I guarantee you our 5 captains earn less penalties than Cam Smith.

I would like to see them play with the refs in good humour with all 5 bombarding Badger the Hipster or Chechen.

I don't mind it. It's the only option that would satisfy both rewarding Tiger loyalty (Lawrence and benji) and ensuring that they could still be demoted to the bench or reserves if performances dictate.

I honestly think it's the best solution, even though it's not ideal.

My only problem is it leaves the club and the coach open to ridicule if your losing games and at the bottom of the table. We know the press can be a pretty simple bunch. I just worry that with 5 home grounds and 5 captains if we cant win 5 games we will be a complete laughing stock.

All the press will jump over the fact - who is the real leader out there ? These blocks are a shambles etc.

Win and Cleary looks genius.

People will use it either way to his Cleary or pin him - when in reality it probably has little impact on the teams results.

Anyway - I just want to win.

So Brooks running the show could have as many as 5 captains on the field at one time. Me thinks this may confuse him even more.

Disappointing decision. It basically tells the world that we have no leader. 5 co-captains, what a shambles...
Year of last finals appearance:
2017 - Storm, Roosters, Broncos, Eels, Sharks, Sea Eagles, Panthers, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers, Warriors

To be honest I would have preferred to see a Captain and co Captain at most, although I think I get where Ivan is coming from. It could end up being a good thing.

The ref is only going to speak to one captain. A decision will be made.

Rumour going around that the 23 left out of the captaincy sharing have asked for a immediate release from the remainder of their contracts

Any chance the Balmain Charmer might be the onfield captain?

I’ll tell you who the on field captain is. Ron Palmer.
Makes its much easier to get coach’s message to the group if you have 5 Players available to pass it on.
Are we going to see captain huddles in game whenever a decision is required?

I for one applaud the decision (after thinking about it for some time). There's a cultural Renaissance being created @ the club and the players are at the forefront of creating it...

Who's going to stand up & be counted - who isn't. A term that IC has used a couple of times now in media releases is 'osmosis', it's gone over some of your heads - some of you need to Google it.

Leader(s) rises from amongst the ranks. You have no business trying to relieve the sword from the stone if you're not worthy. The Boys are putting in some good work, and they're acutely aware of what's going on in & around the club.

We must put our emotions aside. We need more belief in the process - the last 5 years mean SF all, especially to the players, trust me. The fact is is that the big bus has left the depot (sometime around November!) It doesn't matter who got off at the last stop and who didn't - the next stop is finals football.

The way I see it, if it works, why the hell not? I'm sure (or hope) things will be clearer 6-8 rounds into the comp, and someone will stand up.

If we score more points than the other team on a regular basis, then it'll be a sound decision. Couldn't be any worse than the last couple of years!

Interesting that Benji was thrown in the mix, must be going to get plenty of game time.

Looking forward to the year, getting good vibes..

I agree with what you have said .... Cleary probably has not made his mind up yet with this new squad!
I would imagine that the most important thing is the first month of the season, I like decisions from left field , yes all of us have been used to one person being the captain , maybe sharing the load between a few might in fact be positive .. time will tell .I really do not know who would be the best option let’s face it there are a few that were popular that might not even be in the squad,
I trust the coaches thoughts .

We need 6 more captains.
