Great post mate, only had to read the first paragraph to give this a "like."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.
I had recently been thinking about this myself.
