How people’s views change in a week. This truely is a three minute noodle kinda forum, but I love it. Hopefully it won’t change again next week.

Poor Keith. He scores a record equaling 4 tries and still cops flack on here.

Well played Mr Lulia. You did your job very well.

Last year was a write off for him. Wasn’t his team and too much rubbish from past years. This year we are seeing more his style. What troubles me is the total lack of attacking skill. He has spoken about “earning the right to do the fancy stuff”. Methinks that is not working. Players look lost in attack and tries mostly come from a kick, a barge over, or a movement close to the line. They seem to crowd each other and movement out wide is slow. Given the position on the ladder and the atrocious for and against it may be time to stop “earning the right” and have a damn go. Might be the only thing that can save Potter’s job.

Mayer can’t win!!! People complain when no information comes from the club, and complain when some info comes from the club. An article appears in some dodgy newspaper, and instead of sitting back he responds with a statement explaining the clubs position. Yeah, he didn’t give too much away, but he did respond. I’m actually glad he is more active in engaging with supporters.

And as for leaks, journos are looking for any rubbish angle, and are not beyond fabricating stories based on the old “I heard it from a mate who is the uncle of a bloke who works for the company that makes the ballboys socks” kinda whispers. Every club cops it, not just ours.

Heard that story first hand from someone associated with the dealings. Last meeting before end of season break. He was off contract and made every indication he was re-signing. Wayne Pearce even gave him some notes/info about off season training/expectations. Morrison said goodbye to Wayne, still giving no indication he was leaving. About an hour later Morrison’s manager rings to say he had signed with Norths. And there was something about him going to a better club which got people’s noses out of joint.

The whole concept will interfere with the overall integrity of the forum.

And Milky might be right on the club’s attitude.

@genoshan:

@owley girl:

No moderation and this site will get shut down pretty quick, even with the “Special Adult Section” that you have suggested. Slander, liable and untruths will always be an litigious issue no matter where you put it on the site.

But if you blokes do go ahead with such a thing, may I suggest you forego 'The Sin Bin" as a name and just call it what it really is…“The W#nking Booth”.

Seems we have new idiot on the forums. Perhaps one the people previously banned making a comeback pretending to be a girl.

Anyway, many forums sites have a less moderated area, certain rules always apply such as racist comments, certain offensive language etc … Perhaps some ‘dinosaurs’ as you put it might come out of the woodwork but a forum board is meant for healthy discussions and varying viewpoints.

This is purely a suggestion that seems to have merit.

I’ve been an “idiot” on here for many a year genoshan. I just don’t agree there should be part of this forum where “dumbing down” will be the norm. And yes, I am on a football forum so I expect somewhat robust discussions to a level where eyebrows are raised, and I certainly don’t mind a textual stoush, but I think what you are suggesting will be a minefield for the mods and not a good look for the club when so many divisions are clearly evident.

Oh no. Damn you Halatau!!! You are looking forward to playing at Leichhardt!!!

Cue another Balmain vs Wests arguement.

Dudes…seriously. The journo needed an angle for a story and went with that. If it was some bloke called Jayden Donnelly or Brayden Dorahy he may have mentioned Wests. Who cares.

Why does every mention of Balmain or Wests become a slanging match.

Could you all just grow up!!!

I’m surprised by the number of people who say he shouldn’t be sacked!!! Was what he did such a disgraceful act??? Of course not, just a bloke being stupid, and not worth the outrage it has generated in social media. But Todd would have had the consequences clearly laid out to him. The game has become so saccarine sweet and precious and will not tolerate such an action. Is that right or wrong? Don’t matter, it’s the way it is. Todd would have known that. He would have known straight away he would have been sacked. So would have all his team mates. Like I say, it was just a stupid lark, but everyone knows the NRL won’t tolerate such action. And let’s face it, he has had plenty of chances.

The offensive thing in the whole matter will be if another team is allowed to sign him. Cronulla shouldn’t be punished while another team profits from his undoubted talents.

PS. His mate is a total knob.

Has Fulton offically been ruled out for the year???

Of course it’s salary cap related, but the club would not have let those three go if they thought they were in the first grade plans. Murdoch and T were now have an opportunity to secure something better for themselves at other clubs/codes, as will Koroibete as he is obviously down the winger pecking order (for whatever reason). Same as when we picked up Lodge and Santi. Good luck to them all. The salary cap can be an evil and complicated beast, but I’m glad it’s there for the sake of all the poorer clubs like ours.

You are always going to be penalised more when you are constantly defending. Also, Souths players were constantly driving into the tackler when rising from the ground and trying to pull penalties. Happened to Blair twice. I was more upset with the drop balls, dumb kicks, over the sideline tackles, and the total lack of creativity in attack. It’s been a problem all year. If you don’t score points you don’t put pressure on the opposition.

@owley girl:

Leave Milky alone. His optimism is one of the best things on this forum.

I agree. I normally love his posts. This one wasnt one of them.

He needs to harden up a bit though.

Harden Up??? He never shirks from an online stoush!!! And unlike many others he usually handles any criticism with polite good humour devoid of nasty derision.

“Only Anasta can throw up such a whole-hearted effort with such a dud result. Nobody can question his effort, but it is a special kind of “special” to take such a spectacular catch and then land on your head”

Wow, that’s harsh on Anasta!!!
