    For a start I should say I am a Blues supporter through and through!!

    I am sitting at work today with my Blues jumper on and will be leaving shortly for the mayhem that is Caxton Street where (so they predict) some 20,000 will converge around 4 or 5 pm for the passing of the Queensland Bus(pft who cares!!!)

    There's no doubting these bloody Queenslanders are passionate!!

    BUT

    Should the game in fact be happening????

    I say a big ........NOOOOOOOOOOOO

    In my opinion it should be like the one day cricket used to be, a 3 game final series with game 3 only played if neccesary!!

    This is uneccesary and I pray to god none of our players are hurt long term as a result.

    SOO in 2010 should be "best of 3" with the third game sold ONLY if needed!!!

    Any thoughts on this guys???

    I totally agree Mark. In my opinion there is too much of a risk to the players health for a game that means nothing except maybe for a little pride to NSW that the series was not a 3 game clean sweep if they happen to win the game tonight.

    I actually like the concept of SOO and the three matches except for one thing. I know this won't be a popular decision but one of two things need to happen during SOO.

    1. All NRL matches during SOO cease and only commence outside of SOO commitments. - unlikely to be accepted by NRL, clubs and players as it extends the season.

    And or

    2. Teams with 2 or more SOO players have the bye – unlikely to be accepted by the television networks.


    Anyway that’s my 2 cents worth.

    Go the Blues
