You’re kidding Alex, Individual Player Numbers are more important at the moment.
A slow descent into insanity.

RE: The Storm Rorting Super Thread.....
Copied directly from a poster over at LU
Steve Mascourd just reported on FOX,that the full extent of the breach is unknown,but it has now hit 1.3 million for season 2010,and that justifies the NRL’s hard line stance on no points this year.
Man that is getting massive now….that 1.3 would most probably pay for Ingliss, Slater and Cronk for the year.
If you evened out that pay over the 25 man roster it equals just over $50K per player over the cap…makes you wonder how they ever managed to lose…Especially 40 - blot in the 08 decider.
If they keep digging they will find even more no doubt. Whats the bet that by the end of this they get over 2 mill ?
Jesus, I reckon if the NRL backflips and lets them remove the amount of players in the cash above the salary cap to play for points, Inglis, Slater, Cronk and Smith would be the only ones taking the field…
I can pretty much bet lefty the Rorters are doing it too, but while Schubert and Politis are involved with the game they will never get busted. They’re a protected species until the Independent Commission comes in.
RE: Banish Cooper from Origin
Yeah bugger him - this arrogant approach to a rep game should not be rewarded…from Lyon or Cooper.
In fact Lyon is my most hated player for the way he has treated the game over the years. I cant believe he still gets selected for Origin or the Aussies. Cooper needs to pull his head in, 5 years in a row is utter BS.
One place that the Blues are oozing talent is in the centres: Lawrence, Jennings, Scott, Reddy…
Cooper is selected because he is one of the best defensive centres in the game. Lawrence is a great defender + he can score tries.
RE: Individual Player Numbers
The idea has merit and would probably make truckloads of cash however do we really want the game to end up like soccer or basketball where supporting the player is almost more important than the team?
There’s a potential for it all to go pear shaped by giving the players a big ego shot. Clubs may well sign certain players for the potential cash windfall instead of their ability.
You could see players using their jersey sales to determine their contracts, not their grit and talent on the paddock.
RE: Banish Cooper from Origin
The way I see it, Jamie Lyon has been allowed to dictate whether he is available or not for origin year after year, so why can’t Cooper do the same? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
Why would you want to select someone whose heart isn’t in it anyway? I’m sure they’ll find someone with a bit more passion to represent Country.

…And he’s still sooking…
Pump up Messiah and get over it. If you stopped carrying on like a pigheaded jackarse everyone would leave you alone
you know what dude, you are the one who leads personal attacks, what have i said that warrants you going off like a keyboard warrior? i guarentee if you ever met me face to face you wouldnt say these things to me, when have i acted like a “pigheaded jackarse” as you put it? because i said the FWO are a bunch of losers?
didnt know having an opinion warranted these consistant personal attacks from you which are BTW against forum rules.
but like i said if you have a problem and want to keep on with the name calling like a 12 year old school girl PM me and if you live in the sydney area we can organise to meet and settle our difference in person.
Isn’t telling someone you’ll fight them a very childish thing to do as well? Violence is the lowest form of conflict resolution and a poor reflection of character. You’re more than entitled to your opinion, but when you carry on it gives the impression (and in no way will I speak for anyone else here,) that you are arrogant and complain when someone doesn’t see something your way.
What I’m saying is give it a rest and grow up a little bit. Some of the threads you are involved with end up gravitating to being about you, and you supposed beef with admin and you messianic complex and the such. It was humourous at first but get tiring very quickly and it makes you sound like a petulant child when you complain about it. Telling someone to pull their head in on the internet is not being a keyboard warrior, If we were all standing around in a room and someone was carrying on, someone would most probably tell them to pull their head in as well.
Lol anyone saying Gibbs isn’t one of the form props of the comp either hasn’t watched any tigers games or doesn’t know anything about Footy
Lets be real here, this is Phil Rothfield. He’s a barrel of laughs the way he gets massacred on his blog by fans with hald a brain, and still thinks he has credibility when it comes to league.
Here are some of the clangers he has put across;
- He says Gibbs wouldn’t make the Cronulla FG side. Gibbs would be a marquee player and captain for Cronulla!;
- He doesn’t rate the Tigers;
- He doesn’t rate Marshall, but he’s the first one to carry on when he’s on fire. I love watching Marshall take the Sharks apart every time they play them;
- He bags the NRL for not forcing clubs to move games to bigger venues, but sits there and praises traditionalism and playing at suburban grounds;
- He said Cronulla would make the 8 this year;
- He has said for the last two years that Price and Seventycentsalitre are pensioners only to watch them dominate guys 10 years younger than them;
- He says that Gidley should still be playing Origin;
- He says Paul Gallen should be the first man picked for NSW;
- He says Ennis is better than Farah;
- He’s “predicted” 3-0 victories to NSW for the last two series and is already calling this years 3-blot to the Roaches;
- He says Ricky Stuart is a great coach;
- He says Brian Smith is a s**t coach (Hasn’t won a premiership but rebuilds clubs and gets a lot of them to the grand final, and doesn’t need anyone to hold his hand unlike one Richard Stuart);
- He says he knows the game better than Gould;
- He attacks Gould for bagging the administration, and then gets on his blogs and criticises the NRL to high heaven.
The only thing he really has said that has any truth to it is that the Dragons would choke last year, which they did. But even a broken clock is right twice a day.
Top post CB…I’ll just add 2010-The Year of Bryce
Rothfield hangs out with Wilson …what do you expect,
Yeah, thats why I buy the Herald on Sundays… Aside from Weidler, Gould has an agenda but at least he talks footy and makes sense. The Telecrap resembles a gossip column on Sundays with “Bec & Buzz.”
Typical stories include the “scandal at an unnamed club featuring unnamed players which we can’t mention for legal reasons”, “Who’s Braith Anasta dating this week?” and the atypical “Sonny Bill wants out of French Union” only to sign another deal a couple of weeks down the track (although the Weidler is guilty of that too.) The Tele sports section, especially league, has been s**thouse since Chippy Frilingos carked it.
They both have zero credibility. Buzz need not despair though, he could always get a job for the New Idea and speculate whether Jennifer Aniston is still pissy at Brad for leaving her for a chick with a great rack and lips that would suck your face off.
RE: Guess what's in this parcel
I haven’t been a mod for almost a month now princess Ron. At least get your facts right there.
As for any offence caused BRET I made the statement to make a point but obviously it came across as offensive rather than as intended. Unreserved apology from me
sorry smeg didnt realise…even so my point still stands
Christ you’re a attention whore Ron… I swear you stir the pot just to get people talking to/about you. You’ve got quite a pathetic little vendetta going on against the moderators and administrators on this forum. Give yourself an uppercut and grow up.
