    I love a bold, clearly wrong, outlandish statement. ‘.... your entire team....’

    The following players say hi....

    Ben Hornby
    Dean Young
    Jason Nightingale
    Mark Gasnier
    Brett Morris
    Matt Cooper
    Beau Scott

    and EAD.

    By the way, is Trent Robinson coaching for charity?

    Gasnier = BOUGHT from French rugby and illegally too (back ended contract which he retired when it ballooned)
    Beau Scott = BOUGHT from Sharks

    Wrong. SKD was sacked by the roosters and Guerra and Elliot were unwanted. Watson was granted a release so not one of these was poached.

    Wow 2 players. How did I get it so wrong.
    What about the other 6? Where were they bought from?
    I didn’t include the entire squad because I didn’t want to embarrass you further.

    Why haven’t you answered my question about Robinson? Is he not being paid or is it for charity?

    seeing as you put so much value on players not having been bought from other clubs you must then respect our 2017 and 2018 squads

    2017
    Players never having played first grade for any other club
    Latrell Mitchell
    Tupou
    Manu
    Pearce
    Friend
    Guerra
    Matterson
    Watson
    Cordner
    Liu
    Evans
    Napa
    Skd

    Jwh 6 games for manly
    Taukeiaho 1 game for warriors

    Tetevano knights reject
    Keary souffs reject
    Gordon parra reject
    Ferguson everyone's reject

    Not a single player poached from another club.

    In 2018 we are adding Cronk and tedesco having lost guerra, skd, Watson, Evans from the above. Also like to let Nikorima go who didn’t play this year and potentially Pearce.

    And yes Robinson gets paid handsomely. Far more than the measley 50k poor Gasnier got paid

    Awesome. So why all the fuss over roosters recruits? Using your own logic above who exactly did we poach? I just listed our squad for your reference.

    I’m flattered you went to so much trouble but honestly, it’s a waste of time for 2 reasons:

    1) I couldn’t care less whether you guys bought or developed your players. It doesn’t bother me at all. Never has as that is how the game operates.

    2) I was replying to halfbackgimp asserting our entire 2010 side was bought(it clearly wasn’t). Also, did the gimp expect Bennett to coach for nothing(because we bought him also).

    In his defence he was pointing out the hypocrisy of a saints fan talking about us buying comps. That saints team regardless of how it was assembled was star studded and yet found a way to squeeze gas back into it. It was littered with rep players and a super coach to boot. Like you I have no issue with it at all but find the hypocrisy directed at us amazing.

    What revisionist history you have made

    BILLY SLATER PLAYED DUMMY HALF MOST OF THE FRICKING GAME

    Hooker in name only was Aitken who played as a 4th backrower

    Probably because they are a turd of a club that no one likes. Yes, that would be it. Buying your way to mediocrity is the Roosters way....

    He was set to play first grade, but after he signed with the Roosters Craig basically told him to get stuffed. Melbourne supported him through all his injuries during the start of his career and as soon as he was healthy the roosters stole him

    No. He told a blatant lie and was called on it and seems to have run away and hidden.
    And not all Saints fans are the same. Just like you seem rational and halfbackgimp isn’t.

    Not quite. Didn’t sound like he was getting a run either way. Obviously he wasn’t happy. But no problem it Easts fault. Again!

    Those guys where recruited from other clubs junior ranks by that "crafty" recruitment officer of yours Sullivan. The Roosters are scum from top to bottom.

    Sullivan and Waldron were the two rats behind the Storm salary cap problems. Scum should have been kicked out of the comp in 2010
