See you early Feb.
Make it March.
Ummm I might be a bit slow on the uptake here but I don't get what you are trying to get at here.
For example, this is where we came:
2007: 2nd (Runner up)
2008: 2nd (Premiers)
2009: 5th (Out first round)
2010: 8th (Out first round)
2011: 2nd (Premiers)
2012: 4th (Out week 3)
The premiers came from the following positions:
Finally, where did the Premiers come the next year:
2007: (Brisbane) 8th
2008: (Melbourne) 1st
2009: (Manly) 5th
2010: (Melbourne) 16th
2011: (Dragons) 5th
2012: (Manly) 4th
The only point I see you trying to make is that Melbourne didn't win in 2009 and therefore, because they knocked us out, we should have been premiers (from 5th place). This is completely incorrect as we don't know what would have happened if things were different.
pretty impressive for 2 o'clock in the morning!
Poor coaching obviously
Over to you Ryan.
Ummm... didn't we come 1st in 2008?
I seem to recall it was 40 nil, pretty sure we won that one.
Not at the end of the regular season. We haven't won the minor premiership since 1997.
Had drunk a bit too
Technically seeing as how we lost the prelim final to the eventual premiers this year we came 3rd, Souffs came 4th.
makes it all the more impressive,or is that how you were able to understand the original post?
Well here's one to look forward to if history's right : the beaten grand finalists don't make the 8 the year after.
2010 - roosters
2011 - warriors
Both failed to make the 8 the year after there gf appearance
Same with Parra in 2009 as losing finalists missing the 8 the next year, so hopefully 4 in a row for the losing finalists!!
I think the point was, as defending premiers, we finished 4th this season. The last defending premiers finished 5th.
In fact, we were the best placed defending premiers since Penrith in 2004 (legal anyway)............and showing just how hard it is to back up the following season after winning a comp (legally anyway).
My post from early August
