    Manly is the only team to win two premierships this century!

    Don't believe Melbourne - they've won none, not two.
    Don't believe Brisbane - they've won one, not two.

    Despite popular misconception, the 21st century began on January 1, 2001, and ends on December 31, 2100. e.g.:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/21st_century

    The logic is simple. There was never a year zero. The first century A.D. began on 1 January 0001A.D.. [This was one day after the last day in 0001B.C.]. So naturally, exactly 100 years later, the second century began on 1 January 0101 A.D., etc

    So Brisbane's 2000 premiership was last century. And their only premiership this century is in 2006!

    I share your logic.

    2000 was the last year of the 1990s.

    So was 1990 in the 80's or 90's? If 2000 was in the 90's does that make 1990 in the 80's or did the 90's go for eleven years?

    We are also the most successful team since the introduction of Limited Tackle footy in 1967 with 8 premierships. I think the closest to us are Canterbury and the Broncos with 6 (if you count the Broncos winning Super League).

    1990 was not in the 1990's. This is disturbing news indeed. I'm also suspicious of the theory there was no year zero. You guys are playing some cruel pranks here methinks.

    Based on premierships you are 100% correct. I did some sums last night ( was thinking of starting a similar thread). Based on the regular season I unfortunately calculated us as 5th..... The early years (northern eagles) hurt us badly in the rankings. My system was crude but still took 45 minutes

    I dropped my wife at Sydney airport and she caught a plane to Melbourne while I drove there. I aged less than her and not just because of my superb driving skills. Time actually slowed down for me compared to her. Scientific fact.

    Just because things sometimes seem to make no sense, doesn't make them any less true.

    The 21st century DID start on 1 January 2001, which was after Brisbane won the 2000 grand final. Fact.

    Despite the massive celebrations, 1 January 2000 was the start of the noughties (and not part of the 1990's), but not the start of a new century. Educating the masses is a task no politician wanted to confront.

    Time slowed down for you because you were missing her? Time flew for her because she was having fun?? :)

    There's a semantic issue, namely - while the "1990s" comprises the years 1990 to 1999, the "199th decade" spans 1991 to 2000.

    Either way Manly is by far the best club!

    1901 was the first year of the 20th century and so on and so forth. It's always been thus.
