Is cooper johns worth a go? At least we receive good press from fox and channel 9.. which psychologically helps us cause we got positivity from journos which helps our players .. i am in disbelief how far we sunk
He was horrible last night, you could be forgiven for thinking he wasn't even on the field

The media dumb ***** like to add drama to their dribble.

Plus They need at least one good player in that putrid list.
Ye but don't be surprised if TPJs manager gets into his ear and asks for a release to go to the Dolphins...he is a player of great potential...the issue is that Barrett cannot get the best out of players like TPJ and Barrett. We need a hard nosed coach who actually can coach and get the best out of our players and we cannot make fukin recruitment mistakes by signing Flano for 3 years and then be stuck with him. Our biggest problem is half back and if we hope to keep Burton beyond next year we need to pair him with a great half back...who that will be I don't know...but I know one thing...fukin barett is inhibiting the development of Bondi by playing him 5 minutes from the bench each week..... allow him to development as a half back!

Instead of having good coaching and structures in place so players can come to us and improve there game, all what it is going on here is trying to recruit players to come over with the chance to try and make the coaching staff look good.
They had a huge recruitment drive last season, pretty much everyone has declined, gone backwards. So what do they do? Another big turnover.
This coaching staff is the biggest bunch of frauds to ever be in the NRL

The dolphins i'm sure would be prepared tp pay out his contract in full
Don't mind him going if Barrett is staying.

He will stay an up and down unfocussed loose cannon with issues.

Great player but another who needs focus and discipline and a defined job to accomplish, with plenty of coaching direction.

Tpj doesn’t look interested i doubt he will see out 22 with us.
Rumours are saying he was sick on Friday but that piece of shit coach played him still. Im giving this one a slide, only just. If it was Flanagan it would of been a different story in the media. Cmon Crawley were is the DUTY OF CARE for TPJ you sunbaked wrinkly ****.

Yeah but they’re quality for near minimum wage.
I know what you're saying but anyone off contract for next year has to go due to our sc and overpriced slackers who are contracted.

Besides we need better than Rfm and Doorey. Both injury worries and too small or reached their ceiling (with us).

I'd have another look at Topine for back up lock but for heavens sake give these guys some better mentoring and specialised coaching so they get a fair go.

There is some good young halves coming through.
They are young, but good. Watch dolphins Isahya Katoa go.
I’m sure there is some promising talent, we even have some in our stable. But right now in the NRL there isn’t.

Yep a lot of them need to go but it ain’t that easy. Flanno , Thompson and Allen are all on contract and are all overpaid. We would have to pay massive freight on all of them.

I would be stunned if they haven’t already been shopped around but the fact they are all still here suggests there have been no takers. Maybe it might be easier to move them on next year with it being the last year of their contracts
I think we just need to cop the massive freight. Flanagan and Allan are no better than minimum wages so whatever extra we get is a bonus and we need whatever we can get from Thompson to get into the market again for next year.
