Thankyou Greg I appreciate it, 2018 is probably going to be one of the hardest seasons to predict, and all we can do is look at the past facts. For all I know the Raiders could finish in the top four, however this is just my view of it. In regard to your prediction, whoever the 5/8 is, I reckon Manly will improve on last year no doubt.

To be honest Kris, I hope they do well. An exciting team with plenty of potential, hopefully they prove me wrong. As a team I’d rather be doubted than have expectation like my team, the Roosters. Merry Christmas. 🙂

Hi Ron

I provided evidence to my forecast. You have just spoken out of offence because your team has been disregarded. I have nothing against the Raiders as I actually quite like them and would prefer them to do well. As for you, I have no doubt you are completely stubborn to any criticism as you absolutely suck. I don’t have a problem with you disagreeing with me but having a stab at me as a writer I do. Enjoy rejecting any form of truth my friend.

Kind Regards,

Charlie 🙂

Also forgot to mention the fact they will be without one of their best in Josh Hodgson for a large part of the season.

Looking back on the 2017 I think you are right in saying it was never really close. Everyone bags the Roosters for trying to buy a premiership and what not but at least 2018 is looking a lot more open thanks to heavy player movement. You’d have to be a genius to know what the top eight will look like next year.

2017 Rugby League year in review

Nine World of Sports published they were under pressure, and have already let go of Kurt Baptise to relieve some pressure. They should bring in some of the Roosters accountants because obviously something isn’t working..

The Roosters management are just smart with attracting crowds. People in Adelaide or the Central Coast are not likely to be die-hard fans of a certain club and so taking games there, the supporter base can be increased. It also helps the crowd statistics and makes the club look more popular than it currently is. As for relocating, the Roosters are the longest standing club and as a fan, I’d be seriously disappointed with this sort of move. The NRL should focus less on stadium advancements and more on the possible expansion for another team to join the competition.

Why are people chicken to support the Roosters?
