Looking more potent now after our spinal fusion, Robbie offers so much in attacking options, defence, kicking-especially another field goal exponent and Mbye has the pace we desperately need!

He will also bring pride and passion back to the team, priceless.

Certainly! Winning passion from 2005 - you can’t manufacture that.

Of course this whole issue will be over withing a few weeks and toes will not be so sensitive but credit where credit is due, that was an excellent article on skills of DH - have read nothing on this board comparable. As I learnt in philosophy - that even it is was Hitler that discovered that 2 plus 2 equals 4 it would still be correct.

Perhaps also read this in relation to information from other sites..

Ah Geo I'm going to get you on a technicality here. "Rumours from other forums" are the only text type referenced in S3 as you have posted. Says nothing about opinions, comments, articles, polls etc. from other forums.

Personally I actually disagree with yourself and ink on this one, I have no drama with people on this forum posting tidbits of commentary from other fans. Any opinion is valid, doesn't matter where it comes from, and people will typically only post things related to Tigers subjects anyway.

I certainly haven't observed an avalanche of copy/paste from other forums, to warrant a ban. We still have the foe button for blocking out users who write crap.

I consider this topic it similar to news article grabs - you can argue that people should just post links and have readers visit all websites everywhere. In fact, technically, copying articles from behind media paywalls and distributing on the forum is a breach of copyright.

The Warren, if I'm not mistake, forces users to sign up, which personally I'm not interested in doing, but I can appreciate other users reporting back on what other supporter groups are saying.

Lastly in my opinion, comments from other non-Tigers sources enriches our discussions, comparable to supporters of other clubs occasionally posting on here. Otherwise all we ever hear is Tigers supporters banging on about well-tread Tigers issues.

Ban away if you have to, but I disagree and don't think it causes much damage.

Depends on what Robbie can still bring to the team. if his form is consistent from the south's last two games then get the pen ready for 2019

Think it was Brent Read, he mentioned something along those lines when signing was announced yesterday.
No more plodders!

Isn't he going to be the new receptionist after he retires at the end of the year?

I think we all hoping that he can keep fit and strong to give Liddle best options. Now the whole fan base is behind him to glue the team together and even captaincy if he really pulls it off. Could be a curse again for him though.

I expect nothing but hope for the best.

Farah's game isn't based on speed so he could play for another 2 years if injury is not an issue.

Personally I actually disagree with yourself and ink on this one, I have no drama with people on this forum posting tidbits of commentary from other fans. Any opinion is valid, doesn't matter where it comes from, and people will typically only post things related to Tigers subjects anyway.

I certainly haven't observed an avalanche of copy/paste from other forums, to warrant a ban. We still have the foe button for blocking out users who write crap.

I consider this topic it similar to news article grabs - you can argue that people should just post links and have readers visit all websites everywhere. In fact, technically, copying articles from behind media paywalls and distributing on the forum is a breach of copyright.

The Warren, if I'm not mistake, forces users to sign up, which personally I'm not interested in doing, but I can appreciate other users reporting back on what other supporter groups are saying.

Lastly in my opinion, comments from other non-Tigers sources enriches our discussions, comparable to supporters of other clubs occasionally posting on here. Otherwise all we ever hear is Tigers supporters banging on about well-tread Tigers issues.

Don't read this then:

I am guessing we would find SMH, Telecrap have T&Cs for their subscribers that prohibit on-sharing of content to non-subcribers.

Anyhow you didn't directly address my comment as to why posting from other forums meets any prohibited criteria on this forum - can we post such stuff so long as it's correctly linked and credited, even if it's comments from other forum users?

Would likely cost us Liddle who is off contract at the end of next year.
