Re: WTs 2019 Front Rowers

Based on two good attributes for a prop being weight and age, I use a quick and deadly calculation for sports betting that is simply a division of the first by the second. It is flawed in many respects because weight should result from muscle rather than fat, youth does not necessarily equate to spe...

Re: NRL Announcement

The Obeid family controls politicians, councils, unions, probably also judges, and anyone else they need to manipulate in order to gain an advantage. Information and insider trading is a nice little earner for them, and they don't hand out money without expecting favours in return. Sports betting is...

Re: NRL Announcement

That's the word, " intent". Without it Pascoe was stupid, with it he was dishonest. Pretty much the same as premeditation is the only difference between murder and manslaughter. I trust Pascoe and think he simply tried to bend the rules rather than break them, and would not have been put in that pos...

Re: NRL Announcement

This whole mess would no doubt make complete sense to the NRL or anyone else in possession of all the facts, but we are missing a few pieces of the puzzle I think. There needs to have been correspondence, or at least conversations between the NRL and Pascoe along the lines of Pascoe being asked if t...

Re: NRL Announcement

Ripping the bandaid off is well and good for this little wound, but if it happens that we are part of larger plans I can guarantee there will be more hurt to come. I don't know what the answer is, but I just hope we go down swinging and the public gets to see the NRL for what they truly are.

Re: NRL Announcement

The B grade journalists and the shock jocks who are always looking to drag out the dirt and make names for themselves don't seem to be picking up any of this. I've completely lost track of who in the media owns who these days, but those involved with channel nine and Foxtell for starters are not abo...

Re: NRL Announcement

All Greenberg really had to do was invite Pascoe to show cause why sanctions should not be applied, and then proceed in an adult business-like fashion. His childish display of aggression has now given us ammunition to sue the NRL for damage to our brand, and to Pascoe's reputation. I don't know what...

Re: NRL Announcement

Robbie has confirmed that his ambassadorship role was all over the media but we are led to believe that Greenberg and his employees who are paid to police such things knew nothing of it until two months ago? Yes, Pascoe made a mistake by not following procedure, but Greenberg had knowledge and by fa...

Re: NRL Announcement

No harm, no foul. Who has been harmed? No-one. Was there an intention to harm? No. Has an opposition club been disadvantaged? No. Have we manipulated a financial gain? No. Other than having hurt the feelings of the NRL for not keeping them in the loop, there has been no harm done. Boo effing hoo. If...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

One thing Madge might be able to bring with him is a couple of big scary Islanders to fill out the side and give us some strength up front. The Kiwis love him, and the Tigers would be like a second home with the ones we have already. Not enough for a Haka but we are getting there....

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Back on topic. If recent reports are true the Broncos are interviewing four prospective coaches of whom Maguire is one. If we end up with Maguire it will only be because he is a Bronco's reject - where is the pride in that? I'd rather take the initiative by telling Ivan he can go now with no settlem...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Screw the lot of them. That funny little man Geoff Toovey isn't doing anything at the moment, he coaches at 58%, comes cheap, and has passion. We've had a lot worse than him before.... Mate. The club is cash strapped as it is. We can't afford all the investigations he will call for. Get on the inve...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

I've lost track of who can or can't walk without breaking contract, but it's starting to look like a Mexican standoff for money. If the Broncos or Tigers sack a coach early it will cost them, if they tell them they are free to go they gain nothing, but if they sell or trade they can possibly finish ...

Re: Modern game is all about speed and power

I agree with Eddie and most of these posts but would add that if we are serious about winning we need to get down and dirty. We have a nice management team, a nice coach, a nice coaching staff, a nice culture, nice old players, nice little players, all sitting together in their nice little bus, and ...
