    I repost this for your perusal. Definitely the turning point of the 2007 Grand Final and a moment of illness for most Manly fans.

    Watch and be outraged once again!

    I haved sorta moved on, but did enjoy it in origin when Crocker was using some of his dog moves on Wallace and Mason came in and cleaned him up

    That clip just confirms what I have been saying all along. It was a legitimate hit. When Crocker hits Stewart (at head height yes) Stewart is just about on his knees.

    Crocker committed to the hit well before that though, and it would have been way too late to pull out.

    Yes there may have been contact with the head but it was accidental, penalty at most.

    Move on

    My only problem with this is not one forward is near him protecting him.

    If crocker has the pace to get there certainly one of our forwards could have made the effort to get between him and crocker.

    It's something our forwards have to be accountable for.

    Interestingly, Jamie Lyon was on 9 news tonight (23/5) saying the team had been hurting over the Grand Final.

    And said it was time to move on.... The timing!

    Totally agree. It's old news. There is nothing that we can do about the result so why worry about it anymore?
