    Not of course saying that they will but....

    If an injury-depleted Manly lose to Broncs and Cronulla can manage a win against Melbourne, and then depending upon Sharks V Cow pokers game at round 26...

    Would storm, dogs, souths and even the NRL like to let Manly slip out of the top 4?

    Put it this way if they can get Manly out of the top 4 wouldn't they take the option to do so?

    If you were Bellyache or the NRL would you?

    Will the next two rounds might see some big upsets?

    Okay where is my tin hat?

    Complete rubbish. No team will throw a game at any time of the year.

    The paranoia on the Forum is breathtaking sometimes.

    No… but there was a Bulldog player allegedly involved in trying to manipulate a match in order to fix betting options not too long ago …

    He's currently serving a jail sentence (by way of Intensive Correction Order) for lying to the NSW Crime Commission about the betting scandal.

    Stranger things have happened before. About 2002 the dogs played really bad against the cows first week of the finals to knock someone out. It was a "surprise" result

    The Melbourne Demons AFL club are being investigated at the moment for tanking to get good draft picks so it's not unheard of. I can't imagine the Storm throwing a game though.

    The Demons have been tanking for the last five or so years. They are a disgrace of a football club. I hope that karma bites them on the arse and they never play finals football for a long time. Everyone in the AFL know that it is going on as well...
