    Anyone else notice how they seemed to be at pains last night to point out from the podium that this was "St George's first PRemiership in 31 years"?

    Can't have it both ways fellas.

    Earlier this year they proclaimed and celebrated Darren Lockyer as assuming the record for "most first grade games for one club". 

    This is only possible if Beaver's games for the Northern Eagles joint venture aren't inserted into the record books, otherwise his 349 games trumps Lockyer still.

    It still grates me the lack of honour they paid Beaver in his last year.

    Why was Gallop handing out anything other than an apology?

    I can't believe that Gallop is a shoei-in to lead the new non-News Ltd conglomerate that is to run league. Talk about giving an alcholic the keys to the liquor cabinet. He is part of the current problem and should be jettisoned asap.

    The one-eyed Dragons supporter here at work insists all the St George Dragons stats and records have carried over to St George Illawarra. Is this really the case?

    They might as well say that Illawarra Steelers have nothing to do with the merge, They are saying that they are still the StGeorge Dragons..  However they get all their juniours from the Steelers

    If they can have that accolade Beaver should be the longest serving one club player
