    I don't bother with the Sunday show any more. Not after Jimmy big noted himself about having inside information on Anthony Griffin getting the sack by round 1 this year and SBW to sign with the Roosters by June 30.
    Neither have happened.
    Ray Thomas is irrelevant unless you are an insomniac desperately needing sleep.

    This morning Laurie had his a*se handed to him by TK & Ritchie over the ‘ownership’ of salary cap (coach vs. committee). In all the arguing Laurie could only cite Hasler as a rogue(basically doing what he wanted)and tried to say it was a major problem across the game. Car crash radio.

    Well Hasler was the prevailing example. Sheens/Potter/Taylor at Wests drove the place into a cap hole as well. Manly, pre and post Hasler, Parramatta (cap cheating.)

    I thought Laurie made a good point, but it seemed as though Splinters and Bulldog misappropriated his stance as the coach should not have a say. All Laurie was saying was having a cap manager at the club to protect the interests of the club is a good idea and stops coaches driving clubs into the ground for short term glory and bump up their prospects elsewhere (ala Hasler.)

    Splinters was just interested in saying that the coach has no say, and that no coach will go to a club where he has no say. No matter how many times Laurie repeated that wasn't the case the two f**king clowns kept arguing that useless point, especially when I think it was Splinters brought up Origin, and Laurie simply said "I wasn't managed by a salary cap in origin, it's not the same." f**king stupid analogy TK, the merkin thinks he's an authority on everything which is why I seldom listen to the show.

    It was car crash radio, but I don't think Laurie was in the wrong. He sounds like a bit of a dope and a larrikin but he knows infinitely more and has achieved infinitely more in the game of Rugby League than some gossip columnist masquerading as a journalist and a bloke who spends his days jacking off thoroughbreds when he's not acting as an authority in all things sport.

    His sentiment was right but the he came across as it being an epidemic across all clubs(its could be but it’s not). If he didn’t ponce around with ‘Umms & Ahhs’ he would have been more convincing. He’s actually too nice a bloke to put his foot down.

    Some arselicker rang up this morning thanking Laurie for laying down the foundations for NSW series win.
    Um, 12 new players, a new coach and coaching staff with different methods. Laurie got no credit on this one.

    Laurie got his side in a position to win the series last year but the players imploded when it counted. Blues did the same last night but there was no Smith Thurston or Cronk to take advantage for Qld. If those three didn't play game 2 last year would NSW have won the series?

    It was cringeworthy on behalf of the caller. I reckon Laurie was a bit embarrassed to be honest given he's a pretty humble bloke.

    One good thing I would say about Laurie you can crack a joke with him. If it's personal jab about his nose or a criticism he will just laugh it off. I like that.
    Tk & Slats forget it. They get shitty straight away and cut you off.

    I like Laurie, he used to infuriate me as a commentator as I thought he was hopeless but he's a genuinely likeable bloke and he's pretty humble as BB has already said, in contrast to the f**kstains Uncle Creepy and Splinters.

    I listen for laughs.
    If you a betting man you make a quid going against his tips.
    Last week he put the mocker on the Warriors stating they would beat Penrith 13+.
    Then the most bizarre comment of all. After England missed a goal in the penalty shoot-out, Daley made the silly claim he is a body language expert and England will lose the penalty shoot out to Columbia.
    Then he went into a detailed analysis of negative body language equates to losing. I can see a loss coming for England he boasted. No way they can win.
    He like look a real knob when England won. Then he jumped on the pommy bandwagon declaring they can go the whole way. No wonder they lost this morning.

    Fortunately you see through his BS, as do I, but many people out there don't and think that guy is some expert. He was a gifted player and in a Raiders team that was stacked with internationals but that's where it stops.

    Lots of lols this morning, Laurie and TK almost begging for the US correspondent to agree that a series MVP can come from the losing team in a series , he said no way if he only played 2 of the 3 games. Couldn’t understand how that could happen. There was a deafening silence for a few seconds until Laurie moved to the next story.

    I'm ok with horse racing. But switch off or go to another station when union or Aust.rules talk happens.

    I listen from 5:30 to about 6:40 then I'm out. If I want an interview I go online later and get the podcast.
