    First camera phone was in 2002. Really until social media you could get away with a lot especially compared to these days.

    So NRL GF coming up this Sunday Oct 2.
    The Storm and Minor Premiers taking on the Cronulla Sharks !
    Storm are a class squad who will be hard to beat - long time proven players such as Cameron Smith Cooper Cronk will be hard to control the full 80mins.
    They have won the title 3odd times the last 10yrs so they know what needs to be done on the day.
    The Sharks, well they have NEVER won a GF but 2 minor prems that I can recall.
    They have played 4 GF's since the club entered in 1963 and lost 4. 3 against my Manly club that the '73 GF was a brutal ol school smash up blood bath.
    So backing the under dog and Sydney team ofcourse good luck to them they'll need it.
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.

    The referee's need to clamp down on the Storm's gang tackles, the chicken wing & neck holding holding tactics.
    Cameron Smith's tactic of giving you a fore arm across the the throat, as he let's you up to play the ball,needs to be looked at as well.
    I wanna see a hard fast game, niggles are niggles, hurting your opponent, while he is held down by at least 3 other tacklers is crap, & should be punished severely.
    For the record I am a Panthers supporter, but I don't like the crap, that Bellamy coached players are bringing into the game.
    Remember the " Slater" rule they had to introduce, to stop him kicking attacking players in the face, as they tried to ground the ball across the try line.

    Oh yer, the storms tactics constantly push the professional foul boundaries.
    Bellamy sure has seen ways to work around the system.
    Smith gets away with so much !
    That Slater rule came into play in the Titans Broncos game the other week. joke !
    Lets hope the refs knuckle down on them this GF and we see a tuff open game.
    Look forward how Fifita performs the mug lol.....Sharks are looking good I reckon.

    Panthers looking good for next season mate - young up and coming squad.

    Go figure NRL GF coming up this weekend.
    Can't see the Storm losing - been a perfect season you could say and with probably one of the best I've seen in this game last 30yrs got to give it to Cameron Smith.
    A class player on the pitch and pretty good role model off the pitch imo.
    If Thurston was playing I would give the cowboys a better chance but they really need to play above themselves this last roll of dice coming from 8th place on the ladder, huge roll they have been on.
    Stupidest thing I heard on talk back this morn NRL have booked some rapper from the US Mackelmore as the main entertainment who of all things is a huge supporter of SSM etcetc having a hit song stirring up the US gov right wing, people and more......
    Now don't get me wrong I dgaf about this stuff but what timing eh ???????
    CEO Greenberg was on justifying the choice (I think he's singing this song) but it went down like a led balloon via callers and the radio jock.
    Now picture it, kids and all in the crowd, people calling out Yes others No - you imagine what the blue collars will be dishing out if it all go's pear shaped.
    People called up and said now they are not going, other said its my bloody day off watch some football and forget about things etc things like that.
    I'll be watching from the comfort of home hope it doesn't end up ugly.

    Meh.

    Cronulla were in the grand final last year and I didn't watch it (I was also in Vanuatu). I'll be in France this year and will repeat last years effort.

    I don't care about the pre match entertainment, the nrl couldn't organise a root in a brothel so their choice of entertainment is no surprise.

    I'm more pissed that the Cowboys aren't allowed to train on the ground because Macklemore needs to do sound tests.

    What is it with Sports these days, they dont think the spectacle of the sport is enough? They need to bring in entertainment, same as with Supercars
    Wierd, and the trouble is, the entertainment starts to take on more and more importance all the time, degrading what the event originally was

    This Macklemore guy got as much coverage as the NRL grand final itself
