Will this actually be made official at some point or since Lockyer let the Croft out of the Storm, there is no need now?
The Storm have practically made it official by announcing the resigning of Papenhuyzen 2 days after Locky let the cat out of the bag.

This pretty much confirms my initial thoughts that the Storm’s change of heart about not wanting to chip in was to try and free up as much cash in their cap as possible to start resigning their backline stars before the vultures start swooping.

To our credit, we either called their bluff or we just got lucky and once Melbourne realised we weren’t going to pay full freight, the power of balance had changed hands as they obviously saw Croft as the one they could afford to cash in on to try and free up cap space once Smith had confirmed he was playing on in 2020.

I'm rarely on the hype train but I strongly believe Croft will be one of our better additions in the last decade. We've needed a genuine half-back since Lockyer retired. It's been too long, a proper fucking 7 with a kicking game and some game management who can slot a field goal.

Bring it on. Broncos for premiers 2020.
Absolutely spot on Kimlo. Lovin your enthusiasm and positivity, there should be much more of it here. That 2019 season is in the past, let's not judge the boys too harshly indefinitely and let our hopes for 2020 be stained forever by that 1 dreadful season. The Crofty signing has got me excited now for next year and can't wait for the footy to begin. What will be will be but let's try to be optimistic and give ourselves a chance!

I truly don't mean to offend IBM, I am just tired of being so negative previously after going through the painful season we have just endured. For me, the signing of Croft has really signalled to me a change in direction for the club's fortunes. They have identified a problem and done their best to rectify it. Let's see how it all pans how, I have high hopes for sure.

I see you’re point, but Milford has a certain level of expectations being that he’s a professional athlete who was signed for his agility.
Yeah I understand that but it goes to far imo
I have very high expectations of milf and hope he can get to the level that most have been waiting for, but some of the dribble that comes from some photos of him are borderline pathetic. Hence why I posted the one of seibold.

So you response to childish attacks is to make a childish attack?
