Re: NRL Confirms 'Brain Bunker' for 2019

But then its an advantage to the side who is lucky enough to get away without a HIA - its a real problem and unfortunately i believe the NRL is too inept to come up with any solution.

Greg Eastwood has signed with Newtown jets apparently
Yea they are comparing his signing as almost as good as when they signed Tommy in the 80s - they have got to be kidding.

Re: NRL Confirms 'Brain Bunker' for 2019

True - but will be interesting when teams are reduced to 12 players because of over cautiousness. concussion is something i'd say it's ok to be overcautious about. i'd be happy if a physio made a mistake and a player was playing with an acl injury, hell cooper cronk played with a broken bone- as lo...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Who's good enough...? I reckon Taumalolo shoud replace Musgrove.. Absolutely 👌 If not Taumalolo, my packing order is: S Burgess M Taupau Honestly when Newcastle offered 1 Million for Klemmer I was thinking $1 Million for Taumalolo is worth it. Sadly he ain't going anywhere. (but a few offers could ...

Re: More bad behaviour

How many times must players and teams transgress before suffering consequences fitting the crimes. Ingles - cap rorting, hitting women, high range drink driving (probably over 1.0 in Dubbo). Sharks - Peptides, cap rorting, breaking NRL instructions, team drinking indiscretions. Just a joke NRL mana...

Re: More bad behaviour

There is no leadership from the hierarchy. The NRL drifts from one bad headline to the next because idiots like Napa believe they can get away with this behaviour without serious repercussions. Suspend him and others for a year without pay and make them work during the suspension. The hard question...

Re: Tim Simona

For mine the Tigers should be the only club that can bring him back if they wish . Sick of other clubs having to sack players and them coming back elsewhere. Anyway probably a moot point as I doubt he will be back. Still I wouldn't be against it given the landscape and the potential that this would...

Re: Tim Simona

Geez, tough one, especially as individuals were hurt by the jersey crap. Still, everyone deserves a shot at redemption. Yea - what individuals were hurt - the guy withheld money from a charity - no one was beaten, no one was sexually assaulted. I work in the disability sector and i see these people...

Re: More bad behaviour

Wonder if the NRL CEO Greenturd will write a character reference for MCK? Or does one have to be a salary cap cheat first? It's not favouritism though, there's no bias. it's just that Todd knows Greg and thinks he is a top bloke. So because Greg is a top bloke, who has done well for the NRL, Todd w...

Re: More bad behaviour

I often wonder why it seems ok to discriminate against redheads. Especially when they are suggested to be inferior or different to the redt of us. Replace ranga with black or muslim in those posts above and the reactions and reply's would be fierce. Not having a go at you guys and no im not a redhe...

Some of the posters on here are so righteous they would put Mother Superior to shame. Should those people (include myself) lower our standards to the level of criminals?

Re: Tim Simona

It was so dumb. He looked like a potentially very good player even while intentionally throwing games! Really stupid. Thats a bit over the top - where is the evidence that he actually threw any games. They did prove he not only bet on the games he played in, but bet on his opposing player to score ...

Re: Tim Simona

Some charities rip off the public more so than what Tim has done. eg. raising millions only to keeping 80% of that in house to cover 'expenses & wages'. He's already been subject to public humiliation and his wrongs have resulted in him losing a great gig which has most likely resulted in losing mi...
