Re: Gillett and Jack Reed re-sign

I'm pretty new here ... as you can see from the number of posts ... but I've been a fanatical Broncos supporter from day 1 ... watched 'em train before a ball was kicked ... went to the friendlies ... watched that awesome first game against Manly ... but never joined a 'forum' till now.
I have to say that some of the negativity in here is numbing. To post such vitriolic attacks on a team that we all, supposedly, support to the max is mystifying to me. It not only attacks the player in question but it also insults the entire structure of the club. These players have mostly been nurtured by the Broncos since they were kids in an organisation that even Gus Gould finds impressive, so rubbishing the player in effect rubbishes the whole ethos and infrastructure of the club. We live in a so-called democracy and everyone is entitled to their view, I'm just confused as to why some people (thankfully a minority) put themselves through so much angst in the pursuit of something which is supposed to entertain them.

To the rest I say ... thanks for your insightful and well-considered comments.
Welcome and stay around. You have perfectly summed up my thoughts and the thoughts I'm sure of many others. The negativity of a minority are making this forum almost unreadable currently... But everyone is entitled to their opinion i guess...

Re: Gillett and Jack Reed re-sign

Even though I do think the price is pretty good for both (if it's really around 2M), I don't think we should be comparing it to what Idris or Tony Williams or whatever get. They are the exception and everyone knows they aren't worth as much as they get.

Re: Gillett and Jack Reed re-sign

Yes but what it does say is there's nothing to bitch about a first grade centre who has played almost every game for us being paid that salary. I can't remember him being injured. Seriously guys Reed is easily worth 250k and Gillett is easily a 350k player.

As Hook's new and wondrous game plan evolves further, and there will be (hopefully) even more effective set plays which give (or maybe even force) Reed and Gillett the chance to play their natural game, then for mine, each are a bargain

Reed will probably be a one man club, I can't imagine him playing for another club.
both reed and gillett said theyre going to be broncos for life in their press conference for their re-signing. awesome if they pick up their game, not so awesome if they dont.

What's awesome for me is that the last few games seem to show a game plan evolving around team play instead of largely relying on (or rather hoping for) an individual's talent.

The horse seems finally moving before the cart
