State of Origin Rep

Agreed Coates situation was worse than Fifita, but the problem comes from the fact that we did offer him decent money to stay, but he left for more (understandably) however the sting comes from leaving after helping us to our first spoon.Not sure why fans have resentment towards Fifita. Titans are clowns and offered him a ridiculous amount of money. He would've be a fool to turn it down. Besides, he was at the end of his contract. Had every right to look elsewhere. He wasn't a pos about it and tried to get out early etc.
The Turncoates saga was worse than Fifita's in my opinion. Rejected our contract renewal and took unders to scurry off to the storm. Pathetic. It's almost poetic that the storms cracks are starting to appear this season. Once Bellamy is gone in a couple years time it'll get worse too. I'm sure they'll still be a top (4'ish) team for the foreseeable future. But will probably never be as dominate as they once were.
Coates, Fifita and Walsh would be viewed entirely differently if they all left when we were at the top of the ladder, but they didnt, they abandoned a sinking ship when the fans and the club were drowning and that is some shit i personally will never forget.
I am happy to take Walsh back because we are getting him on the cheap and he is a gun, but it will take him helping us to a premiership to erase the fact he bailed when we were at our worst, and the same would be applied to Fifita if he returned.
Coates can get fucked though, that traitorous dog went to our worst enemy for LESS money after helping us to a spoon. If he was allowed to come back to the Broncos, i would be a Dolphins supporter the very next day.
