    My girlfriend and I were in the local shopping center yesterday when we were approached by a young boy all of about 6 or 7, he was selling raffle tickets for his footy club. He was a very polite young lad and while filling out the ticket we asked him who he supported in the NRL.

    He said he was a Manly fan and we had a little talk about the eagles after which his eyes welled and he said, "but my dad says our season is over because of the bloody storm..."

    Do you think the NRL has any idea just how much value it takes out of its own game with this stupid ****ing circus it wants to run? Nearly broke my heart seeing the little fella so upset that the game he loved so much all year was ruined to sell newspapers.

    Tell the young fella next time you see him to never give up on your dreams and never let anyone else tell you to believe in something different from what you truely believe in.

    We are at as much fault as the Storm for what happened.

    No little bloke should lose hope or be upset by what happened last friday night.

    Storm or Manly, what an over reaction thats ruined the season and a time when lots of little blokes are hanging on with baited breath for the finals.

    If us or melbourne struggle in the finals due to suspensions the NRL has ruined 2011 for itself.

    You couldn't be further from the truth. If it were true he wouldn't have blamed the Storm. It would have been because snake had got on the turps two years ago.

    Meh, he'll be right. Least he's not growing up with the Northern Eagles debacle.
