  2. Oh absolutely, I'm not happy he did it at all and I can understand the club having the shits. I guess I was more happy that, whilst he had too many, he didn't go completely batshit like in the past
  3. I don't have aircon in my room at home- my kids don't have aircon in their classrooms at school, I don't get three fucking free meals a day. I don't have access to a gym for free. I don't get to go on picnics with my partner for the day , because I have to fucking work!! I don't get free access to a computer or study- I , the one doing the fucking the right thing have to pay for all of this. So do you really think it is rubbish?
  4. I disagree also...the game is dying and I cannot see any new teams particularly reallocated ones winning any new fans at all.
  5. Everyone that I have spoken to says this version (the third, I believe) has told me that it is shithouse. I agree that "Eagle the eagle" was pretty good. I tend to enjoy English movies much more than the Hollywood stuff...the Pommie ones seem to have better acting and story lines.

    Mostly to the players and the leeches called player managers.
  7. I've heard the wives of each detest one other. Maybe thats affected the boys friendship too.

    The ARL/NRL could’ve had the number one code in the country years ago if they’d spent some money on expansion into the Bush in NSW and Qld. State and Federal govt. money would’ve followed the game into regional centres had the nrl spent some of that media money on expansion rather than leaving the country leagues to fend for themselves. Since the SL war, it would be interesting to see a breakdown where all the money has been going.

    The Movie Thread

    Mmmm. Not sure how to take this. Trouble is, how many modern movies will you go back and watch again, or go out and buy on DVD? So many new movies are epic watch and forget affairs, so full of CGI that if it wasn’t for the noise you’d just go to sleep. I’ll be honest and say the best movie I’ve seen this year was ‘A Star is Born’, and I’m still in shock about what happened in the story. The other good one I saw was on DVD on Friday - ‘Eddie the Eagle’. I don’t mind admitting I choked up a bit over that one.
  10. It was Inglis’ fault in carrying on in try celebrations, getting down on all fours and panting like a dog. Mitchell Pearce was always gonna go harder chasing that.
  11. Yesterday
  12. I wonder what the reason is behind the Smith / Cronk fued? There is no way that it would be just about Cronk wanting to go for Melbourne to Sydney...there must be more to it than that.

    The Movie Thread

    The missus and I were able to get a babysitter and get out to the movies a couple of times over the last month (Woohoo). Got my fix of superhero movies with Captain Marvel and Shazam! I enjoyed the latter much more. Shazam was a lot of fun and had me enjoying myself for a couple of hours. It's pretty much every kid's fantasy - what if I turned into a superhero? 7 out of 10. Captain Marvel was quite bland and unforgettable. Not awful by any means, but definitely one of Marvel's worst efforts. I normally like Brie Larson but in this she just didn't seem to be putting in much effort in this. She just seemed bored through most of it. 4 out of 10.

    The Movie Thread

    You're just watching the wrong movies then. There are plenty of great movies released every year, some of them mainstream and some of them not so well known. I love a lot of the old movies from decades ago, but I'm not about to say that there isn't anything good anymore because it just isn't true. Also remember that back in those days there was just as much rubbish released into cinemas as there is now (percentage-wise at least...there are many more movies released in total each year now). We just remember the good ones because they are the good ones.
  15. I was ok with what they were trying to do because I was sick of players and coaches taking advantage of the refs being lenient in the ruck and offsides. As shit as it was last season with all the penalties, I hated the way the game had become a wrestling slog with tacklers lying all over the ruck taking forever to get off, and standing 3-4 metres offside at every play-the-ball. It made for shitty boring footy. The refs needed to do something about it, but they may have gone a bit overboard at times. The games have started off pretty good in this regard this season, but it won't be long until the teams begin taking advantage of the leniency again. The refs will need to keep a close eye on it.
  16. Absolutely. Last year's refereeing interpretations killed the Eels (not as much as we killed ourselves, but still). The slower game and multiple penalties weren't a good fit for our small mobile forward pack which likes things to be more uptempo to wear down the opposition. This year the refereeing has helped us somewhat.
  17. I always remember this try from QLD where Inglis treats Steve Turner (his Melbourne teammate at the time) like a small child, shoving him to the ground and literally hurdling over him on his way to setting up the try. Not a great moment as a Blues fan, but still funny to watch.
  18. Mitchell Pearce has some deceptive speed, but yeah at his peak there's no way Inglis gets run down in that situation. And even if he was he would just shove them away and keep running. He never was the fastest player going around, but he was fast enough and had the strength to get past anyone.

    I'm all for putting some money into regional areas for their sporting infrastructure, but there's no reason why both things couldn't be achieved. I don't see this as an 'either/or' situation.
  20. Nup. Smith and Cronk really do dislike one another quite a bit it seems. And it's been good watching Cronk get the better of Smith in their last two games, including the GF. Smith would be absolutely filthy about that. It was a good game last night. Brilliant field goal from Mitchell, and great set up by making it seem Cronk was going to get the ball. That's the advantage of having more than one player who can kick a field goal in your team. Watching the Roosters set up fort hat goal made the players in the Tigers/Broncos game last week look even more ridiculously stupid after they tried and failed several times to even set up for the FG properly despite getting good chances to.
  21. Game of the year so far was Storm vs Roosters. Very, very good football. Roosters are still without Friend but gee they are impressive. The difference between Mitchell and other players, apart from his obvious talent, is his sheer willingness to try his hand. Would be hard pressed to see many players so cocky in trying that shot at field goal. Strom were good, but only got back into the game through capitalising on some Roosters lapses. The Roosters will know they need to work on their intensity for 80 minutes. I don’t buy into the tabloid NRL journalism but Smith doesn’t like Cronk very much does he?

    Half these stadiums will be wiped out by rising sea levels anyway. Put some money into RL heartlands like Tamworth, Dubbo in NSW and central Queensland.
  23. Most effective kick he’s ever made
  24. Jacko's NRL debut was when he was at the Chooks against Souths. That game GI made a line break deep in Souths own half and he was away to score for all money..... until Mitchell Pearce chased him down and caught him. That was the moment I knew GI's best was behind him.
  25. That all said, it's an improvement that what we had dished up to us this time last year.
