State of Origin Captain
The gap between league's haves and have-nots is growing – and it's a real problem for the game's governing bodies.
It's a freebee article, so enjoy:
I have to admit, this problem is becoming more apparent than ever. It's pretty much impossible for perennial bottom dwellers like the Titans, Tigers and others to claw their way back up the ladder if they can't build a squad that they want without some bozo with some cap to throw around kicking the door in and stealing their lunch.
However, when it comes to making your club appealing to players, not only to sign them but to retain them long term as well, that is on the club. If you're running such a tinpot organization that even a League footballer with an I.Q of 80 can see they're buying in to a leaky boat, no amount of whinging is going to change their perception or anyone else's and all of a sudden, your club failing becomes a self fulfilling prophecy, which is exactly the dire future that the Titans are staring down the barrel of.
