Move the comp to Melbourne? Could be a last option.

Welp, that's fucked. Lets hope this high school situation doesn't spiral out of control like NSW did.

Yeah the poor bugger, I hope he puts himself first and looks after himself.

Hasnt really helped him he's not got any family around. because of this bubble stuff. Think he could just do with a break tbh.

Jai Arrow split with his GF beforehand.

Api Koroisau's wife is standing by her man.
Api messed up in this situation, but I'm always worried about his wellbeing.

I'm not sure how well known it is but back in 2014 around the time he won a premiership he lost his partner to suicide. There was all these reports of erratic behaviour from Api and the story only came out years later. It sort of explained why the clubs and the media were taking a soft approach.

Sad, but it doesn't excuse him cheating on this wife several times.

No one gave a shit about Jai Arrow's mental health, some of the media were hyenas.

The record books are going to remember this year’s Melbourne side as the most dominant in NRL history but imo they’re not even the best Storm side in history. Not even in the top 3 imo.

To me, they’ve managed to keep chugging along, maintaining their high standards while a good portion of the rest of the competition has deteriorated in a massive way.

imo the dominance we’re seeing from this current Storm side is a manifestation of the systems and processes that the Storm have ingrained over the past 15+ years. It’s almost like a golfer who has put in so much quality practise over such a long time that their swing is able to hold up during a hurricane.

The fact that pretty much no other team in the NRL has what the Storm has in this respect, has only served to widen the gap in performance week to week during a time when there are a lot of distractions and a lot of reasons for teams and players to perform sub-optimally.
