    Did anyone see that in the Telegraph yesterday? We get about 3 mentions all up in the entire bloody thing - and they were all fight-related!! (mostly Les Boyd). Of course no mention at all about our 95-97 team which set all sorts of records, especially defensive ones. No mention of our brilliant '70s teams on-field exploits. These type of things are beginning to bug me these days....

    At least the 1997 GF wasn't the top-rated GF.

    How the hell can Crowe and Holmes a Court buying Souths be the 8th most important moment in rugby league history? Geez, then Manly getting our license back and separating from the Northern Eagles must be the 7th biggest...... :cop:

    These sorts of things are great for stirring harmless controversy and general discussion/debate about the game.

    For instance :
    "83. Blocker's head tap on Eddie Ward at Brookie 15/07/90"

    Yes, i can see how this was meaningful in the context of a major sport and deserved to be in the top 100 historical moments.................. :lol:
