    All that proves is that there are a lot of bored people in Canberra resetting their cookies over and over. Parra players usually win these things, usually Hindmarsh, Mateo may get up this time.

    No - Daily Telegraph polls let you vote continuously and a small number of people with no time on their hands (ex Liberal staffers likely - no jobs for them anywhere) are just sitting and pressing vote time and time again. Totally flawed!!

    CW, you cannot continuously vote. I tried to vote twice and I got this message.

    "Poll Results

    You have already voted! Here are the results so far:

    Who do you rate as the best player in the NRL?"

    From Daily Telly

    Raiders fansite The Greenhouse is behind the rally cry, throwing up a post on the reader forum earlier today urging fans to back Carney.

    That thread was later deleted - but the damage was done.

    "I can't imagine why this thread would have been deleted ... I thought it showed a great sense of humour and fun," a serial poster nicknamed "Clinton Schifcofske" wrote.

    "Dean Lance" responded: "It was starting to get attention from people outside the greenhouse."

    Schifcofske added: "So what? There's nothing illegal about what's going on and it's all in good fun. If the DT want to run a blatantly unscientific poll and it get skewed by the Greenhouse, where's the harm?

    "I understand that we're all taking the GH nice and seriously these days, but surely that doesn't have to be at the expense of having a little fun with something like this?"

    Not that it ended there. Schifcofske continued: "Besides, now someone's pushing Braith Anasta instead, and we're going to be stuck with HIM as the best footballer in the country. Much better if we hijack it for outselves."

    To which Lance replied: "Can't let Anasta win. Everyone knows what to do. I am still voting a lot."

    Yes you can obviously get around it and vote more regularly by using other methods. But really who could be stuffed?..... Except for a select few here ;)

    From CW's comment one would assume that he thought you could simply keep voting. Without using other methods to trick the system.

    Yeah, far more fun to needle people with banal and peurile nonsense.

    works for most posters on here Mata's.

    I hardly think Byso is the only one guilty of that :)
