    2014: Roosters, Souths, Manly all finish in the top 4.
    2016 Rnd 15: Roosters, Souths, Manly all in the bottom 4.
    Pretty crazy isn't it

    Well souths belong in the bottom 4, so they're taking their rightful place. @;)

    It's proof that injuries and off field incidents do affect teams heavily. I reckon all these 3 need a new coach. Madge is a ......, Robinson is ...... Sook and Barrett couldn't coach to ...... save himself.

    It's the magnificent salary cap working beautifully as it's designed to do!

    Good point about injuries kid. You take Thurston, Morgan, Talmalolo, Scott, O'Neill, Lowe, Cooper and Tamou (or 3 or more of any combination) out of the Cowboys and suddenly they aren't a top 8 side. Same with Brisbane, take Hunt, Milford, Parker, Oates, Roberts, Boyd and Thaiday out of that team and have them have to play their reserves and even the Supercoach would be struggling.

    Fun Fact - Souffs coach Michael Maguire played fullback for the Adelaide Rams in their very first competition match in the SL against the Cowboys at the Stockland Stadium (as it was then) in Townsville on 1 March 1997. NQ won 24-16.

    Prior to the Roosters-Warriors game being shown on Sunday , Gus did a studio interview with Robinson, blaming injury, retirement & suspension for their poor season.
    No interview for Barrett, though.

    Maguire and Robinson have been feted as coach of the year and won comps, suddenly they can't coach. Neil Henry's coaching ability was derided by many for failing to get the cows over the line and suddenly he is a candidate for coach of the year.
    Point being, a losing team is not proof that the coach can't coach.

    It's been true since the game started - injuries determine a good season from a bad one. You just can't expect to have key players out for extended periods and expect to win many games.

    Well this thread will die pretty quickly - not enough death riding of players and coaching staff, far too much support and facts to keep the sheep happy.

    Old saying, originally referable to business but maybe equally apt here, if you're pleased with something you might tell someone, if you're disappointed with something you'll probably tell 10 people.
    Dan might be bribing the team to run dead in order to boost site traffic

    Funny how the Donkeys are never down the bottom, in fact since they joined in 88 no where near it!!
