I've been a Souths fan since I was little kid so in the last decade or so, every win is special," said Crowe. Asked on how good it felt to beat the Roosters following his inflammatory remark last week that he wished the club finished with the wooden spoon, Crowe replied: "After 13 consecutive losses (to the Roosters), it couldn't be better." The star of Cinderella Man even produced a letter for journalists responding to a challenge from an anonymous punter to a $250,000 bet that Souths would not beat the Roosters tonight. "My reply to your anonymous caller? Whoever he is, he must be an idiot and a sad idiot at that," the letter stated. "Did the cheque arrive in a paper bag? When will these Roosters blokes learn that it's not about money? It's about heart and spirit."
