Re: Salary Cap

If there really is a salary cap and all clubs abide by it then why can easts afford Teddy and Cronk along with their other superstars. I heard Bryan Fletcher explaining it on the grill team the other morning. They have lost a load of players that were taking up room under the cap. Kenny-Dowall, Gue...

Re: NSW Origin Team

Queensland's halves are so much better than NSW it's not even funny! I think NSW have better forwards and both states are about even in the outside backs. With cool level heads of Gutho & Cleary in the halves to steer the side around plus the passion of outside backs (mitchell, nofo, mansour, walker...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I dont understand how the rooters can afford Cronk on what should be a level playing field , however the NRL just dont get it , the general footy public dont care for the rooters ,just look at the blockbuster 25000 crowd they drew in a major final.The NRL need to have the Tigers,Souths ,Dragons ,Do...

Re: OFFICIAL: Ben Matulino to join Wests Tigers

I like the fact we will be absolutely fine through the origin period - Unless the likes of Nofo, Brooks, McQueen or Reynolds get shock selections. I really don't think it is out of the picture for Nofo to be selected. With players coming off the World Cup their injury chances rise. And with a new c...

Re: OFFICIAL: Ben Matulino to join Wests Tigers

Every Club is only Origin effected for 1 round this year with BYE's for every Club before Origin Ii.. We play the Rorters before Origin as our effected game so I guess that is good... Would we really be " effected"? No..the point is the Origin period wont have the effect it has in previous seasons ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

If RTS was to leave Souths should have a red, hot go at him. IMO they need a fullback because GI and Gagai should be their centes. Johnston is a much better winger and Cody Walker is good in the halves. 1. RTS 2. Johnston 3. Gagai 4. GI 5. B Morris? 6. Walker 7. Reynolds I don't think we should go f...

Re: Salary Cap

Thanks Geo, that is the way I thought it worked. So basically clubs that have good contacts in the big end of town have a massive advantage and of course most one team towns. Once again it highlights how uneven the current system i So why do the Roosters keep getting so much money? Cocanne this, Ki...

Re: RL World Cup 2017 Thread...

How come the Aus Aborigines don't have their team as well? Two very good reasons come to mind. 1. The World Cup is for teams from Countries not for people within a country. 2. The Aboriginals are covered in the World Cup because they are Australians. This system is working as it is promoting unity ...

thanks, many mistakes but was funny watching Farah playing half back and not getting the ball from no. 9 - for first part of game at least. Niue island only the size of a postage stamp had a decent team considering.

Re: Salary Cap

I think a points system is the way to go, not working out points for each player but so many if you play First grade, so many if you play SOO & so many if you play for your Country. You get a discount for your Juniors, Once your points are reached thats it. But then it disadvantags sides like Melbo...

Re: Salary Cap

The problem with a points system is that it's completely subjective. SALARIES are not subjective. They are what someone was willing to be paid at a given moment. Do what the NFL does - Make the Salaries of the players public - sure people on the forum might argue that it's an invasion of privacy, h...
