    After a good start to the season I'm now looking at only 1 tip for the week. What a shocker.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    And true to form, Souths will win tomorrow.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Nah, it's a fair point. The trouble is tho if the cap is removed the chances are the NRL will end up with an EPL scenario with the best players at the richest clubs and the same four or five teams finishing top five every season.

    Shame when teams are broken up because of the cap tho, 2004 Bulldogs seemed to be v badly affected by it.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

    Decided that I'd put $1 on every outsider for the whole season as an experiment. Is proving to be a fruitful round.
    Stedders' Supported XI (in batting order)
    NJ Kruger, *SM Katich, LA Carseldine, MEK Hussey, Mohammad Ashraful, NT Broom, AA Noffke, +Mushfiqur Rahim, Mashrafe Mortaza, DE Bollinger, WAP Mendis.

    As a Roosters fan, I'm all for this.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Is this the end of the road of Melbourne's domination? I say yes.

    Yes, but I still thought they'd be top 4 or 6 (may well still be) but never thought id see them be so unenthusiastic and lose like that at home to a team like the Titans.

    Aye, heads will probably roll for that "effort" last night. But fair play to the Titans, proving they can win without Prince.

    I said something similar a few weeks back and was greeted with this message:
