Tigers need a winger. Nek minute tigers sign a representative winger. Oh why did we sign him, he is too tall and too strong but soooo slow.
Give it up guys! Great signing , well done to all involved.
Sharks forum saying they are having discussions with mbye
Sharks always sign duds
Imagine they are reading the forum
How good is mbye, what a gun , he would take sharks to the next level .
Let’s not kid ourselves , if that announcement today was for him joining the tigers we would all be doing high fives and dancing on the streets. I’ve been told by someone very close to the bulldogs that over 4 years there was about $600k difference in our offer of guaranteed money . Our bonuses would have brought him another $400k but he would have had to play fullback to get it. So our JAC took the guarantee rather then the challenge. Good luck to him. Hope he stinks at the dogs lol.
This is the dilemma we have. The stars of our game don’t want to get out of their comfort zone to come and help a club be successful. It’s happening all over the world and in the NBA for example you are getting stacked teams of 3 or 4 superstars who want to win the easy way. This leads to realistically only 3 or 4 teams who can win a premiership. You don’t come here to play finals or win premierships. Extra $$$$ doesnt seem to work. So it’s do what we are doing, identify the best juniors, players from PNG, players standing out in the super league. Then once you have success players will want to come here to win and you become a destination.
I’m not sure our signings are going so well that we can laugh at other teams.
I would disagree. Laurie has been a gun and will only get better. Stefano has been amazing. These guys are pretty much rookies and will only get better. Joe O is starting to find his feet. James tamou and roberts have been disappointing but they aren’t on big coin. I still think roberts will be a very good player for us.
Clubs have ‘informal’ chats with managers all the time. Look how many players break contract and move to other clubs on big deals. The manager isn’t going to report the subject club for offering their player big money
Broncos just getting on the front foot to make sure their best player is happy …common sense really
@AnonTiger dint waste your time mate these people are jealous for some reason
Jealous wouldn’t be the word…
@Demps can you and your boyfriend leave me alone please. I hope you guys are not MODS
Mate …did you read all your predictions on YOUR OWN PAGE …that were wrong …I don’t care that you were wrong …but OWN it …be a man …be accountible
Confused why you and others don’t have the same attitude to the inside information we get from some of the other regular posters on here which has been sooo wrong lately . You guys are acting like bullies and I’m surprised the mods don’t get involved . I know it’s the boys club and all but most on here like getting inside information whether it eventuates or not. If you don’t like it, move along and go bully someone else.
Has their been a halfback in the game who hasn’t t led his team to finals yet still be playing for the same team for as long as brooks has. Must be a world record of some sort.
Emma McKeon’s got nothin on him.
Luke brooks , gold gold gold. World record holder . 500 games as the quarterback of our team with no finals. Legend.
MMMM, in Brooks hour of need where is the Luke Brooks Liberation Army? (LBLA thanks hobbo 1) Missing in action just like he was. Just like he always is. The LBLA should declare that they are either related to him or live in the same street.The only possible reason.
They wait for the 1 game in 4 where he has a good game.
And by “good” game, a not complete crap game, but still only average.
The LBA are all over the get rid of madge argument. But go all so quiet on brooks. Same story every year. We have a chance to make a run at finals. We all wait for our amazing half to stand up and as usual MIA. Enough is enough. It’s a massive problem when the best game you played was your debut and ten years later you still can’t better it.
Ever since Maguire came in, Brooks has played probably his 3 worst seasons of his career. Lament Cleary all you want but he had Brooks firing in 2018 as he has done with his son the last 2 seasons. The Brooks/Maguire combination should finish up sooner rather than later
Remind us how we finished that year that Brooks was firing?
What the? I don’t understand this cap stuff…. Surely the nrl keeps some sort of eye over caps…? Fair enough if it’s under the table and hidden from them but 1mil over? Sure there is a red flag and they say hey, you can’t do that…. As they did with the Farah after playing job debacle??
Didn’t we cop a few hundred thousand of our cap the following year? Do the broncos operate under a different rule set?
We need to build this side around Stefano, Laurie and Doueihi. I think Blore will start to shine and happy with the output of Joffa. We have some talent coming through - Simpkins and Simpkin will be NRL mainstays. The rest can move on as far as I’m concerned.
Agree. And don’t pay overs for has beens. Keep finding gems and build a young team together. And find them a coach that understands the current game.
I don’t care if he’s 70, I’d take Sheens at 100 years old over our current coach, even if he was dead.
Lol just sit him on a chair on the top of a car and head for Qld
I’d take a rotting corpse in a casket at this point
The players would get a better motivational speech at halftime.
What about your main man brooks? Even us madge supporters are getting cold on him, but curious on your thoughts about brooks?
This is all on the coach and no one else. You can’t expect a dummy half to play 80 minutes effectively in this new fast tempo. Simpkins has to be on the bench. If nikorima changed the game by coming on then surely madge can see that. If our number 9 is there when joffa plays the ball, he scores untouched.
