He didn't teach our halves anything the last time he was here.

Waste of time.

We don't need to sign a washed up player for more money than he's worth when we can just sign a halves coach that's actually going to teach him something.
We already have Langer, dont we.

Experience is needed on the field, and halves wise he fits the bill. Still got a mean boot on him and still up there with try assists and LB assists. Far from washed up.

He'll come cheap, he's desperate and most importantly will be almost like an assistant coach in terms of training and setting standards.

Badel did,,,


No-one ever said Broncos didn’t have the money for him...

It was said Broncos can’t afford him. We already have one numb-skull with bikie links who causes us massive headaches on and off the field, yet is the sort of talent we DO need on the pitch.

But we certainly don’t have the strong culture needed to manage yet another talented imbecile off the pitch...
We need more Pat Carrigans and less TPJ's and AFB's

I'd agree with that to a point but we've had some good teams with exactly those types of players, going back to the first year with Greg Dowling, on through to the likes of Alan Cann and Tallis and others.
A good coach can temper their rough edges and harness their enthusiasm (anger really) to drive the team when they are getting beaten. That's what's missing though.
I think with the right coach, TPJ could be that player. All that said, it's a tough ask to deal with one of them, let alone go looking for more when the coach hasn't even been signed yet.

TBF, I don’t think Milford can or wants to be taught.

Refused tutelage from Lockyer, so perhaps it’s not the teacher (whoever that may be) who’s the problem, rather the student.

To be fair to Tallis, I think he was a Ned Flanders off the field. Called Wayne crying on an Australian tour because the boys were partying too hard.

What a sook.
I think we might be a bit harsh in judging the ol' raging fool's anger over players crossing the line. He drank just as much as anyone else so I wouldn't say he was a full-blown sook.

He did, after-all, call out Rodney Howe for taking steroids and completely ironed him out on the field to prove a the point that we did not want to see drugs creep into RL culture. If this is sooking I say we need more of it. I still give him browny points for that despite the endless verbal diarrhea he spouts today.

Titans throwing even more money at AFB. Where the **** did Titans get all of this cash all of a sudden?
I mean, we are shedding players, have players retiring, yet apparently we cant afford anyone, but Titans can throw obscene money around and still have plenty left over.
Am i missing something?

Making room to give Milford a bumper 5 year extension.

I think hes doing most of that already. No need to make it official, besides coaching. that's Glenn's job.

I wouldn't have said no but Locky's been pretty adamant he doesn't want to coach, what's to say he'd be any good at teaching Milf? Not everyone who was a good player makes a good coach is a line that gets thrown around a lot.

Let's be honest he is going to the Warriors. Other than Thaiday hoping he heads to the Titans (which he has also said about Grant and that means nothing either), I have seen zero links to the Titans whatsoever except for the "only allowed to talk to QLD clubs and the Warriors" chatter. On that note happy to be proven wrong if you got a link but it would surprise me.

I am sure you can afford players, there is just no-one that adds anything to your squad (or many other squads for that matter) currently off contract. Adding AFB would give you possibly the most expensive prop rotation in the comp. Is that really what you want? Add to that you don't have a coach right now and I doubt they can justify signing a marquee prop the new coach may or may not want. Focus needs to be on the spine.
