    Just decided to check who had the longest running finals run.

    Manly since 2005 (7 seasons)
    Dragons since 2008 (4 seasons)

    Melbourne before last season had a run from 2002 to 2009 of 7 seasons. Just last season taking out their run. But does it really count with all their cap rorts for msot of that period.

    Too good.

    We are riding the crest of a wave,

    but eventually,

    one day,

    We will wipe out.

    There is nothing surer.

    Can't compare differing eras. When the Goons won those 11, there was no salary cap and they just bought the biggest, fattest players and held the ball forever. Ground their way to the top. If we had a team of Rose's who were told to hold onto the ball and go forward, we'd win 100 straight.

    lets make it 8 next year and premiership no.9

    I dont count the storms cheating years, they would have surely lost guys some key players if they had played by the rules (the thing is by cheating, guys like smith, cronk and slater are now loyal players and will never leave, where as in 2007 they may have).

    To think some bloke last yr wacked 100K on the donkeys not to make the eight and it was the first time in 18yrs they didnt make it.

    Yeah dragoons made finals 23yrs straight 1951-73, but it was a different era.

    Only current runs matter anyway.
    Broncos will be very lucky to play finals next season.
    Dragons could miss also.
    We are the best!

    Manly made the finals every season between 1968 - 78 (11 seasons), so that would have to be our longest finals run so far.

    In the nrl era manly (2) and Brisbane (3) are the only sides to legitimately win multiple premierships
