    snake77 Warriors 1st Grader

    Got some good news a few days ago. My missus is taking off with the kids up north for the weekend. Don't worry she's coming back.;) But it does mean I can relax and watch the games all day without blindsided by a 3 year old.

    So the Storm vs the Sharks. Weather prediction for Sydney on Sunday is for a Sharknado to hit later in the day.;)

    I am only picking the Sharks out of sympathy for their fans and still waiting 49 years later . At least I have only been waiting less than half that for the warriors so I still got plenty of time to bitch an moan an enjoy and laugh an cry.

    Just another reason why Im going Storm. No matter how shit its been not having a Premiership Ive always found solace in the fact that the Sharks have been suffering for 50 years (after this weekend ;) ). If they win one the Warriors will be the oldest bridesmaids in the comp. Just another kick in the teeth for us and we're not even playing...

    If the Sharks do it this year we have had over the last few years. South break their 40 year drought, the Cowboys win their first premiership followed by the Sharks. A pattern emerging? You guys might just get me on the Sharks bandwagon if in a roundabout screwed up logic it helps the Warriors chances in 2017.:confused:

    Sharks, a bit reluctantly and - as I posted on the "finals" thread, based on the number of ex-Warriors in their ranks - it's 4, yeah? Maloney, Townsend, Bukuya and Feki?

    Both teams play a bit too ugly and boring for my taste and yes, a Sharks win makes us the oldest bridesmaid but so what...snake77's logic is impecable!!

    IF THE SHARKS WIN IN 2016, 2017 WARRIORS NRL PREMIERS!!!

    And I'd like Harold Holt's autograph...:)

    Good grief not those bloody pics again ... I feel dirty & violated :yuck::p

    Storm all the way ... simply cos they're the lesser of two evils IMO & the longest current bridesmaids besides us

    (rightful) Clive Churchill Medal Winner - Jesse Bromwich ... but knowing the bloody skips they'll pick either Cronk, Smith or Gallen regardless :finger::D

    The NRL want the Sharks to get the prem. The fantasy comes true, the 50 year fairy tale. The only team better than the sharks were the raiders. The storm are going to get rick rolled. Mic Ennis getting nothing for a facial shoulder charge is just another example of NRL corruption.

    I personally would rather have had the Raiders or Cowboys win than either of these two teams. Its a travesty. I guess one more Storm trophy wont hurt, then we can just say, did they really win it or did they cheat again.

    Going for the Storm but the conspiracy theorist in me feels the fairytale story in the Sharks (same as previous years JT premiership last year, "pride of the league" Souths victory the year before) will be "encouraged" to happen.

    Cmon Sharkies!

    Isnt it a little unfair that Storm supporters get to sport a picture of the legendary Paul Gallen, whilst the Sharks supporters have to wear a pic of Chewbacca?

    My thoughts exactly. Sort of feels like if you are backing the Storm, either way, win or lose you are going to win.

    How dare you compare Cam Smith to the Mighty Chewie ... that furry little muppet is obviously an Ewok

    As for Gallen, well he's the grubbiest villain in the game ... so that tubby grub is obviously Jabba the Hutt

    And seeing how we've already been exposed to this blatant skippy homoerotica can I at least add something more tasteful ...

    Must be some photo shopping there as Le Chad and Pomkins are looking the same height as Manu. Bet the bottom half of the picture shows them standing on telephone books.

    C-Money does look bigger in that pic - in all aspects.....

    I like the looks on their faces

    LeChad: 'Later boys, I wanna play in a Grand Final next season'

    Pomkins: 'What the fuck was I thinking signing for these muppets'

    Manu: 'Is this for the new Wendy's burger?'

    SJ: 'I'm too sexy for my, oh wait...'

    I'd be happy to see the Sharkies go another 50 years without one. COME ON STORM!
