The Hype Didn't help us!! I feared the headlines and articles in the papers today. We have played well thus far to get to the top of the table (we are still there for at least another week unbelievably) but the talk about 8 rep players and adulation for being top of the table was fodder to the professional Broncos outfit. They dissected us, hit our weak areas, chewed us up and spat us out. We have made some gains this year and there are good signs but we are still short of being a real top 4 team and no hype or 'exaggerated headlines' can disguise us. We may well improve further, we may even make the semis but until we can front up in the big games at night against the might of the Dragons, Broncos, Dogs, Rooster and Panthers all the claims about 8 Rep players, Manly number 1 and 'good things' are but empty whistles into the wind. I would rather the papers said we were crap and don't deserve to be there!!! :shock: !BDH!
