I wish Origin still had this kind of hatred

    I wish they would allow cheap shots in Origin, it would make the game so much more interesting. I loved the old brawls with a little of football in between.

    Now it's all about skill and no toughness

    I still think anyone who lives in QLD is a dirty dumb bogan. Does that count? ;)

    Those were the good old days of State of Origin. The brawls were a lot of the entertainment. Now the SoO games have become boring. Even the big hits are disappearing too.

    Geyer's elbow was a shocker. Was anything Les Boyd did really worse than that?

    That swinging arm shot by Geyer was one of the cheaper efforts I have seen.

    Just because it was a cheap shot doesn't mean it wasn't enjoyable. That was what Origin was about.

    What about in the first Origin ever when one of the players just belted the other over the head in front of the posts until he let go of the tackled player. Give me that kind of entertainment and cheap shots any day

    Oh and I say we give Trim a run on spot

    Yeah don't get me wrong - it was the highlight. The clumsiness of it was good too.

    A little more latitude is needed to elevate SOO and test matches back to there rightful place.

    My first Origin game was about 82 or 83. Lived in Moree in those days and used to bring bus loads of guys up for the games...we'd drink piss all the way, go to the game, get into fights with Queenslanders, boo the Maroons and Cheer the Blues, get back on our bus and sleep all the way home. We'd leave at 6.00am, get to Brissie about 1.00pm, into the Caxton for 5 hours, off to Lang Park and by the time we got home the next day (around 5.00am) we'd have to sleep for a week to get over it...ah those were the days, fights in the stands, fights on the field, cans being thrown...you really knew you'd been to a footy game!!

    Sadly those days are gone, the PC police now have us drinking light beer, being chucked out if we even look we are agressive and as far as the on field stuff goes....VERY lame.
