    200k would be a small price to pay. Literally anyone in our squad at fb would be better than Boyd right now. Let's just revolutionise the game and put Haas there. Imagine trying to tackle that bastard with a 20-30m runup.

    Could well be worth it. Thing i worry about is they could pick up Jimmy and Boyd.

    Souths won't take Boyd, even with Wayne as coach. He may have close personal connections, but he also isn't stupid. If he has been keeping up with the Broncos at all this year, he knows which way the wind is blowing for Boyd, and it's blowing like a gale straight down retirement boulevard/Super League Avenue, and Bennett has already had to see off one busted ass dead weight this week.

    I'm still supportive of Boyd and happy for him to keep playing where he is. I do acknowledge he hasn't been brilliant this season but I believe his performances will improve. He has been good in patches and I don't think he's a pea heart or deserving of some of the over the top criticism. I think he's close and I've still got faith that he's the best we've got for the position. We need Milford and McCullough to improve and both of these guys have improvement left in them. I'd like to see McCullough back himself more and finally demand that he call a play and organise one every now and then.

  4. The bolded bit...

    Put the bottle back on the fridge & go to bed.
    Inglis deserves better than that.

    ..or giving your missus a couple of black eyes. Never really liked Inglis, just appreciated what he did for QLD. Kind of like Michael Jackson, liked his music but the guy himself was a creep.

    He didn't sign anything so he didn't really **** the Broncos over. He decided that Souths would be a better option than playing under Ivan Henjak. A pretty smart career move if you ask me.

    (IMO) Regardless of any 'league era' Greg has been an outstanding 'genuine' footballer.

    I'm going to miss that.

    My science... that would be a spectacle.

  12. If we subsidize Jimmy's contract so he can join Souths then management need to give themselves an uppercut.
     
  13. Why wouldn’t he? Would any of us, not in his shoes? But there is zero evidence to suggest the Titans offer was the only big money on the table, precisely because we made a play at him. I’d suggest other clubs probably did too.

    But regardless of that, the fact is he stayed with the club that gave him a chance to play NRL and I imagine he would if we had given him that chance too. But we released him in favour of no-one.
     
  14. If anyone involved directly in the NRL doesn’t understand by now that Origin and Australian halfbacks (/hookers) aren’t commanding a million a year or close to it, then they simply aren’t following the game very closely, so I’m not sure I care too much what they think contract prices ‘are’ or ‘should be.’

    Whatever they may have been back in the day, is irrelevant. I would have thought Wayne would have learnt that
    lesson with Petero and given the money spent on Haas it seems he has, but when it comes to origin and international representative halfbacks, who aren’t exactly thick on the ground, compared to say junior props, it’s still a surprise they are attracting a million a year, bids? THAT is why I said ‘please’. It wasn’t specifically directed at you, but more towards the idea that a Qld / Australian halfback / hooker, WOULDN’T be attracting that sort of offer.

    Sorry, that is downright idiotic and if that was Bennett’s line of thought, then that is one more reason I am glad he is gone, because he is clearly, completely out of touch.

    I’m as big a fan of Gutho as anyone but if we have any cash for a big name signing to fix our current issues, he isn’t the best idea. If we already had someone organising the attack, he would be great to have as the last piece of the puzzle but we still really need an organiser at halfback or hooker. And all of Gutho’s positive attitude won’t fix that.

    I would throw the bank at Luke Keary if he became available. He always wanted to be a Bronco, and he could be a Bronco legend. He comes off contract about the same time as Boyd.

    If he does complete his contract here I hope it’s behind a desk and not on a football field.
