I watched the Warriors vs Melbourne game on Wed night. First league game I have watched in years.
I was really bored and kinda annoyed with how much time was spent trying to milk penalties? Is that normal? Also is Johnson just massively overated? Or more likely am I just ignorant of what he does?
Not bashing league, this is a thread for people who enjoy it... not a debate about how good it is. Not going to derail, but just wanted to ask these questions.
People trying to milk penalties - yes, all the time. If the tip of a defenders little finger brushes the ball carriers chin, they'll lie down and have and sook about it until the ref blows a penalty, then hey presto I'm right as rain now.
Johnson overrated, yes. He has some magical touches which will win a game every now and then, but consistently steering the team around the park and consistently doing the basics well, no way José.
Thanks much appreciated. I am not really a Warriors fan at all. But maybe the ANZAC day thing motivated me... I was really wanting to win that game. I was continually nervous about them conceding a penalty. .. basically every tackle! More nervous about that than what the storm were doing.
