Thought Lawrence showed glimpses of his '10/'11 form towards the end of this season though still mixed it up with some of the rubbish we’ve come to expect from him in the past couple of seasons (his reads in defence were terrible) so rather indifferent about reading the OP.

Think he’s seen better days and we should definitely go after a gun centre for 2015 (someone like a Wighton would be good though i think he’s been made a priority re-signing by the Raiders).

With Braith at 6 we are royally fucked

Has always been November.

Even last year when they were sorting out the fixed draw for the first time.

Relocation wouldn’t affect the TV rights deal as broadcasters would still be getting their usual 8 games a week. If a franchise folded completely (if that’s what you’re alluding to) and we went back to the old system of 7 games a week + 1 team having a bye then yes I’m sure broadcasters would dispute this.

Re: Cronulla if they were to pack up shop and move to an expansion region (central Qld, Perth, Gosford etc.) they would lose say 10,000-20,000 supporters max? and it’s fair to say this figure won’t be changing anytime soon. Where as moving elsewhere could potentially see the Sharks gain tens of thousands of supporters so I don’t see any great value lost to the right’s deal through relocating them.

It’s the ‘elephant in the room’ in footy that there’s too many teams in Sydney and that rationalisation is needed to improve the game’s national standing. If the NRL (or ARL back then) could eradicate historic, foundation teams who’d experienced success such as the Bears and Jets then surely relatively young clubs with little success such as the Cronulla are expendable

One of the few lowlights of last night’s Storm/Knights game I thought was seeing him give Mclean from Melbourne an absolute gob full while he was on the deck KO’d cold following a sickening head clash with Mckinnon……Bit of ‘argy bargy’ ensued and I was really hoping (whilst not condoning violence) that someone put one on his chin…I suppose not much can be expected of a grub who assaults their ex-girlfriend…

Thoughts?

Paul Vautin

Arrogant. Rude. Unprofessional.

x 100.

If I hear him refer to another person as ‘champ’ again I’ll spew….Dunno how he’s kept a job with 9 so long even if he does have connections and mates in management…Thick as two short planks and rude as you say especially to members of the footy show audience.

Somehow (I dunno how) TFS seems to keep reeling off Logies with him at the helm despite his ‘talents’ or lack there of as a presenter. A bit of an indictment on those who follow our great game I guess…

Scored his first try since the '05 grand final in the Sharks win over the Raiders tonight!

A moment to savour for sure!

Nofa just over Tedesco for mine as he was more consistent across the course of the season, Teddy’s had a great final month of the season and was solid for the rest of it while Nofa was a standout in just about every game he played.

To be fair to Teddy though he was coming off a serious ACL injury last year and shouldn’t have been expected to set the world on fire at any stage this year….It was good to see him find his feet later in the season, his attacking abilities look to be finally coming to the fore…

@citizen cub:

Gee our defence is crap……Doesn’t matter how good our young crop of talent is we just simply can’t and won’t win games in the future unless there are drastic improvements in this area.

Good to see Marshall just having a crack (this is all I’ve asked of him, not to set the world alight every time he plays) though I’m still glad he’s leaving…

Haha 'having a crack;

He saved probably his biggest blooper for last, his kick hit the bloody grandstand roof

Thanks benji, but - boot off quick!

What I mean by this is actually taking on the line in attack and not always just serving up the same ‘inside ball’ rubbish….He’s put his body on the line a bit more in defence as well IMO
