    You have to love how Canberra make the GF against all odds and the media report that they have to release their whole team because of cap pressure.

    The Roosters win back to back comps with a team full of rep stars and they're not rumoured to be under any cap pressure. And none of the media question any of it...

    It really is a joke of a competition and it's a wonder why any of us even care.

    The Roosters could win 10 comps in a row and no one at the NRL or in the media would call them out for their blatant cheating. Instead they'll just blow "supercoach" Robinson and Politis.

    750k is more than fair for Wighton at this stage.

    I have said it many times before never underestimate the power of the media, Politis has managed to corner it very well through Gyngel and Ch9, but he has also managed to get the support of News LTD, and with it came the support of the NRL Admin.
    As for me personally I will always support the Bulldogs I have since 1967, but I now have total contempt for the NRL, the media and the game itself, I can also see many flaws with the on field product.
    If we want to be really competitive in the future, we have to look outside the square. I have always found it difficult to convince people to look outside the square during my engineering days.
    Politis has set things up very well for his pet team, The Rosters are to well established to ever get caught, and will dominate for ever and a day, all the other clubs can hope for, is to be competitive among themselves.

    What's annoyed me most about this is how the media have purposefully come out and 'questioned' the Rooster's ability to keep all of their highprofile players, only to demonstrate that it's indeed possible and how they're the blueprint for successful clubs.

    It sickens me how there's such open contempt for rugby league in general, but also the fans in that they're openly and clearly rorting the system but now using the media to try to pull the wool over everyone's eyes. The hardest part in all of this are the Bulldog, Melbourne fans who've really paid the price for salary cap cheating and have been forever marked by it. But the Rorters continually get away with it with the backing of the NRL, media, an most high profile ex-players. It's a joke.

    I don't really rate his skill. Seems like he's just a ball running 5/8th going through a purple patch of form... not worth 1 million at all..

    Spot on Kelpie03. Politis has killed rugby league. Over the next 15 years 3 clubs will dominate GF wins. No surprises who but the top club will be the roosters unless Politis's money and influence ends.

    I honestly couldn't see him as our long term hooker.

    But I really think there is some special with Wakeham.

    This statement has clearly been planted already "Cooper Cronk's retirement and Zane Tetevano's likely exit will free up much-needed salary cap room, while Aubusson is expected to retire when his new one-year deal concludes next year." It will be the reason why they're not only going to keep their current stars but buy more talent and the NRL is happy with that. On the other hand, if the Dogs or anyone else for that matter even slightly goes over .... BOOM!

    It's absolutely sickening and contemptful towards everyone. Considering what our club has been through with the salary cap, I honestly don't understand why more people don't call the Rorters and NRL out.

    I have faith that he will be the halfback we have needed since Sherwin.

    Nope... might have got the Clive Churchill but Roosters far from their best... I actually felt like a lot of their plays shut down because of him either throwing a wayward pass, or putting in a bad kick.... he's like a better Josh Reynolds

    It’s like he is purposely trolling the fans , you can’t tell me a team like the roosters is under the cap? It beggars belief thatwhen the tpa chart came out that the roosters are paying $250,000 in tpas. Their backline alone is worth more then our team legit.
    Nrl at its lowest point and if roosters win again next year fans will turn away, politis has lunch with greenberg this is well documented, also very close with dean ritcjie and rothfoeod who are lead editors at the newspaper who basically controls the headlines on our game, and that same newspaper is owned by the same people who own shares in channel 9 , and the broncos who are the next most corrupted team.

    the fact the sharks somehow didn’t cheat in 2016 but cheated in 2015,2017 and 2018 is another nail in the coffin but the nrl penalised them for it but couldn’t handle the brunt of another cheated premiership on their records.

    fuck this corrupt nrl and can’t wait till the doggies raise the trophy again, we will be there it’s getting close . If we can win with the team we got now imagine when we develop and sign a few leaders of the game.

    So according to the Turd, all 15 clubs need to win premierships then pay their players less for the greater chance of winning premierships?

    Every man and his dog can see this Comp needs structural change, yet he does nothing until things blow up.
