    Graham Murray would've been proud of the team. He got the team to the finals for the first time in 04, and first decider in 05. He was one who said Green could take the team all the way. Glad Green picked and stuck with Kyle Feldt too. After the shit that was the 08-10 era team and the Neil Henry years that yielded only brief finals campaigns I was glad to see what Green brought to the team.

    I know it's said a lot but I really do believe that the Cows are a good chance of going back to back. Unlike Souths and most premiers, the entire top 17 have been retained for next season. Add into that the youth of the side and the fact that the U20's and Reserve grade sides did well and there's good depth there. It's to the point where I'm actually not sure how some of the quality coming through is going to get into the side.

    There's no way they get the same luck with injuries next year.

    Just thinking about it I think only the Cowboys and Sharks would've been the only 2 sides from the top 8 who didn't have injuries to key players in their respective squads heading into the finals series.

    And I don't think they were that far ahead of the rest this year, if at all.
  4. Paddy P Orr

    I see what you mean. Usually the Cowboys have a horrid injury toll post Origin.

    Lot of things in the way of luck went our way this year but I'll take it.

    Hoping the luck on that front will keep up next year.

    Rumor is Coote will be back in NSW next season.

    :laugh:....Just fucking :laugh: Said the same about the Roosters and their dream run. Unsurprisingly they haven't made a GF since.

    They've won more H&A games than any other team, scored more points in the H&A season than any other team, conceded less points than any other team in the H&A season over the past 36 months. Dream draw or no dream draw.

    You don't just do denial brilliantly it defines you. Still to this day you think you had validity in your points.

    Every team needs a bit of luck on their way to a premiership, we certainly had ours in having a full squad to pick from on GF day. No denying that.

    I can understand the argument but if you don't win the premiership it just doesn't matter.

    Early in the finals someone called Easts and Brisbane the best 2 teams comfortably. I said Cowboys were because they quite obviously have another gear.
  10. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    You had luck getting 5 home games out of 6 weeks. To this day you have not made a single contrite statement about that extraordinary advantage. Talk about denial. And then you have the gall to highlight other teams having 'dream runs.'

    what the actual fuck?

    I thought the extra gear the Cowboys found was Matt Scott hitting form, he was just about the player of the finals series IMO.

    I don't think we ever really saw them hit that next gear you're alluding to. Especially in the GF when the game was there for the taking for nearly the whole last half hour of play.

    Which is probably a concerning sign for other sides, more than anything else....
  12. Julian BJ Taylor

    I don't really disagree with that. But this was said after NQ lost without Morgan, who is huge.

    I'd add the whole middle third regaining form was probably that extra gear. When they had a poor run after Origin I thought they were all quiet,.
  13. Paddy P Orr

    Have to agree with you. I still think the Cowboys can be a far better team in performance despite winning the comp.
  14. Magic AJ Parker

    Fuck me does 2013 still haunt you that bad?

    Roosters have won the MP 3 years in a row, a rather uncelebrated and seemingly immaterial achievement but undeniable proof that the Roosters didn't just fluke it in 2013 by getting a good run.

    Now get over it, the conversation got boring.... 2 years ago.
  15. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    It got boring when you applied, as you do with everything that relates to the Roosters, your silly double standards. At least you've stopped trying to deny it. That's a start I guess.
  16. Ged GEC King

    I really can't see the Cowboys releasing him. He's too much of a vital cog to the side. 2017 I can see him gone but not while he's under contract.
  17. Paddy P Orr

    Tamou's quick play the ball an understated part of the game that allowed JT to have the space for that field goal.

    Saw this on twitter. Pretty cringeworthy that anyone would do this, tbh.

    Didn't need the smaller logo either, just needed the bigger one re-doing to match. But can't understand the names that's what makes it worse
