This season is like no other I have experienced living in the house of a diehard Rabbitohs supporter. Not only is there a consistent expectation of winning matches, but my father believes that his club, South Sydney can win the premiership.
To me this is still a foreign concept that still seems too hard to grasp.
For most of my early child hood Souths were perennially awful. So much for "Pride of the League". Seriously, they would routinely be beaten by 50-60. One year Cronulla won 42 nil over Souths and Andrew Ettingshausen scored 5 tries.
It was not such a big deal. The Sharks were good so my dad was happy for me and we would go and watch the Raiders teams of the early 90s.
Then in 1999 something weird happened. Souths did not completely suck.
They defeated Canterbury on a Sunday afternoon in round one and backed up the next week against Canberra.
All up Souths won 10 games in 1999 led by Craig Wing and Darrell
