I just need a morning rant after last night. I completely understand that our team needs to improve and I hope that happens. They barely even got to train before this that match though. The fact is our team and some others, do not have a fair chance to win this comp. The eels, despite salary cap-cheating are given a dream draw, a mass of televised matches - after finishing 10th in 2015 - and constant promotion from channel 9 who have are aligned with the Nrl to secure ratings. The donkeys play almost every Friday night and have the benefit of a regulated turn-around recovery period. I would like to see how both those teams would have fared given our early schedule. I'd say they'd be at least one win down. The unfairness of scheduling based on popularity should not happen in a national competition! Every team needs to be provided with as close to equal opportunities to win this current farce of a comp. Not happy and this morning my inner Matai is combining with my recently acquired inner Marty, which I need to surprise or I just might slam tackle a broncos supporting workmate today. Above all, Go Manly!
