If you’ve only ever driven a BMW convertible would you ever consider a Kia as your next car...?

It's not only Politis,
Mark Bouris is a mad supporter of the Chooks. And there's another Multi who supports them as well( can't remember name)
Tpa's aren't a problem to them. And they can't be banned because that's how the Nrl get around the problems that the Cap could produce.
While I agree that they're a pain, if the TPAs were banned, the Cap would go almost straight away. With players taking it to court.
Then it really would be the haves and the have nots , with the have nots struggling to even keep the haves in sight

In that case you could not afford the BMW in the first place....two things drivers of prestige cars dont worry about....cost of petrol and cost to service their car

Lebron James is the Kia ambassador plus his own car is a Kia, and he loves them.
The Kia Cerato sedan from 2013 onwards are every bit as good as an Audi. In fact the bloke that designed the Audi now designs the Kia. Great cars! I know, I own 2 😊

Nrl is a joke.....seriously how can we compete? These tpa's are killing the game.
They intend to keep Pearce too, by the way. And they most likely will. Makes me sick! There are no hard times for this club, only always good fortune.

Just makes you feel sick doesn't it. Adding Tedesco and Cronk to a side already stacked with internationals and origin players is an absolute joke. There's something very rotten going on in our game and if we don't fix it we may as well just switch to the premier league, where only the rich clubs can win the comp each year.

Three things. Cost of the fines they pay for ignoring road and parking rules

The pressures on them to win the 2018 premiership, theyve recruited 50% of an origin spine while keeping an origin half (time will tell here)

When Cronk has a crap year next year, he will develop a career ending injury with his 2019 salary paid in full, and not counting to the roosters cap

Cronk has set himself up for the next 5-8 years, look good luck to Cronk, who would knock back the chance to earn another $2M in the twilight of their career, before spending the next 5 or so years in the media...

I'm not so sold on Cronk as a great halfback....he was fortunate to play in a side that contained the best players in 2 other key positions....he has that again at the roosters so it will be interesting how it all plays out in 2018....But seriously its a joke how the Roosters, Broncos and to a lesser extent the Storm can afford their sides

It'll be a smooth transition.

From rorters to rorters.

He should feel at home.

The Chooks have been poaching the best talent in the game for years and for most of us outside Bondi they seem to be playing by a different set of rules, but okay they may finish top five most years, but they have seldom converted all the money into silver ware.

Takes a lot more than money and the best players to win a comp.....although it helps

They have to be raging favourites to win the comp next year. I hope they fail and get busted rorting the cap.

If the reported $2 mil for 2 years by Fox is correct than
THERE NEEDS TO BE AN INVESTIGATION
and the NRL needs to come out and say how the Rorters can fit him under the Salary Sombrero in 2018
This should make it quite difficult for them to deal with there off contracts stars for 2018 Mitchell ,Takie what ever his name is and others bring on 1st November

I am sure I mentioned previously that my mates were at city v country this year and Ian Schubert was on the turps saying that they know the broncos and roosters are guilty but can't find evidence to launch a case (or the NRL blocks those investigations)

I rate Cronk highly and can't understand any rugby league fan calling him a myth.

Played in 7 grand finals for 4 wins. Played over 300 games and one of the reason QLD & Aust have dominated. Not an imortal but next level down

I would perfer him to retire or play part time for the Storm than for another club.

If he goes to chooks and Pearce leaves then the fallout will outweight his class.

Will miss watching the greatest spine in league history go around week in week out.
The "myth" thing is probably due to the fact that he was a playmaker in the biggest Grand Final slaughter in history...40-0. His sinews weren't all in sync that day unfortunately.
He is a decent player, average in all aspects apart from his kicking game which is above average. No chance he would of gone to a struggling club where his flaws would of been exposed. Good luck to him.
You would think with Rushton on the other side of the bed he would have been content to hang up the boots and spend his days wandering his mansion in a dressing gown....Hef style.
