Yep, we're a loyal bunch of Blues supporters

WITH the State of Origin decider taking place tomorrow, we thought we'd test your Blue loyalty yesterday with a somewhat biased State of Origin quiz.

At the time of writing this story, of the 300-plus votes, 74% said the Maroons are overrated, banana/rule benders who are happy to claim great footballers south of the border.

A further 74% also, very insightfully, voted the Blues as a generous lot of smart fellows who only fight when need and are not grubby.

Eighty-three percent said watching the Blues makes them feel proud - even if they lose again.

Advice to Nate Myles from 72% of the voters: take a chill pill and an aspirin and Paul Gallen's advice.

According to 55% of respondents, Maroon supporters in Sydney will not drown out or passionate Blatchy's Blues.

Will New South Wales end Queensland's seven-year dominance? The answer: Oath yeah. They'll do it for Paul Gallen (83%).

Tommy Raudonikis and Paul Gallen should both…be immortalised in bronze statues outside ANZ Stadium, said 76% of voters.

Queenslanders are jealous of New South Wales because its players have plenty of heart and courage, according to 85% of those who participated in the poll. The remaining 15% said it is because our players get away with testing the rules.

Sydney is the envy of international tourists the world over (69%) as opposed to a city that runs second to Brisbane when it comes to Origin fever (30%).

And finally, 73% of voters said if the Blues lose, New South Welshmen have heaps of other cool things to do in our great state.
