If you ask any Panther supporter today they will give you a big resounding YES. Dubbed the "pretenders" all year didn't they show some class and determination last night. For those of you unaware one of my two in laws is a Panthers fan, Mick (who lives in Moree) has had the year from hell, at age 35 diagnosed with Colrectal Cancer in September last year. He's just completed, 3 months of Radiation / Chemo, followed by a few weeks off, then 3 1/2 weeks in hospital, 7 days of which he was in intensive care for the biggest operation you could think of and then all followed up by 6 months of more chemo. This concluded just in time for me to shout him a trip to Brookvale for the last home game where if not for a miracle he would have seen his side beat mine. Last night it was his turn for a miracle, and his Panthers delivered in spades. Mick was up for the weekend and sitting next to me last night watching the game, I was doing a fair bit of cheering for his team and was so pleased for the result and he said, "that was our turn for a miracle". They left to head back to Moree this morning and as he shook my hand and said farewell he said, " We've had our miracle now its your turn to get another one". Lets hope he's right!!
