Disagree with most of thatWhat if Cleary stayed? - We would have won at least one premiership if not 2 or 3 after
What if the Warriors won the premiership in 2002? We would have won it again a few years later
What if the Warriors won the premiership in 2011? We would have won it again a few years later
What if the Warriors didn't get caught cheating the cap and docked 2 points in 2006? We would have made the finals and made a statement.
What if the Warriors didn't get docked 2 points for a interchange violation in 1995? We would have made the finals and made a statement saying the Warriors are here to play and not to be made fun of.
Cleary was on the outer before he had that miracle run into the gf, the consensus was he could get you consistent but that next level, this would follow him and get him moved on from Panthers the first time and Tigers where he had the same problem. 2011 we had a bit of luck and form, we weren’t an amazing squad. It still took Cleary another decade with better squads to get there.
2002 really was our best chance we had unlocked the formula on how to play, inexperience and the Fitler incident cost us., 2003 was our next best shot but got a bit cocky after demolishing the Bulldogs and got ambushed by Penrith.
2006 i don’t think was anything to write home historically.
95 was a travesty, we should have made the finals and some much needed confidence and belief.
Cant focus on what if’s it doesn’t do any good, what happened has happened and circumstances don’t always line up
