Now that we’ve put in our submission anyone have any idea on how long it takes for them to review such things?

they will drag it out so that our season will be over, before we get any decision. :bash :blah

Rumours that dragons are shopping Aitken

Decent centre, proven in first grade, Momo is still an unknown quantity.

Bound to have injuries during the year, I’d be jumping on it.

just ONE SMALL PROBLEM we dont have any funds. :brick: :dead

why the hell would we sign either of these two losers, also they are not what we need. we need forwards, just like the past, sign has beans and no - hoppers, the cost of these two, we could up grade to 1 decent forward i guess.

cant help but feel this is the NRL trying to rub out the tigers, the penalty is extremely harsh and iam dam sure if it was one of the 4-5 top clubs this would be a different story. just my gut feeling.

whether it is right or wrong to let him back is not up to any of us, if the NRL SAYS HE CAN COME BACK then so be it, we may as well get him or some less RIGHTOUS TEAM will reap the rewardeds.

come on every one this is a much weaker squad then last year, senior players are 1 year older, and really only one class purchase in matterson. dont think grub will get through the season so we will have to do with benji again, this is not a bad thing but he is getting on.

thats why the drag queens released mann, it would appear they signed Jennings, then. again are club has been caught sitting on the hands, must clubs have been signing but we just stick are heads in the sand.

maybe cini , should be starting in the ISP , plenty of players have been 18 and played 1st grade, brasher, mitchell are just a couple, we could do with a player with a step and speed.

Happy with the player signings so far… but…let’s be honest…
I know we aren’t Melb or Rosters but I think we would all be lying to ourselves if we can’t admit that without signing a gun centre and proper forward it’s another failed off-season / foray into the player market.

Most distressing is that there are already posts that precede this one, from our fans, that they are satisfied with our 2019 team and how we should probably start thinking about 2020…
ummm, FYI it’s practically the same team! the team that missed the 8…AGAIN!

We were apparently all “cashed up” and it was largely acknowledged that the 2018 off-season was/is absolutely the window where we need to sign established guns into centre and forward. Particularly forward.
We have added no origin or rep players to our roster, nor have we even signed any established first-graders, so please, do not cite the lame old reason of the “salary cap” - I do not buy it. That’s an excuse for sour-grape-suckers who (1) are never privvy to actual accounts and (2) who veil their inferiority complex behind the excuse of the salary cap. Sorry - that’s how I feel.
From where I sit it seems we picked up a few fringe first-graders to fill these positions (though they may come good…I do have hope for Momo). But this is just not good enough. I know the off-season isn’t over, but we cannot be complacent. We need to demand better. We need quality!

We need to appreciate that:
(1) our forward pack has lacked punch for years and this excuse has inevitably followed most of our losses - and rightly so.
(2) the Brooks thread has largely been dominated by his groupies slamming his critics, but what we all can agree on is that he hasn’t had a proper pack to play behind - and this may very well turn him into a world-beater.

As it stands right now, we haven’t made significant improvements to our pack, so I don’t see how either of the above trends will change. Thus, I fail to grasp how can any of us realistically expect it to be anything but another year of what if’s.

Look, I love our players and have a natural bias as to how awesome they are, but I am trying to be objective, so unless Madge is an absolute genius I just can’t see us doing much better in 2019, with largely the same cattle.

Please don’t call me a pessimist, I am just calling for some perspective.

We need to learn from the mistakes of the past. Stupidity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
Cronulla did things differently and reaped rewards by becoming a perennial threat. So did Souths.
It’s bloody well our turn. Come on Madge!!! Come on fans! Let’s NOT settle for anything less than the absolute best we can get!

Please don’t shoot down those like me who only want a crazy amazing team and refuse to settle.

gee its good to see that some one else can see are, short comings in recruitment. yes we got 3 players that may be good, but there along way from rep players. most on here need to get there heads out of the sand and see it for what it really is, another failed roster. and if most think it will be better in 2020, just harp back to what we have been dished up over the last 5-10 tens years.
