Still don't like this finals system.

Re-seeding like the old model

Melbourne - Cowboys
Roosters - Panthers
Broncos - Sea Eagles
Sharks - Eels

Where there is doubt over who will progress, instead of top 4 that we already know have a second life.

Team Named for Mr Blonde's Watching Of The NRL/ISP Finals This Weekend:
50" TV (c)
Remote Control for 50" TV (vc)
Sour Cream and Chives Chips
Wasabi Rice Crackers
Creamy Onion Dip
Steinlager
Bacardi and Coke Zero
Red Wine Yet To Be Named
White Wine Also Yet To Be Named
MySky - maybe for every game except Roosters/Broncos game as other three games clash with All Blacks and possible family dinners. If no event Saturday, will be dropped. Same Sunday. MySky talking to manager about a release if he's not played and freakin Ivan Cleary's calling me....

I'm really pleased for those named, they've, y'know, followed the, the, um, process. Y'know, a lot of, sort of, um, hard work's been done. The boys want to prove themselves, I've been really, y'know, pleased, actually, with their work all season. So, yeah. Y'know. Some might drop off on the various game days - Wasabi might not fit the process, so Tangy BBQ comes in. Bacardi might get replaced by Absolut. Still have to, y'know, fitness, um, test, the, the, Red Wine and White Wine positions, who'll be best fits best there.

NRL: Roosters/Eels/Panthers/Cowboys
ISP: Bulldogs/Warriors

Melbourne Storm just scored the "Try of the Year"
Amazing Try
That Bromwich was a good one eh. Keeping the ball alive on the last tackle moving it round before the opening arrived, everyone supporting the ball carrier.

Also love the atmosphere of this game. Decent crowd then when tries like that are scored when all of the players come charging in jumping over each over showing camaraderie it's fantastic to watch and it will only get better as teams get eliminated. Finals are what team sports are all about as you train with your team mates all year to get here.

That was a pretty nice contest; especially the first half when it seemed like all the Storm at the start. The Eels absorbed the early pressure and came back. They later showed the completion rates and the Eels were close to 100% so most of the early Storm possession was off the back of penalties.

In a AFL city in comparison to Allianz tonight, with 5 million league supporters but a few people and their dogs in the stadium.

Both of the Sydney games have bee pretty poorly attended. We have had excuses over the last few years that its unfair to travel within the city or in Manly's case over the bridge so their team get a real home game. At one time all of the semi finals would played in Sydney, come September all games would be in Sydney even if it was Canberra vs Brisbane.

A Warriors supportyer complaining about finals attendance.:rolleyes: What has our finals attendance been the last five years.:(
