    Bring back Holbrook

    Obviously didnt watch the watch the first half.
  3. Magic AJ Parker

    Sure I did, I watched Feldt put Mam on his backside in one of the worst attempted tackles you'll see this year to then set up the try for Drinkwater (although should've been called back for obstruction).

    Then I watched Townsend run poor shape with no numbers down the right edge only for them to continually load up on the left edge to no effect.

    I have really rated Dearden since his switch to the Cowboys and have made posts that state as much but he and Townsend got it wrong last night.

    I'm sorry you're upset because I criticised 3 Qld players in one post.

    He's very happy in Sydney, wants to bring best Buddy Davey F down with him as well.

    Fifita is mad if he doesn't activate his get out clause. Should take a slight haircut and get the fuck out of there. Plenty of clubs will offer him around the 900k mark still.

    I can’t help but think that RTS at fullback will be the what if for the Warriors if they really stick to their guns of playing him in the centres.

    With AFB moving on next year and Shaun Johnson not getting any younger this really feels like their best chance of pushing for a comp.

    Arthurs drop over the tryline was costly.

    And Kitoni has a big boot, going for 2 on that penalty might have been a decent shout. If it goes dead you force a 20m dropout. At least I still think you do.

    For a game that finished 34-32 it’s crazy how many points were left out on the field.

    Katoni Staggs absolutely fumbles what should’ve been a simple spread and try after the Coates knock on from a bomb.

    Arthur’s knock on although I don’t think it’s 100% Arthurs fault, that’s a last second pass, thrown hard only 2 metres away. I think in that kind of scenario Cobbo needs to just go himself there.

    And then the most bizarre of them all, the Munster no try. In what world was Mariner ever tackled? And if he was then it had to be a voluntary tackle.

    In the 3 games prior to that game Melbourne had score 50 points and conceded 40. A 34-32 scoreline really was out of the blue, but made for a great watch.

    How does Fletcher Baker keep getting picked in first grade? Watching a reserve grade halfback run over top of him to score was putrid.

    That hip drop sin bin on Radley is concerning for the game if that’s where they are taking it. If the only criteria they are looking at is “lost feet” and “some part of body landed on leg” then that’s a broad criteria.

    Radley was simply diving to make a covering tackle…

    I had no problems with the Max Plath one because it’s avoidable and there’s no benefit to the defensive team other than a slower player the ball but you can’t stop defenders from “losing their feet”.

    Its an idiotic expectation after Dearden carved them up the first half down the left. And no mention of Robson is the giveaway, sweetie.
  14. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Nothing is more hilarious than watching Robinson, one of the foremost supporters of this high tackle sin bin/send off shit, completely downplay protecting players when it's one of his at fault.

    Then trying to say "oh if that's the new standard..." like a precedent of faggy send offs and sin bins wasnt already upon us, shut up you fucking goose.

    He really has become one of the biggest sook's in the game. Enjoying it tho.

    Arthurs' drop is unforgivable. But of all the ways Brisbane threw that game away the one that sticks in my mind was Mam. Running it on last, on halfway, when they were already ahead typifies what is wrong with so many players in this day and age. Percentage footy is a foreign concept to them. It's just all-out attack, attack, attack. Everything fell apart from that cheap turnover on halfway. Shouldve been drilled into the corner.

    That said it's an enormous effort to push Melbourne with no Walsh, Haas and no Reynolds for the second half.

    Tedesco goes off and Easts score 26 points. How much clearer can it be? Not a chance in hell he should be captaining either NSW or Australia again.

    The problem with Baker in the Broncos side is he’s a late set carry and Carrigan already takes all of those carries and then some. You’re better off with a play 1 or 2 carry prop who’s going to take all those tough carries or a real quality defensive prop that’s going to take a bit of workload off others and sure up your middle.

    It’s just about the worst side in the comp that Baker could’ve joined and I don’t think he has a spot in the side unless Carrigan is out or they’re planning to rotate him off the field in games.

    Sweetie gives the vibe that I’ve just clicked on a cracking Karen video and shit is about to go down.

    It’s a weird energy MF.
  19. Magic AJ Parker

    I’ve always said I would pick Latrell Mitchell in Origin if available but he really does look super unfit this year. Not so much physique as he’s always been a big body but just effort. There was a moment in the middle of that first half where he just has to wrap around Jack Wighton to make it a 2 on 1 but he just physically can’t do it because he’s so gassed and he’s just walking making no effort to support.
  20. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    I get under your skin. It's surprisingly easy after all this time.
