On a side note I'm surprised that Isaah Yeo & Waqa Blake were overlooked.
An aunt of mine hates Mal with a passion for that comment.
The following article was published on the NRL's website yesterday -
These threads always deliver, I don't take anything seriously in here because it's usually fuelled by "that bloke from my club" style logic, entertaining none the less
The following article was published yesterday afternoon on the NRL's website -
Edited According to the information below the NRL will be adding up to two players to the Immortals list every four years
HALL OF FAME INDUCTION PARAMETERS – PLAYER
Minimum two (2) inductions – Maximum four (4) inductions per annual cycle (see Cycle) In the event players, outside of the top four tally the same number of votes as those within the top four – a countback mechanism will be executed to determine who received the higher number of five (5) point votes, four (4) point votes, three (3) point votes, etc. (see Table.3)
INDUCTION PARAMETERS – IMMORTALS
Minimum of one (1) induction – Maximum two (2) inductions per four (4) year cycle
The NRL rules state Max 2 players - Minimum of 1 every four years
Is the ratio correct when you consider that between 8 and 16 players can be elevated to the hall of fame in the same time-frame
We could get a situation where 8 players are added to the hall of fame and 2 are elevated to Immortal status
Does that seem right to you or should Immortal Status be a little more exclusive?
Personally I would prefer to see 2 or 3 players maximum elevated to Immortal status for any decade (by decade, I mean the decade we mainly associate them with - for example Beetson started in the 60s and finished in the 80s but he's a 70s player to most people's minds)
Once the places are full, that's it - no more
If that logic is followed the following players and eras are represented
Pre War - As now officially closed - Messenger, Brown, Burge
50's - Churchill, Provan
60's - Raper, Gasnier, Langlands
70's - Fulton, Beetson
80's - Lewis, Maninga
90's - Johns
That means we have 8 spaces left for the previous decades (absolute tops)
Should we severely limit immortal status or should be we increasing the numbers of immortals at a rate of 1 every second year
Of course. He got gifted a tonne of cash, and the reigns of a Queensland and Australian side that were unbeatable.
Sorry but you lost me after "Paul Kent". I could not care less what he thinks on anything.
My second cousin's step son's dog loves him.
TBH if Mal's an immortal, then Laurie Daley deserves to be too. Mal played his best footy at the Raiders from 89-91, then Laurie hit his straps and was the Raiders best player from 92-94 (rest of Mal's career). They were about as good as each other in 91. Mal probably had better longevity, but Daley is the Raiders best ever player.
Mate, you needed to read beyond that - as that was merely an opening line
The rest was of my thunkering
I have edited so you can care
He was a lot younger back then
Who hasn't said things they've regretted?
You only have to read the Bulldogs v Broncos thread from last night to find a sock full of muppets saying stupid things they no doubt regretted soon after
I'll forgive him his trespasses.............. not so sure I can forgive his Queenslanderness, but maybe one day I'll be man enough to. I live in hope
I’m sure he does regret it, but the fact that main stream media tip toes around it will ensure it lingers forever.
He should man up and address the issue. This will give everyone an idea of what his real feelings are and give everyone a chance to move on.
As it stands, he sounds like a hypocrite.
Where is this 95 quote from Meninga ?
Im just a bit confused with the choices its a bit hard to pick a player that never actually played any test matches for australia dave brown but congratulations to them all i think meninga should of been there before johns and im still confused how johns got there it was a pitty vote for him at the time not saying hes not a great player but statistics wise hes number 5
or 6 place in the halfbacks alone
This times by a thousand.
Hall of Famers only
Edit: Sterling should be an Immortal and maybe Stuart should be as well. Mick Cronin and Ray Price must be a great chance to be Immortals in the future as well.
Brett Mullins is the best ever fullback.
Tim Brasher had him covered easy, shame he played in some of the worst teams of all time.
Ken Irvine should get serious consideration.
