I'm sure most people came to BHQ to have their grammar corrected. Well done.
Thanks Kooly, appreciate the support. Rest assured, I'll keep up the good fight. Funny thing is, Midean didn't seem too hurt by the bad man. He might even have taken it in the spirit intended.

Sure, but we made an offer to him, he just took a better one. As did everyone else on that list...

From what I remember of the story....it was more the way Seibold/Brisbane handled the negotiations with the young Walker that led him to go elsewhere. I think he was a 17 yo and was told he couldn't involve his parents/advisors in the negotiations.....and you have to give us an answer ......now.

If true....it sounds a totally inappropriate way to deal with a "minor".

Yep, no issue with that description of events at all. As I said our recruitment has clearly been inept.

But just because it was a piss-poor effort at signing these blokes, doesn’t mean there wasn’t any, the position taken by the original poster…

I appreciate that people find it hard to believe such treason from the top, and will try and explain everything away as "incompetence" or "coincidence".

As mentioned, how can we have let so many potential match winners go without a fight (Walsh, Fifita, Walker and yes, Deardon) yet have only signed a clapped-out halfback who won't improve from what he's shown.

I've copped it for years from anti-Bronco friends about third-party deals. Apparently they have no attraction any more.
