    Ballad of Maroon

    The vital things are simple when you analyze the brief
    All of it connected by a bond of self belief

    For when outside forces swarm to throw your focus in a spin
    To keep things in perspective - close your eyes and look within

    It’s not about a contract; it’s not about a name

    It’s not about the glory days; it’s not about the fame
    It’s about that single moment when you first walk in the shed
    And you see the reason hanging there with pride in every thread

    And suddenly it hits you - you’ve been chosen for the cause
    And that sacred piece of proud maroon - tonight, it will be yours
    Tonight, you get to fill it with whatever gifts you own
    The sixteen others hanging let you know you’re not alone

    Then you see the road behind you - all the backyard games you played
    All the dreams that set your eyes alight - the first team that you made
    The heroes that inspired you; that hill you had to climb
    It has brought you to this jersey and a voice that says, “It’s time”

    What I would have given when I first picked up a ball
    To be honoured with this moment and the chance to give my all
    What I would have traded to be blessed with this position
    To be part of what I dreamt of - to be part of the tradition

    Like a million kids today, I had the passion and the pride
    But I didn’t have the talent and I didn’t make the side
    So instead, I will be watching when you wear that sacred colour
    And the battle cry goes up from Caxton Street to Cunamulla

    And you, the kid who got there, will be wearing Queensland’s letter
    As a player and a person, this will only make you better
    Because you’ll know that there’s no limit to the things that you can do
    When you take the field and realize that your heart’s beneath the Q

    I saw Johnson at the end, I bet he has one hell of a headache today.

    Fair dinkum, I have never seen an NRL player that has a worse tackling style. So many times I have seen him come into a tackle with his head on the inside of the players body.

    Correct me if im wrong but wasnt that how he got knocked out last year as well?

    Exactly the same way, yeah. It's not an Origin game for him if he can remember the game. To truly be a SOO clash, he has to wake up in the sheds after the match, rather than be there for the final whistle.

    He has seriously issues and too many more concussions will be dangerous for him. Head trauma is very serious and can have long term effects.

    I agree, this guy better watch out!  i'd rather see an awesome player retire way too early and be broke than live with a permanent head injury.
