So true Mark, it's a bloody Riff production line of talented youngsters just chugging along as the seasons go by. They are in such a good place, their young elite up coming players will want to play for them even at bargain basement prices. They will just build a team around their spine, even though the spine will cost Penrith half of their cap. Bit like the Storm when they had the big 3, all's Bellyache had to do was find some solider ants to do the hard yakka and then, hey presto we got ourselves a winning combo.Could we be seeing the start of a St George like dynasty ???
Yeah I know , departures and injuries can play a big part in success BUT let’s remember this,
They won the GF for the four grades below First Grade AND completely dominated the QLD side in the state championship game.
Obviously their 6/7/9/1 are their keys and of course their 9 leaves for greener pastures in 2023, but you’d imagine they’d have 4 of 5 lining up to replace him.
Passion and hunger is the important thing and that will start to wane with time , but I believe it’s infinitely possible to see them win 3 , 4 or maybe 5 in a row.
Absolutely light years ahead of any other team.
Was it you that was once accused of slowing Biff’s internet? Those were the days…lol at me.
I've slow internet atm... and went outside as there's things to do and I didn't realise but the webpage didn't update.
So until about 2 mins ago I thought the final score was 22-0.
And that was the visible difference between the 2 sides, one was insanely focused and the other had no idea.Parra made such a big deal about it's just another game, normal routines, all players drove themselves to the stadium blah blah have fun. Idiots. It's not just another game. You're lucky if you get 1 shot at it. Make it intense, make it focused, have the squad together all week in camp and to the stadium. They psyched themselves out of it by all the carry on. Be focused, be intense, be nervous. You're there to win a premiership , fu*k having fun. That's for after you win.
I know one thing that end to end camera angle they seem to love, needs to be chucked in the bin.I don't think the time slot has much to do with it as plenty are saying. I think a lot of fans are disgruntled to the point that if their team's not playing, they couldn't give a rats.
But on a separate issue. I know that 9 have the exclusive rights to show the game. But why the f*ck is it shown in standard definition ? It's not 1998. Either broadcast in high definition or let Fox show it as well.
