I’m not for signing someone just to sign someone. If someone came to improve the roster, great, otherwise promote from within and add those dollars to next time. The amount of dollars we have spare wouldn’t be enough to buy decent of anything.

RE: Folau could be welcomed back - Sky News
It was reported earlier that RA did not include any special conditions into Folou’s last contract that he signed, even after similar comments he had made. RA then had another contract with amendments given to him but his manager advised him not to sign it.
This alone tells me that RA thought that the signed contract wasn’t appropriate enough to sack him if he kept up his actions.
This thought that RA are fine because they would have done due diligence is a nonsense. Even their independent panel reviewing Folou’s contract and RA’s position in regards to further court action took weeks to come out in favour of RA. This tells me that it isn’t concrete in RA favour at all.
I always use the Lindy Chamberlain case in assessing court judgements. Both sides used experienced and well qualified experts to attest under oath that the evidence provided the cause of death - the dingo or Lindy. The court went with prosecution experts. How did that end up?
RE: We thought we had him
Just another over the hill has-been taking money from a footy club.
Lots of fanfare for coaltrain at the Capras but another failure to launch. Last year he was typically Dave Taylor, trying to be a ball playing halfback instead of the hard running, metre making forward he was brought in to be.
He’s only played a few games this year and at a guess no training sessions at all.
RE: Signing Suggestions & Rumours
I’ve always wondered just how good coaches really are. They invariably say that speed is truly desired in players so why can’t coaches improve these speedy buggers?
Euan Aitken has speed to burn but can’t tackle the same goes for Meaney. Their current coaches can’t seem to get much improvement in defense from them.
They wouldn’t cost the earth to buy but obviously Madge doesn’t think he could improve them either. I would love to have some real speedsters in the team.
I suppose my thinking is that someone at the Tigers has got Luke Brooks to tackle much better than the speed bump he was?
RE: Penalty Try?
Gotta laugh with some comments being bandied about. Firstly, Phil Gould going on about being an alien then stating that the player fell short of the line anyway just as the replay showed he landed well over said line.
Others saying it wasn’t even a head shot, some saying it bounced off the ball then hit his head. Hello, it is now illegal to make contact with a players head even if he slips and his head is 10cms from the ground - hit head, automatic penalty. Green saying no way can you say 100% he was going to score??? The video official, in his opinion, thought he was going to score - try.
It is a different game from 30 years ago, like it or not.
In Townsville, watched on TV
Well here we are in Townsville and watched the game on TV.
Before getting up me, we are here for my youngest grandson’s birthday and christening. My son is married into a staunch Cowboys family and they all had tickets to the game and he wore his Tigers gear.
We had offered to baby sit so he could go.
The Tigers function was on Thursday night but after driving 7 hours we had to attend a family dinner at Brothers leagues club that night.
But today is my day with everyone meeting near the Strand for his birthday party and I’ll be there wearing my 2019 members polo and the biggest smile on my face. I’ll get all the flak that the refs were on our side blah, blah, blah but I’ll just grin even more and tell them ‘welcome to my world’ Cowgirls!
It’s a great day in the morning.
