For years Tricky Ricky Stuart has accused Canberra Raiders of playing possum when his thuggish rooters have been about their busniess on our boys heads.

According to a story in the SMH Jason Smith’s ability to lie very still might just have been enough o get the lads home against the silvertails.


UPDATED: Sadly the Canberra Times has news of an ugly incident after the game when dickhead fans caried on like prize wankers and got in what sounds like a fair old stink with Joel Monaghan’s family. Anyone got a story to tell on this one?

Go the fuckin RAIDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good to see the Raiders get up against a Rorters side that obviously thought the points were in the bag before they left Bondi.

As for the wankers involved in the Monaghan incident, they should have all be banned from all matches at all grounds for life, and charged and fined with assault, and then pegged to a ants nest somewhere west of yass and covered in honey.

Seriously though, a ban on the idiots would have sufficed. No-one should have to put up with that sort of behaviour. Bloody hell, we don’t want the raiders to get a reputation like the Bulldogs.

What a game.

I tell you what, if the ref hadv’e upheld his penalty against Jason Smith for conceeding the tackle, and the Rooters scored to win the game, things would’ve become very ugly indeed.

It looks like a couple of the Rooters will get suspended this week, some of their better ones too. Morley lasting to round 6 before getting suspended has to be a record.

All the Roosters supporters at the game just thought they were a shoe-in against the Raiders.

Manly this week, but Brookvale oval is a hoodoo ground for the Raiders.

No news on that incident, but good on the raiders. unbeaten and on top of the table.

But I for one am sick of the shit the team gets thru the media.

There is bugger all good news or words said bout the raiders. Any time I read or hear about the raiders it always “the other team team played badly, or were robbed by the ref”. Never is it “well played by the raiders” or ” the raiders are a class act”.

Everyone in sydney press still wrights them off as wooden spooners.
