    Now that the season is done and dusted for us, let's say we made the top 8. How far do you honestly think we would of made it on current forum.

    My opinion would be 2nd Elmination Final.

    Honestly if we finsihed 8th and parra 5th... we would have been knocked out first week.
    I know we beat them recently, but Eels were always suppose to make the semis and win a game at a packed bankwest stadium... this was scripted from the beginning of the season imo.

    Dogs vs Parra round 1 of the finals at a sold out bankwest would've been a game for the ages.

    I honestly think we could've beat them which probably would've given us Canberra in round two, another winnable game, but then probably faced the Roosters in the preliminary final and been knocked out.

    Our attack hasn't been great all year, but the wave of confidence we've found might have carried us a long way.

    I’d say gone week 1 the only game in the last few months where we had any type of pressure was the Cowboys game and we crumbled. I loved the finish to the season but finals are a whole new ball game and we might have scrapped past week 1 if some things went our way but definitely gone by week 2.

    I think the Bulldogs should call a Mulligan on the first few rounds and argue that our season started in Rd 3 against Tigs.

    Parra were meant to win plenty of games.. Don't mean shite when you consider the likes of the 98 prelim and the 2001 GF. Dogs v Parra at Bank west would have been an EPIC show!

    Maybe Grand Final but the Storm would still find a way to win..

    Cameron Smith as much as we hate him he's the NRLs biggest weapon on the field.

    Years of experience , the mind (and looks) of a chief tax accountant and a body that can still go toe to toe with the best nrl players in the game is why they'll win

    We would have a better chance beating the Storm rather than the back-to-back Premiers.

    honestly, we played genuine quality football the last 8-10 weeks. if we can stretch that to 15 next year, and 20 the year after? We are solid.
