    I knew Neddy was Admin.... I thought we just didnt admit that openly:)

    Man, i would have loved to have been there. Poor crowd but, only 13K. They would have got more than that at Fortress Brookvale.

    No secrets here Snooks. Openly declared right in the beginning. :)

    I just try and differentiate depending upon whether it is a personal post or opinion - or whether it is a DNT opinion. Seems to work well so far.

    But having spoken to Admin a moment ago, he also thinks that you should perhaps be sin-binned or banned for some of your more outrageous statements on this forum - particularly in relation to footy. ;):D

    Good games over the weekend saw the St George / Tigers game other night, hate the tigers but good game...

    Good scores over last night shows these teams probably should not have been in the finals...

    Go the warriors! What a fantastic 78th minute try, one of the best I've seen in a long, long time. This now gives me a chance to bag out the tigers to my dad's mate who LOVES them.

    In other news, UP THE MIGHTY DRAGONS - Playing Bronco's tomorrow night, will need all the luck they can get.

    Mate that 78th minute try was not a "best in a long time" it was sloppy as!!!

    Don't care to see a NZ team in the final tbh...but storm will annihilate them anyway. Too classy...too clinical. That wing it shit the warriors and tigers play has no chance vs it.

    WOW....thats ll i can say. What a match the ST George vs Broncos match was. High paced and high skilled and couldnt be faulted....amazing.

    Now i LOVE the Manly Sea Eagles but i must admit im a bit nervous. Im banking on a couple of small things:

    • Lockeyer being injured and missing the match (unlikely)
    • Broncos "played the Grand Final" last night and have nothing left
    • Its a Sydney based game and not Suncorp with 49k Cockroaches cheering them on
    • The (unbiased) fact that we are the better team lol
    *kneels and prays* lol

    That Broncos v Dragons match was the best of the season in my opinion. Amazing football. At the end of the day Broncos probably did deserve to win. I must say, I'm very dirty with Justin Hodges and that tackle on the surrendered Moris.

    Ive never liked Hodges and always thought of him to be a dirty player......what we saw last night simply confirmed that. He hit what was obviously a very injured player and simply didnt care......the guy was clearly down and out anyway.

    Personally, i would like to see something like that become a chargeable offence and the offensder recieve an appropriate suspension.

    Like i said, the guys a scumbag:(

    He should have been sent off. OK, the rules probably allow him, but time was off and he surrendered. Be more tough refs.

    Your prayers worked Snooks. :(

    But Lockyer did miss the match, and that was a shame. Would have been a great contest had he been playing.

    So all I can say is congratulations - and well played Manly. Don't think you'll beat the Storm though.

    How's that for a turn up! Warriors knocking over the Storm. If I'd bet, I would have lost money on that. It will be a good match next week.
    Just to stir Snooks up - I'm going for the Warriors. :p (I see that Williams and Matai are ok to play so that's a relief for you).

    Other than that, miserable sporting weekend for me. First the Broncos - then yesterday the West Coast Eagles. I wish we had an avatar
    for a grown man crying .......... :mad:

    My money is on:

    Manly to win NRL final

    Collingwood (spew) to win AFL final

    Snooks to win Pocket Billiards Title :D

    Handbaggers for me. Question is, who will win the Norm Smith? I've successfully backed the last 5 winners so pressure is on!

    Really? Ok - bet time. Nominate your player here and now. I've got $20 says you'll be incorrect.

    And don't be a wussy and try and get out of it. :D

    It was worth a try - after all you were just telling us what an "expert tipster" you have been for the past 5 years.

    I mean technically I am at a real disadvantage - a mug punter versus someone of your astute tipping ability. :p

    But let me give away my money. Nominate your man by Friday night, and it will be my $50 versus your $20. Can't be fairer than that.

    :)
