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

He does these every week. Goes into a lot of detail about why LM vs BJ grading different.

Not saying I agree but have a look. It’s quite early in the video

I can’t stomach to watch it, Annesley is as convincing as Donald Trump.

Would you like to be the spin doctor for the NRL, every week you have to front the media and lie through you back teeth and try and convince everyone that what they saw did not really happen.
Mind you Annesley is your man for the job, talks the BS better than most

Be very surprised if we are not back to lockdown mode within two weeks. The spread is starting to get some speed up here in NSW and I really don’t know how the can pull it back without a lockdown. Without a vaccine and that is probably a year away at best we are going to be in and out of lockdowns for ages.

They all ride us so it doesn’t really matter. Matt Chechin is the only one who seems to ref both sides. Sutton and Klein are at the bottom of the barrel

Just read 5 pages trying to catch up on any news, not one rumour or signings, 5 pages basically debating what half we need. Sure we need a half, but a goal kicker and a few backs who can run would also help

Surely we make a play at CHN makes a lot of sense for us. A lot of other clubs need back rowers too though hopefully the bloke who said CHN wants to come here is right

We could take him this year, some clubs couldn’t

Good point. You’d think we’d be in a position to offer more than Canberra for sure.

They did get cap compensation for Bateman and we’ve only got Thompson’s money so probably about even

I think we have more than Thompsons money, he wasn’t on minimum wage, Blore come in on minimum wage, so there was some fat already there

I think the Raiders also released a player to the Warriors. Anyway you would think if your a Sydney boy we would have a advantage over the Raiders, in saying that Canberra is not a bad place to hide and keep a low profile

Nothing stopping us from doing a Latrell, offering a one year deal for this year at reduced coin while a second contract is sitting in the desk signed and sealed for next year and beyond on juicy coin

I am not surprised one bit with the call by the NRL, it is what I have come to expect. What really annoy me is the way the media cover it. BJ is shamed by everyone in the media, but Latrell no one says boo. Now if the media came out and actually said what a farce the call was and made a big deal out of it the NRL might actually do something next time. Imagine if Latrell had smacked Luke Keary with a high shot off the ball…all hell would have erupted.

Can’t see the grub hanging in for another season if a ESL club make him a good offer so that may free a up a large chunk of cap space, although you would think we still would carry some of the coin. As for Packer, can’t see him going anywhere till his contract expires. Of course the bottom line, you can have a massive war chest but it’s another thing getting quality players to take some of the money you have on offer
