    Bloody Hell.

    If you are your family are impacted, thoughts and prayers and stay safe.

    Can't give enough kudos to the firefighters and volunteers.

    Fair dinkum modern day real life heroes.

    PS. avoid political comments here if possible. Another time.
    To our fans we tell you
    If you have not been told
    We play this game for all of us
    We play it from the soul!

    Yeah, fire season seems to be starting earlier and going longer. Bad wind conditions tonight too apparently. Thoughts are with the fireys and anyone affected, even if they don't support the Roosters.

      And a good time to remember that the footballers we all
      love so much are not heroes.

        Our thoughts and prayers are with those suffering and those fighting the fires

          Here here, well said everyone. I fully echo those sentiments. Our RFS volunteers are truly some of our unsung heroes. It is times like these that things really get put into perspective. Following the footy is great, of course, but it is important occasionally to take stock of some of those things that really matter in life. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those impacted in NSW and QLD recently and in the days, weeks and months ahead.

          Some people believe supporting the Roosters
          is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed
          with that attitude. I can assure you it is
          much, much more important than that.
