@PabloX said in Harry Grant:

I’d be happy to offer Harry the captaincy next year if he were to stay. Could even be a carrot to keep him.

I know yesterday he said he was going back to the storm, but what else was he going to say.

I have no idea how this plays out, I’m pretty sure Harry doesn’t either, but for obvious reasons I want him to stay.

Offering the captaincy to a kid whose played less than 10 games. Can you imagine how desperate it would make this club look. What’s the big deal about the captaincy anyway. Romanticism that supporters think the players would care about. The only thing that could keep him here is $$$

BJ hit out in anger, but there was no intent to harm the bloke. He just hit out at whoever was nearby out of frustration. Not good, but not malicious. An act of opportunity.

Dogshot Mitchell clearly had intent to harm Reynolds, you could see the anger in his face. How that wasn’t even considered by the judiciary is testament to their inadequacy.

So you make excuses for BJ, yet with LM it’s black and white. A dog shot. Try looking through both eyes instead of one

I wasn’t making excuses, I was drawing a comparison. BJ should have gotten into trouble over his action. Comparatively less trouble than Dogshot Mitchell, because his action carried intent.

That’s not bias (well maybe calling Mitchell Dogshot Mitchell is showing bias sure), but that’s not bias in viewing the two acts.

Dogshot Mitchell’s act was sentenced the same as Reynolds act. In your opinion does that seem reasonable?

Yes, cos they were as both as bad as each other. Don’t know how you can condemn one but make excuses for the other

Personally I think Mitchell’s was considerably worse

And I’m sure you will tell me that it has nothing to do with the fact he’s an opposition player 🤷‍♂️

Not a signing for us … but down here in the Nations Capital - Canberra … I’m hearing a lot of noise that Billy Walters will be released by us to the Raiders next week for the rest of the season to play hooker / utility role for them … ?? I hope this isn’t true, why would we help those bludgers … !!

Surely not. Releasing CT without having anyone lined up was bad enough.

Seems like as Maguire walks on water at the moment with this roster and team selection releasing Thompson whilst great for him was a dumb move…He would have been pretty handy against Souff’s on the wing… it may have even been a different result…

We are good guys though maybe Manly would like Douiehi Dogs can have Brooks Raiders Walters or any other Clubs that could use a hand…

Even the Blue wiggle on the Fan was scratching his head…

They wanted to blood Talau. Doing the right thing comes back to you Corey deserves the release.

We did the right thing by players for a while now Moses/Matterson recently…

Blair before that Taupau…too…

Just when does is it come back…

The Matterson situation still baffles me to this day… why we didn’t demand Stefano back in return at the very least is laughable

Because it was before we signed him

@JD-Tiger said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

My biggest concern with putting an offer to JDB is the opportunity cost. Isn’t his court case scheduled for much later in the year? So if we’ve offered him say for example $400k a year, that’s $400k tied up in that offer that we can’t offer to anyone else (like CHN or TPJ - and yes I’m dreaming on TPJ).

Even if he agrees and signs with us tomorrow, we still have to wait for the court matters to finalise, and what if he’s found guilty? Then we respend that money on someone else I guess but have still potentially missed other players who have since signed elsewhere.

No one is going to touch him and the NRL will not register his contract till he’s cleared. So that hypothetical is pointless.

Of course the media have to take some blame for not turning up the heat. They had a field day with BJ, spread his face all over the back page of most eastern state rags and gave him prime time on television making him out to be a thug. Yet with Latrell they basically accept the league’s ruling. The NRL will do nothing unless they are shamed

Spot on…one is a thug act and the other is defending his teammate…what a spin!!!

If either of them were on the street they would’ve both been locked up…but Mitchell’s is the true meaning of coward punch because reynolds wasn’t even facing the same way

But you can make an argument LM was defending his teammate. Who was BJ defending when he cheap shotted Edwards?

Mayby Madge has realised that this season is unlikely to go the distance and is trying all his options to see what works best for next year when we will actually have a finals series

I hope not. Abandoning the season when we’re in the top 8 would be pretty poor.

But it would be poetic if it robbed Parra’s best chance of a premiership in 35 years.

Yes good point. Penrith too.

Penrith won’t win it.

@pawsandclaws1 said in Coronavirus Outbreak:

Crossroads outbreak traced by NSW Health to Victoria. A lot of explaining needs to be done about why the border was not shut two or three weeks earlier. Big business interests over safety?

Anyone heard from Alan Joyce about crowding passengers on aircraft?

Might wanna ask @Snake. I thought it was only the states controlled by the lefties that had no clue.
