Less "?"s then last year.
Recruitment is still a "?" tho.
Hit the big 30!!! Keep getting better, next year looks promising!!
You should only post a thread called "great end to year" if it's in late September!
We have grown accustomed to mediocre seasons, that much that we celebrate a win at end of season. True story
But I did enjoy tonight’s game, can’t deny that
Come on mate, that's such a load of shit! I cant stand people saying this shit. We haven't accepted mediocrity at all. That's just bullshit.
The last few years have been tough for many reasons, I need not explain. But suggesting we are accepting mediocrity after the end to this season, and after all of the hard work and tough decisions that have been made is just completely false.
i dont think we can afford to waste the first six rounds next year on gambling if lewis can put back to back games together
Not really. I don’t know why this doesn’t bother me as much as it worries others on this forum. I don’t think recruitment is a problem at all.
1. We’re one win out of the top 8 so I don’t see how players don’t want to come to our club. It’s not like we are wooden spooners or a team finishing in the bottom four. And for all the whining bitches on this forum and you know who you are who kept playing the same tune all season that players don’t want to come to a wooden spoon club...well that theory is now squashed!!
2. Players like DWZ, CHN and Stimpson are all quality players who signed with our club when we were at our lowest.
3.Just because we missed out on a few more signings is a good thing IMO. It shows that proper cap management is in place and that we are not going to pay overs for anyone nor be dictated by player managers anymore. We are proving that we can promote within and develop young players who want to play FG. This is the definition of an attractive club!
4. Some comments are made on this forum without a single idea of the inner workings of our club.
5. Steven Price is going to be the best administrator the club has ever had since Bullfrog
Didn't Much as have a farewell last year or the year before...beware..lol
The only problem, next season seems so far away. It’s like mothballing an engine once it’s finely fully primed.
I like your comment regarding Steven Price,that’s a big call
My knowledge of our management staff or inner workings is limited but you have instilled confidence in saying that.
We should be very grateful that this great club is in good hands and moving forward
Hope the rest of the board are also on the same page,looking forward to voting
It was a great finish to the season and the pride and effort for the past few months has been amazing. Unfortunately though the same thing happened the year before and look how we started in 2018 and this year..
All of this will mean nothing if we start off 3-8 again next season and dig ourselves an insurmountable hole. Playing like this when the pressure is on is the key part.
Hopefully we have a huge offseason and build on these performances this time. The attack needs to keep improving and moving forward Ogden, Renouf, RFM, Wakeham and Harper need to play more than they did this season for us to take the next step.
Yeah but surely we gotta pay overs to bring in some top name players?
Only way we can do it is by paying overs
Im telling ya
Anyone know how much DWZ, CHN and Stimson are on?
Yes i was the same with the Bulldogs chant its been a while . Last night was special. We are coming back and cant wait till next year. Congrats to all at the dogs.
Lol, I wonder what people mean by “paying overs”
The term paying overs is used too loosely these days.
When people say we need to pay overs to recruit players, which players are we actually talking about?
Paying Foran $1m a season when he would of come for $500k is what you call “paying overs”
But paying $800k for a gun hooker when their market value is $700k or maybe paying an extra $100k for another gun player in a spin position to complete our line up is not paying overs. Two spine players for an extra $200k of a $9.5m salary cap is chump change.
Yes it is overs, for keys positions to beat other clubs to the punch which all clubs do IMO. But if your definition of overs means the Foran type purchase, well yeh that’s what you call paying overs which this club will not do, nor be fooled by player managers anymore!
Also when people say we need to pay overs because we’re not an attracting club, well that’s just bullshit! The tightness we have around the playing group at the moment would make any player want to come play for a club on the rise!
Paying overs = 200-300k Bulldog tax. It's what I read on TK...
Overs = paying a large enough sum to attract a player from a rival. IMO it's 200-300k for marquee players. 100-200k for average to decent players.
So if we wanted Koroisau (I'm not 100% what he signed at the Panthers for, but lets say 500k) 600-700k. If we wanted Ramien also 600-700k.
I believe we're the last Sydney club a player will sign for.
I'm not sure why Foran and other back ended deals are brought up.
Paying "overs" examples would be;
Does that mean we have to pay more super to the players as well?
Are RDO and sick days included?
