    Just wondering, guess u can call it pre season pondering, in recent years how many of the premiers truly deserved or earned their grand finals? Like take for example the last Grand final "won" by the Easts, they played hard but we all saw the refereeing blunders in that game, not to mention their miraculous retaining if all bar one player from the GF team, so that needs no explaining. Or the 2010 St George-Illawarra win off a season tailor made for them. Forget the storm cheats of 07 and 09, but they played hard and earned it in 2011. Now as for us, 2008 needs no explanation. 2011, Warriors played hard and we had to give it our best despite stiff resistance from not just the Warriors but the media and NRL. Anyway of the other grand finals in recent years (say 20 years) were they all deserved?

    If we are looking at premierships such as 2010 when the Drags won with the aid of not having the Storm, then you could say the same about the Roosters in 2002 when the Dogs lost all their points and gave the Roosters a big push to the premiership.

    I'll be the first to say that last year the Roosters did not deserve the win. Duh! But then again none of us knew the refs could be so ****house in the games pinnacle. Take a bow Hayne you knobhead

    Manly technically did in 2007/2008 :D

    No one else has their name on the 2007 NRL Premiership!
    The Scum scored a big fat zero for both games :p

    Thanks, SER8.
    Now if only we can work out a plan to ship all those lousy cheating bunny supporters back down to Redfern instead of them camping on the Northern Beaches. ;)
