Nth Qlder but Bronco to the bone.

Warney is a commentary cliche. He has made a career bagging refs but it’s every sport, everywhere. It’s far easier to blame the ref than admit fault. Imgane how smart you become when you can slow down and analyse every ball? I think, unless you have the assistance of video to prove your case, suck it up and move on. The ref gets it right 97% of the time.

That’s the best come back to that latte sledge! 👍

Firehawks, firebirds, Lightening, Storm… I don’t see the issue! 😂

I think so too. Even encouraging the Jets and Firehawks to talk merger was a fair indication of where they stood.

How are you KK? Got the computer issue sorted?

Hi Monorchid,
I feel I wasn’t quite clear. Clinton Schifcofske went on to have a great career. My reference was when he originally came across to league as a junior. My poor attempt at self-deprecating humour.

I, too, caught the backend of the Crushers Leagues Club when I came to Brisbane. You are right, even polite to say it was uninspring. It was close to home so I thought I could catch the non Ch9 footy games there but I couldn’t even get it on the TV. No wonder people didn’t show up. It wasn’t long after that it went through multiple hands and it’s now a block of units.

South Queensland Crushers best team ever

You might be pleasantly surprised. I read that they may move away from the tradional Red & White. It may go toward a largely grey, red and another colour. Don’t quote me though.

It’s an interesting but horrible read when it’s laid out like that. No doubt the Roosters will come back to the pack because that type of experience is invaluable to a squad no matter how much potential is comng through. Still, when you can line up with JWH, TKO, Crichton, Manu and Tede they will go a long way to carrying any team. Enough has been said about Walker but I like Egan Butcher. He’s not real big but he’s got a habit of breaking the first tackle – going straight up the middle.

You don’t see Mitchell as a significant loss in 2020? 😁

Probably a bit of both. Easts were changng their name completely to Brisbane Firewhawks. Imagine the kerfuffle if they got they gig? However, I noticed they dropped the ‘Brisbane’ on their marketing as well. Not sure if that was official or not.

I’m not much of a fan of her singing either but that’s not really her strong point. 😛

Would you care if it was 1980’s Madonna!

It’s not only a good idea it’s an important one. Pre covid the NRL were taking some games to the regions but not with any regularity. Everywhere they take the game, from Dubbo to Rocky, the crowds have shown up. With a bit more consistency say 2-3 a year the interest and money that it can generate for the local comp they can build better stands and get +7k-8k instead of 5k at the grounds. It’s a huge financial boost and every hotel, pub and cafe is full that weekend as well. PNG would go nuts (not really untapped though).

What is GGTSS?

The NRL is expanding. Is there a place for the Bears?

I guess the subtleties of our banter is lost on some.

Not quite the same thing. What’s the fallback position, include the name or they don’t start? Te Dolphns will forever be linked to Redcliffe in every way. Does it really matter?

The upside for you is people expect random Souths guy to be everywhere. I’m already getting sidways looks in my Broncos kit. 😂

No boat yet. My mate has a decent one but he won’t go out on weekends for the traffic on the water.

South to north of the penninsula. Bribie – meh. Decent RSL and Red beach for the dog is ok. I know the Sunny Coast very well. Lived in Cotton tree, worked in Noosa.

Where is it reported he’s going to miss any games? I haven’t read it. This is as of Sunday. https://www.nrl.com/news/2021/01/23/casualty-ward-all-the-latest-nrl-injury-news2/

Who should make the Australasian Super League team of the year?

No, I only moved there 8 wks ago. I’m slowly working my way south to north. The Pavilion is a cracker location. MB Boat Club looks like it will get a fair run come summer time.

Only you would wish injury to the prodigal son because Souths management stuffed it up. He’ll be giving to Souths right Ilias come round one!

That call happen every weekend in park footy. Th ref was so far away he made a ‘by rights’ decision. Are we hunting the world for #refsfault articles now?

All the black Rovers from the north shore are parked at AFL games! Yeah right. 😂

Heritage vs Expansion: Full time for the Bears or one final chance?

Fonda Metassa! There’s a name I haven’t heard in a while. Great reference.

I was quite impressed with Drinkwater. He looks like he could drop a few kg but I thought he was controlled and an accurate kicking game, enough to make an impression on the NRL team. How much you put down to Jimmy elevating him I don’t know.

Nothing wrong with having Kasiano coming off the bench. NAS does it for Bellamy where he would start in any other team.
