No, but I heard Dazzler say that we "over achieved" in 2005 AGAIN.

Byso - Des said that Manly overachieved in the season but underachieved in the semis. This year they hope to do something about it!!!! (Get your quotes correct as what you leave out is an important part of the story - typical of someone else you seem to have a love affair with :blaugh):

Are you suggestion that falling into the semis by losing 10 match's in 13 rounds. Plus a RECORD flogging. 2 years in a row! is an over-achievement?

As far as I'm concerned he didn't "Over-achieve" at all. :blah: :blah:

Making the 8 was simply "delivering" on a requirement. Nothing more than that.

Byso get over it. Compared to coming second last the year before creeping into the finals is a big over achievement. Deep down they probably thought we were a year away from it.

Was anyone else totally creeped out by the chiefs hair?

I wonder how long ago the team greetings were taped along with the NRL tv add as Beaver was the first to speak in the greeting and is also holding the trophy on the add. Would that indicate that he was neck and neck in the running for captain or that BK just prefers to keep a low profile.

:lol: :lol: as soon as I heard that comment I knew Byso would mention it. So very predictable. I think it must be a new word in Bysos vocabulary!!!

I thought he said we "overachieved" early on then "underachieved" at the end of the season. I agree with him and dont see the problem with his comments.

They were taped last week. They said they sent out the requests to the clubs but at the time the Warriors had just been hit by the fine

I was thinking the same thing...probably better suited to someone half his age trying out for the Beatles tribute band!

An Achievement is AN ACT OF ACHIEVING OR REACHING A GOAL... I believe with the years we had prior perhaps the team exceeded the goal they had in mind... and therefore "over-achieved"
