Rostos must be from Sydney. He thinks a big hit is the most effective way of forcing a knock on. It's the least effective tackle, hence why Melbourne are so good at league.

I love watching Rostos struggling to fathom just how garbage the doggies played in the final. Classic stuff.... if you can't handle the sport, I suggest leaving it. 

There are teams that ooze finals.... the dogs? Please...maybe another year or 20

Wow rostos,

firstly graham is a grub its a shame the last 2 players in nrl to be charged with biteing were bulldogs.. ??

Ben barba was very very quiet and reynolds kicking game was pathetic to be honest

very sad to see the bulldogs win 3 minor premierships and could not deliver in any of the 3.

Manly could not have played any worse even if they were trying to lose that qualifying final. I agree that night Storm just exploited how poorly Manly played that night.

Last night the Storm were simply outstanding. A lot of Bulldogs' errors were forced simply from Storm's pressure. Even that drop ball from Barba off Cronk's bomb early on was a direct result of how precise Cronk's skewing kick was. That try where Cronk just popped that ball in space for Bully to cut through on an angle just knowing he was going to be there was just a thing of beauty. If you can not appreciate how great that was and how well the Storm played then I'm afraid you are just looking at that game through your blue and white glasses.

Dogs at their best simply just would not have challenged the Storm last night. They played pretty much a perfect game when it really mattered.


name me one big collision that forced the dogs to lose the ball?

NAME ME ONE...

Its simple , Storm simply walked on the park and the opposition necked themselves ALL 3 finals games...

That is why they are the Stephen Bradbury of the NRL finals series..

Honestly, if the bulldogs turned up the way they did but the storm were involved in challenges the 2 weeks prior, then, i honestly would say, well, thats footy...

But 3 friggin weeks in a row and all the oppositions have necked themselves?

Yep, my bad...

TOny williams gets the ball off a tap, no one near him and he drops it cold...Yep, great d caused that.

Tafua knockes the ball into touch with no one near him, yep, great d...

Glenn Stewart knocks the ball on from the scrum base, yep, great d causes that...

Matai knocks the ball on from dummy half , yep, great d causes that.....

Perret knocks the ball on first tackle from the scrum with no one around him, yep, great d causes that.

Reynold drops the ball cold from a simple legs tackle, yep, great d there....

Do you want me to go on?

How would any half back go when the opposition has 66% of the ball in the first half....

Next year, we get T REX....

T- REX under Toovey ?

T-Rex under Hasler......

Also watch Josh Hackson and Dale Finucane with one year under there belt..These 2 will be origin players very very shortly.

Jono Wright can darn off, we get the experienced Steve Turner back.

Kasiano will get whipped in the off season and will lose weight....

Barba will be even better...We also get Trent Hodkinson back, our starting half back....Before anyone says anything...watch him under Hasler when he was at Manly... Kevin Moore molested his confidence......

The fact that we won the minor premiership in all 3 grades shows we have some great talent coming through....No doubt the loss of the NYC player of the year Klemmer had a big impact on the NYC team...

In terms of the NSW cup, i have no idea what happened there....

Let me finish off by saying, we lost by 10 points in the NRL GF...we lost by 10 points and take into consideration these 2 points...

- "That was the greatest defensive performance i have ever seen from a storm team since i have been involved in this club". Bellamy....... And bellamy has coached some ridicolosly good teams before..

- Sports Data statistics showed Storm had a 97 per cent efficiency rating, a grand final record, with only five potential plays lost out of 180.

Watch out next year

Manly

These plodders never win in Melbourne and had no chance even if they had 100% completion rate


Manly could have had 18 players on the field to the Storm's 13 and they still had no chance

Doggies attack when someone finally works out how to defend against them


Bellamy > Hasler

Tigers won the other 2 junior GF's as well as the under 20's. With equal luck they might win the flag in the next few years.

There is something that everyone has missed about this GF.

What about those 2 poor person that had to sit either side of Rostos through that whole game?

All these dogs fans telling me how good Greenberg is because he turned around the club and got rid of the grub element. Players trying to bite opposition players ears off, gutless, faceless comments to female reporters. Sounds like the same old dogs to me. Once a grub club, always a grub club

Maybe next time the dogs fans will celebrate on the streets of Belmore after they win the grand final, not before they lose it

a helicopter overhead justifies making a sexist comment while not having the guts to show your face?

Yeah, because helicopters fly over BSG every day with cameras focusing in on the playing surface with no games being played....

Were the comments DIRECTED at the journos?

Its a free country, helicopters can fly anywhere outside of a flight path.

And the comments were directed at a journalist, a female one

The club celebrates ON PRIVATE PROPERTY for a friggin REASON. This pricks from the telegraph because it was a private function abused the privelage and flew over the ground to film in...

Were the players looking at the jorno when making those comments?

Or did the journo OVER HEAR what was being said between themselves?

No doubt it was said, show me that it was directed at her....

Belmore is public property, and it was not a telegraph helicopter. The club has admitted the comments were directed at a female journalist

For somebody with such a big opinion on the matter you seem have zero clue what the facts are

oh thats right, its the club of biters and cheats and drug taking and rapists, they can do nothing wrong

Not when one of the tennants can "hire it" for a private function. It is then deemed private.

If that journo "overheard" what was said, then suck garbage to her, she shouldnt be trying to spy and snoop at a private function.

belmore is a public property, sure, then why wasnt i allowed to go for a stroll around and through the ground when the team went through there final training sessions? Just like the mad monday celebrations, the tenneants and can hire it and deem it private property...
