    Because they neither have the money or people who actually want to work for them

    I'm actually aware of that. I didn't mean to write the word quality and edited my post as quickly as I could to correct what I meant. My computer is slow as shit tonight.
    I've definitely also heard what you've said.

    They can definitely provide past history as an indicator of future behaviour. How does our recent past compare to that of clubs like the Storm and the Roosters?

    Cheating is only one thing. How about ecstasy/pornography/DV scandals surrounding several of your players?

    It's actually ironed on by graduates of the NRL School to Work program.

    He was a promising member of our Harold Matts squad until we got his birth certificate translated.

    I have seen these up close. Have the name and playing number of every previous Parra player. Up to the end of last year I assume. These are in small font in the yellow stripes you can see. Trying to create a bit of tradition in the younger generation I assume

    I wonder if recent events will make it harder to get a major player over the line.

    We don't deserve a major sponsor.

    It's so disappointing to me that we can't as a club move on from the mistakes of the past and give ourselves a fresh start, for the good of the club, but instead Spags and Fitzy refuse to give up their quest for power and control, without a care about the damage they are doing to the club in the process.
