    Manly must stop this possibility, and we may be the only team capable.

    News Ltd and NRL will be over the moon if Manly stall as it will ensure both children make the GF.

    It will free-up the long weekend for me if it happens because I shudder at the thought of such an ugly match.

    Maybe a moderator should delete this thread.

    I reckon it will be Manly v Broncos, they are looking good with Hodges back.

    Jeez I'd hate to lose to the storm in a GF.
    Rather not vet there. Nothing better thanbeating them on one though.

    Looking at the finals system, assuming Melb get minor premiership with us and Bris in 2nd/3rd (either way round) then likely us and Bris to playoff for a GF spot in week 3 of the finals.

    I'd be cheering for the Broncos in that GF.

    I have done the ladder predictor 4 times today. and every single time ( with us finishing 2nd or 3rd) we play the Bronco's in the Grand Final Qualifier the week before.

    SO

    That could very mean either a Storm - Manly or Storm-Bronco's GF

    I'm just not going to think about the possibility. That path leads to madness.

    The instant those 2 teams become the last 2 in this year's comp it is over and forgotten for me, I'd be focusing on the Rugby World Cup and other sports until a few weeks prior to NRL Season 2012.

    Whilst it's entirely possible, Geez I hope it doesn't happen. Lots.

    Storm vs. Bronco's probably isn't even watch-worthy, and I'd watch 99.99% of the match-ups, because I love the game itself. Better off having it in QLD, where somebody may give a damn.

    And yeah, I hope Manly push one of those teams out, but it's not about Manly trying to make sure they are in the GF, it's more about other teams trying to stop us getting there.

    We seem to have that steel mentality Des appears to inspire into his players.

    I went to Storm Broncos GF in 2006 and it was the worst game scenario ever. Hated every minute of it and only took the tickets as they were given free.

    If that scenario eventuates there are 12 GF tickets for sale, but who on earth would buy them???

    I'd prefer another NSW based team. I know that's harsh, but it's what I want. Therefore, that would include one of Tigers, Dragons, Knights or Rabbits.

    This could possible happen as well - Storm out in straight sets i.e St George Illawarra in 2009
