while unlikely, opens up the possibility of a second place finish and home final week 1. Its worth winning just for that!

greeneyed wrote:Why Canberra Raiders won’t win the comp if they can’t shake Storm hoodoo

Canberra hasn’t beaten Melbourne in Melbourne in six years. And if they fail to get the chocolates at AAMI Park on Saturday, league legend Phil Gould says there’s fat chance the Raiders will be winning the title in 2019.

“I think they are beating up on out-of-form teams, I really do,” Gould told Channel 9’s 100% Footy following Canberra’s loss to the Roosters last week.

Are you staying in one of the major cities? If so find a sports bar. You might be lucky and they're showing the game on one of the screens.

magoo, there's a website called watchnrl.com where you can watch games live if overseas. It's free to sign up and you can just cancel after two weeks.

I watched two games while over in Africa recently. It was good.

We do not need to win this one to make top 4 imo. We just need to beat Manly next week. We will win at least 1 of our other 2, and that will be enough.

and once in top 4, where ever we finish - we will need one big upset. If we run 4th that is our first finals game. If we run 2nd that is 2nd finals game.
