    NRL Player Movements & Rumours - 2022

    Agree…Brown got hype before it was deserved assisted by the desperation of the Warriors at the time. Brown is very replaceable imo. Waqa Blake as well, reportedly on 500k+ could be replaced by someone on half that.

    Dangerous blanket theory, i guess Hancock/Carne/Sailor/Tuqiri were carried by Langer and Lazarus/Webke? Not the point anyway, Winterstein doesnt belong in the same company as Copley/Kahu/Hoffman for mine who also had the opportunity to shine with good players around them but never managed it on...

    Bit harsh on Winterstein in that list, he ended up having a pretty enviable career, 2 GF's with 1 win, world club challenge win, over 200 games and retired due to injury as opposed to be forced out or not renewed...guessing he is pretty fondly remembered by Cow fans vs. the other 3 in the list...

    NRL Player Movements & Rumours - 2022

    Another reason as to why I am not sure they should be persisting with BA as head coach. He is not terrible but doesn't seem to get players to sacrifice ~50k to 'keep the band together' and he isn't strong enough to influence the Eels management team when they need it. 600k for Mahoney seems on...

    If Dobbo is on the money you would think it would have to be 1 of Smith or Paulo or both to warrant as being "very favourable". If Dolphins were waiting out Paulo's cooling off period they might be a bit nervous now that parra have scope to throw more money at him... Isaako would eventually be...

    OFFICIAL Patrick Carrigan re-signs

    The Cows have definitely been one of the clubs responsible for inflating ordinary players salaries which all teams eventually suffer from. Holmes at least got them publicity but is worth half that amount and the Townsend ( i read 800k per year) and Leilua deals are mental. Luckily i hate the...

    Agree, yeah they paid overs but they had to. Now they got him playing finals vs. his old club languishing in the bottom 4. Next contract he will be offered less but unless anyone else is willing to stump up $1M he would need another reason to leave and i guess the Titans are hoping he is...

    NEWS Reece Walsh sells his soul to Warriors. No big deal.

    I don't think anyone has said they are role models, that's got nothing to do with the discussed issue.

    Fair enough, I respect your opinion. To me though, who likes to watch every game live if possible, I have fox sports (whether that be Foxtel or Kayo) and that has been the same for over a decade and will be the same next year. It’s a noble gesture to say go to the game live (a family of 4 to...

    NEWS Reece Walsh sells his soul to Warriors. No big deal.

    No, I don’t think it is as clear cut as that and of course I am only guessing as never seen a footballers contract. The fact they are now kitted up in team gear and paraded around as ambassador’s or representatives of the club away from the field of play makes me believe that there is some...

    All good huge…I totally agree they are not role models.

    NEWS Reece Walsh sells his soul to Warriors. No big deal.

    I actually made the point to say they are not role models if you bothered to read my posts so not sure a lot of your post is relevant in a reply to me. Nice leap from your statement of measuring up to a God like status vs. not being caught on video with drug vibes but I guess exaggeration comes...

    NEWS Reece Walsh sells his soul to Warriors. No big deal.

    Of course celebrities also do the same sort of work, they are also building their brand. Non sports celebrities get dropped by their sponsors/brands often which means they stopped getting paid by said companies. Chris Brown, Kate Moss and such celebrities have lost endorsement deal, difference...

    Rank every bottom 8 teams recruitment

    Will be a real interesting subplot next year to see what happens with Coates. Does Bellamy still have the magic dust to sprinkle on the likes of Coates when the cultural foundations set by Cronk, Slater and Smith are starting to fade and the new brigade like Munster and Smith not setting the...

    NEWS Reece Walsh sells his soul to Warriors. No big deal.

    No one has to. Surely you admit that a professional sportsperson who represents a team is a unique occupation? Its already been established that other sports treat their employees the same way. Do you ever see players kitted out in club gear visiting a hospital, going to a sponsored dinner...

    NEWS Reece Walsh sells his soul to Warriors. No big deal.

    Think of it this way...part of their pay is to perform on field, part of their pay is being an ambassador of the club. This doesn't mean role model or having to help old ladies cross the street. It means that as part of their employment they are meant to uphold the brand of the club they are at...

    You are asking fans to not spend $25 a month to watch their favourite sport? The price of a large coffee a week to not be able to watch their team play + the magazine/nrl themed shows available, let alone any other sport on display they may be interested in. I don't have Kayo as i watch through...

    Yeah its a good list but i'm not as high on Walker or Walsh yet but due to their positions they would certainly be in the conversation. For me the choice between Cleary and Grant would change whether had a total blank slate (they were the first signing) or you had a team and they were fitting...

    Experience isn't that relative on the original claim about choosing one young player to build your team around saying it's not even close between Grant and anyone else. You weren't talking about a then 20 year old Cleary vs. a current 23 year old Grant. It's who you would choose to build a team...
