No point in even discussing. Conspiracy theorists always follow the standard crackpots template when you try to argue the conspiracy. “Do you own research” outside of MSM (which they say also includes recognised journals etc) and “that’s what they want you to believe”. You can’t win.
I have tried before to try and get them to discuss rationally with actual viable facts and figures and it’s a lost cause. I have given up because I finally recognised that if I don’t want to interact with clowns, stop going to the circus (social media)

@facepalmer said in David Nofoaluma re-signs until 2025..:

This is awesome news. A great player. Professional clubman. Someone who works hard and bleeds for the club. Remember this is a bloke that Madge DROPPED and that came back afterwards and was our player of the year and Dally M Winger of the Year a season later. Re-signing him was necessary as it says a ton about our culture, our club and our coach.

Anyone complaining about this needs to pull their head out of the sand and actually be a supporter for once instead of a Chicken Little sky is falling dipstick all the time. This is one of the greatest Tigers of all time, our current best damn player and he re-signed in his prime on a reasonable contract. If you’re gonna complain about this then I feel bad for those around you honestly.

Completely agree, way too many drama queens and Monday morning qb’s on this forum

@Tiger5150 said in Wests Tigers sign James Roberts till 2022:

This might sound ridiculous, but the photos posted, he LOOKS fast, something about the way he runs.

Absolutely I was going to post exactly the same thing… just looks fast like a thoroughbred

Happy New Year All !!
Here’s hoping for a very promising & successful 2021.

Couple Of Things:

Nofoaluma talks are progressing/promising, the sticking point is most certainly the 3/4 year deal side of things, club recently came back with a counter offer of a 4 year deal but the 4th year being in the clubs favor, this was submitted in the last couple days.

Madge/Club really liking the looks of young Allan Fitzgibbion, every chance of snagging a top 30 spot on minimum wage for 2021, only concern is attitude/application towards doing the extras needed but club surrounding with the right people to get him on track.

Panthers still not playing ball in relation to Laurie, but the club will keep a top 30 spot open for him till it has to be filled.

Remaining spot looking to go towards a utility forward/lock.

Mbye has had some discussions with clubs north of the border over the break & would like to move back to QLD but nothing solid yet to come from it. Also Walters to Brisbane talk won’t go away, if that does eventuate the club will look for another utility half type for depth purposes, no names yet if this comes to fruition.

Also Cini still likely to leave the club but the spot would more likely be filled with a train & trial player like Tyrone Roberts-Davis

Any idea what the plan is for a backup fullback? Roberts-Davis could do it I guess if he gets a top 30 spot. How’s jimmy the jet looking for round 1? Thanks for the udaiye.

If Mbye injured/not performing Kepaoa has been doing some work with him at Fullback.

The Jet looking fit & happy, could be in for huge year. Really gelling with the team.

Hey mate I assume mansour is a no go then or still possible?

He’s off to South’s 2 year deal, 2nd year in the clubs favour

If so that would put an end to south’s supposed chase of Nofo you would assume.

There’s a lot of people that should be charged with sedition.

Also I expect a fairly large investigation into how the security forces let this happen to the extent it happened.

Narcissist in Chief may also be shown the door by tomorrow as well, it appears he’s been left out of a lot of decision making with today’s events. I wouldn’t be surprised if Pence will be tasked with holding the fort until Biden is inaugurated

I think the Republicans have realised Trump has just jumped the shark. Problem is they’ve let it go on too long now, and he’s that far gone it will irreparably damage the Republican voter base.

The Republican party could well have complete split into 2 seperate parties depending on if the majority go with the wannabee dictator or decide to keep to their supposed traditional values

I think you could say that about both sides. Republicans into Republicans & Trumpists. Dems could split into the Biden and AOC parties, even AOC has said the same things.

IMO compulsory voting in the US would tighten the focus of both of these parties. If both the Dems and Reps could abandon their fringes, the US and the world would be in a better place.

I think Australia is helped by having more prominent smaller parties. The Liberal and Labor parties here are moderated by more hardline elements being drawn out (left to the Greens, right to One Nation etc). But the smaller parties also help to ‘keep them honest’, by giving an extra level of scrutiny.

True, which was the original premise of the Australian democrats with Don Chipp, “keep the bastards honest”… party was never the same once Don retired/passed.

I honestly don’t think I’ve seen anything like this in my close to 50 odd years on this planet. I’m shocked. America is clearly a mess of a country but the level of stupidity that people can devolve too astounds me.

I’d love to see Trump prosecuted but I don’t know what for. He should be removed from office for being the most unethical and incompetent president in the history of the US.

His supporters really need to look at themselves. Anyone who believes in conspiracy theories should really get psychological counseling.

I’d like to offer more than one upvote for your comments @Earl if I could, especially concerning the conspiracy theory nutbags.

Rumours of Mitchell Pearce coming now. Thoughts?

If I remember rightly he never wanted to play for us for fear of living in his fathers shadow. He can staying living outside his shadow.

True and good call. He’s not fit to shine his old mans boots as a player and a man.

@Sausagesorcerer said in All the Tries : Benji Marshall:

The bloke was making the best defensive teams look average
So far ahead of his time.might be some bias but I can’t think of a better highlight reel from any player
Bowens is pretty good ,but Benji’s is something else.

He really was a generational player - should have had more than one premiership to his name

The key word above though is …was… enjoy it, but time to move on.

@sleeve said in David Nofoaluma:

Wingers greatest strength is speed,this diminishes with age.A certain billiant winger has just joined a club on a 4 yr contact beginning in 2022.The winger will be 26 starting the contract and 30 on his final year.The fact is it is very rare to see a top class winger at at 30.The Morris bros. being the exception and on low salaries, Mansour is bad value.

Agreed. Story on Foxsports saying the dogs have gambled $4M on two wingers… madness I tells ya…
