    Haha. Yeah, some "unforeseen circumstances" even though Brown was always going to get sacked.

    I remember being OS a few years back and ran into CP13 and he said he thought Bird was going to be the biggest superstar in the game and was stoked the Broncs signed him...

    I know he has had his health issues but not sure we can blame that?

    Makes you wonder why the Broncos aren't doing so great with so much talent in their ranks...

    At least the chooks can try and argue they're using "cronk" money... but what is the broncos excuse?

    Think it’s simple, We suck and we need to cheat the cap more?

    The logical explanation would be they'll free up Boyd's money soon, as well as McCullough and Glenn and Bird won't be re-signed on anywhere near that money...

    But even factoring all of that in, they'd barely squeeze under the cap and that's not accounting for the star signings they'll make with those players leaving. So they always have and always will be over the cap and nothing will ever get done about it.

    The salary cap needs a complete overhaul... its a complete failure...

    it's sole purpose is to ensure a level playing field, yet we see the same teams succeed year in year out

    Agree but not succeed.

    Broncos aren’t successful but clearly are top 2-3 in raping the cap

    This is probably true but don’t forget the broncos have access to a wealth of third party sponsors in Brisbane. The place is 100% rugby league. If you want to level the playing field put another team in Brisbane

    According to article published late last year Broncos have 800k in TPA registered with the NRL.....

    https://www.nrl.com/news/2018/12/13...ents-public-and-strengthens-contract-process/

    On average, clubs benefited from $264,000 in TPAs, a figure boosted greatly by Melbourne (slightly more than $1 million) and Brisbane (almost $800,000).

    That same report claimed that the Roosters had less TPA's than several bottom 8 clubs so I take it with a grain of salt. The real TPA and systemic rorting figure for Brisbane is probably three times the amount you mentioned but my point is that the whole TPA system is a scam and counter productive to the implementation of a cap in the first place.

    if the broncos can keep fifita at the club long enough to offload boyd gillett mccollough by the end of 2020 or 2021 they wont have any troubles in resigning him, the big problem will be putting him on a large back endd deal that the nrl now frown upon
