Its taking the no one is better than anyone else mantra the club is trying to shove down our throats to the extreme. Why stop at 5, why not pick 17? Maybe pick a different captain each week. 5 captains makes a mockery of the role and totally devalues it.
It is what it is.
Now that we have named 28 captains, how must the other 2 blokes in the top 30 feel? Plenty of fellas to plan the weekday lunches it seems, Heighno left massive shoes to fill.........

Lawrence or Benji are two obvious captains tha t spring to mind , but neither are guaranteed first grade selection, we may find Packer and Taylor as co captains on most occasions

Is this NRL or under 7's ?

Will Cleary be handing out lollies at half time ?

What a joke .

I think its a great idea - should of had more - you could have the whole team to approach the ref to question his decision - i can see a Sparticus moment -

Ref : who is the captain
Lawrence : I am captain
Packer I am captain
Taylor : I am captain
Reynolds : I am captain
Marshall : I am captain

Does anyone else get the feeling Cleary is lying in bed at night thinking "Benji is looking like our best half, Benji looks to be our best leader, what the hell do i do with this"?

Its my gut feeliing that Benji is putting great pressure on Ivan. And if the rumour is true that Reynolds will play some hooker this weekend, then its not out of the question that this is indeed unfolding.

Just a feeling.

Too many old fashioned old farts on this thread I see. I honestly cant see a proboem with this and think it could really work to our advantage. Also I cab see why you coyldbt name any of them individually.

Lawrence and Benji may not .ake the team every week, Packer cant do the off field stuff with all sponsors for obvious reasons and 9nly plays 40 mins, ET on the field is usually too stuffed to be captain and Reynolds is new to the club, has a bad rep with refs and lots of other to focus on.

If course on the field tjeir will be one captain but on field leadership never just comes from a captain and if it does you have the wrong team.

As for those against it ive not read any reason on this forum so far other then its different i dont like it .

You could be right but a few passes into row z under match conditions will fix that. :lol:

5 is a leadership group, you only need one captain on the paddock.

What's next, trying to run out with 20 players as they all deserved a spot? This is a cop out

What does that even mean???

There really are some whack jobs on this forum. Nothing the club does is correct. Did you not read the example set by the Melbourne Storm??

Bagging Cleary for not naming one Captain is really funny. Seeing as how most of you bagged the last two captains unmercifully (Farah and Woods). You now have multiple choice.

I don't think we will finish the season with 5 captains. Hopefully only 2 at most. It is strange though. Good on Cleary for being his own person. Fingers crossed it all comes good.

Perhaps Cleary is thinking that though Benji or Lawrence probably won't make the run-on teams, they are the leaders, and really those two are the guys that the young fellas in the club look up to. So, by making them included as "captains", really only in name, it helps unite and strengthen the club.

My question is what about Brooks and Nofa? If you're going to have 5 captains, why not have 7? Maybe not Brooks cos IC isn't sure he can cut it and doesn't want to axe the "captain" during the year.

Why
1. As previously stated its NRL , not friggin mini league

2. Cleary isn't very confident in giving the outright position in captain / co captain to just 2 players

3. What will bet the pecking order if and when all 5 co- captains are all on the field ?
Who approaches the refs when we're getting shafted ?

It just should have been
Taylor ..captain (level headed )
Reynolds co- captain ( we need the occasional outburst from a nut job )

Embarrassing to say the least !

The Storm had co-captains. The Swans have done so.
Captains. Leadership group. What's the difference? Talking to the ref?

In any case they'll all do a better job than Woodsy.
