Fully confident we'll have Thurston totally sorted: No tries, no 40/20s, no try assists, no runs....The man's a myth, I tell ya.
I'm going to cheat and say the result will be anything from Cowboys by 8 to Warriors by 6.
I sort of feel your pain, which seems to be that if you have to watch the Warriors lose, can they please lose in an exciting way...It's kind of unfair to pile the blame for that lack of excitement on The Four Coaches After Cleary. And frankly, even Cleary - actually, especially Cleary - wasn't much into the razzledazzle shit (let's not delude ourselves that Bob Temanu, as the tactic was christened by someone on here, was sexy. Effective, often but sexy? Hardly ever. Also, look how tackling's so different as are some of the other variables. Watch the 66-0 game against the Rabbitohs from 2006 and ask yourself if, crap Broncos aside, that would happen now with gang-tackling, two refs etc.
Then just let yourself remember that the style of play around 2002/2003 didn't actually get us anything. Looked sexy when it worked, but.
