Some of you might have missed this.
Last week, FoxSports released some 'bold predictions' for 2021.
I think there was 20 of them.
There was some decent content in there, but some of them were laughable.
One of them was a prediction that the Blues would beat the Maroons in the State of Origin 3-0 next year, don't think so.
Another was that the Titans would miss the finals - can't see it happening, you've got to like what you see from the Gold Coast at the moment.
But there were others that made sense, for instance Harry Grant would beat Damien Cook for the Kangaroos #9 jersey or the fact that the Sharks might get the spoon.
Those things I agree with.
But the most ridiculous one was that the Melbourne Storm would miss the Top 4.
Ya kidding aren't ya?
Just a couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article in which we thought the Storm paying $1.90 to make the Top 4 was a great bet. If you haven't had the pleasure, you can read about that here.
So I am here to call out FoxSports and the people that put together that bold / shit house prediction.
Sure, the Storm likely lose the GOAT, Cameron Smith. But have you seen the likely spine?
Papenhuyzen, Munster, Hughes & Grant.
The Storm have been in the Top 4 in 9 of the last 10 seasons. Yes they lose Smith and Tino Fa'asuamaleaui - but we all thought they were done when the likes of Slater, Inglis and Cronk left.
If anything, they probably got better.
Same thing will happen again.
Papenhuyzen, the Clive Churchill Medalist will be better again in 2021 and he'll challenge James Tedesco for the Blues #1 jersey. Cameron Munster is the best in the game right now, yes, I repeat, he's simply the best, while Harry Grant is young and bloody good.
Storm won't make the Top 4 - how much you been drinking FoxSports?
They'll be there - $1.90 - I like it.
