    How did Slater get the Clive Churchill medal - what a joke

    Was a joke

    I said to Lauren at the ground that Slater or Inglis would get it.

    The most deserving was Archer, when the big play was needed, he delivered yet again for Melbourne

    Blair was their best by a mile, and I would have rated Hoffman, Cronk and Inglis ahead of him from the Storm, along with Grothe, Moi Moi and Hindmarsh for the Eels

    I think even Slater was embarrased to get it.

    Hopefully next year he can suffer the form slump that last years winner had this year (nothing to do with Brent's father dying but just the form slump).

    It had to be cameron blair for mom.

    slater came up with two mistakes when the pressure was really on; unfortunately the second one was hidden by that idiot ref's penalty. That capped off an entire game of allowing the storm to slow play the balls down.

    I don't recall a single penalty for that against the storm. Ok they are very skilled at it with the multiple tacklers peeling off in carefully timed fashion, but fxxk there are 2 refs out there. Neither wants to give a penalty unless they think they have to make a call.

    It's like umpires who adopt a 'not out' approch to lbw appeals. They think that a bad no decision will blow over quicker and will be forgotten sooner than a bad 'yes' decision that changes the game conditions more dramatically. At the start of the year the 2 refs were all over the play the ball like a rash.

    Pisses me off that the storm still get away with a defensive strategy that is all about time wasting. Other teams try to dominate and intimidate. the storm just work on capturing a player than walking them to the ground as clumsily as possible. it's like watching your side get caught in a pool of tar.

    Can't believe you cats are cut Melbourne won. Makes Manly's win last year look even better.

    Slater was aight. Clearly the better side.

    Crazy call. He wasn't their best player at all. Plently of others deserving it over him, Smith at least, perhaps even some of their forwards.

    Good to see the Slime almost get there, and go down.  Also good to see Saint Jarrod cry like a baby...Pity it was against Melbourne.  I thought Archer did his best for Parramatta.  That penalty at the end was unfortunately deserved.  Moi Moi had hold of Slater's leg and the penalty was fair.  Was there really a second ref out there?  Didn't notice one.  Our U20s really should have been there.  Can't really understand how they meekly limped out in the finals.

    No way Slater was best on ground. Hayne, however, was definitely worst on ground. His kicking game was reminiscent of Orford's. What a myth......the world's best player my ar$e. World's biggest choker more like it. Wonder if he'll credit the Hillsong happy happy clap clap stuff  for his woeful performance yesterday. Perhaps Jesus was just testing him ?

    They probably gave it to Slater on the back of his performances against Manly and Brisbane in weeks 1 /3 of the finals. ???

    From reading the Telegraph all week I thought god was on Parra's side.  Don't half of their team pray before a game for a win?  Aren't most of them 'born again'?  This game proveed that either god doesn't exist (my preferred option), or that he hates Westies.  I've long thought that that's the problem with Kite.  having found god, the guys gone soft.

    What a joke. I thought Blair and Cronk were their best. Grothe and Moi Moi had better games than Slater.

    Sorry CliffyIG, I hadn't considered you've got a mortgage on the moniker and they were appealing to you
