Re: Salary Cap

I get it Russ. Not fair to put Laffranchi in a list of dodgy persons when he wasn't convicted of anything. It's like saying Brett Stewart is a crook even though he was exonerated. Brett Stewart...wouldn't trust him with my daughter or my ATM pin number....the Guy just looks dodgy...and one of those...

Re: NSW Origin Team

No Fifita - we do want to give ourselves a chance. You are kidding. He won our game 1 and while there was some Lorry Daly argument with him, we don't know if this is a storm in a tea cup or a real objection. Queensland don't Naval gaze like this at a loss. Yes identify the real problems, don't iden...

Re: Salary Cap

So for me it boils down to a couple of options; $$ Salary Cap/TPA's - not overly complicated but hardly a level playing field club Vs club. Points Cap - Complicated but fairer for club Vs club. So for me, it's a no-brainer, the points system would be the way to go. Yes, it's been seen as being subj...

Re: Wests Tigers confirm 2018 home game allocation

Time to say 4 - LO, 4 at Campbelltown and any regional games can come from the ANZ quota.

Our membership and our turf are more important.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Clearly had more than half the cap to get who he wanted for his first full season and has had the majority of a season to start molding the players that are already here. If they don't perform, then other than himself there are very few places or people to point blame at. Totally agreed. Just, he w...

Re: 2018 Fearless predictions.

Hard to see how the Storm don't win again next year. They're on another level. No Cronk? No worries, they'll find someone else. Just like they replaced Slater when he was injured. It's easy to see how they won this year... After screwing up majorly against the sharks in 16 the desire and hunger was...

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.

Pascoe & Go said 'as an organisation, not playing finals football is not an option'. If we dont make the Top 8 in 2018, someone needs to be put on the chopping bloke regardless of the never-ending excuses and retric of 'next year' Come on man, we finally have a good complete management team and coa...

Lets do a twilight zone one. 1. Premiership Winner - Raiders, Stewart works it out for once. 2. Wooden Spoon - Roosters, finally the Salary cap auditors catch up too them when they discover Mitchell Pierce being donated a Tibetan Mastiff outside the cap. 3.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

We really need a marquee singing to give us that edge next year. I don't see that happening but would be good if we snare someone decent before next year Think Big. We have not seen this team play. We get someone Marquee like Jaryd Hayne we could end up like the Titans! Let this team settle, player...

Re: Police reportedly called to Blake Ferguson's home

I actually feel sorry for Fergo in this instance. You try and do the right thing, and also try to please an old mate, but when you give an inch they take a mile. I wouldn't be so quick to feel sympathetic to Ferguson. 3am house calls from a guy whose a known coke supplier should ring a few alarm be...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

Look at Michael Lichaa the last couple of weeks when he was told he didn't have a contract. He came out of his shell and was the catalyst of their 3 game winning streak. Des had them on leashes. I think Reynolds will have a new lease of life next year. I still wouldn't rule out him being appointed ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Whispers seem to be getting a bit louder of Cronk to the Roosters. If so you would have to think Pearce exits the place and we would be a real chance. Pearce would not come to our mob, he would only go to a so called glamour club. He would be a good buy for us,good kicking game and can tackle....bu...

Can someone explain the Hayne TPA? As I understand it webjet or a similar company would kick in $500,000 for Hayne to feature in their adds, but only if he signed with the Gold Coast Titans? Look I get it. Were going to get superstars. Superstars will get corporate sponsorships and that's natural, i...

Re: Heartland needs love

As someone said above, St George have far fewer problems wandering. 6/6 split works fine. 3 games at Campbelltown is a joke! a total Joke. Campbelltown fans should not have to travel 1.5 hours to their "home ground". We need to ditch ANZ or Leichhardt oval and in my view it should be ANZ. We don't o...
