After years of supporting Queensland, I'm backing New South Wales again.

My logic:
Before the Warriors, I supported the Raiders so supported the Origin team with the highest number of Raiders players. That was invariably New South Wales.
When Kevin Campion was picked for Queensland, I switched allegiance and even when no Warriors player was picked, stuck with them.
Had divided loyalties when Lillyman played for Queensland and Hoffman played for New South Wales.
Now there's no Warriors players being picked and the "back Queensland because they're the only team to pick a Warriors player" rule no longer applies, I'm back to the Canberra logic...

well its logic, i'm not saying its good logic, but it follows a process.

Is the stir because of the advertising? Smart marketing advertising directly in the players faces. History says many of them will have to lawyer up at some point in their careers ;)
Was more about the need for a ‘clash jersey’ when the teams won’t ever clash. Seen as a money grab and ‘against tradition’ pissed off a few of the purests when it was released, some also questioning using an unrecognised design while trying to gain a profile in Perth

In NSW they like to mock Queenslanders by claiming they are a bunch of hillbillies, but I guess this shows that fully functioning brains might not be too common in NSW.

Some of the indigenous players will not be singing the Aussie National anthem tonight, as they say it excludes them.
Its there form of protest.

Probably the right call as it didn’t look quite right but big call to overturn it from the onfield call though
