    Can the people on here who slammed the board/coach etc. for not signing this muppet raise your hand/s.

    It seems our due diligence is on track...

    Guy seems like a Group 1 flog!

    He couldn't because he smashed his phone throwing it at the taxi.

    There are reporters at the telecrap crying now because we didn't sign him. I get the opinion that he was released by the Storm because they knew he had behavioral issues off the field. Perhaps they already had to sweep things under the carpet recently. I don't know if the club actually tried to recruit him or not. But we've avoided a huge amount of pre-season drama that having him on our roster would have caused.

    Wouldn't be an issue for us. Dean Pay is a supercoach and there's no way any player would get drunk and do anything stupid under his guidance.

    The shit that Freddy, Joey, Matt Johns etc would get away with was insane. They were complete druggies and alcoholics who would go on massive benders..

    If they played in the social media age, and if there was footage of the shit they did, they would have been totally fucked.

    Get wasted, pass out and punch security guards and arrested? - A handful of articles and then nothing

    Do a private end of year party, isolated from the public. Physically harm nobody. Isolate yourself so no one sees anything and no one can be offended by anything? Weeks and months of headlines and police charges and NRL sanctions.

    Seems fair....

    I wouldn't give up Reimis for the Fox or most outside backs, I don't think we've seen anywhere near the best of Reimis to date. He is big body with speed to burn and the new rule changes will suit him if we can get our halves kicking to him.

    People bitch and moan about the way we are going about our recruitment, but I think there is a well thought out plan in place so that we create an atmosphere around this team, where everyone buys in, and the place becomes somewhere players want to come and play. A few dickhead can really easily throw this all off tilt, and that's why we have been so selective with this.

    Definitely. He’ll no doubt need to do anger management now and hopefully it helps because he’s a talent. I’ve always liked him since he belted Dylan Walker

    I think there appears to be a general misunderstanding in relation to how the ‘no fault stand down’ policy works.

    When a player is charged with a substantive offence (most serious of offences charged) carrying a maximum of 11 years or more of imprisonment, they are automatically stood down ie De Belin. This is not discretionary.

    When the substantive offence is less than 11 years, the NRL has a discretion as to whether to stand that player down. The NRL has indicated when the offence is domestic violence, or includes harm against women, then they will apply this discretion positively.

    Although Scott was charged with numerous offences, the substantive offence of (common) assault officer in execution of duty is 5 years

    In my view, the fact Scott was charged with a number of offences, plus the offending includes violence against law official should be sufficient for the discretion to stand him down. It goes to his port character and bad look for the game. I’m not sure why he has opted not to, generally the rule doesn’t fall on the strength of the police case, however I would say there is body worn footage and a number of officers (witnesses) present, it sounds like a solid case.

    Obviously, Scott has plead not guilty means either he didn’t assault police or raise a self-defence argument (ie police were aggressors and he needed to protect himself).

    I am fairly confident police would not have charged had the body worn not have favorited their version of events.

    Hope this helps.

    Not to excuse his behaviour, he acted like a complete f***wit but in the old days players got away with a lot more and it never made the press or the courts.
