Raiders reduced to speed bumps in the Rabbitohs fairytale journey. Canberra 16, Souths 38

By johnboy - 16 September 2012 23

Foxsports has the grim tidings from last night’s thrashing of the Raiders:

South Sydney are one step away from a first grand final appearance in 41 years after brushing aside Canberra 38-16 in Saturday’s NRL semi-final at ANZ Stadium.

Rookie halfback Adam Reynolds was the star of the show for the Rabbitohs, scoring a try and kicking seven goals on his way to becoming only the second player in the club’s history to chalk up more than 200 points in a season.

Eric Simms was the last player to record that feat in 1970 – the year the Rabbitohs won the 19th of their 20 premierships – and they must now beat Canterbury next Saturday if they are to add to that tally.

The win was Souths’ first finals victory in 25 years.

(Note how the Raiders are irrelevant to the narrative)

That’s it for Raiders Fever (TM) 2012, hope you enjoyed the ride.

Well done Raiders for getting this far, 7 weeks ago there was talk of the spoon and the gallows were being prepared for the coach.

The surprising thing is that Souths still hold the record for winning the most premierships even though their last Grand Final win was in 1971. Despite the passage of 41 years since then – and things like the Winfield Cup, Optus Cup, Telstra Cup and Super League – no other team has been able to beat that record.

Disappointed but not really surprised. Still, to get there from where they were was a pretty decent effort.

No, they’ve done this before. It would have been ‘decent’ if they’d won. And a miracle!

It was a brilliant turn around to the season and I couldn’t be prouder, but it is all for nought if they don’t pick up next season where they left off.

Oh no! A group of thoroughly dull individuals who live somewhat near me lost at game of hand egg against another group of meatheads from slightly further away. Shock! Horror! My world is collapsing.

I’m glad you took the time out of your presumably busy day to enlighten us all with that wonderfully insightful post.

Remember how you denied my accusations of pretentiousness and snobbery? Well I just wanted to highlight post as evidence for my point. I don’t give 2 dingoes farts about footy either, but unlike you I don’t think this is evidence of my intellectual superiority over the proles.

They didn’t have any problem giving your Sharks a good thrashing a week previously, despite epic whinging from Paul Gallen. Is that 45 years now without a title?

Where did I belittle “the proles”? The only people I belittled here were football players, and even then I only called them uninteresting meat heads, which is hardly the height of pretentious snobbery, more like stating the bleeding obvious really.

I don’t think I am “intellectually superior” to anyone, even football players. Intelligence isn’t a linear scale, it isn’t a score that can be beaten. A mechanic has one kind of intelligence, a doctor has another, to compare the two is oranges to apples. There may be some overlapping mental skills between various kinds of intellect, but testing only a subset of skills will never provide an objective measurement of intellect.

No, I called them uninteresting, not because they themselves incapable of piquing interest, but because I am uninterested in their interests.

Why bother writing at all? Because other responses have a tendency to lend undue import to these cavortings, it seems prudent to display a proportional level of distaste, if only to balance the discussion.

Don’t play coy, your post was patronising with undertones of unwarranted smugness, and I doubt I’m the only one here who thinks so.

It’s been 24 hours, and I haven’t seen a single post calling for the sacking of the coach, the board, the equipment manager, etc.

Raiders supporters, as much as you might have hated him earlier this season, I believe you could do well to keep Furner for another couple of years.
