    Dear Lynne,

    For years we have been copping it up the ass from the Roosters grabbing our players and players we have been chasing at their own will.

    Dib thought he was Uncle Nick's best friend, and didn't Dib get his ass lubricated on a fair few occasions.

    It's time you, Madam, return the favour with the greatest of heists.

    Love Always,

    Agree. We should tactically put in big offers to any quality Rorters players off contract even if its only to be a pawn for managers drive up the price of their roosters contract plus paper bag cash and give Uncle Nicks nuts a big squeeze.

    As much as I hate the roosters with a passion,their doing the same shit shat our club did 30 years ago,spotting a talent improving it and keeping it,look at the players they let go over the last 3 years,and you will see y they are so consistent

    Exactly. This raises the point if teams have an inherent advantage to signing players based on locale.

    For example: 500k at Penrith < 400k at Cronulla

    Here is how the Rorters do it...
    Every year The Rorters call for invitation only fans night made up of many business people who are associates of Politis,
    Under the pretence of no connection to their Rorters club they commit to players sponsorships and call it TPA payments !
    The National Rorting League closes its eyes and pretend it's not happening !!!
    Sad joke...C
    laiming importance for an even competition :rage:

    It's an unfortunate thing really. It seems like they can poach whoever they want through seemingly endless TPA deals. The sad thing for the Roosters is that they can't buy fans or a soul. At the end of the day having a rich fan who is probably subsidising the TPA's will only last so long when that rich fan is getting pretty old. Whether the TPA's last beyond his years is questionable. Hopefully they don't. Sponsors are generally fronting the money to bring in new customers. And that generally requires that the fans of the team they're sponsorship goes towards have a large fan base. I'd laugh my ass off if the Roosters roster starts falling apart within six months of uncle nicks death.

    Clubs who live in more affluent areas can take advantage of relocation/temporary accommodation allowance which is not counted under the salary cap. Pretty obvious rort but whatever

    If we were able to do the same thing as the roosters I doubt anyone here would have an issue with it and we'd be saying other fans were haters for making comments.

    We need to become smarter at how we do things, simple as that.

    Roosters chairman Nick Politis preparing $500m parting gift for his club
    By Andrew Webster
    September 27, 2018 — 8.44pm


    For the past 25 years, Roosters chairman Nick Politis has sat in the same seat — row N, bay 62, seat 1 — at Allianz Stadium to watch his beloved team.

    When the stadium is knocked down following next Friday’s Michael Buble concert, the SCG Trust will give Politis the seat as a souvenir.

    It's a nice touch but a more pressing question is how much longer will Politis, 76, be sitting on the throne of the Roosters?


    Will a grand final victory over the Storm on Sunday night prompt Politis to step back and hand over the chairmanship?

    “No mate,” Politis said. “I haven’t thought about retirement”.


    Then he let out his signature giggle.

    “Can we just wait and see if we win first? One step at a time. But I won’t be retiring.”

    Politis certainly understands, though, that he can’t run the club forever and is preparing for the future. His end-game is to deliver a property portfolio worth $500 million before he finishes.

    He might have made his way in the world selling cars but much of his fortune can be attributed to property. He was last year ranked No.82 on The Australian Financial Review's Rich List with an estimated wealth of $773 million.

    On his watch, the Roosters have snapped up Waverley Bowling Club, Berkeley Sports, Kingswood Sports Club and Woy Woy Leagues. They also plan to turn North Bondi Golf and Diggers Club into a multi-purpose sports centre.


    The centrepiece is a redeveloped Easts Leagues in Bondi Junction. The club has snapped up most of the property on the L-shaped block on the corner of Spring Street and Bronte Road with a long-term plan to turn it into a lucrative high-rise development.

    Politis knows his club can’t survive on poker machine revenue forever and wants to leave it in safe hands for the next custodians of the club.

    “That should be any chairman's objective,” he said. “At the moment, our commercial property is valued at $120m and we have no debt. Next year, we will have $10m in cash in the bank. We’re in a very good position financially.”

    Now to the small matter of finding the next chairman.

    This column raised the question at the start of the year when rumours started floating around that Politis was about to stand down. It is no closer to being answered.


    Former David Jones boss Mark McInnes was being prepared to take over but he’s since left the board. Former Nine boss David Gyngell is a possibility. So, too, is businessman Mark Bouris.

    Powerful TV executive Mark Fennessy is an important board member who was fundamental in getting fullback James Tedesco to the club when Politis refused to deal with Tedesco’s manager, Isaac Moses, after a spectacular fallout.

    But Fennessy, like many on the club’s high-powered board, doesn't have the time to juggle work life and Roosters’ life.

    “I want to make sure whoever takes over has the time, enthusiasm and passion to make sure the club continues to be successful,” Politis said. “We have some good candidates on our board. We’ll sort something out.”

    Uncle Nick usually does.


    The roosters are in better hands then the NRL itself
