When I first started supporting the Sea Eagles in the late 60s and early 70s, there were many seasons in which we were the classiest attacking sides and looked like the top team many times. Come semi-final time however, the Dragons and the Rabbits in particular used strong-arm and brutal tactics to bash us and in many instances we fell apart. We didn't cope with the rough stuff and the other clubs knew it. Come 2011 and our team stood up to the trash and garbage that 'spewed out' of Melbourne and we showed the world how to beat them. No longer are the Sea Eagles soft or pushovers. Depite the imminent suspensions, these blokes will stand up and do us proud!!!
