And again i point the example of 2005 Newcastle out, they were the best wooden-spooners ever. Would it have been fair to relegate a club that, even today, is financially fucked but not too bad on field?
League fans are fickle? The Rabbitohs example seems to contradict that statement. But I can't say I know much about league fans really. Certainly just from living around them, I can tell AFL fans take this thing to be just about a religion and teams would survive relegation - as long as their supporters choose life over suicide in any case.

And since Newcastle didn't perform, I'd say it would've been fair to relegate them. Spend some time rebuilding their core base and financial bottom line in the lower league and use the skill they have to get back to the top.

And bring you to the horse

My lovely horse you're a pony no

Running around with a man on your back
Like a train in the night
Like a train in the....hold on, i can do this...

Niiiiiiiiiiiight.


That's so going in my DI playlist.

Maybe not the Rabbitohs as much, but most teams, especially around Sydney have pretty fickle fanbases.

Heritage rounds are a cool idea, that's for sure.

Hope the Super 14/16/291 introduces it at some point down the track.

The heritage jersey pwns the Cowboys current jersey.

History lesson: It's a North Queensland Representative strip, from when North Queensland beat the touring Great Britain side in the 1960s.

Why the fuck is our defence impossible to penetrate at home, yet acts like a broken fucking sieve away?
