All good, everyone makes the odd mistake.

Re: Cooper Cronk confirms he will play on with a Sydney club in season 2018

Cameron, you are entitled to your opinion.

But I don't think that is what this is. I think this is a deliberate attempt to upset some long standing members of this message board by posting unsubstantiated rubbish. And that's called trolling.

Consider this a formal warning.

Re: The race to be our half back is on

I think based off his efforts last year Croft gets the nod but I won’t be totally disappointed if he is eased in, I like what I saw from Riley Jacks, we don’t need a dominant #7 as I believe Smith and Slater and to a lesser extent Munster will be the masterminds behind our attack in 2018, I think o...

Clifford Manua, Willie Isa and Joel Romelo all spring to mind.

For value to the club, Chris Walker and Willie Leyshon.

Storm B (no limit to amount of games)
1. Matt Duffie (had no other options really since we’ve only had two fullbacks)

Umm, not heard of a bloke called Munster?
I guess he only played one and a half seasons there...

Re: World Club Challenge

Just an over-hyped preseason game. For it to have any significance it needs to be played by the same teams soon after the Grand Finals. Superbowl works (in fact it is the biggest sporting event in the US). If the AFC and NFC winners played a preseason game the next year no one would give a damn. In ...

Re: Cooper Cronk confirms he will play on with a Sydney club in season 2018

There have been whispers Smith and Cronk’s relationship has been icy since the star half announced he was shooting through to Sydney for love ... and the Roosters. I think there is something to that tbh. It is quite odd that seemingly both Smith and Slater were not there... Family holiday is a cop ...

Re: Team of 20 Years

Lazarus is a tough one - only played 44 games but was a premiership captain, set the club culture up and was one of the great players of his era. I guess the reason he doesn't vet picked by everyone is the short Storm career but certainly has to be in the discussion. I think part of the problem is ...

Nope. A team certainly but not a bench spot. We have had plenty of players more versatile - Noddy was purely a halfback

Re: Team of 20 Years

Yeah, you're right. The source I had to hand said DJ at 11, but I just dug around on the Storm site and they have Hoff and Mooks as back rowers and DJ on the bench. https://web.archive.org/web/20080822090855/http://www.melbournestorm.com.au/default.asp?sec=15&ssec=8

Re: Team of 20 Years

What's the opinion though of the storm team of the decade selected back in 2007. Surely if you didn't make that team at the time, like Robbie Ross, then you can't possibly be considered 10 years later to make the 20 year team, even on the bench Depends on your opinion of the selections then. For ex...

Re: Team of 20 Years

MG was a winger first and foremost and a utility second. Picking him at 14 would be a disservice to him and keep a genuine bench utility from earning a spot. Hinchy deserves the 14 We're jumping ahead a bit but I'd have Danny at 14. He was invaluable to us in the early years. Hinchy for Storm A 13'...
