    I hope you're prepared to say the same about ours then.

    So you think we’re the last Sydney club a player will sign for, that’s just LOL! Is that how low you rate our club? Give me a break

    Foran has been brought up in this topic because it’s the very definition of what paying overs is.

    What are you going on about paying $100k to $200k for average players? Do you actually think we paid overs for Britt or Stimpson. Please mate, this is all taking a stab in the dark.

    Thank you very much. Exactly!

    Our club won’t be paying ridiculous amounts of cash to players that are not worth it. Just so I can remind a few on here Des and Dib are not running the show anymore.

    Well it's great to know we're the only club in today's game that isn't going to do that (bar Storm and Roosters of course, even tho they even signed Crichton for 1m).

    I think finishing the year the way we have also makes us much more appealing in recruitment as we are definitely building something and the future is looking great

    Did one of the board of directors at the Roosters tell you what Crichton was on?

    I agree. I reckon players would come to the Dogs before the Tigers. Madge is a good coach and ultimately will likely build a good team - but right now he’s cleaning up Cleary’s shitshow. Cleary will destroy the Panthers too - no wonder Gus walked. The last 8 weeks showed the Dogs tenacity and that’s attractive. Hopefully 2020 builds further but 2021 will be night and day compared to the last 18 months - and it’s not just cap, it’s culture.

    Yes, I do think we're the last Sydney club a player will sign for. We'll also be tipped bottom 4 again next season (I'll personally predict 2nd/3rd last). I believe $ and results are more important to players then history and culture.

    We're not going to back end deals again like we did with Foran, Woods, etc. It just isn't comparable what so ever, we tried to cheat the salary cap (by predicting it's growth years in advance). We'll have to pay a higher flat rate tho.

    Any player that we want to sign that another club is interested in we're not going to be able to sign by paying their value (Ramien, Koroisau and Ese'ese, I believe more players will come out over the next few months). There's no reason why they would come to a club in our situation for the same amount of $, as simple as that. Who else was willing to give Britt and Stimson (also no source on Stimson's salary) opportunities when we signed them? I also don't believe these types of players are going to make much of a difference to our results. As it stands I don't think either of them actually make our 17.

    Just the last few months. People like you think Cameron Smith would just leave Storm and come here for free.

    I'm still waiting for you to give me something regarding attracting players where other clubs are in for the same player(s). If you can't do that then what's the point of replying to me making fun of what I'm saying? I really don't understand. I didn't even start the paying overs on this thread, you and other idiots did.

    I'm not against signing marquee million dollar players, not only do they strengthen your team immensely they effectively weaken the opposition.
    Imagine the Roosters with no Cronk (they don't win the comp last year)
    Souths without Cook (No top 4)
    Manly without Turbo
    Melbourne without Munster/Smith and so forth.

    Automatically adds more balance to the competition, always important to remember this factor.

    Example- We build our team up and are firing enough to make the GF and play Storm we have Munster they have someone of the calibre of Lewis, who wins?
