“I’m just happy that the Eels are in the top 8. I’ve been a supporter since 1980 and even since I moved to Canberra as a child. I remember walking through Carlingford with the Eels flag flying when Parramatta played the Bulldogs in the finals (1984/85?)
I still don’t believe the Raiders should even be in the competition – much to hubby’s dismay.
What can I say? I’m a Sydney girl at heart.

Besides, the “Faders” shouldn’t be in the top 8. They’re a crap team who don’t deserve to have a stadium done up for them through the tax payers of the ACT.
Go the Eels!
Shouldn’t be in the comp? Shouldn’t be in the top eight?
Yes, the Raiders may not have the million dollar glamour boys of the other teams, but one thing they can do is win.
And they’ve got eigth place sewn up. Not bad for a team that everyone said would come last this season. Guess they were all very very wrong hey?
