    <p>AS if winning five straight series isn't enough, Queensland have now arrogantly denied former NSW Origin greats the right to be called FOGS.</p>

    Knowing the split in the Cane Toad's camp they will probably start another Queensland group soon - the BOGS (Black Origin Greats)

    TBH I don't blame them. They do a lot of work for Queensland Origin, everyone knows the FOGS as QLD so why keep it in NSW we we can start our own independent banner and make it better.

    I agree Dan. There is no doubt that FOGS is directly linked to Queensland and the work they do collectively. I have never liked the word 'brand' relating to things like this but in this instance it is appropriate - having Blues associated with this Cane Toad organisation will definitely lower the value of their brand (or maybe increase it :) ).

    The dotted line between NSW and Qld is there for a reason, someone grab a saw...

    I heard/read that the NSW players were calling their FOGS, Fat Old Guys.

    Now it might be a joke , but it may also display the difference in the respect the two sides have for their history.
