Just finished watching the Matty Johns show and was amazed at how the great Manly side of the mid to late 90's did not even rate a single mention even though every big game that they mentioned from that period involved Manly. It was like they took pleasure in all the matches we lost. And then I realised that it was complete jealousy and Saltyness of Manly's success that has elevated matches like the 97 GF to such a high status. I dare say if Newcastle beat anyone else that year it would barely rate a mention. Now days we only enter the conversation for all the wrong reasons and some even feel sorry for us. Can't wait to stick it up them when it all turns around.

Performance enhancing substances.

Agreed. The also completely white out the fact that several Knights players from that 97 side, including Robbie O'Davis and Adam Macdougall, tested positive for anabolic steroid use too.
