The sooner every player at Melbourne Storm realises that is ALL the membership base cares about...the better
I'd argue that. For a lot of us the Shield is actually more important than the Trophy.
The JJ Guiltinan Shield is for the team that was most consistent across 26 rounds - win that and you are the best team all year.
The Provan Summons trophy is for the best team on the day, sure it's nice and I party as hard as anyone when we win one - but as we have seen, if you have a bad day (2008), or things don't quite go right on the day (2016) you can fall short. Then there's games that you are just reffed out of (Paul Simpkins you cockwomble)!
