    Plenty of options.. Okunbor and CHN probably release around 800k in the cap.

    CHN is a loss but he will be replaced. Okunbor was always making mistakes.
    At the end of the day if they weren’t fucking dumb arses this wouldnt of happened. Its not hard to do the right thing!
    At least that frees up some cash for some big name signings hopefully. We also have 3 spots to fill in this years top 30.

    This is pretty much how I feel.... although I do feel there are players running around who should have been deregistered under the same standards and the NRL lacks a bit of consistency. How Matt Lodge was allowed to return to the game, I’ll never understand.

    Having said that, Okunbor and CHN only have themselves to blame.

    TPJ would be a good pick up to add some size and aggression on an edge. Word was the broncos might release him to keep Fifita

    His suspension record is getting to be a huge problem. He has so much loading now that even a minor offence ends up getting 3/4 weeks.

    Each to their own I guess. Obviously this was going to divide the fanbase, just hoped that people would see a little sense. Guess it's too much to ask.

    As of yet I've not seen one person defending JO as it seems people have accepted what he's done is worthy of being de-registered? If that's the case then it smacks of hypocracy when it comes to CHN as to me the uproar is more because he's a decent player and he'll be missed not so much because of the facts.

    I agree that on paper it seems like a tough call against CHN with what was presented. But do prior incidents come into play? The fact that the club & NRL presented pretty clear guidelines and rules to the players? Someone mentioned that a past board member said it was automatic sacking for players who brought a female to their hotel room? There are so so many things behind this decision that everyone seems so hellbent on ignoring so they can throw mud at the club.

    We're useless? Any person with a grudge against the club may say that so I get it. Personally the way I look at this is that the club are finally setting the benchmark for player behaviour at the club and in the NRL. Good for them. We lost 2m + because of these idiots.

    Goodbye. You won't be missed.

    Honestly I’m happy it’s over as much as I don’t think the punishment fits the crime

    cannot say im surprised by the nrl action on this, have to say both players have let themselves and the club down big time with their actions. nrl have throw out to every club every player what they expect from players when they are representing the nrl.

    both players have paid very dearly for something thats not illegal, but more so not a good look
    they were dumb and should have put the values of the club before themselves

    and now we await to see if the nrl punish the club further

    I think we should make a big play for Staggs, he is a weapon and might be open to moving back to NSW

    Extended his contract recently with the Broncos. Hard to see us having a shot for next year.

    Perhaps this is part of the reason for the seemingly hardline stance by the club? So many misinformed and dated views on this matter towards women that the club & NRL are seeing this as an opportunity to begin the reshaping of male views towards women?

    For the life of me I can't believe some people are attempting to throw mud on these girls.

    So forget the rest of the argument and just focus on that? It was only one part of the wider picture, but you're happy to burn the club with your views then so be it.

    If they are that dumb off the field I can't see how their footy IQ can improve all that much.

    this is a clear case of selective moral standards. these young men should have the chance to redeem themselves.
