Everyone needs to get a grip Madge knows what he’s doing whats the use of chasing LM if he wanted to be here he would be here now.There has been so much BS in regard to LM that it’s smack of double standards he saying Souffs are good to the Indigenous players however to get to Souffs three of his Indigenous brothers have to be shafted go figure remember MADGE HAS A PLAN and if we can get players of 1st grade and SOO standard go for it we have spots to fill in our Cap and there’s not to many options out there and if Souffs are contributing to their contracts happy days and also we are all keyboard warriors not RL Coaches

Another phrase I’m sick of “Madge has a plan”. Every coach has a plan.

Some are better than others

His one isn’t looking too crash hot at the moment though is it?

Hmmm.
I’m also sick of being told to have faith and confidence in our management and coach.
They delivered diddly squat for ten years.
You gotta earn that faith I’m afraid.

I don’t think that’s how faith works

We should go hard for JAC…Again, withdraw Latrell…

You could probably get JAC on a 5 year x 600K deal…

Then go hard for Ryan Papenhyuzen for 2021…probably get him on 500k for 4 years…

Thats 1.1 mil for two quality players…

Storm might even be interested in a player swap with Mbye…

Yeah bring the boys home

I like this idea

Well that just got put to bed very quickly:

Dean Ritchie reporting announcement of Latrell to Tigers in coming days. Approximately $2.7 over 3 seasons.

@tiga4eva Where is he reporting that? My googling has been fruitless so far…

Buy a newspaper.

Well according to another high quality FoxSports news article, the Titans will not win a game until they play the Tigers in round 7:

I feel personally attacked.

Bankrolled by none other than Singo

@Snake Absolutely, he came close to the 53 man roster this season so he would have had a real shot if he stuck around. Big gamble for a young bloke to turn down a 1000% pay rise however…

@cochise Hope not, but would they have mentioned the Magpies if this was going to be about Matulino?

@Madgic said in Great article re Roosters Salary Cap:

@Tiger2135 It’s inevitable that Sydney will stop producing enough talent. Athletes are raised on grass and in sunshine and fresh air, NOT in high rise apartments or in their shadows. There is a swing away from big cities and to the country. Where we live (near Yass, NSW) we are surrounded by tree changers from Sydney who commute to Canberra for public service salaries. Kids who breathe fresh air have a big advantage over those raised on diesel fumes. The Roosters may continue as they are for quite a while but the decline of Sydney clubs is inevitable.

@Madgic
I agree its better for your general health to live away from the city, but to say a kid being raised in a high rise apartment can’t become a professional athlete is ridiculous. How many sports and athletic high schools exist near Yass? How many purpose built, million dollar facilities with thousands of highly trained, professional athletic staff teaching kids the most effective training methods do they have there? Kids in the city have access to all of this, so if anyone is disadvantaged its the kids out in the country.

Yass is a great part of the world, but eventually kids from there with aspirations to become professional athletes will eventually need to move in with a diesel heaving city kid - and the younger they are when they move, the better.
