It's called sarcasm
Good morning Horse!
we don't need another player made of glass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If this was happening it would be a done deal by now.
And what's that?
he started as a centre and will dominate when he returns there
Think long and hard and I'm sure you'll get it
Nup. Still not getting anything. Damn it.
I don't have access but this was released ~20 minutes go.

Josh Reynolds Bulldogs return over after Wests Tigers talks stall
Hopes of a fairytale return to Belmore have been squashed for Josh Reynolds with the former State of Origin half to remain with the Wests Tigers.
Negotiations over a switch to Canterbury have stalled after the clubs failed to reach an agreement on how his salary, believed to be around $750,000 a season, would be divided.
While the Bulldogs are in the market for players, their former cult hero would command too much of their salary cap for 2020, with the Tigers unwilling to pay top dollar for him to play at a rival club.
Bulldogs coach Dean Pay said yesterday it was difficult to make agreements with clubs for players on huge wages while keeping the salary cap in balance. “From our point of view it’s something that’s gone off the boil to a certain degree,” he said.
“When there’s large sums of money involved it’s hard to manage that side of the cap and that’s where it gets really difficult to manage.”
Reynolds was let go by the Bulldogs at the end of 2017 after seven years and two grand finals with the club. Injury has restricted him to just 14 games for the Tigers, primarily in the halves or as a bench utility.
However, the Bulldogs have plenty of money tied up in the halves with million-dollar star Kieran Foran shaping to return to the field in round three and Lachlan Lewis, Brandon Wakeham and Jack Cogger vying for a spot.
Canterbury have agreed to terms with Wakeham and the club is to announce his signature by the end of the week keeping him at the club until the end of 2022.
Wakeham’s fresh signature indicates he has edged past Lewis and Cogger in the halves battle, especially after coach Dean Pay benched halfback Lewis after 55 minutes into the clash against the North Queensland Cowboys in round two.
The Bulldogs are also dealing with several injuries from their first-grade side for the season, while Corey Harawira-Naera and Jayden Okunbor have had their contracts de-registered.
These holes need to be filled, but only when it is the right fit says Pay.
“It’s one of those things where we’re always looking for quality players but you’ve got to be able to fit in with what we’re doing salary-cap wise with different players so there’s a lot of different restrictions,” he said.
The right fit better not = Stimson like signings lol.
Thank fuck for that
Hopefully that's the end of the Reynolds saga for now. I'm sure this time next year we'll be linked to him again.
The fact that they were chasing Reynolds in the first place is definitely concerning.
Your fucking pissed mate dogs have got more of a chance WINNING a competion than foran ever being fit he is as bad as two legged race horse honestly need to fuck him off waste of money big part of dogs problems hasler looked after his mate foran fuck foran his drift wood now useless and has done nothing for dogs just a waste of space full stop.
Maybe look at Ben hunt, he needs a change of scenery, negotiate an early exit could solve our halves problems
The dragons supporters haven't been too kind to him.
Come to the dogs
I'd defenitely take him at hooker.
I mentioned that elsewhere that he could be our answer at hooker for 2 years if we can't get say B.Smith. Dragons aren't going to win anything with him and Norman in the halves so they need to move on, a spine of;
6. Lam / Burton
would be a good restart for them. I think if someone offered to pay most of his contract early you would get a chance, we'd have the money to make it happen aswell. Take into account the other day there was an article about him being worried about losing his QLD spot, better chance of keeping it at 9.
Agree, big upgrade on what we have , given some of the rubbish we have been linked to its not the worst idea to see if the Dragons are interested
