Cooper Cronk



  • Just secured a nice post retirement gig as Roosters halves coach, without drama or question. Gotta love the ‘equality’ of the NRL.



  • Cap needs to be scrapped and clubs can compete in transparent and equal manner
    The cap allows certain clubs to spend more than others who cannot spend money on players in the MANNER that certain clubs can make payments
    From coaching gigs , benefits from sponsors , ability to sign older players on long term contracts then ‘retire ‘ them, TPA which I can’t see how any other than maybe one or two in whole game are true tpa’s without club involvement

    Rather know a club is going crap spending x amount compared to another club spending Y, then this attempt to project both clubs spending x

    We can do that aswell and have done so in the past.

    Of course he did! Wonder when this was first agreed on between Cronk and Roosters… at the end of the day it’s impossible for auditors to prove that this was organised while he was playing if it was based on a ‘handshake’.
    How could we have been so dumb?!

    Maybe we were trying to be somewhat more transparent. Just a thought. Maybe being genuine is a crime in this field of play. But carry on putting the boots in.

    I got off the merry-go-round at the age of about 5 mate. Seems you still get a thrill by riding it.

    My comment in being ‘dumb’ describes exactly how we went about it, Rusty! There were comments that Pascoe didn’t even realise he was breaking salary cap rules by agreeing with Robbie about his Ambassador role and creating a contract.
    If that’s so, that’s just dumb!
    Or if he did, and thought he’d get away with it, that’s just dumb too!
    All he needed to do was nod-nod, wink-wink and shake on it, like every other club does!! Dumb not to…

    If that’s ‘putting the boot in’… well, maybe he deserves it.

    The thread was titled ‘‘Cooper Cronk’’ with no reference to anything else. How is one supposed to know what its about specifically if they don’t open the thread?

    Fair enough Barra. There’s few on here that hang crap on him every possible chance they get- yet we seem to be in reasonable shape. If what he did was so obviously dumb and so wrong and was blatant cheating etc. then why was it never raised by the powers that be long before? And for that matter, why didn’t the know-it-all forum folk that consider it so wrong and stupid also get stuck into him long before the crap hit the fan? The reason I suggest, is because nobody really considered it to be wrong. Quite the opposite in fact. But as soon as we’re hung out to dry by the NRL, out come the knockers. Usually I’m quite fond of knockers.
