    Why do you refer to the nines as being an inferior product? It's a great spectacle

    The wait is part of what makes it great. That's why I've gone off cricket, it's always on and the magic has dissipated as a result.

    This ODI series had been super even

    India could've won all 3 games

    Best series in living memory

    Can't believe how hyped I am for this season!!

    Half way through last yr we had lost our international halves, half our backline was reportedly retiring and our forwards wouldn't hold there own in reserve grade.

    6 months later and we have DCE for life, those backs played some of the best footy of there careers in the back half of '15. We have signed 5 internationals (sneaky cap for John) to go along with 2 future Aus reps in the Turbos. To go along with 2 of the most promising young hookers in the game (Hodges isn't 1 but competition won't hurt). Only ?? would be our 2nd row, hopefully Burher gets through unscathed, T-Red becomes a damaging hole runner and Mateo reduces his errors.

    That keen I'm even heading down from the hunter to watch The Mighty Manly Sea Eagles take on Ipswich.

    The anticipation of this coming season is higher than for many of the past years.

    It feels like a manly reboot.

    Watching classic off season games - my favourite was not the 2008 or 2011 recently won Seaeagles titles but another game.
    To see Parramatta dominate a season & LOSE to Newcastle in the decider as HOT favourites....now thats entertainment !!

    This is exactly what I have been saying for years - I couldn't agree more. I used to love cricket until it became an all year round sport with 10 thousand different variations and no chance to miss it. The fact that we go without league for so long makes us desire it more and love it year after year - absence makes the heart grow fonder.

    The only thing I want coming out of the 9's is no injuries.

    Why do we want our 1st graders playing even MORE footy than the ridiculous high amounts they're playing now. Ludicrous.

    I generally prefer the warmer months but the rugby league makes winter worth it.
    Unlike most here, I enjoy the A-League (Go Sydney) and soccer has made great progress.
    If all I had was cricket it'd be way worse. A passing interest but I'd never call myself a fan.
    Tennis....loved playing it, but I can't watch for long.

    So bring it on. By the way, I wasn't bagging the 9's, but it's a bit of a circus type atmosphere. Nice once in a while, but not like the real thing.
