That useless, premiership-less clown Pearce made his bold prediction tonight that the GF would be Storm vs Eels - "the two best sides in the first half of the season". Seems he's still smarting from that beautiful day in 1990 when we bundled the Toigers out of the finals and consigned them to 15 years of mediocrity. As I see it, we can lose the next three games and still be in second place. We are virtually assured a top 4 spot and home semi final. Every team experiences a dip in form at some point in the season. I'm happy to fly under the radar and see the players hit their straps in late August with a Top 2 spot still there for the taking.
