    My father wants to ask these questions:
    Question 1:
    Is Foran’s best interests with Canterbury? If so how come he didn’t seem interested in getting the ball when Rhys Martin tried to pass it to him and when he lost it close to the try line?

    Question 2:

    How come players like Will Hopoate, Kieran Foran, Jeremy Marshall King and Aaron Woods have not been dropped despite poor performances all year?

    Question 3: How come Holland is always coming on the last 20 minutes despite playing well when he is always on?

    Question 4: If our salary cap situation is so bad why don’t we release the dead wood we have in Aaron Woods, Aiden Tolman, Will Hopoate and Kieran Foran?

    Question 5: How come players like Lachlan Lewis and Fa'amanu Brown have not been called up to first grade this year despite performing well in NSW cup?

    Question 6: How come we are still playing one out football with no support structure?

    Question 1. What kind of question is that?? Your going to base Forans interest with the club around with that knock on play??

    And shedding those players you mentioned doesn’t solve shit you still have to pay them JMK has been our best defender in my opinion Hopoate has shown great attack and whether I’m gonna get roasted for this idc but Woods has been good in metres

    Holland’s question isn’t a question you ask the board it’s a coaching decision which is based on tactics so you would waste time asking that question

    The only question that’s not too bad is question 5 but even that aswell is a coaching decision but anyway

    I can’t make it unfortunately so here’s a couple I’d like answered. I’d say they will probably cover the salary cap stuff straight up so most questions about that will be made redundant.

    1. Was Haslers payout covered by insurance?

    2. Are we changing jersey manufacturers to Classic?

    3. What does the renovations to ANZ Stadium mean to our contract there? I read that the Tigers will not be getting paid a cent to play there from next year because of the stadium being bought by the government. Does this apply to us aswell.

    4. Who is in our top 30?

    What repercussions does the Club intend against Ray Dib and co for destroying the club? Are they going to start legal action for negligence in the Hasler contract situation and seek damages. Furthermore will he be banned from the Club and all it's activities?

    The forum is pretty much being held for off field stuff. I’m not sure if Pay will even be there to answer questions and he would be the person to answer most of yours.

    Can everyone just shut the fuck up and get back to what this thread is about...

    I'm more interested to know if there will be ANY questions about the salary cap. I mean, MEDIA claimed that was the reason behind the forum, and now it appears that it is not. Can anyone shed light on this based on the email sent to members?

    A few things I would like to know:
    1. Can the club ensure that more focus is placed on Flegg/NSW Cup/HMatts/SG Ball, so fans can follow a players progress though grades? Live streaming or something maybe?
    2. Why aren't our Jersey Flegg and NSW Cup players profiles on the website?
    3. What is our Top 30?
    4. What is happening with our Strength and Fitness?

    and if Greenberg is actually there

    5. Does the board fully support the notion that the NRL NEED to act on the situation with referees?

    That one I'd love to see asked. Put them on the spot in front of Greenberg and Co.

    Hopefully this administration will be a bit more transparent and not filter out all the tough questions at this forum.

    Greenberg,Beattie along with the clubs board and management have been going from club to club having these forums with the fans and this is our turn.The salary cap situation will obviously get talked about but it wasn’t put on for the sole purpose of answering the cap issue.

    If you are posting in here, be respectful of others questions.

    If you feel the need to attack another posters questions, you'll be removed from the thread and your posts /questions with it.

    Q1 - Foran knocked the ball on, but it was a tough pass regardless. Just one of those things. He loves the club and has stated so several times in the media.

    Q2 - Impact, to catch lacking defence and with minimal intercahnges (if any) left for the other side.

    Q3 - If we offload them to other teams (like Kasiano and Graham), we will pay part of their contract unless the other team completely take over the contract (usually unlikely). If it was someone like Tedesco, or Cronk or Smith, then yes another club might take that contract over totally as they are in demand. But someone like Tolman we'd be paying a percentage of his contract if we were to shift him.

    More on that if you move on Woods, Hoppa, and Foran we have very little attack. People bag Foran and Woods unfairly and without looking statistically at what they do (metres made getting us up field, line breaks, offloads at the line). Foran and Woods issues at the moment is nobody supporting them waiting for offloads.

    Q5 - Brown has been a few times and made crucial errors/given away silly penalties. Lewis I think is a work in progress and will take on eventually a role like Holland.

    NOTE: Could also be because if he plays in NRL it costs us more.

    If you were to ask those questions, you are lucky that the board aren't allowed to also ask you some questions in reply.
    Imagine when you ask question 3, the reply to the question would be why did all the kennel's wan't to crucify us for signing Holand in the first place then all those calls by fans questioning why we don't shop him around.
