I don’t mind that Talakai from Sharks from what I saw against the Broncos. Can play back row or centre. He’d be one I’d be asking a question about.
basically, I’d be putting feelers out for the following:
9. Smith, McInnes, Clarke
6. Burton - the end!
Prop - Hetherington, Welch. Bromwich is pie...
I’d rather chase Pangai Jnr or Asiata for much less than a 35 year old 1 year mercenary who will as sure as shit go back to the Roosters for an after footy career anyway. Robbo said “Sonny is a Rooster”. Get it?!?! He’ll never EVER be a Bulldog again in his heart. Fk him
1) B Smith (if not - Clarke or McInnes)
3) either J Bromwich Welch or Hetherington
4) Staines and Rona (if not Coates or Koriebete)
5) if we lose Elliot (don’t pay over 350k) then Asiata.
wouldn’t mind seeing Talakai at Sharks situation. Cover back row or centre.
wouldn’t mind losing...
Culture ... culture... culture BS!
We’re gonna offer this knob 700k MIMINUM to install a “culture” ??? What a load of shit.
- he left us in the lurch.... you know what, it’s pointless going through it all again for those here who believe in unicorns...
Id rather Foran’s or Bird’s injuries as...
At this stage, we have not signed ANY new players to play in the halves.
Based purely on that, who would I rather in our halves next year out of Foran, Wakeham, Lewis or Cogger...???
The answer is easy for me anyway.
that said - there is a price, and no way is it more than 400k. 350k would be...
Does anyone know if we are linked with any decent back rowers?
I wrote in another post, we are pretty thin there now that that piece of shit left.
* Thompson (gun player but putting him here weakens our props depth)
* Jackson (older legs)
* RFM (History shows he can go missing)
* Topine (I...
Actually, looking at it now that that ct has left us, we are pretty fk’n weak in the back row
stocks.... what’s the goss on the Topine kid we have? Does he have the star quality? Is he the goods?
I hope Stimson can get bloody fit and get to his Storm form! Maybe Barrett will be better for him?
I’d love a spine of
Averillo (provided he gets a good run there, taught well AND succeeds)
Foran (on less)
I’d be still having a look at one of either:
* Rona / Coates / Koroibete
* Welch / Bromwich / maybe Hetherington
let Elliot go if he wants more than 350
Broke us in 08’ when the footage was shown of him on a Wednesday night at Sydney International Airport.
I’ll never EVER forget how I felt then about this bloke. We NEEDED him, we were struggling. He complained about money, he was our HIGHEST earner. We wanted to build around him. What else did...
If we didn’t have the hardships of Foran’s history, this would be a no brainer for $275k. There’s 13 sorted. Can also play 5/8 or centre. 275 is worth the risk for this calibre of player. Much more worth it than Cartwright or Scott.
the problem is, we HAVE had the hardships of Foran’s history.....
not surprised, this club LOST ITS BALLS when we didn’t back our captain in 2015 and licked the NRL’s arses dry. Graham forever became a more placid player from that day.
this board confirmed change to this club. They are worse!! Rolled over and just let a player with ability leave to a...
For sure Barrett didn’t want him, especially with the wanker’s manager saying “we’ll only play for Barrett”.
Barrett would probably have insight from Panthers boys ala leaked sex tapes and total CT’s. Would you want this grub around a team trying to build? The slop was/is married too yeah...
I’ve said it before, this club has survived the loss of
Morris x 2
all left us to join other clubs.
I put losing this arsewipe to probably Myles.
Ok, we could...
I said I’d reserve my comment until there was news. Appears there is news.
the Bulldogs ex player.
This bloke is an A Class C@&T!!! Absolutely 100% C$@T make no mistake. He stuffed up AND cost us a sponsorship and then has the nerve to be shitty at us??? Dumb fk just wanted to play finals...
Hooper then Twice said Burton to Dogs is not possible due to Barrett saying he won’t poach. Made a massive dance about it. Acted shocked that he’s paper had an article on it Hahaha. What a sad sad sad ct way out of his depth. Should go back to panel beating, fixing bonnets
I would take should back at this club in a heartbeat.
* would give us cred.
* would be fantastic with a young coach he trusts.
* is a smart football brain
* we’d keep who we want
*we’d be more atttactive for other players to join without paying overs
Look, regardless of people’s opinions on whether we keep or sell him, you can’t knock his effort on the field when fit, nor his attitude towards the club.
it’s not his fault Hasler paid that much for him. I’d take it too. Look at Darius Boyd and Jack Bird ffs.
for the record, for mine, if he...
I know Bullfrog punted Gus, but I honestly believe he does have a little flicker for us still and is always critical of us because he knows how big we are, what we stand for and where we should be in terms of performance, and it is not acceptable for this club to be where it is.
A) we get a like for like quality player for him (I’d maybe accept Starling but he certainly isn’t established and could be a risk)
B) the ct rots in reserves - I don’t care, we havent had him all year anyway.
C) he mans up and admits yes it wasn’t illegal however it was immoral enough to...
Unless we are 100% getting his brother then he 100% needs to go...
hate being mean to guys, but enough is enough, we aren’t a charity (well, never used to be).
before he goes though, the board needs to.
I’ll be honest, I’m pretty devo’d by this.
