“Why are the Melbourne Storm so damn dull? I don’t mean their play or the personalities of their players or coach, as they generally seem a good bunch. I mean that somehow, despite all their success, they are league’s answer to former world No.1 in women’s tennis Lindsay Davenport – highly accomplished, with a mantelpiece groaning under the weight of trophies, but no one particularly cares.”

Peter FitzSimons.  Daily Telegraph reader Ian Robinson of Sydney does care – enough to declare that the Storm should be kicked out of the game altogether:

“The Melbourne Storm is a blight upon the game and should be kicked out. They have no fan base, they flaunt the rules and play a dirty cowardly game. Kick them out of the game.”

(Surely he meant “flout” the rules?)
