Re: NRL agrees to review third-party agreements in a bid to end salary cap rorting

I just think it's time to stop focusing on why things might be difficult to do and work toward how we can make good things happen. You could say exactly the same thing about the current salary cap and TPAs. I'm not saying you're completely wrong, I just think the points system is fraught with dange...

Re: NRL agrees to review third-party agreements in a bid to end salary cap rorting

The other option is player ratings/values. Transparent, based on facts and no restraint of trade etc. Absolutely barra. Ive said it before a few times on this forum. Point value per player. Clubs have a quota they can fill up too. No restriction on what players can earn and it spreads the talent. P...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Merrin is a useless fat overrated softy, never did anything for the dragons but was always talked up in the press, has had a couple of decent hit ups at panthers but not many - pass! I would chase Murdock Masilla - he was awesome in the World Cup (always had so much potential early on). I was calli...

Re: NRL agrees to review third-party agreements in a bid to end salary cap rorting

The champion data of the salary cap is "no consecutive premiers in the NRL era". What is interesting beyond that is only 7 unique teams have played consecutive GFs (Roosters 02-03, Roosters 03-04, Melb 06-07, Melb 07-08, Manly 07-08, Melb 08-09, Melb 16-17), with only 3 clubs having achieved it at a...

It's even been 10 years since a club played in back to back Grand Finals.
I agree with your post generally, but Melbourne just played BTB GFs 2016-2017.

Re: TAB NRL 2018 odds

The people who set these boards don’t do it with their hearts, they do it by looking at each team and ranking them. Okay every year there are bolters and crashers, but If I was setting a board I would also have them close to the bottom, when you compare our squad with most others it falls behind th...

Re: TAB NRL 2018 odds

I love long odds. They are just an opinion, a guess, about making money. If you think it's wrong, get on it. Best thing in the world for a punter is to see odds you strongly disagree with. Worst thing would be to see Tigers at middling odds like $21, hardly worth the effort but not strong enough to ...

Re: Kent on Hayne

Everything you have written is as you have previously said " subjective". No argument, most things on this forum are subjective. Point being there are two hypotheses for why Hayne is reportedly on less money at Parramatta next year. One of those is a conspiracy theory involving multiple agencies, t...

Re: Kent on Hayne

Far out this sort of thing fires me up. I’m so sick of the inequity in the NRL. The draw is a joke, third party agreements are a joke, the salary cap is rorted, some teams are refereed differently to others....... and those charged with the responsibility to govern couldn’t grow a choko vine over a...

Sorry, did anyone expect a top-quality signing in November to fill spot #29 in our roster? Expectations people.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I reckon Knights have done alright, not great. Ese'ese is a goer but in a strong Broncos pack. Guerra is very definitely on the downhill of his career, though he can still offer plenty of experience, though I personally doubt the pay packet. Moga is hot and cold. This will be his 4th club in 6 years...

Re: Mitchell Pearce

I imagine there's a great deal of schadenfraude being enjoyed by the old Wests fans here. I don't follow. Manly missing out after shedding a player to accommodate him. When did we do this? Was this why we shedded Hodgo all those years ago? Did we shed someone to go for Brent Kite? I vaguely remembe...
