Cronulla, Warriors & Bulldogs, Titans, Dragons, Knights, Broncos, Panthers = bottom 8

no, yes, yes, yes, yes,yes,yes, no, no.

Starts & finishes eh

I particularly fear Brisbane may be right up there next season. Them and Parramatta. A JAC type would make a massive difference to our place on the table. Not only with his ability, but team belief and harmony too. As good as Matto was on the field, I can’t help but think that his attitude last year couldn’t have helped our chances in the end. How good would it be to be above the middle of the table for once? I’m not sure how close Madge is to Bellyache, but I’m hoping there’s something between them given their history that will allow them to enable a switch for Josh to us. I think we’ll be bottom 8 for another season at this point.

@stevied said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

Just wondering what people make of all these rumours. Obviously, this thread is built on rumour and innuendo - it’s title confirms that but…I have to ask the question - where do the various gossip merchants get their information from? New Smoking Gun is supposed to have had a link with the club via previous work as a statistician (sorry NSG, did I get that right?) Some posters have mentioned having a mate who had direct contact with the brother/wife of a player or otherwise they worked with someone who was mates with an employee of the club, blah, blah, blah…whatever, but am I the only person getting tired of these rumours that, in most cases, turn out to be total garbage…?

This might sound naive, but are some of our ‘insiders’ just making it up to attract attention to themselves? I’m not a fan of this at all and if there was a chance of nailing the culprits I’d recommend banning them from the thread.

Now, before someone says, ‘stop reading the comments bucko’, can I just say that there is a difference between reporting authentic comments or developments and just making it up. Also, is there a reason why most of our informants don’t reveal their sources or how they might be connected? There seems to be more jokers than ever who seem to love making definitive statements eg ‘Latrell and JAC are a done deal and it will be confirmed next week’. Crap!

So far we’ve had rumours of us being close to nabbing AJ Brimson, Zac Lomax and Jai Arrow. Then there was Latrell, being a dead certainty, door still open to him, AJ to be announced as a signing at the end of last week, JAC considering an offer of 2.1 million…Who have I forgotten? What a load of crap! It’d be great if people could keep to the facts and stop pretending to be genuine insiders with the edge on everyone else!

Don’t get me wrong, I love reading about possible signings like everyone else, and I lsee myself as an optimist, but is there anyone else getting tired of all the bullshit being slung around?

Anyway, I really hope we get JAC (much more than Latrell). I’d also be happy with AJ at the right price, in other words for 450k or less and let him and Thompson fight it out for the fullback spot. Dunno about Arrow - if we were genuinely in the running, would he be worth the big bikkies we’d have to shell out?

Before I go, does anyone have any CONCRETE news about any of the above?

Sorry for the diatribe!

No - dont think so.

Really, heading towards 400 pages on this topic is getting kinda crazy. For Heavens sake Latrell, put us out of our misery.

JAC needs to come home.

With a thousand fires burning the joint down all over the place currently, and the holidays upon us, are there any significant problem areas that should be avoided out there? I’m heading from the Gold Coast to Far South Coast of NSW and am assuming things are all clear at this point. I know a week or two back there were major problems around Batemans Bay and currently North of Sydney but if anyone knows of problem areas that can be avoided, it would be much appreciated.

I live in Tahmoor, so in the south-west and we neighbour Bargo, Buxton, Couridjah, Balmoral etc. it’s like ground zero at the moment. yesterday there were cars backed up in both directions trying to evacuate until the roads were closed. there’s choppers and planes flying over our head at any given moment, and the smoke haze and the red glow is so very close. the firies haven’t slept in days and are doing a fantastic job, and it’s a credit to them plenty of homes have been saved. we aren’t in an area at this point that isn’t in any serious danger, but as you guys can probably work out it can all change in a second. long summer coming up

Take care. The only thing that can be done at this point to halt the widespread devastation is rain and a good amount of it.

I am not going to get political with blame at this point and certainly not in this thread, though will make one observation. That being, that there needs to be an instant sizable injection of federal monies to further fund these efforts, with an immediate one off bonus centrelink payment similar to farmer’s or fire affected ones, paid to each and every one of the volunteers. They can dot the i’s and cross the t’s later as the fire season has already been as long as usual, yet we are only 3 weeks into summer.

Whilst I whole heartedly agree, I wouldn’t hold my breath if I was you.

I would give the firefighters tax relief…without them, volunteers or not, the whole bloody place would burn

Again, I agree. But for someone that doesn’t earn a great deal but is knees deep in burning ash right now, it’s hardly reward. Probably the wrong time and thread for a discussion such as this one.

you are spot on, but the conversation has to start somewhere.

I am rusted on lib…but morrison’s response to all this has been less than deserving of these brave people giving up everything to protect others.

I’m of the opposite persuasion, but would feel just as filthy had it been one of the lefts “fearless” leaders. It sickens me when people (pollies in particular) are so uncaring. Those bastards themselves should don the aparatus and walk into the flames to get a taste of what the volunteers are up against.

Unfortunately, that’s a pretty bog average list all things considered.
