Also I think you have to say that the competition is the most even it has been, it is a tipster's nightmare with some of these results

Tonight we have a game in the superleague where a team is getting 34 point start!!! We are not going to see that in our lifetime in the NRL

And the Roosters cant even score one try with the current NSW half back playing the whole game?

Agree. It's only round 2, and we've had some great games. Knights v Dragons was good, Manly v Warriors was a great game and Manly v Tigers on Friday I thought was quite good.

Not sure how much people expect out of Riff v Rooters when you look at the squads

The comp is even, but the wrestle has ruined the game......

Hipster = PBR drinking guy in skinny jeans and whack hair cut. That's what I've picked up from MMA forums over the years. You do make a good point about them not surviving in D town though.

Dark and Stormy is bundy/dark rum and ginger beer you add diet pepsi?

Just because Mitchell Pearce is the NSW halfback, doesn't mean he's any good.

How would you increase the speed of play the ball area and general ruck play then? What you consider as a wrestle may not be so for someone else. When you start blowing penalties based on opinions then it becomes very grey IMO.

Very hard to police that area of the game

Oh yes.  Bundy and ginger beer.   However ginger beer is virtually impossible to find here in the States.  Or at least in Detroit.  So when mates bring over the Bundy, it's Diet Pepsi.  Love the Bundy and ginger beer though.....very sublime.



Hahaha.....

PBR is drunk by whackjobs and steel millers and auto builders and motorcycle gangs in Detroit.  This isn't box Chicago.    No hipsters.

So he wouldnt be in the top 5 half backs in NSW?

WHo is better? Luke Walsh?  Trent Hodkinson?

Super League is rubbish.  Amateur-ish compared to the NRL.

Watch games between 2001 and 2004

BEFORE BELLAMY changed the game and the NRL allowed him to do so.....

We could pick apart the games, how they're played and officiated but at the end of the day we'll all be back next weekend and the one after that betting our money (hard earned or easy) on the NRL and the cycle will continue.

Go the friggin Bunnies...

He would be in the top 5. Problem is, they are all garbage.

Seriously, what halves combination do NSW have to challenge Cronk and Thurston?

EVERY NSW halfback is garbage compared to that

I am merely complaining about it from a viewers perspective, if i want to see teams play and go scoreless, i would watch soccer, not NRL...

Wasn't taking a shot Rostos. Just pointing out the cycle. Product of most pro sports is on the decline as the true professional era progresses...

Storm is out to -7.5/-8 now and ML down to 1.40. Should have jumped on it earlier.
