    What I dont understand is when we signed Woods, and maybe Foran, we apparently have to lose Reynolds, Graham, Lichaa, Eastwood, Hopoate, Mbye, Tolman.. blah blah.

    This from a team who nobody rates to get in the top 8, and only a couple of rep players.

    When one of the premiership favourites stacked full of rep players, signs another rep player on a multi million dollar contract, no one bats an eyelid.

    Shits me up the wall

    It's fast becoming the WWE of the codes. Predictable BS penalties. Make up rules as you go along. Blow penalties that haven't been applied since 1917. Taking away home games to Timbuktoo. Changing jerseys every half. Listening to TV commentary that resembles AM talk shows. Picking 18 year olds to represent great club’s from Mickey Mouse 20s competitions. Giving out million dollar contracts to niff nuffs. Ringing bells before Grand Finals. Not being able to recite the NRL promotional campaign because there isn't one. Allowing bitches to fall down and dive because they got nicked by a breeze when they let in a try. Gambling. Beanie days. Ribbon days. Wrist ban days. Extra time. KFC. Tony Archer. Please add.

    For the love of God, Melbourne, sign him to a 10 year contract so that he can never be linked with us again. Absolute circus

    Why in the world would anybody post something like that? It really pisses me off to see a mother holding her kids share with the world her lifestory/problems.
    Seriously, these kind of people don't have any serious/real friends and they think the more followers/"friends" they have in their social media life, the more successful they are. So they look for attention.
    Why doesn't she also post how her sex life is/was with Kieren.
    Am I ranting for nothing or am I making sense?

    He doesn't need to play with Souths in 2019, but to sign with your current clubs biggest rivals more than a year out is a cunt move and totally disrespectful to the fans and club that supported you.

    Obviously a Roosters fan wouldn't understand, you lot just sign whoever the fuck you want, when you want. You also throw your own players under the bus whenever it suits you, just look at Nikorima who conveniently seems to be on a reported 400k now that he's been given the boot. Just perfect, right?

    Maybe you should go back to your own shit forum and talk to the other 4 active members on there. Sick of hearing about your putrid club.

    To be honest it was just so good being able to support a team that actually play a really awesome style of footy again. Forgotten what that feels like supporting the Bulldogs these last 5 years.

    Before any one says it is not bulldogs related, I would like to see how much canberra fans and the club pays for this incident in comparison to our black friday saga.

    i bet you there wouldnt be a peep about it and every one will forget about it by next week, but if it was bulldogs fans , we will be insulted and paraded by all the media outlets for the next 12 months.

    My "onya" for today goes to Hokko (from news.com.au):

    NRL star Trent Hodkinson escorts terminally ill girl Hannah to her school formal
    JULY 20, 20176:40AM
    [​IMG]

    Staff writersFOX SPORTS

    TRENT Hodkinson, take a bow.

    The Newcastle Knights playmaker may not have had the greatest season, having been dropped from first grade for a large part of the year, but he has easily won the feel-good story of 2017.

    On Wednesday night, Hodkinson escorted Hannah, a massive Knights fan, to her school formal.

    Her school, Kurri Kurri High, brought the formal forward from the end of the year to the middle of July because Hannah has terminal Ewing sarcoma — a cancer found in the bones or soft tissue.

    The NRL star rode in the back seat with Hannah on the way to the formal, held her hand as she walked in and even cut a cake at the event in front of everyone else in her year.

    Scandal is never too far from rugby league, so it’s worth noting the great things the code does.

    As we say, Trent, take a bow.

    Absolutely ridiculous. No way in hell this is above board.... obviously.

    They still won't win the comp... haha what a bunch of pathetic, soul deficient cheats!

    So who are they letting go? I'd love to have a super bendy, elastic salary cap like those pricks.

    How stupid does the nrl think we are? It obviously does the club many, many favours.

    The pathetic thing is those tri coloured shitstains still won't win the comp.... just watch the fuckers fall at the last or second last hurdle next year... they have no soul and you don't win premierships without good club culture. Just watch them waste the best and most illegal roster in the nrl by bowing out in the preliminaries. Just a bunch of immoral, cash splashing losers. Maybe even the roosters can win with such an absurd roster... but I doubt it. I really think they roll choke.

    No more premierships for Cronk.

