    Super League War podcast

    Sorry if this is already recommended here somewhere, but I just started the Rugby League Digest podcast series about the Super League War. Fantastic non-partisan insight into the whole thing. Starts off with the introduction of the Broncos to the comp and how that accelerated things. As I was a...

    Single Malt Whisky (It's not spelt Whiskey in Scotland)

    Since this is the season we all turn to drinking. Let’s talk whisky. I’ve only just started helping myself to the hubby’s stash this year, but have developed quite a taste for it. I don’t know much about the nose and the after taste and whatever the snobs talk about at whisky club, but I know...

    Schadenfreude

    As Mr 8 sat up last night and cheered the Storm losing (his best mate is a typical Storm fan, so of course my boy death rides them in the Aussie mateship way, plus I'm his mother so he knows that they're pure evil) I realised that schadenfreude is all we have this year to bring us joy. Since the...

    Spam....constant spam

    Anyone get constant spam? Winning woollies vouchers or offers for Bitcoin etc? Every day I get at least 5-10 in my work inbox. I block and block and block and set up rules, and the bots continue to create new accounts and spam me. HTF do I get them to stop?

    The Refs - Have a Whinge and Solve Their Many Problems

    We should have a refs thread. I would like to see 1 ref, and he (or she!) makes the decisions. I can live with an incorrect call in the run of play. Humans make mistakes, we move on and get over it. I can NOT handle the video refs with all the time in the world and all the replays getting it...

    Media v Broncos & Bennett

    It's getting really tiresome. I'm sure it gets plenty of clicks because all of the other clubs fans combined hate us like we're Manly. But I can't figure out why, we haven't won a premiership in over 10 years ffs, we are hardly the pinnacle of success these days. Anyway, it's just getting...

    NFL 2017 Discussion

    Hey @Clintos who knew the free agency season was going to be as exciting as the season. If we can re-sign Hightower and Butler we have an even better team than 2016. I wouldn't mind keeping Jimmy G, but would laugh if we can some how get the first overall pick from Cleveland for him.

    A new Broncos fan is born/stories of your conversion

    So here's a touching story about my 12 year old nephew "Z's" conversion to the great game of Rugby League and the Brisbane Broncos. A year ago September my hubby's brother passed away suddenly leaving behind 4 kids aged 6-11 and a wife. Anyway, my brother in law and wife hated footy, and his...

    Would Cam Smith, JT, Slater and Co been as good.....

    Here's an interesting hypothetical I've been thinking about lately. Do Cameron Smith, Johnathan Thurston, Billy Slater, and to a lesser extent Darren Lockyer (because he was already super awesome) become as good as they are if they don't play together in this period of origin? Say if Cameron...

    Nashy Morkel ningnangnong / All other tech geeks. I need to upgrade my home business PC. Looking at getting an All-In-One purely as a space saving alternative to a desk top.

    If this forum was in charge of the Broncos

    Ive been lurking the forums a lot more often of late, and I feel that since my regular days we've gotten a lot more negative. Probably the premiership drought is taking it's toll. Anyway, if we were in charge this is what would happen: we would have no coach; the one we've got is rubbish, the...

    Manly Diving Club

    Manly players MUST be coached to stay down when they get a clip to the head. I started to notice it last year in the run to and through the finals that they seemed to take a dive. And it's continued on this year - it's every single player staying down, and not just staying down but playing...

    Round 1 - Eels vs Broncos - Build Up Thread (Official Team pg 7)

    So has anyone else heard the rumour that Cricket Australia have petitioned Channel 9 to flick this game in order to play the T20 match? :sigh: The amount of respect Channel 9 shows league it wouldn't surprise me if they did play the T20 match, as more "Australians" would watch it. :rolleyes:

    Breeding

    If I am making even more scatter-brained remarks than usual that's because I'm preggers....with twins, and my brain has already shrunk to the size of a pea. In total denial! Haven't faced up to facts yey. Actually I haven't eaten for 2 months and done nothing but puke so I'm not really enjoying...

    Qld Politics

    At the moment there's a lot of discussion about federal politics, which is fair enough. But actually, QLD will be going to an election in the near future. Time to start thinking about who we want to lead our State out of the sludge. Looking forward to seeing the LNP get their act together and...
