    When I use to live in canberra - we were out one night at this bar called the lighthouse for uni night. Fensom was there, he had played prob a couple of seasons of first grade by then. My mate (a good looking dude) was chatting up this chick for ages. Was hooking up with her, she was keen as. Fensom literally came over and said to her, "hey want to come home with me", and she was like, sure. Got up and left with him.

    Was fucking amazing, fensom is the most normal average looking bloke you will ever see - but the footy player star power got her and she left.

    Felt sorry for him seeing that, poor bloke!!! Was good when he was pumping the crowd up tho and the cows box was all laughing.

    Was the worst GF I have seen from an entertaining game point of view. Just an average NRL game really.

    Melbourne were never going to lose that, and never even remotely looked like they were in trouble.

    Yeah, poor game, but how good are the big three. Seeing them put on that play late in the game was worth the viewing alone for mine.

    like many, especially in NSW i have often cheered against the storm in any big game but i kinda went into the game thinking their dominant season deserved a title and i was actually fairly happy for them, i think this year, i got past the dislike and just had to appreciate how good they were, i also enjoy the fact that they also play some really good footy these days, the cap cheating teams were a bore to watch at times, this team still does all the smart, grinding stuff but also plays some really entertaining footy.

    the big 3 are obviously awesome but their squad outside of those players has never been better, 1-17 they were just so much better then everyone else and it showed all year

    I was ready to forgive and forget for all the reasons you say until they knocked the Broncos out. After that game though every bandwagon fan I know who jumped on the Storm train in their 20's became unbearable on social media while also showing how ignorant they are, so I was definitely hoping (though not expecting) they lose the GF.

    About the only Melbourne fan I personally know who I could excuse for changing sides is a guy I know who followed the Bears, and after they were kicked out didn't follow anyone for a while then decided to get on the Storm as they were the newest team.