    PS congratulations Cooper, you're now officially a fuckwit and you've signed on to play with a bunch of cheats. Money talks eh? People say he has integrity! Ha! Somehow, I doubt it.

    No way in Hell the roosters can afford him... I'm eagerly awaiting the articles pressuring the club to release players and the threats of Greenberg to not register Cronk's contract...because the NRL and Roosters must think fans are ducking stupid if they expect us to just accept that the roosters can afford an extra million dollar a season superstar. There's just no way. This is absolutely absurd!

    Politis, Greenberg and Cronk are all dishonest twats.

    End rant.

    I hate that fucking club with a passion! Haha.

    Whilst the alleged victim deserves to be heard, Hayne also deserves the presumption of innocence until proven otherwise.

    I do not trust the media, so I will wait to see how things play out.

    Well, well, well. So the Referees boss has told us that the last pass for the match wining Roosters try was forward. Fans at the ground and those watching on the television broadcast knew this at the time but due to the inability of the touch judge ( who Archer says was right there and had a good view of it) to pick it up plus the two referees and the video referee the Roosters were gifted a win that they had no right to have.
    It was more unsettling that the try that Penrith had disallowed, that could have truly put the game out of the reach of the Roosters, was looked at with a fine tooth comb because they could ( and yes it was according to the laws of the game a correct ruling regarding inside the 10 ) yet they still could not check the Roosters one which was blatantly obvious.

    It is well and good to apologize to all for the stuff ups but that does not make a difference to quite a few things, such as the two points Penrith missed out on nor the for and against of both sides.

    I for one am getting heartily sick and tired of apologies after the fact.

    Another thing that grinds my gears is the inability of the video referee to now look at things in general play that also have an effect on the result; strips, touches of the ball, knock ons etc. let alone the fact that they have never been able to adjudicate on forward passes ( although they did so with great effect last year when we became the first, and at the moment, the only team to be denied a try on what could only have been a thought of a forward pass ruling even though that was not the issue according to the referee; my opinion; denial by proxy)

    Yesterday there was another great opportunity for the video ref to alert the on field official that Souths had won a scrum illegally. Trent Hodkinson tells the referee that his decision regarding the scrum win against the feed by Souths and the resultant penalty given has "Cost us the game". That is true. So, for speaking his mind, quite like Cameron Smith or JT does frequently he is singled out for punishment . I did not hear a swear word or a cheating accusation, just a simple comment that was a fact. The scrums are a 'non-contest' and have been for years with no striking for the ball and no pushing in the scrum allowed ; the ball fed by the half back basically between their prop and second rowers feet. HOW on earth can you lose a scrum when the laws of the game dictate their is to be basically no contest?

    It is comforting to know too Mr Archer ,that no matter what a player does on the field by way of foul play, he will not be dismissed from the field for the rest of the game. Burgess and his wayward elbow should have led to his instant dismissal and a date with the judiciary. Why just send him for ten and put him on report? Newcastle scored twice during his absence; that was quite fitting, but why allow Souths to finish the game 13 on 13 without what many would say was really a proper penalty? If that Newcastle player had been put out of the game the only side being penalised would have been Newcastle.

    Sam Burgess was very lucky not to have gone too, for his running a considerable distance to stick up for his grubby brother, which he does frequently. Well and good to stick up for a team mate but why when that team mate is one who has thrown an elbow into an opponents head?

    What is the bet that their will be ANOTHER adjustment to the rules next year that says the video ref has once again the power to rule on things that are now out of his job description this year.

    This whole mess has been caused by the now CEO of the NRL making sure that his precious officials are not actually answerable for errors that they make because they are beyond criticism. Makes any apology given meaningless, as the on field officials continue to get it wrong without the ability of someone who has a mass of technology at his disposal to correct it.

    could be worse......you could have what we did with the Coffs rape scandal that dragged on for months.....only to be proven as made up after the media had lost interest....at least you have Sterlo in the media pushing your case, we just had a heap of has beens (never was) media personalities with chips on their shoulders sinking the boot in at every chance when we got caught over the cap

    not many shoulders to cry in here DB, dogs supporters are raised like Spartans, thrown in to the wilderness as children to survive the spite, venom and stupidity of rival supporters......the weak ones that crumble become Parra & Souths supporters