I was hoping (very optimistically) that this would be the start of a good run for him. Make no mistake, when on the field no other half we have comes close to him.
time to face the hard facts, we need to move on, and to be honest, he should give it...
The irony of this ct calling the story a car crash. You know a lot about damaged cars hey Bonnet Hoops you f’n hack.
ever seen the dickhead on 360? Just yells random things out like Brick Tamland from Anchor Man. Dumb useless rubbish mag rag wanna be ct with eyes!!
I was dirty on Okunbor but at least the kid has owned it.
My thoughts on him as a player have always been he’s big, strong, athletic, all things that can’t be taught. If taught the finer skills like defense and good decision makings then He could become something special. Young and worth a punt.
Lol hand on my heart I also received mail That something big re the board was about to happen very soon, but I didn’t want to paste it as it was vague and could of meant anything. I then saw the piece in the news tonight about the fans ticket. I guess that’s related.
I didn’t want to post...
Guys, I don’t get a lot of mail, but when I do it’s pretty good.
I won’t say he’s coming to us, but I’ve been told he will not be at the Raiders.
now, just because I said he won’t be coming to us, doesn’t mean he isn’t. I take it he is, but I’ve been told he’s leaving Raiders.
1) piss this board off
2) get coach sorted. For me it’s Barrett or Hook. Barrett I’m not 100% on but it looks like going that way. I guess we’ll see
FB - I think stick with Averillo. If Barrett is a gun attacking coach maybe he can really bring this kid on.
Centre - Cotric. If not...
This MUST be a media beat up, because... well... because as bad as this board is going at everything they do, surely.... SURELY they don’t hate the club’s fans that much that they would dare attempt a BS trade like this.
doesn’t matter how much you pretty up a turd, it’s still a turd!
He ain’t no $BW
He ain’t no Barba
He ain’t no Mason
He ain’t no Morris twins
He ain’t no Klemmer
He ain’t no Smith/Dymock/Pay
He ain’t no O’Meley
He ain’t no Asotasi
And he sure ain’t no Thurston
we lost all those and still survived as bad as it looked.
I want him to stay and be a man and...
The ONLY way our club can possibly do the right thing (for once) by its fans in this case is to either keep them OR trade them to a club and get a FANTASTIC player in return. Make US the winners for f’n once!
2 year deal to start is the only smart way to go.
Hopefully he can attract Burton plus a couple of others.
Hopefully he can see our playing group and make some more positive and constructive decisions re selections and who is worth Re signing in what.
Hopefully he still has a good working...
It is impossible [supposed to be anyway] to win back to back comps, have 6 first graders injured before one game and then win by 40.
teams must get weaker after winning 1 comp the way the cap is set up.
This is a BACKWARDS step!
WE ARE GETTING THE SPOON with or without Lafai!
we didn’t sign Reynolds (which I agree with) why would we sign someone who was of so much less value to us on the field than him.
this just shows the board for what they are. No ambition, no judgement, no football...
My lord, we didn’t get Reynolds back because he had his time and we needed to move forward, and he offered MORE than this bloke on a bad day. WE ARE AT AN ALLTIME
* for the record, I never wanted and still don’t want Reynolds back.
In a season that has
Warriors (who have an excuse due to leaving their family)
THIS could be the greatest wooden spoon of all time.
Congratulations to the board, coach, and the players involved
So I guess we’ll get the usual media agenda driven BS all week again -
* good guy Pay club legend (bailed when we needed him in 96’ mind you) deserves a chance with the team he wants.
* Bulldogs will have to pay overs to get anyone.
* player X shouldn’t go to the Bulldogs for more money “overs”...
Tolman has his problems for this team and I agree with most, but being honest, that was uncharacteristic of him. If nothing else he is safe and solid...
that said, we are f’n f’d.
see ya board, see ya Pay. Walk out now like you did to us in 95’ thanks.
A) Pay can not be retained in any way or matter. It will kill us officially
B) Broncos discards must NOT include Oates, Issako, Bird, Milford. Only consider Staggs, Farnworth, Coates, Dearden, Flegler or Turpin.
C) If Issac is correct, Fark me, THAT is the dream. Throw Burton in too ffs!!
I don’t think I could put it any better myself.
so many arseholes have played for this club who have made them a name and then they shit all over our emblem.
still kills me anytime there is glowing talk of:
Pay (he didn’t have to bum up to Gould and Packer - Dogs would...
I wish I could find the archives. I was so pissed when we signed this flop. I knew he would be a rubbish acquisition- stank of panic buy. This was just a terrible terrible signing, and for the money he is on, perhaps the worst of the modern era
I honestly think now we should be leaning towards:
B Smith (Grant will stay Storm)
Serious convo with CHN
Either Johnston, Coates, Rona Or Koroibete
that’s 6 in.
Try and get Foran and Tolman on reduced wages.
Re sign RFM / Wakeham
Elliot, I don’t know. Yes for 350k...
This is going to be an unpopular opinion, but if we can get Tolman down to 300-350, I’d keep him. He’s solid in the middle of the ruck in defence and we currently NEED that...
additional note - id be keeping RFM too
I really don’t know...
We should of chased Holbrook harder or had a dash at McGuire or O’Brien.
Hook may be ok.
I think Barrett would of learnt a lot from the Manly outcome. He’s doing wonders with Penrith’s attack. It’s a risk though...
I just don’t know... all I know is for the first time in...
