Just abolish the salary cap
Survival of the richest !

As evidenced by the current situation, abolishing the cap isn’t necessary. It is already survival of the richest.

Wow this is enjoyable to watch!

Glorious!

I can’t believe people can just instantly drop state allegiance and possibly even local area allegiance and barrack for the Victorian scum team full of Queenslanders!

I show Ivan Cleary the same allegiance he showed Wests Tigers, zero.
Loving every second of the purple rain.

If Cleary wasn’t their coach you’d be all for Penrith. One person doesn’t make the team, coach or not. The bitterness of Wests Tigers supporters is sad.

Nup! Stuff Ivan!

Take this points system dribble elsewhere

It doesn’t have to be a points system
A market value would be fare
And this would only need to be used when a player is looking at changing clubs not being re signed at his existing club

I have said it many times before
If a player is worth an average of $1,000,000 on the open market, then that is what should and must come off the clubs cap that signs him
That club can pay him $200,000 for all I care
But his market value must come off the allocated cap
That is the only way that we will achieve a fair and even competition
You can not rort a system like that
It stops clubs from stacking talent which is the cause of a lop sided competition

Too east to manipulate.

Is this a Freudian slip?

Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but.

If JAC is like his friend and good mate Dogshot Mitchell, then JAC has got no problems with Mitchell’s playing us like chumps last year, and JAC would then have no trouble in playing us like chumps now.

But maybe JAC is the better man. Maybe he saw the way his friend acted, and knowing about Mitchell’s advisors and family and responsibilities, he thought Mitchell did the best he could. And now JAC himself will show him how to stand up and treat people with respect.

Or maybe JAC knows his window of opportunity in this game is limited, and he knows now is the moment he is at his best and this is his best opportunity to set himself up for his whole life.

I hope we joins us and becomes an even better player.

The thing is our perception of the truth is filtered by media crap. Mitchell didn’t play us at all. We approached him, had a conversation, realised it was a non event and we moved on as did Mitchell. That’s what happened. I don’t know much but I know that to be true. Everything else was garbage written by media fools. I didn’t know this at the tome and was beside myself with stress!
The lesson learned was that we cannot take ANY comfort or angst from what the media spin. It’s all crap.
Maybe JAC will sign, maybe he won’t, maybe it’s already done. I don’t know.
What I’m becoming more confident in is that we are conducting ourselves professionally in attempting to recruit good players. It’s hard because our infield performances have been poor for years. Chicken and egg!
Personally I’m not confident we’ll get JAC but like nearly all of us (despite what some egos would have you believe) I really have no idea

I’m hoping we get him. Hope being the primary word.

I reckon within next week we will know as Freddy has openly criticised ongoing contract negotiations before origin

Is it just me or does Fitler seem to have caught Goulds thinks he is more important than what he is thing

I used to like Freddie and his attitude, but now, Yes he is becoming Gould 2 and full of himself.

Maybe we can invest in a sprints coach. Not just for JAC but for all our other backs. Money well spent imo.

Melbourne’s current Sprint and fitness coach used to be at the Tigers during Taylor’s reign

He probably left during Taylor’s reign.

Whats happened to Joe Wehbe …has he whisperered his way to anonymity

in the media today saying he has a bunch of players he works with - Tesedco pays him $5K a month so I assume he’s going ok

That’s a lot of whispering for $5k per month… wonder what other services he is providing?

His “Lucky Goodtime Whispering Parlor” has an extensive menu.

You can request special Happy Ending whisper.

Penrith will be hard to toss, but who knows, it wouldn’t be the first time that a week off has taken the wind out of teams’ sails.
I always thought I hated Souths but these days it’s a ‘no contest’ when it comes to games against Penrith. Go the bunnies.

The Bunnies can’t win. If penrith fall too far behind, Voldemort will summon the dementors.

This went over my head.

Not a Harry Potter fan? Me neither, but my kids are.
