Hi all, I'm long time reader, first time poster. Anyway, the approach to the next 4 weeks is starting to feel like that slow winding down of an unsuccessful campaign. The games don't really mean anything as far as the ladder goes. Sure, we might clinch the Minor Premiership (great for the players $$$$$ and pretty good for us to have a Sunday game first week of the finals) but the McIntyre equates minor premiers and second place identically. It may even end up being advantageous for us to finish second for hype reasons, heck, we might even get a withering Brisbane team first up instead of a rejuvenated Roosters, for example. I'm really not excited for the Knights game in the usual sense, I'm mostly thinking about September. It'll be tough to get this attitude out of the players too.
