THE Broncos club has undergone a $6 million revamp featuring state-of-the-art technology.

Keeping on brand, the Broncos home club has been renovated with fresh Maroon and Gold colours with interiors paying homage to the ‘Queenslander’ homes in Red Hill. Interior designer Hannah Teitzel said sustainable timber was used in the Gaming Lounge and polished stone veined with maroon and gold featured in the newly decked Reception. Broncos star Jack Bird is very excited about his club’s newly minted facilities. Hi-tech touch-activated bathroom solutions will allow the club to monitor its use of water in real-time – a first for an Australian club.

“The club is committed to essential services monitoring and awareness of the environment by engaging in sustainable measures,” a Brisbane Broncos spokesman said. The Gaming Lounge was also relocated as part of the refurbishment. CEO of The Broncos Club Joe Kelly said the room’s repositioning has some historical relevance for Broncos fans. “It is now positioned in the Club’s old auditorium which was a popular meeting place for the base of Broncos fans that emerge as far back as the early 1990s,” Mr Kelly said.

Only thing I’m interested in is how will all these Reno’s improve our on field performances?
Might make them eat less maccas? Although, that's unlikely. The boys must be devoed to not be getting those 19+ point games every week and missing out on their broncos burgers.

The players didn't even need to score 19+ points that was just for us plebs to get a cheap feed. They had a $20 a day card to spend at Maccas win loss or draw. How that wasn't seen as a problem by the coaches or administration is beyond me, but from what I've heard, Seibold brought an end to it.

Has this ever been actually proven?

Well I would have been happy to help out and take a card off them.

It's totally true, except it's not a $20 a day card, it's a $20 per store per day card. If i dared to impersonate one of our ex players, I could actually use it!

And it wasn't Seibold who ended the cards, it was decided before they came back in pre season they were being scrapped. Any players who still have one can use it for 2019 though.

I'm not sure how I could tbh without getting into trouble with them. It was defiantly a thing though. I can remember Matty Johns talking about them having it on Triple M I think it was.

Does Maccas still give free food to cops in uniform? The one right in the guts of the Queen Street Mall where the Australian Hotel used to be, did.

I recently read an article praises Hasler’s genius way of getting Suli down to playing weight. He would organise all those kids meals and have them delivered to him.

All I thought was “how the **** aren’t every club already doing this?”. I always assumed this was common practice. Rugby league really is amateur in the world of sport at times.

I'm not sure it was ever "free" but as I understood it when I worked there it was a 50% discount to any uniform officer. Essentially a cheap way for them to have security.

Matty Johns picked it up from whatever germalists picked it up off reddit where it was posted after (IIRC) you first mentioned it here. Loose ships sink ships burn the boats.

I wouldn't have believed anyone would pick anything up from somewhere like this, but after the Mole was using DOD I guess anything's possible.
