Yep, it is why I can't get my head around people that claim there is no negative agenda from the media towards us. It is real and they aren't even being subtle about it anymore.I really don't watch NRL360 anymore, but I have tuned in a few times this year, after we managed to win. Thought it might be nice to hear them say something nice about the Broncos. Same thing has happened. Game not even mentioned. It's actually staggering.
Yeah somehow Slothfield is the most reasonable person on that show. Says a lot really.I actually don’t mind Rothfield, he is fun to listen to. He doesn’t always say things I agree with but he does back it up with reasons generally and calls out the other male idiots on that show. I think Yvonne’s problem is she’s just boring in that she tries to overhype everything and it sounds monotonous.
I don’t even watch but I like rothfield a lot more than I did a few years back. I’m thinking it’s because he looks great next to someone like Kent.I actually don’t mind Rothfield, he is fun to listen to.

Yeah the impression I used to get was that Kent just desperately wishes he was a somebody. Needs someone close to him to tell him that he’s really not that important.Kent is a Phil Gould wannabe and Hooper is like that little kid trying to be tough by agreeing with everything the loudest bully says all the time.
It was hilarious the other week when Hooper actually disagreed with Kent, it felt so forced and he looked so uncomfortable, I would imagine it came with a direction from upstairs to be more 'controversial'.
FMD. Can Vlandiddly suck off Tripp any harder.say whatever you want about the NRL ... but they certainly don't like to hide their corruption.
Kunt reporting that the Storm (via Tripp) are trying to buy the GF and host it at the MCG
Matt Trip says:
“There could be a way we buy the grand final this year, if there is a number,” Tripp said on Tuesday.
“If there is a way we can give the NRL comfort, if it is played down here, we will look at it,” he said.
“It’s all a conversation worth having.
“From my perspective I would love the game to be in Melbourne.”
the NRL's LORD and SAVIOUR, Peter Vlandys says:
“I have the utmost respect for Matt Tripp so naturally we would look at it, he’s a brilliant mind,” V’landys said.
The game has always been staged by the governing body in partnership with the venues.
“We’ve got to be agile so we’re open to anything,” V’landys said.
“Whatever returns the most for the game, we’ll look at.”
Vlando thinking... "they don't want the NSWRL grand final... why the **** not... let's go with Brisbane 2.0 and 3.0!!!"Smart move by Qld and really, if Vlandys was smart (he isn't), he would see this is a MASSIVE red flag. League heartland DOES NOT WANT THE LEAGUE GRAND FINAL. Wow, this should be extremely alarming.
It would be a stupid decision by NSWRL... It would get lost amongst all the news of the AFL grand final and Queensland is already losing interest with basically the whole top 8 filled with Shitney teams and a Melbourne team that is despisedReally don't care if the GF is in Brisbane, Melbourne can **** off and win somewhere else.
thinks it looks fairly accurate, i believe min wage this year is 115k thoThe Price Is Right: Melbourne Storm 2021 Edition

Bold is from the Rich 100 list or similar reports. I'm also not including the 10% discount so that gives me a 600,000 wriggle room which for a lot of those depth players would come into play. Considering a few of those would come under the development deals and not be included in the NRL cap that could be less.
A lot of those deals seem fair enough considering when they were signed. Papenhuyzen was during the 2019/20 off-season after a fairly slow start to his stint at Melbourne. Addo-Carr re-signed mid-2017 before he played Origin or won a premiership and that's a decent contract for a good club winger.
Brandon Smith is still on the deal he signed in 2017 when he was a reserve grader, that was their version of a Payne Haas except Melbourne weren't bidding against every club in the competition.
