    Someone has to start this so may as well be me, and with 3 1/2 hours to kick of we should get a few comments before 7.00pm.

    Will be a very tough game and very very hard to win BUT as results for the rest of the weekend have shown anything is possible.

    I'm game if you are game

    Just about to head off so that we can beat some of the traffic and give the kids a feed before the game.

    Mixed feelings about the result but will go for a Manly win!!

    3 weeks from the finals the Saints are sure to start to fold. I can't say we will win for sure but I suspect it will be a close game if we lose. Oh and a thumping by Manly would certainly show all those dragons fans that old habits die hard.

    I think all here will go for a Manly victory, but that is a pipe dream. Enjoy the game mate....but you'll be bitterly disappointed. We just lack the cattle, we are **** on Monday nights, we have players carrying injury into the game, we have rookie 1/2's, it's at Kogorah, against a full strength Dragons, who really, have a team well over the salary cap with Gasnier coming in.

    Tonight?? No sir. I'm a realist. Care to put a $10- scratchy on it?

    No not really and I don't bet on football games,  but you have to at least agree that anything can happen, would you have bet on the Sharks beating the Roosters??

    You are quite possibly right regarding tonights result, but I am always the optimist, rather than the pessimist.

    I love the way pessimists call themselves realists.

    Ryan is still a realist about how Melbourne would dominate us all over the park for 80mins as well ;)

    I have tipped the Dragons and haven't changed my mind at all. Having said that, I tipped Melbourne earlier on in the year and come away smiling that night

    I think we will lose 1 of our games this week

    Hopefully KE you'll be in for a nice surprise.

    I have to agree its a VERY tough ask, and to be honest most tipsters , would rate us no chance BUT I say again who gave the Sharks a chance of beating the Roosters??

    Football is a funny funny game and can throw strange curve balls at times, hopefull this is one of them

    To be honest i tipped the gummies - that was too short a turn around for them (friday night at all)

    I do not think we will get up tonight but i would be happy with a competitive performance

    We won't win the penalty count tonight, in fact I don't think we have ever won a penalty count with Hayne as the referee. Add Chechin and home ground advantage and that's that.

    However, we do seem to have a pretty good record of winning with Hayne as the referee despite the penalty count. I'm sending all the positive energy I can, and keeping my fingers crossed.

    I've got a feeling the boys will put up a great show,but the pink po**ters will give us an absolute hammering.Nearly every game lately is ruined by these attention seekers with a whistle...

    The bookies rate us as a decent chance, we looked too short for me at around $2.70. The Dragons tend to stifle teams rather than pile on the points so we should be in it for a long time. Just need a brace from T Rex and we'll be sweet.

    Not confident, but am wearing the Pepsi jersey in the hope of channelling some of the '96 mojo. I can handle a loss as long as we don't get pumped and lose our good F/A which might come in handy come round 26.
